ABC to Air Special on Making of Disney’s ‘Frozen’

ABC will give “Frozen” fans a behind-the scenes-look at its development in a new special, “The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic.”

The special is hosted by Josh Gad, who voiced the character Olaf in the film, and will feature interviews with stars Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff and Gad. Jon Lasseter, chief creative officer for Disney Animated Studios and Pixar, and members of the filmmaking team will also be featured. Additionally, viewers will see footage of the Norwegian villages and landscapes that inspired the film’s look and design.

The one-hour special, produced by Lincoln Square Productions, will also include announcements about the next chapter of “Frozen,” along with a never-before-seen preview of “Frozen” characters Anna, Elsa and Kristoff on an upcoming episode of ABC’s “Once Upon a Time.”

It will also feature a sneak peek from Disney Animated Studios’ upcoming action-comedy film, “Big Hero 6,” which will be released in theaters Nov. 7.

“The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic” will air at 8 p.m. on Sept. 2 on ABC.
