The oval windows on the train’s doors also feature Snowgie decals, along with the logos for World of Frozen and Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. There are also banners advertising the World of Frozen at the train station.
World of Frozen will open to guests on Monday, November 20, a week ahead of the first film’s 10th anniversary on November 27, 2023. A grand opening ceremony including a drone show was held on Thursday. During the ceremony, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed “Frozen” writer and director Jennifer Lee is working on both “Frozen 3” and “Frozen 4.” Iger first announced that Disney had “sequels in the works” for “Frozen,” “Toy Story,” and “Zootopia” in February 2023.
The first “Frozen” film proved to be a huge success for Disney. “Frozen” stars Kristen Bell as Princess Anna and Idina Menzel as Queen Elsa, Anna’s older sister with secret ice powers. After Elsa accidentally reveals her powers, she runs away. Anna, with help from snowman Olaf (Josh Gad) and ice carver Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), pursues Elsa. The film was written by Jennifer Lee from a story by her, Chris Buck, and Shane Morris. Buck and Lee directed “Frozen” with music by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. “Frozen” won two Oscars — Best Animated Feature and Best Song.
“Frozen II” was released in 2019, with Buck and Lee still at the helm. Set three years later, Elsa hears a strange voice calling her into the Enchanted Forest. She, Anna, Kristoff, and Olaf set out on a journey to find the voice and learn more about Anna and Elsa’s late parents. “Frozen 2” earned $1.45 billion at the global box office, and the film’s song “Into the Unknown” was nominated for Best Original Song at the 2020 Academy Awards.
In 2016, Maelstrom in the Norway Pavilion of EPCOT became Frozen Ever After. The pavilion later added a permanent meet-and-greet space for Anna and Elsa. Disney’s Hollywood Studios has For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along and the new “Frozen Holiday Surprise” show debuted at Magic Kingdom this month.
A “Frozen” area will also open as part of the Fantasy Springs expansion in Tokyo DisneySea on June 6, 2024. The Kingdom of Arendelle is under construction at Disneyland Paris, set to open in 2025, also with the Frozen Ever After ride.
“Frozen” is also represented on Disney Cruise Line with Arendelle – A Frozen Dining Adventure on the Disney Wish featuring dinner and a show with “Frozen” characters.
