Disney Gets Frozen for November 2013

Walt Disney Animation Studios officially announced that Frozen (formerly The Snow Queen, which has gone from hand-drawn to CG), will open November 2013, directed by Chris Buck (Surf’s Up, Tarzan) and produced by  Peter Del Vecho (Winnie the Pooh, The Princess and the Frog). Inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen story but steering clear for now of an overt princess marketing campaign, Frozen features the vocal talents of Kristen Bell (Hit & Run) as Anna, a young dreamer, and Tony Award-winning Idina Menzel (Wicked) as Elsa, the Snow Queen. The movie will feature original songs by Broadway’s Robert Lopez (The Book of Mormon and Winnie the Pooh) and his wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez (Winnie the Pooh).

In Frozen,  a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, so Anna must team up with Kristoff, a daring mountain man, on the grandest of journeys to find the Snow Queen 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. In light of the Paperman breakthrough, is it too late to deploy the hybrid technique here?
