Walt Disney Animation Studios just announced they're working on an animated adventure comedy titled Frozen and expect to deliver it to theaters in November 2013. Frozen will feature the voices of Kristen Bell (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Tony Award winner Idina Menzel, and will be directed by Chris Buck (Surf's Up).
The official synopsis: "In Frozen, a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, so Anna (voice of Bell) must team up with Kristoff, a daring mountain man, on the grandest of journeys to find the Snow Queen (voice of Menzel) and put an end to the icy spell. Encountering Everest-like extremes, mystical creatures and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction."
Bell's character, Anna, is described as a "young dreamer about to take the adventure of a lifetime."
According to Disney, Frozen will include original songs by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.
