I’m probably late on this bandwagon, but I just learned about Disney’s latest fairytale project, “Frozen.” It’s a reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Snow Queen.” Like “Tangled” back in 2010, “Frozen” will be digitally rendered, and luckily we have some concept art to show us what it might look like. According to Disney’s website, the film is set for a November 17th, 2013 release. Originally, Disney provided this plot synopsis:
In Frozen, a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, so Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) must team up with Kristoff, a daring mountain man, on the grandest of journeys to find the Snow Queen (voice of Idina Menzel) and put an end to the icy spell. Encountering Everest-like extremes, mystical creatures and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.
But as of July 30th, the story has been slightly altered:
When Anna is cursed by her estranged sister, the cold-hearted Snow Queen, Anna’s only hope of reversing the curse is to survive a perilous but thrilling journey across an icy and unforgiving landscape. Joined by a rugged, thrill-seeking outdoorsman, his one-antlered reindeer and a hapless snowman, Anna must race against time, conquer the elements and battle an army of menacing snowmen if she ever hopes to melt her frozen heart.
On top of all this greatness, the lead characters will be voiced by Idina Menzel (Snow Queen), and Kristin Bell. It’s well documented that Idina has a great voice, but will Kristin also be singing? That remains to be seen. Meanwhile, I hope they don’t make the characters eyes too buggy. That sort of bother me with “Tangled.” Let me know what you think.
