A “first look” trailer for Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee’s Frozen is online. While the 53rd Disney animated feature is loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen, this has no discernable connection to the tale, playing a bit like a Scrat short about a snowman (which, in turn, played sort of like a Looney Tunes cartoon).
Still, it’s fun, and the animation is lovely. The full film stars Kristen Bell as “Anna,” the lead, and Idina Menzel as the Snow Queen. It hits theaters this Thanksgiving (or that weekend, anyway), on November 27, 2013.
