Walt Disney Studios UK and Entertainment Weekly bring us our first look at Walt Disney Animated Studios' 53rd animated feature, Frozen (hi-res image via /Film). The loose adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen, Frozen sees Anna, "a fearless optimist", (voiced by Kristen Bell) team up with buff mountain man Kristoff to try and stop the perpetual winter cast by the magic of Anna's sister Elsa (Idina Menzel), better known as the Snow Queen. In the actual film, we'll also meet Kristoff's "sidekick reindeer Sven", as well as "a funny snowman named Olaf", but in this piece of concept art, we just meet our two protagonists.
Check out this close up of Anna and Kristoff.
Above you can see Anna (who bears somewhat of a striking resemblance to Tangled's Rapunzel) and Kristoff; I like the character designs, and one thing's for sure, this is going to be a fantastic looking film! EW also grabbed a few words with directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee about the film's themes and production.
Frozen hits cinemas late next year, 27th November, 2013 in the US, and 20th December, 2013 in the UK. Might the trailer screen with Monsters, Inc. 3D (which opens Wednesday in America). Meanwhile, we're still waiting for Wreck-It Ralph over here, which arrives in UK cinemas on 8th February, 2013 (one week earlier than previously planned).
