THE STORY OF FROZEN: MAKING A DISNEY ANIMATED CLASSIC

I wish I had some pretty pictures to go with this, but they weren't included in the press release, and though we can request them, a). it's a holiday so probably no one is in the office (I hope for their sake), and b). we'll have a house full of people today, so I won't be checking e-mail for approval.

The program airs 9/2 though, so I wanted to get this posted. It looks like it could be a really great show to watch for anyone who is curious about, or already loves the movie 'Frozen.' I love that it's Josh Gad hosting...Olaf is my absolute fave. :)




THE STORY OF FROZEN:
MAKING A DISNEY ANIMATED CLASSIC

Hosted by Josh Gad, the Voice of Olaf

All-New Exclusive ABC Special Features Interviews with Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff,  Josh Gad as well as John Lasseter and the Frozen Filmmaking Team

AN UNPRECEDENTED BEHIND-THE-SCENES LOOK AT THE MAKING OF A MODERN MOVIE BASED ON A TIMELESS TALE, “THE STORY OF FROZEN: MAKING A DISNEY ANIMATED CLASSIC” PREMIERES TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 8:00-9:00 PM ET, WITH A LOOK TOWARD THE NEXT CHAPTER FOR ANNA, ELSA AND FRIENDS

FEATURING AN EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PEEK OF “BIG HERO 6,” WALT DISNEY ANIMATION STUDIOS’ NEXT COMEDY ACTION ADVENTURE & MORE

“The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic” is an all-new, original special in a first-of-its-kind 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.   A breathtaking and fantastic saga, the special tells the real story of making a modern movie based on a timeless tale that nearly overnight became a cultural touchstone for legions of fans.

“The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic” airs 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, 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 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.”

The program will culminate in an exclusive sneak peek at the action-packed comedy-adventure “Big Hero 6,” currently in production at Walt Disney Animation Studios –under wraps until now – as the team prepares their next big-screen epic.

“The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic” is hosted by star Josh Gad (voice of Olaf) and features interviews with “Frozen” stars Kristen Bell (voice of Anna) and Idina Menzel (voice of Elsa) as well as Walt Disney Animation Studios’ chief creative officer and “Frozen” executive producer John Lasseter, Academy Award®-winning filmmakers, including directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, producer Peter Del Vecho, and songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez. This one-hour special will also feature exclusive insights and commentary from art director Mike Giaimo and talented artists from the art direction, animation and effects teams. The exclusive sneak peek of “Big Hero 6” is presented by the film’s directors, Don Hall and Chris Williams.

“The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic” is produced by Lincoln Square Productions. Jeanmarie Condon is senior executive producer and Rudy Bednar is director of “The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic.”

  27. I loved Frozen, I bet my oldest son would love this show. I will let him know about it and possibly DVR it. I rarely get to watch television unless it is DVR

  28. I have to watch this with my daughter tomorrow! We are huge Frozen fans, we especially love Olaf!

  29. I am going to confess something here: I am just not a big fan of animated movies. I didn't much care for them when I was a kid. Okay, that is a lie. When I was a kid I did like them. But I am not one of those people who just continued to love them.

    So, I didn't see Frozen. Yeah, I think I am in a minority of 1, since the whole world seems to have seen this movie. And it actually got rave reviews from folks who like animated stuff about as much as I do. So, I think I might have to jump into the deep end and actually watch this one.

    Especially since I am *almost positive* that the new threat in Storybrook (aka the TV show Once Upon A Time) is someone from this movie. I am sure people all over the country were SO EXITED at the season finale of Once Upon A Time, while I was scratching my head... who the heck is that???? And then I read somewhere the word "Frozen" and it became clear. Or still unclear, but I got why I didn't get it.

  32. Well, Gosh. If you don't have any pictures, I don't think I want to watch it. It's kinda like reading, you have to have pictures in books. LOL! Sounds good.
