Disney’s First ‘Frozen’ Trailer Shows the Comedy, But the Adventure Is Coming

Nothing balances beauty and treachery quite like snow. A snow-covered landscape can stun with spectacular aesthetics, and inspire a shudder for the harsh climate that might befall all those traveling through. As such, it’s near perfect for an animated adventure story. Toss in the inherent comedy in a good fumbling through a mountain of fallen fluff or a futile attempt to cross a frozen lake, and you’ve scored that Disney charm. The first trailer for the company’s next CGI feature Frozen focuses on the light: a buck-toothed snowman (played by Josh Gad) strives to recover his lost carrot nose before a nearby reindeer gobbles it up. But those familiar with the source material, written by legendary fableman Hans Christian Anderson, will know that a good deal of thrills are coming as well.

The story will follow two tundra journeyers (Kristen Bell and Jonathan Groff) on a quest to find the Snow Queen (Idina Menzel) who has trapped her kingdom in a perpetuity of winter. Enjoy the visually stunning goofball humor in the first teaser, and catch Frozen in theaters Nov. 27.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
