Idina Menzel Reprises FROZEN Role in New Animated Shorts

Idina Menzel will reprise her role as FROZEN’s Elsa in an all-new four-part animated series from the LEGO Group that will premiere on the Disney Channel this Fall!

Disney today announced “Frozen Northern Lights,” an original story from the kingdom of Arendelle spanning a collection of books, animated shorts from the LEGO Group and new digital extensions. Beginning in July, “Frozen” fans can follow Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff and Sven on an epic adventure to restore the glimmer of the Northern Lights.

The story titled, “Disney Frozen Northern Lights: Journey to the Lights,” published by Random House, will be introduced as a deluxe novelization in July ahead of an extended collection of books featuring the familiar characters fans know and love, as well as a brand new protagonist named, Little Rock. The storyline will be reimagined by the LEGO Group with four new animated shorts and a full compilation airing on Disney Channel this fall. The shorts will bring the unique brand of stylized animation and witty LEGO humor to the world of “Frozen,” with the voice talent from the movie reprising their roles.

In celebration of “Frozen Northern Lights,” the website will be updated with fun activities tied to the new story and Disney will launch a “Frozen”-inspired Instagram account @DisneyFrozen. Fans can continue to enjoy “Frozen” by liking @DisneyFrozen on Facebook.
