Disney Gives Wreck-It Ralph Writer Co-Directing Gig On Their Next Movie

Chris Buck is to get a co-director on Frozen. According to a new press release from Disney, Jennifer Lee will be adding to her co-writing duties on the film to also take the second seat at the film’s top table.

Lee worked on the script for Wreck-It Ralph, and also has live action films in the works elsewhere:

Lee’s screen adaptation of John Steinbeck’s The Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Knights is being produced by Troika Pictures.

She has an original screenplay in development with Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way, and her original script Lucid Dreams was optioned by Wolfgang Peterson’s Radiant Productions. Lee holds an MFA in Film from Columbia University and a BA in English from the University of New Hampshire.

Frozen is an adaptation of The Snow Queen. Sort of. Here’s the new official blurb, which is more or less the same as the last one:

Featuring the voices of Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, Frozen is the coolest comedy-adventure ever to hit the big screen. When a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, Anna, 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, 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.

Most sites persist in using out of date and inaccurate concept art when reporting on this film. Let me help them out. Here’s the first online look at one of the film’s characters:

One year from today, Frozen will have been in US cinemas for just two days.
