Some films are worth melting for and, on November 27, 2013, the world was introduced to the Academy Award®-winning film Frozen from Walt Disney Animation Studios. The global sensation has warmed the hearts of all ages, and both Frozen and its 2019 sequel, Frozen 2, are among the biggest animated films of all time. The enchanting story of sisters Anna and Elsa—along with their trusted companions Kristoff, Sven, and Olaf—has created a cultural phenomenon that has inspired fashion, theme park experiences, a Broadway masterpiece, and more. And, in 2022, Disney honored the Frozen cast – Idina Menzel (Elsa), Kristen Bell (Anna), Jonathan Groff (Kristoff), and Josh Gad (Olaf) – as Disney Legends for their work in bringing these characters to life on the big screen. Now, almost a decade later, the film is still a storytelling icon and continues to bring joy to families around the world with more adventures ahead including a third film in the franchise.
In honor of the film’s 10th anniversary, Disney is launching a 10-week countdown celebration with collaborations across the company. From Disney Parks and consumer products to music and community outreach, the Frozen fun is crystalizing in new and exciting ways. Over the next 10 weeks, fans of the film will enjoy surprise and delight announcements, content, and more. Kicking off the celebration, Disney has shared a special “thank you” message to the fans who keep the magic and joy of Frozen raging on. The “Frozen 10th Anniversary” spot features scenes from the beloved film, which is streaming on Disney+, as well as cherished moments from audiences around the world. Frozen touched the lives of many and, thanks to the devoted fans, will continue to create lifelong memories sparked by the true love of these treasured sisters.
In October, fans will return to Arendelle and reunite with some of their favorite characters in an all-new Disney Frozen: Forces of Nature podcast. This 12 episode audio-first storytelling podcast presented by Disney Publishing Worldwide, ABC Audio, and Macys brings Anna and Elsa together again as they work with a neighboring Queen to solve a mystery in the Enchanted Forest.
On November 20, 2023, the World of Frozen is opening up their gates and sharing the wonder of Frozen with guests at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. This first Frozen-themed land will extend the storytelling of the films as guests are invited to a Summer Snow Day celebration in Arendelle commemorating the day that Anna saved Elsa with an act of true love. Featuring two attractions, dining and shopping locations, and an interactive play experience, World of Frozen will bring the magic of Frozen to life like never before.
All of these exciting celebrations and more will be shared in the coming weeks as the countdown to the 10th anniversary continues. To learn more visit https://frozen.disney.com.
