‘Snow Queen 2’ Sells to 10 Territories, Adds Hollywood Cast

LONDON — Wizart Animation and Timur Bekmambetov’s 3D toonpic “The Snow Queen: Journey Continues” has attached cast and lined up a day-and-date December release in more than 10 countries.

The second installment of the CGI franchise, features Sharlto Copley (“District 9,” “Elysium”) as Orm, Bella Thorne (“Blended”) as Gerda, Isabelle Fuhrman (“The Hunger Games,” “Orphan”) as Alfida and Sean Bean (“Lord of the Rings,” “Game of Thrones”) as General Arrog.

Thorn will also sing an original song for the film.

Inspired by the classic fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen, “Snow Queen: Journey Continues” focuses on the exploits of Gerda and Orm, the troll whose victory over the Snow Queen has given his fellow trolls a taste for freedom. Comically exaggerating his exploits, Orm spins a web of lies and claims that he is destined to marry the princess and inherit her riches, only to find himself on another perilous adventure as he tries to protect the world from eternal winter.

Wizart, one of the fastest growing animation studios in Russia, produced “The Snow Queen,” which was shown in more than 35 countries.

“The Snow Queen 2” is directed by Alexey Tsitsilin, written by Tsitsilin, Alexey Zamyslov and Vladimir Nikolaev, and produced by Bekmambetov, Yuri Moskvin, Vladimir Nikolaev and Diana Yurinova.

It will have a day-and-date release in the U.K., Poland, Israel, South Korea, the former Yugoslavia countries, Baltic States, the Middle East, Turkey, Malaysia and Thailand in December. It will be released in China in 2015.
