Frozen Official Description
Fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey—teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven—to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom.
Frozen was directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee. It was originally released in 2013. The story was based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen. Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez wrote the songs for Frozen and Christophe Beck composed the score. The film would become the highest grossing animated film of all time during its theatrical run (it has since been surpassed by Frozen II and The Super Mario Bros Movie). It won Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song.
The success of Frozen continues today. Since 2013, Frozen has kicked off a franchise with new films, shorts, attractions, merchandise, books, and more. Currently Disney is working on Frozen III and a new land is set to open later this year at Hong Kong Disneyland that is themed to Arendelle.
