On November 19, 2013, Walt Disney Animation Studio’s “Frozen” had its world premiere at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. A snowy-white carpet stood in for the typical red, as celebrity attendants were treated to hot chocolate from Ghirardelli and an actual mountain of snow with ice carvings.
Present for the opening of the film were cast members Kristen Bell, Santino Fontana, Josh Gad, Jonathan Groff, Edie McClurg, Spencer Ganus, Tyree Brown, and Eva Bella, as well as Co-directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, Producer Peter Del Vecho, Executive Producer John Lasseter. Other luminaries attending included Bailee Madison, Dave Foley, and Kevin Sorbo.
“Frozen” will be opening in general theaters on November 27, 2013, but will have a special early engagement at the El Capitan Theatre from November 22, 2013, to January 5, 2014.
