It’s been almost an entire year since Disney’s “Frozen 2” hit screens worldwide, which means you’ve had plenty of time to get ready for this year’s Frozen Fan Fest. Whether you’ve been preparing by re-watching the film a million and two times over, singing your favorite “Frozen 2” tunes, or showing off your “Frozen”-inspired looks, the time has come to join fans around the globe for this year’s ultimate celebration of all things “Frozen”!
On October 18th, you’re invited to tune-in on for the first-ever “Frozen” Virtual Playdate hosted by Ayesha Curry. The event will feature an entire day’s worth of new and curated content you can enjoy right from the comfort of your own home, complete with digital adventures and immersive activities featuring exciting new product offerings inspired by “Frozen 2.” Right when you thought it couldn’t get any better – you’ll also get an exclusive first-look at the trailer for “Once Upon a Snowman,” the new short from Walt Disney Animation Studios, coming to Disney+ on October 23.
Fans of all ages will also have the chance to participate in immersive activities including a sing-a-long, choreographed dance lesson, an American Sign Language tutorial of “Show Yourself,” and the unique opportunity to learn how to draw Olaf with Trent Correy and Dan Abraham, the directors of “Once Upon a Snowman.” Additionally, a special “Frozen Fashion Week” fashion show brought to you from the United Kingdom will also air as part of the Playdate, complete with imaginative vignettes and never-before-seen styles that lean into key elements of the story and its characters. Be sure to also keep an eye out throughout the duration of the Virtual Playdate for exciting guest appearances by social influencers and “Frozen” fans, as well as Radio Disney’s Cameron McLeod and Jason Maybaum from Disney Channel’s “Raven’s Home.”
