Jennifer Lee To Co-Direct Disney's "Frozen"

"Wreck-It Ralph" co-scribe Jennifer Lee is set to join "Tarzan" and "Surf's Up" helmer Chris Buck as co-director on Disney Animation's 3D CG animated feature "Frozen."

An adaptation of the classic fairy tale "The Snow Queen" by Hans Christian Andersen, the story follows Anna (Kristen Bell) who is cursed by her estranged sister, the cold-hearted Snow Queen Elsa (Idina Menzel), Anna’s only hope of reversing the curse is to survive a perilous but thrilling journey across an icy and unforgiving landscape.

Joined by a rugged, thrill-seeking outdoorsman Kristoff, his one-antlered reindeer and a hapless snowman, Anna must race against time, conquer the elements and battle an army of frozen sinister warriors if she ever hopes to melt her frozen heart.

Peter Del Vecho is producing and Broadway's Robert Lopez ("The Book of Mormon," "Avenue Q") and Kristen Anderson-Lopez ("In Transit") are creating original songs for the project.
