After losing the chance to voice Rapunzel in 2010’s Tangled, lifelong Disney fan Kristen Bell landed the lead in the studio’s new animated musical Frozen, inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale ”The Snow Queen.” In this version, the magical snow-controlling queen Elsa (Idina Menzel) has unintentionally cursed the kingdom of Arendelle with eternal winter, leaving her plucky sister Anna (Bell) to try to end the chilling spell. Happily, Anna doesn’t fit the usual Disney-princess mold. As Bell explains, her character proves that ”goofy girls, girls that are nerdy, girls that put their foot in their mouth, girls that don’t have great posture or can’t figure out what clothes match each other — they can also be heroines.”
