From the creators of "Tangled" and "Wreck-It-Ralph," Frozen is based on Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen," but the story is adapted to feature the sisterly bond between Anna and her older sister Elsa, who was born with the power to create snow and ice.

Kristen Bell voices the character Anna, a young princess who embarks on an adventure to save both her kingdom and her family.

Elsa, known as the Snow Queen, is haunted by the moment her magic nearly killed her younger sister.

Isolated, with her powers getting stronger by the day, Elsa accidentally triggers an eternal winter that she can't stop, leading to Anna's dangerous adventure to save her sister and her kingdom of Arendelle.

Anna is accompanied on her journey by a reindeer sidekick and a comical snowman named Olaf. While Anna takes on more of an action role than Disney princesses of the past like Snow White and Bell, Disney's latest animated feature does have a handsome prince named Hans, along with an mountain man named Kristoff.

Anna and Elsa won't officially become Disney-recognized princesses until 2014, when they become the 12th and 13th princesses in the franchise group.
