Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen is now available for purchase on Digital HD (the Blu-ray and on-demand versions will be released on March 18th). Included in the download (and also on the Blu-ray) is a new behind-the-scenes bonus feature called “The Making of Frozen” starring three of the film’s voice actors: Josh Gad (Olaf), Jonathan Groff (Kristoff), and Kristen Bell (Anna).
As reported recently in USA Today, “The Making of Frozen” bonus feature is a behind-the-scenes look at how an animated movie comes together. Frozen songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez wrote a new song for the special feature. The team decided to create an elaborate Hollywood musical style music video for it. They enlisted the help of director and choreographer Kenny Ortega, who spent two days at the Roy E. Disney Animation Building on the Disney Studios lot in Burbank, California, directing the video shoot.
Bobby Lopez said:
“We were lucky enough to have three of the stars of the film who serve as tour guides for the ‘making of” experience. There were huge cranes with cameras on them for the shoot, dozens of assistant directors running around with headsets. It was like Disney animation turned into an old Hollywood musical.”
The digital download of Frozen is also available in Disney’s new Disney Movies Anywhere digital movie service app.
