Starting tonight, three new stars will take the roles of Elsa, Anna, and Hans in this adaptation of the beloved Disney film.

The role of Elsa will be played by Ciara Renée, who previously starred as Esmeralda in The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and as Hawkgirl in CW’s Arrowverse.

The role of Hans has also gotten a shake up, as Ryan McCartan takes the role of the handsome villain. You might recognize McCartan from his roles as Diggy Smalls from Liv & Maddie, Brad Majors in the remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Fiyero in Wicked.
