Internet leakers continue to provide a better marketing campaign for Frozen than Disney. Today, images surfaced online which seem to confirm the designs of the film's central sisters, Anna and Elsa, that we glimpsed in the fake posters released a few months back.
The display also provides our first look at a CG Olaf, who looks to be the film's comic relief character. Olaf is voiced by Josh Gad, who recently played Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak in the Ashton Kutcher-starring Steve Jobs biopic, jOBS. The cast also includes Glee's Idina Menzel and Jonathan Groff. Original songs are being composed by husband-and-wife team Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (Winnie the Pooh), while the score is composed by Paperman's Christophe Beck.
Interestingly, The Rotoscopers point out, an official Disney Facebook page, Disney Reads, also posted the above publicity shot for the movie, using the exact same character models from the fake posters. The image has since been removed.
Expect the actual marketing for Frozen to amp up significantly in the coming months, after the eventual teaser that will precede Monsters University next month. This is certainly shaping up to be another Tangled-quality film for the studio - now if they'd only treat it as such. Frozen is directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, and hits cinemas on 27th November (US)/6th December (UK).
