Frozen fans! I received a cool announcement (no pun intended) about a special show coming up on Tuesday, September 2nd on ABC at 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. Central Time, all about Disney’s Frozen movie:
“THE STORY OF FROZEN: MAKING A DISNEY ANIMATED CLASSIC”
Hosted by Josh Gad, the Voice of Olaf
This all new exclusive ABC special features Interviews with Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad as well as John Lasseter and the Frozen Filmmaking Team.
It’s a behind-the-scenes look at the making of a modern movie based on a timeless tale, with a look toward the next chapter for Anna, Elsa and friends. (I’ve been wondering if they’re going to make a sequel…)
“The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic” is an all-new, original special in a first-of-its-kind collaboration with Lincoln Square Productions and Walt Disney Animation Studios. The special ventures behind-the-scenes for an exclusive look at the origins and evolution of the Academy Award®-winning film “Frozen,” now the biggest animated feature of all time. A breathtaking and fantastic saga, the special tells the real story of making a modern movie based on a timeless tale that nearly overnight became a cultural touchstone for legions of fans.
Viewers will get a rare look inside Walt Disney Animation Studios and unprecedented access to the creative team that brought “Frozen” to life. Throughout the one-hour special, the audience will hear from “Frozen” stars Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, the directors, songwriters, producer, artists and chief creative officer John Lasseter—the team who dreamed of making a cherished Hans Christian Andersen story into a big-screen animated musical. Viewers will take a journey to the beautiful Norwegian villages and landscapes that inspired the look of the fictional kingdom of Arendelle and see images and footage from the research trips to Norway, Quebec and points beyond that helped create the film’s unforgettable look and feel.
This special will also include some exciting announcements about the next chapter of “Frozen” and a never-before-seen preview of “Frozen” characters Anna, Elsa and Kristoff on an upcoming episode of ABC’s smash-hit “Once Upon a Time.”
The program will culminate in an exclusive sneak peek at the action-packed comedy-adventure “Big Hero 6,” currently in production at Walt Disney Animation Studios –under wraps until now – as the team prepares their next big-screen epic.
