Rumored: Disney Developing Live-Action ‘Snow Queen’ Film Not Related to ‘Frozen’. In 2013, Frozen took the world by snow storm and has become an instant Disney Classic sparking two canon short films (Frozen Fever and Olaf’s Frozen Adventure), a non-canon LEGO short film series, At Home With Olaf shorts series, a Broadway adaption of the film, appearance of the characters in ABC’s Once Upon a Time, and a sequel equally as impressive as the first film simply called: Frozen II.
It’s no secret that Disney likes to not only expand on current intellectual properties, but they are not afraid to reimagine stories that have explored previously. One such story is The Snow Queen, an original fairytale by none other than famed Danish Author, Hans Christen Andersen. It is well known that Frozen is very loosely based on this tale, but it seems Disney may want to further explore the original story as was the original intention for Frozen.
Rumor has it, Disney is looking to film a live-action Snow Queen film that would be released in theaters sometime in the near future and have nothing to do with the Frozen franchise. Currently, Kristin Burr is the only name tied to the project and is said to be producing the film, but no formal casting choices or production team members other than Burr have been announced at the time of writing.
“The Snow Queen is an original fairy tale by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. It was first published 21 December 1844 in New Fairy Tales. First Volume. Second Collection. 1845. The story centers on the struggle between good and evil as experienced by Gerda and her friend, Kai.”
Do you think it’s too soon for another Snow Queen movie from Disney? Or are you excited to see them venture down a new path closer to the original story by Hans Christian Andersen? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
