My daughter is a “Frozen” fanatic! She’s seen the movie too many times to keep count and sings along with the soundtrack at the top of her lungs. Her room is covered in “Frozen” posters, she has all the dolls and is has an entire back to school wardrobe of t-shirts, underwear, socks and sweatshirts featuring the smiling faces of Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf. She also has a new light up backpack to take to pre-k that makes me a little dizzy when I look at it! Her latest acquisition? “Frozen” bed sheets and blanket so she can dream all night of her favorite Disney film — so sorry, “Cinderella” you’ve officially been bumped to #2!
As for me, I am amazed at the stunning beauty of “Frozen.” It is like no other animation I’ve seen before. I was blown away by the scene where Elsa built her Ice Palace, it felt and looked so real. You could see the incredible details of the snowflakes in that scene, from the ones on Elsa’s cape to the floor of the palace she builds – to the columns, the staircase and even the chandelier. Apparently it took more than 50 animators to create that scene alone!
I love getting an inside look at how animated films like this are made. Now “Frozen” fans will get a behind-the-scenes look at their favorite film with the one-hour special “The Story of Frozen: Making A Disney Animated Classic” that premieres on Tuesday, September 2 at 8 pm ET/PT on ABC Television.
Hosted by Josh Gad, the voice of Olaf, viewers will get a rare look inside Walt Disney Animation Studios and unprecedented access to the creative team that brought “Frozen” to life. Throughout the special, the audience will hear from “Frozen” stars Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, the directors, songwriters, producer, artists and chief creative officer John Lasseter—the team who dreamed of making a cherished Hans Christian Andersen story into a big-screen animated musical. Viewers will take a journey to the beautiful Norwegian villages and landscapes that inspired the look of the fictional kingdom of Arendelle and see images and footage from the research trips to Norway, Quebec and points beyond that all helped to create the film’s unforgettable look and feel.
Viewers will also learn other tidbits about making “Frozen” such as learning how one of the movie’s most endearing scenes and songs “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” almost didn’t make it into the final cut. Find out how and why by checking out this clip from the special:
My daughter is excited that I’m letting her stay up on a school night to watch this special and I’m excited that I’ll have someone to cuddle with and watch! Will you be watching?
Now it’s your turn to share. What is your favorite Disney movie?
