Disney may not be pursuing a Frozen sequel just yet, but the studio certainly has more than enough going on to keep busy in Arendelle. There’s Frozen on ice, the short film Frozen Fever which is due to hit theaters with Cinderella on March 13th, the Frozen Broadway show and now, on top of all of that, it’s being reported that there’s a Frozen book in the works as well.
While Random House churns out three junior novelizations that continue Anna and Elsa’s story, Disney Press will go back to explore the events of Frozen from both Hans and Anna’s perspectives. Hit the jump for more on the upcoming Frozen book, A Frozen Heart.
According to Stitch Kingdom, Elizabeth Rudnick’s A Frozen Heart will be a 304-page novel for young adults that covers what’s going through Anna and Hans’ minds during their failed romance.
I adore Frozen, but I’ve got little to no interest in reading a Frozen book. However, a book about Hans and Anna’s relationship is a different story because that’s one of the weakest elements of the film. I always had a tough time accepting that Anna would fall for Hans so hard so fast, so perhaps A Frozen Heart will offer some much needed justification for that misguided love at first sight romance.
Here’s the synopsis for A Frozen Heart, which is due in stores on May 26, 2015:
Love is an open door. Or so Anna believed when she first met a handsome prince name Hans. A Frozen Heart tells the story of a lonely young woman who has been shut away from the world for most of her life. Her parents are dead, and her sister-the only person who might show her an ounce of love-is cold and distant. No wonder she jumps at the chance for love and companionship with a dashing stranger. But as Hans’ veneer of kindness melts away, Anna finds the love she was searching for all along from her sister Elsa. Told in alternating chapters from both Anna’s and Hans’ perspectives, A Frozen Heart delves into the couple’s failed romance, exploring their backstories, motivations, and ultimate separation.
