Four new character posters and a trailer for Disney's newest animated adventure Frozen have dropped.
Frozen tells the story of fearless optimist Anna who teams up with Kristoff in an epic journey, encountering Everest-like conditions, and a hilarious snowman named Olaf in a race to find Anna's sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom in eternal winter. It is based on the fairy tale The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Anderson.
Chris Buck (Tarzan) and Jennifer Lee (Wreck It Ralph) direct the fun. Lee is the first woman to ever co-direct a Disney animated feature.
Frozen opens November 27th.
The trailer is full of whimsical comic fun, meet cute scenes and impeccably timed sight gags anchored by the scene stealing Olaf the Snowman.
The Snowman, Olaf with the constantly detaching body parts is voiced by Josh Gad (Jobs and the short lived TV series 1600 Penn). The main comic relief role gives this Frozen sucker many opportunities to steal the show. Olaf even has his own laugh filled trailer.
Anna, is voiced by Kristen Bell. She is seeking a cure for the Frozen curse that has come over her kingdom.
The source of that curse comes from her sister Elsa, voiced by the talented Idina Menzel. She is the Snow Queen of lore… but is pure Disney in so many ways.
The Duke of Wesselton is married to Anna. He is voiced by the manic voiced, nasally sounding Alan Tudyk, a big clue that this Duke of Ease is not the ideal match for Anna.
Jonathan Groff provides the voice of Kristoff, a mountain man who will aid Anna in her quest to end the Frozen curse that has come over her kingdom.
The reindeer's name is Sven and he is the Scrat the squirrel (the Ice Age movies) of Frozen. Expect Olaf and he to engage in many balletic sight gags.
