Frozen Hits Theaters TODAY!

By Official Disney Store Blogger, Nov 27, 2013 3:00 AM

Walt Disney Animation Studio's beautiful animated masterpiece, Frozen, snows into theaters today!

Follow fearless optimist Anna on an icy adventure as she teams up with rugged mountain man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven to find her sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter.



  • Filmmakers invited a real-life reindeer into the Walt Disney Animation Studios, observing the animal’s physical makeup and mannerisms, which were later caricatured in the making of Kristoff’s reindeer buddy Sven in “Frozen.”

  • Rosemaling, a style of decorative folk art found throughout Norway’s history, appears throughout the film—on clothing, within the architecture and is even evoked in Elsa’s magic and her icy creations. 

 Be sure to check out Frozen this holiday season and visit for a winter wonderland of toys, clothes and more inspired by the highly-anticipated film.
