Today, the Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph, has just released the new trailer for Frozen, a Disney-fied comic adventure based on the Hans Christian Andersen tale of The Snow Queen.

This November, in time for a holiday release, Frozen is a Danish tale about two sisters, Anna (Kristen Bell) and Elsa (Idina Menzel) with a difference of opinion. Temperamental Elsa has used her powers to freeze the kingdom of Arendelle in an eternal winter, so it is up to Anna to rein her in. She is teamed up with mountain man Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), his loyal reindeer Sven and Olaf (Josh Gad) a short snowman that keeps falling apart. Along the way, they encounter Everest-like conditions, trolls and more.

Frozen is the first Disney feature to be filmed in ultra widescreen film format since 1959’s Sleeping Beauty. It no doubt changed its title from The Snow Queen to Frozen for the same reason that Rapunzel was changed to Tangled – so boys would feel comfortable going to a “princess” movie.
Frozen 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). It features music from Tony® winner Robert Lopez (The Book of Mormon, Avenue Q) and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (In Transit). Frozen will arrive in theaters in 3D on November 27, 2013.
