It might be summer, but America still has “Frozen” fever. After the animated movie was released on Nov. 27, 2013, it proceeded to win two Academy Awards, take over the Disney theme parks and even have its characters on “Once Upon a Time.” Now “Frozen” is getting a one-hour making-of special that will air on ABC.
“The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic” will premiere on Sept. 2 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The special will look inside Walt Disney Animation Studios and allow audiences to hear from directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, stars Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell, Disney CCO John Lasseter and the songwriters, artists and producers behind the project.
Beyond looking behind-the-scenes of “Frozen,” the special will also look into the franchise’s future. A new preview of “Once Upon a Time” Season 4 will introduce audiences to the live action versions of Anna (Elizabeth Lail), Elsa (Georgina Haig) and Kristoff (Scott Michael Foster), and “some exciting announcements” about the “next chapter” of “Frozen” will be revealed as well.
Culminating the special is a look at what Disney hopes to be its next hit: “Big Hero 6.”
