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. The film is directed by Chris Buck ("Tarzan," "Surf's Up") and Jennifer Lee (screenwriter, "Wreck-It Ralph"), and produced by Peter Del Vecho ("Winnie the Pooh," "The Princess and the Frog"). Featuring music from Tony® winner Robert Lopez ("The Book of Mormon," "Avenue Q") and Kristen Anderson-Lopez ("In Transit").2013-12-06T17:00:01.000Z

Frozen is loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen and is about Anna’s quest to find her sister, Queen Elsa, and convince her to end the perpetual winter that has frozen their kingdom. The screenplay was written by Jennifer Lee, who is also received “Story By” credit with Chris Buck (Tarzan, Surf’s Up) and Shane Morris. Buck and Lee co-directed the film, making Lee the first woman to direct a Disney Animation feature film.

Frozen grossed $1.27 billion worldwide, earning $400.7 million from North America alone. It’s the highest-grossing animated film of all time. It also won Oscars for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song for “Let It Go.”

A sequel to Frozen is in the works, as Kristen Bell confirmed to Collider in March that she was heading back to the recording studio. Disney also produced Frozen Fever, a short film that played before Cinderella in 2015.
