The Story

In the kingdom of Arendelle, a young Elsa prepares for her coronation while harboring an icy secret: she has exceptional powers. While Elsa tries to withdraw from society, her sister, Anna, teems with excitement and romance over the thought of exploring and experiencing the world around her.

After the coronation ceremony goes awry, Anna sets out on a journey to reunite with her sister, accompanied by ice harvester Kristoff (who's a bit of a fixer-upper), his reindeer Sven, and Olaf, a hilarious and heartwarming snowman.
