Special airing Sept. 2 offers an exclusive look at the origins and evolution of the Academy Award-winning film along with a preview of Anna, Elsa and Kristoff on an upcoming episode of ABC series ‘Once Upon a Time.’
“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. The special ventures behind the scenes for an exclusive look at the origins and evolution of the Academy Award-winning film Frozen, now officially the biggest animated feature of all time.
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.
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 fantasy series 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.
