Fans just can’t get enough of Disney’s Frozen. The tale of unusual friendships and the power of sisterly love will soon get it’s own “Making Of” special to air on the ABC Network. “The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic” is an all-new, unprecedented collaboration with Lincoln Square Productions and Walt Disney Animation Studios. The special ventures behind-the-scenes for an exclusive look at the origins and evolution of the Academy Award- winning film “Frozen,” now the biggest animated feature of all time.
“The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic” will air Tuesday, September 2 (8:00 -9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
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 one-hour special, the audience will hear from “Frozen” stars Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, the directors, songwriters, producer and 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 Arendelle – the fictional kingdom – and see images and footage from the research trips to Norway, Quebec and points beyond that helped create the film’s unforgettable look and feel.
This special will also include some exciting announcements about the next chapter of “Frozen” and a never-before-seen preview of “Frozen” characters Anna, Elsa and Kristoff on an upcoming episode of ABC’s smash-hit “Once Upon a Time.”
