Disney’s upcoming animated feature Frozen just landed an additional director.  The Mouse House announced today that Jennifer Lee will be joining Chris Buck (Tarzan) as co-director on the princess movie.  Kristen Bell voices a young dreamer named Anna who teams up with “a daring mountain man” to find the Snow Queen (Idina Menzel) and put an end to a spell that has trapped their kingdom in eternal winter.  The film harkens back to some of Disney’s earlier, more music-centered films as it will feature original songs from Robert Lopez (The Book of Mormon) and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (In Transit). Lee has already contributed to the screenplay for Frozen, so it appears she’s been involved with the project for a while.  She most recently was credited as one of the screenwriters for Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph, so hopefully she can bring some of the humor and heart of that film over to Frozen. »
