Just when you thought you escaped Frozen (and its hit song "Let It Go"), Once Upon a Time is about to bring it back again. The ABC series teased the appearance of Elsa, voiced by Idina Menzel in the hit Disney movie, at the end of the third season and E! News can confirm the show is looking to add two more Frozen characters along with the ice queen.
Once Upon a Time will also introduce Elsa's sister Anna, voiced by Kristen Bell in the film, and Kristoff, voiced by Jonathan Groff in the movie.
From what we've heard, the characters won't stray too far from their movie counterparts…aside from the whole animated thing. Elsa is afraid she'll hurt the person she loves the most, her sister, after accidentally making eternal winter in Arendelle. Anna is described as impulsive and plucky and values her relationship with Elsa above everything else. When we meet Kristoff, who fell in love with Anna in the movie, he's now adjusting to life in Arendelle alongside Anna and Elsa. All characters are described as a large recurring part with various episode numbers for each.
"Well, it's funny, we're not going to redo the movie, because we just don't feel like it's in anyone's interest for us to redo it," Once Upon a Time co-creator Adam Horowitz told E! News after the finale. "But what we are going to do, we're not ready to tell you. But what we can say is we're very aware of what we think makes this character from Frozen so special and we want to honor that and make sure that what we do is in the universe of everyone fell in love with this past year."
Bell told E! News she'd be SO down for playing Anna when the character debuts on Once Upon a Time next season and the producers are aware of that.
"Well Kristen Bell was Anna. We saw the interview you guys did with her and we're going to start our process. [In regards to] Kristen Bell, there's no bigger fans than us, whether it be Frozen or Veronica Mars," Horowtiz told us.
Frozen. Once Upon a Time. It's happening and we're totally fine with that because the cold never bothered us anyway.
