Updated Synopsis For Walt Disney’s Frozen Reveals New Characters And Plot Twists

Disney were, for some time, working on an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen and I suppose they still are, though the ongoing tweaks to the plot and characters of Frozen justify the name change more and more each time I read some new info.

A month or so ago, the official blurb read like this:

In Frozen, a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, so Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) must team up with Kristoff, a daring mountain man, on the grandest of journeys to find the Snow Queen (voice of Idina Menzel) and put an end to the icy spell. Encountering Everest-like extremes, mystical creatures and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.

And now I’ve procured something a little more detailed for us:

When Anna is cursed by her estranged sister, the cold-hearted Snow Queen, Anna’s only hope of reversing the curse is to survive a perilous but thrilling journey across an icy and unforgiving landscape. Joined by a rugged, thrill-seeking outdoorsman, his one-antlered reindeer and a hapless snowman, Anna must race against time, conquer the elements and battle an army of menacing snowmen if she ever hopes to melt her frozen heart.

That’s Disney’s current official description of the film.

So, that Snow Queen character remains, but everything else is stepping further and further away from the original tale.

Not intrinsically a bad thing, and the reindeer and snowman characters are just the kind of thing Disney have made great play of before – which, to put it another way, marks the film out as a touch unoriginal.

Sometime Tim Burton collaborator and longtime Disney director and animator Chris Buck is in charge of Frozen, with Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel in the lead roles of Anna and her cold hearted sister. The US release is set for November next year. We may be lucky and see a teaser with either Finding Nemo, Wreck-It Ralph or this December’s 3D re-release of the first Monsters Inc. I can’t quite believe we’ll get through winter without seeing something.
