Walt Disney Animation Gives ‘The Snow Queen’ New Life, Retitled ‘Frozen’ – But Will It Be Hand Drawn?
Posted on Thursday, December 22nd, 2011 by Peter Sciretta
Walt Disney Studios has announced the title for their Holiday 2013 movie — Frozen. All of the Hollywood tradepapers are reporting that the movie in question is the Pixar film announced at D23 Expo: Bob Peterson’s “The Untitled Pixar Movie About Dinosaurs“. This is not the case. It seems that the confusion came as the Dinosaur project originally had the November 27th, 2013 date, and it appears Walt Disney Animation has now taken that date for their own release. What is the film? The project formerly known as The Snow Queen.
We have independently confirmed this with three sources. I was first tipped off when Pixar animators were tweeting the news, expressing their surprise as even they had not heard about the title. I confirmed with Disney Publicity that it wasn’t a Pixar movie after all, right before BleedingCool tipped me that the project might actually be The Snow Queen. And have since confirmed their report with people in the know.
