Interview Mark Harrison 6 Dec 2013 - 06:27

Mark chats to the co-directors of Disney's Frozen, Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee...

If you've checked out our review already, you'll know that we adored Frozen, the latest addition to the Disney canon. It's an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen, a project that has been in development limbo at the House of Mouse since the days of Walt Disney himself.

Back in 1943, Disney and Samuel Goldwyn collaborated on a biopic of the author, including animated adaptations of his stories. Goldwyn eventually parted ways with the studio to make the live-action 1952 movie, Hans Christian Andersen, leading to a number of animated projects that had been going on at Disney, including both The Snow Queen and The Little Mermaid, were shelved.

Some time after 1989's The Little Mermaid kicked off the Disney Renaissance, the studio came back around to look at the story in the late 1990s. »
