Walt Disney Animation Studios (WDAS) has given voice to its extreme mountain man from the comedy-adventure Frozen. Tony Award nominee Jonathan Groff (Broadway's Spring Awakening, TV's Glee) is on board to help bring Kristoff to life in the epic journey slated for the big screen November 27, 2013.
Groff appears in the independent feature C.O.G., which is part of 2013 Sundance Film Festival. The Pennsylvania native made his big-screen debut in Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock and went on to appear in the independent drama Twelve Thirty and The Conspirator. His TV credits include Fox's Glee, the Starz series Boss and CBS' The Good Wife. On stage, in addition to the Tony Award-winning musical Spring Awakening, Groff appeared in the Public Theater's revival of Hair and off-Broadway plays Prayer for My Enemy and The Submission, among others. He made his West End debut in Ira Levin's Deathtrap, and appeared in the 2010 Tony Award-winning Red by John Logan at the Mark Taper Forum this year.
ABOUT THE MOVIE
From the studio behind 2010's Tangled and this year's Wreck-It Ralph, Walt Disney Animation Studios presents Frozen, the most daring comedy-adventure ever to hit the big screen. When a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, Anna (voice of Kristen Bell), a fearless optimist, teams up with extreme mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his sidekick reindeer Sven on an epic journey to find Anna's sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), the Snow Queen, and put an end to her icy spell. Encountering mystical trolls, an amazing and comedic snowman named Olaf, Everest-like conditions and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction. The film is directed by Chris Buck (Tarzan, Surf's Up) and Jennifer Lee (screenwriter, Wreck-It Ralph), and produced by Peter Del Vecho (Winnie the Pooh, The Princess and the Frog). Featuring music from Tony-winner Robert Lopez (The Book of Mormon, Avenue Q) and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (In Transit), Frozen journeys into theaters November 27, 2013, in Disney Digital 3D in select theaters.
