The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic, an all-new, original special collaboration between Lincoln Square Productions and Walt Disney Animation Studios, will air September 2 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
The special goes behind-the-scenes for an exclusive look at the origins and evolution of the Academy Award-winning film Frozen.
Viewers will get a rare look inside Walt Disney Animation Studios and unprecedented access to the creative team behind Frozen, and will hear from Frozen stars Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, the directors, songwriters, producer and artists and chief creative officer John Lasseter.
Viewers will take a journey to the beautiful Norwegian villages and landscapes that inspired the look of Arendelle - the fictional kingdom - and see images and footage from the research trips to Norway, Quebec and points beyond that helped create the film’s look and feel.
This special will also include some announcements about the next chapter of Frozen and a never-before-seen preview of Frozen characters Anna, Elsa and Kristoff on an upcoming episode of ABC’s Once Upon a Time.
The program comes to a conclusion with an exclusive sneak peek at Big Hero 6, currently in production at Walt Disney Animation Studios.
