Until this point, I had been underwhelmed by what I’d seen from Disney’s new animated movie musical, Frozen. It seemed kind of cute, but with too much emphasis on the goofy snowman Olaf (Josh Gad). But now Disney has released a new trailer that makes me incredibly excited to see the film. The film centers on a young dreamer named Anna (Kristen Bell) who teams up with Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), an extreme mountain man, to find the Snow Queen, Elsa (Idina Menzel), and put an end to a spell that has trapped their kingdom in eternal winter. Elsa is also Anna’s sister, and this trailer shows that Elsa isn’t some one-dimensional villain. She has a power she can’t control and is being persecuted for it. Anna and Elsa are sisters, and seeing Anna try to help her sister rather than defeat some super-powered baddie is far more interesting. The trailer also gives us a sample of one of the musical numbers, it sounds good.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also features the voices of Alan Tudyk, Santino Fontana, and Chris Williams. Frozen opens in 3D on November 27th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Frozen:
When a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, Anna (voice of Kristen Bell), a fearless optimist, teams up with extreme mountain man Kristoff and his sidekick reindeer Sven on an epic journey to find Anna’s sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), the Snow Queen, and put an end to her icy spell. Encountering mystical trolls, a funny snowman named Olaf, Everest-like extremes and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.
