Disney has announced a brand new audio series for their popular Frozen franchise, which will come from Disney Publishing Worldwide, ABC Audio, and Walt Disney Animation Studios, called Frozen: Forces of Nature, according to Deadline.
The new podcast series will take place between Frozen 2 and 3 and is slated for 12 episodes. The series will be presented by ABC News’ chief meteorologist, Ginger Zee.
Elsa and Anna (voiced by Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell in the franchise films) will make their returns to the franchise, and will be joined by brand new characters named Queen Disa, ruler of Sankerhus, and Lord Wolfgang, nephew of the Duke of Weselton.
According to the official synopsis: “The series follows Queen Anna, who has a lot on her plate – there are visitors in her Kingdom, a friend in need, and even the Duke of Weselton’s nephew skulking around – so when the Spirits of Nature start acting up, she knows she has to solve the problem – and fast – before things get more out of control. But when Anna and Elsa travel to the Enchanted Forest, they find mysterious copper machines that are disrupting the natural order of things. Who made these machines and what are they doing in the forest? And more importantly, how do Anna and Elsa stop them?”
ABC Audio’s vice president Liz Alesse issued the following statement: “ABC Audio is thrilled to introduce the power of audio storytelling to a new generation through the Disney Frozen Podcast. This immersive series created in partnership with Disney Publishing Worldwide and Walt Disney Animation Studios taps into listeners’ imagination and offers parents an engaging, screen-free experience to share with their children.”
Frozen 3 is currently in the works but does not have an official release date at this time.
