Frozen doesn’t exactly sound like a compelling film title, but its first trailer already has me sold.
Disney unveiled today the first trailer for its newest animated comedy – Frozen. Here’s the official synopsis from Disney:
Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind “Tangled” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” presents “Frozen,” a stunning big-screen comedy adventure. 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.
Admit it – you chuckled at least a little bit. While the above trailer had nothing to do with the movie, the actual film should be pretty good. It’s co-directed by Chris Buck (Tarzan) and Jennifer Lee (screenwriter, Wreck It Ralph). In even better news, Robert Lopez, the co-creator of broadway hit Avenue Q, is writing some of the music.
Frozen will be in theaters this Winter.
