Whether Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel like it or not, they are forever tied together thanks to the mega Disney movie franchise that is Frozen. The two actresses play sisters Anna and Elsa in Frozen and the new Frozen 2 sequel that opens this week. As part of the promotional campaign for the film, the pair were honored with their own stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday.
Their stars—the 2681st and 2682nd, in the category of motion pictures and live theatre/performance, respectively—are located in front of Hollywood’s historic Pantages Theatre at 6225 Hollywood Boulevard near the famous corner of Hollywood and Vine.
Helping to honor Bell were actress/musician Jackie Tohn, and creator of “The Good Place” Michael Schur. Singing Menzel’s praises were Alan Horn, co-chairman and chief creative officer for The Walt Disney Studios, and Josh Gad, who provides the voice of Olaf in “Frozen” and “Frozen 2.” Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti presented certificates to Bell and Menzel, thanking them on behalf of the people of Los Angeles.

In Disney’s Frozen 2 we explore possible answers to some of the burning questions left by the first movie… Why was Elsa born with magical powers? What truths about the past await Elsa as she ventures into the unknown to the enchanted forests and dark seas beyond Arendelle? The answers are calling her but also threatening her kingdom. Together with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, she’ll face a dangerous but remarkable journey.
In “Frozen,” Elsa feared her powers were too much for the world. In “Frozen 2,” she must hope they are enough.
From the Academy Award-winning team—directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, producer Peter Del Vecho and songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez—and featuring the voices of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Frozen 2” opens in U.S. theaters on Nov. 22, 2019.
