The original voice cast of 'Frozen' is returning for some Lego-based animated shorts later this year, and a series of novels is also being released, to tell a brand new tale 'Northern Lights'.
Fans of Frozen won’t have to wait long for more material from the franchise, with Disney unveiling a new original story entitled 'Frozen Northern Lights' this week, a multi-media project that will be told via various art forms including books and short animated Lego videos.
All the original fan favourites will be getting back together, including Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Josh Gad and Jonathan Groff, in a new tale that will see the gang try to restore the Northern Lights. The series will include a new protagonist joining the gang, named Little Rock.

“It's a new story that follows Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff and, of course, Sven on an epic adventure to restore the Northern Lights,” the franchise’s star Josh Gad explained in a newly released video on Tuesday (June 21st). “All of the voice talent from the original film is back, this is going to be unbelievable guys!”
With a series of books the first to be released, in November Lego will release a series of four animated shorts telling the same tale, all aired around Thanksgiving this year.
“Natural phenomenon meets cultural phenomenon in this all new story, 'Frozen Northern Lights’,” Andrew Sugerman, executive vice president of Disney Publishing Worldwide, said in a statement. “We're excited to share this new adventure and offer fans great new ways to connect with their favorite characters thanks to a host of related books, digital games and activities.”
Random House will be publishing the first instalment of this new series, entitled ‘Disney Frozen Northern Lights: Journey to the Lights’ and written by Suzanne Francis, on July 5th. Nine more novels are to be released by the end of 2016.
