What with "Frozen - Live at the Hyperion" opening in late May at Disney California Adventure Park and Epcot's "Frozen Ever After" attraction opening its doors later this morning, Anna & Elsa have had a very busy month.
So what will these Scandinavian sisters be doing for an encore? Would you believe joining forces with the LEGO Group? Anna & Elsa - along with Kristoff, Olaf & Sven - will be starring in four new Frozen animated shorts that will air on the Disney Channel. Not only that, but these new LEGO shorts will be based on a brand-new published-by-Random-House story, "Frozen Northern Lights."
The fun officially gets underway in July as Frozen fans can once again return to the kingdom of Arendelle thanks to a cleverly interconnected collection of books, animated shorts from the LEGO group as well as digital games & activities.
"So what awaits 'Frozen' fans once they return to Arendelle?," you ask. "Frozen Northern Lights" tells the story of Little Rock, one of those trolls that adopted young Kristoff & Sven in the original Frozen film. Little Rock needs help earning his tracking crystal. So Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Sven & Olaf join this tiny troll on an epic mountain adventure to restore the glimmer of the Northern Lights.
The hardcover novelization of this story -- "Disney Frozen Northern Lights: Journey to the Lights" - will hit store shelves next month. As for those four animated shorts, the LEGO Group will definitely be bringing its unique style of animation and quirky sense of humor to the world of Frozen.
And did I mention that the vocal talent from the original Disney Frozen will be returning to reprise their roles? Or that a full compilation of all four of the LEGO "Frozen Northern Lights" shorts will air on the Disney Channel later this Fall?
So are you ready to see "Let It Go" get the LEGO treatment?
