The Unstoppable Walt Disney Production Frozen – Trailer

frozenWalt Disney has a long history of creating film and television magic enjoyed not only by children but also adults. Well, they did it again with the 2013 movie, Frozen, which is a 3D computer animated musical fantasy comedy and the 53rd animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series. Frozen tells the story of a courageous princess who begins an adventurous journey with a rough and tough iceman, his beloved pet reindeer, and an ill-fated snowman. Together, they help the princess look for her long-lost sister, who happens to have trapped the kingdom in an eternal winter using her icy powers.

Exploration into making a live action/animated biography film based on Hans Christian Andersen first began in 1937, well before the “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” premier. Talks continued over the years while at the same time, other great films were released to include “The Little Mermaid”, “Thumbelina”, and “The Ugly Duckling”. Although the merged Disney-Goldwyn produced a live action film version in 1952 called “Hans Christian Andersen” followed by a new adaptation of “The Snow Queen” in the late 1990s, several attempts to achieve the initial goal failed.

However, after the release of “Toy Story”, new life was breathed into the early vision of creating a unique animated film. A new project was developed in 2010, but once again, issues in bringing the Snow Queen character to life arose. After more than 70 years and huge success of the movie “Tangled”, Walt Disney executives felt confident that this time to make the one film dreamed of for so long.

Thanks to the incredible writing talent of Jennifer Lee and Del Vecho, coupled with voices of Christophe Beck, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff, Santino Fontana, Idina Menzel, Josh Gad, and others, Frozen premiered on November 19, 2013, followed by a general opening just eight days later. Immediately, the movie received outstanding acclaim from top critics and movie goers alike. It was this past weekend that Frozen is now the fifth highest grossing film in history. Because of its popularity, the movie can still be seen in theaters, with viewers patiently waiting for the DVD release.
