No compensation was received for this post. I was invited on a press trip to cover the film. All thoughts/opinions remain solely that of the author.
I imagine that one day, my son will have some type of involvement in film. Even before I broke the news to him that I would be covering the red carpet for Disney’s soon-to-be-released Winter animate film Frozen, he was telling me bits and pieces about the story, which is based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale The Snow Queen.
Slated to debut in theaters this Thanksgiving (November 27th, 2013), Frozen tells the story of Princess Anna who sets out on a journey to find her sister Queen Elsa. When Elsa’s icy powers trap the kingdom of Arendelle in an endless winter freeze, it will be up to her sister, mountain man Kristoff, and reindeeer sidekick Sven to save her and the kingdom.
During my time in LA this coming week, I’ll get snow-deep into the film for the latest. Along with interviewing Kristen Bell, we’ll get an opportunity to speak with the directors and producer of the film, learn how the animation team brought the characters to life, and get a lesson in hand-drawn and computer animation.
The winter is always a busy season for film and in addition to the premiere of Frozen, Disney will release Saving Mr. Banks, which details the story of the making of Mary Poppins, and the 50th Anniversary Edition of the classic, Mary Poppins, on Blu-ray and DVD.
Perfectly timed for the holidays, Disney has released some beautiful Frozen-inspired dolls, plush and toys that I can’t wait to share with you.
