Bell Comments On FROZEN & Menzel, Character Images Revealed
Popular stage and screen performer Kristen Bell opens up about her new role as an animated feature film heroine in Disney's hotly anticipated new big screen tuner FROZEN in a new interview, as well as comments on her starry assortment of co-stars.
Additionally, new images from FROZEN have also just been released, depicting the eternally wintery city of Arendelle and some of its various friendly and furry inhabitants who play pivotal roles in the action, adventure and drama of the sister-centered tale which also features the voice talents of GLEE star and Broadway regular Jonathan Groff and BOOK OF MORMON Tony-winner Josh Gad.
Besides Groff and Gad, FROZEN also is highlighted by two other major theatrical talents - no less than Tony Award winner Idina Menzel and current Rodgers & Hammerstein'S CINDERELLA Broadway prince Santino Fontana.
In speaking of her affection for the animated genre in general, Bell relates, "Since I was 4 years old, I dreamed of being in a Disney animated film. It was the first goal I ever set for myself. It seemed like it would be a very unrealistic one."
Bell comments that her forthright character, Anna, is not the typical Disney princess, though - "He's the more Disney-type of guy," Bell says of Fontana's character, a prince named Kristoff.
Yet, Bell adds of the daunting challenge presented by sharing a soundstage - and, more to the point, recording studio - with vocal powerhouse Menzel was outright "terrifying."
"It's like getting on a bike path with Lance Armstrong. She's one of the best singers on the planet," Bell says.

FROZEN is set to be released November 27.
