Disney Animation’s ‘Frozen’ Hitting Theaters November 2013

Disney

While Pixar may get all the animation kudos as the being the best around, don’t count out the original Mouse House and what they’re still able to bring to the table. ‘Tangled’ and ‘Winnie the Pooh’ were bonafide hits for Walt Disney Animation, and ‘Wreck-It Ralph‘ looks to be a sure-fire hit. Now they’ve got a new film in the works for 2013 that looks to be another cool cartoon.

Disney sent out a press release today announcing that in November, 2013, ‘Frozen’ will be released in theaters. ‘Frozen’ has been in the works for quite some time and now that they’ve got a direction and cast things are shaping up nicely. Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel are the leads with ‘Winnie the Pooh’ songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez attached to do the music.

Here’s more form the official press release:

Walt Disney Animation Studios presents an epic tale of adventure and comedy in “Frozen,” a computer-animated feature film slated for the big screen in November 2013. Directed by Chris Buck (“Tarzan,” “Surf’s Up”) and produced by Peter Del Vecho (“Winnie the Pooh,” “The Princess and the Frog”), “Frozen” features the vocal talents of film/TV/stage star Kristen Bell as Anna, a young dreamer about to take the adventure of a lifetime, and Tony Award ®-winning actress Idina Menzel as Elsa the Snow Queen. The movie will feature original songs by Broadway greats Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.

In “Frozen,” a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, so Anna (voice of Bell) must team up with Kristoff, a daring mountain man, on the grandest of journeys to find the Snow Queen (voice of 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.

Frozen‘ looks like a different kind of adventure for WDA. They had mentioned before that they were straying away from princess stories to focus on more original type tales, but strong female leads in animated films are always going to be around, whether they’re princesses or not, and this looks to be no exception.
