The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic
This special ventures behind the scenes for an exclusive look at the origins and evolution of the Academy Award winning film “Frozen.” A breathtaking and fantastic saga – the real story of making of a modern movie based on a very old tale, that nearly overnight became a cultural touchstone for legions of young 21st century fans. Viewers will get a rare look inside the Disney Animation Studios. They will hear from the animators, director, composers and intrepid studio boss John Lasseter, the stars of the film: all of whom dreamed of making a cherished Hans Christian Andersen story into a big screen animated musical. We will take the audience to the beautiful Norwegian villages and landscapes that inspired the look of Arendelle, the fictional Frozen kingdom, and see the video journal made by the talented Art Director Mike Giaimo and his team as they travelled the gorgeous Norwegian north country to research the unforgettable look and feel they achieved.
