'Frozen' Trailer: Kristen Bell, Josh Gad Star in Animated Disney Title (Video)
The theatrical trailer for Walt Disney Pictures Frozen, featuring Josh Gad, Kristen Bell and Jonathan Groff, has debuted.
The comedy revolves around Anna (Bell) and Kristoff (Groff) who set off on a journey to find Anna's sister, Elsa (Idina Menzel), "whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter." 1600 Penn's Gad plays a snowman named Olaf.
At Disney's August fan event in Anaheim, D23, Frozen directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee said that they wanted the film to evoke classic animated films while remaining contemporary.
The film aims to be "timeless and timely. … We just kept pushing to make sure there are themes in this movie that make it relatable," Buck said at the event.
The title is set to hit theaters Nov. 27 during a busy Thanksgiving week. Spike Lee's thriller Oldboy, Jason Statham's action title Homefront and Jennifer Hudson's holiday musical drama Black Nativity are also scheduled for the same date.
