Production is already underway so it's bit strange Walt Disney Animation Studios is just now bringing a co-director in to helm Frozen featuring Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel in lead voice roles. The studio's just announced Jennifer Lee, one of Wreck-It Ralph's screenwriters, will be joining Chris Buck (Surf's Up, Tarzan) on Disney's 53rd feature-length animated movie.
Frozen will hit theaters on November 27, 2013.
Announcing Lee's involvement as co-director, producer Peter Del Vecho stated: "Jenn has a real connection to the film and creates dynamic and relatable characters. Her sense of comedy, adventure and story structure paired with Chris Buck's vast experience and incredible instincts create an ideal situation for this film."
The official synopsis: "When a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, Anna, a fearless optimist, teams up with extreme mountain man Kristoff and his sidekick reindeer Sven on an epic journey to find Anna's sister Elsa, the Snow Queen, and put an end to her icy spell. Encountering mystical trolls, a funny snowman named Olaf, Everest-like extremes and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction."
