Arendelle, a vibrant and magical land, officially opens on November 20th
Elsa, Anna, and even Olaf. What would it be like to encounter them in real life rather than on a screen? Wouldn’t this be an uproar not only for children but also for all Frozen fans? On the 17th, imagination was translated into reality in Hong Kong. Hong Kong Disneyland has unveiled a theme park that looks like a replica of ‘Frozen’ from the movie.
Hong Kong Disneyland will introduce a ‘Frozen’ themed land starting on the 20th. Visitors can enjoy an immersive destination that combines fascinating stories, beloved characters, culture, stunning scenery, fantastic melodies, and cutting-edge technology. In addition to attractions full of fun and emotion, such as Frozen Ever After and Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleigh, the summer snow festival also provides unforgettable experiences.
While traveling through the world of Frozen, you can see iconic scenes from the movie “Frozen,” such as Elsa’s Ice Palace, Arendelle Castle, and the Clock Tower. A special audience participation experience is also possible with Anna and Elsa at the Forest Playhouse.
To commemorate this, Hong Kong Disneyland held an opening ceremony for the ‘Frozen’ themed land on the 17th, inviting about 300 media representatives and influencers from around the world. The event included Walt Disney Company CEO Robert Iger, Disney Experience Chairman Josh D’Amaro, Disney Parks International President and CEO Jill Estorino, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort CEO Michael Moriarty, and guests from the Oscar-winning ‘Frozen’ 1 and 2. Jennifer Lee, writer and director of the episode and Chief Creative Officer of Walt Disney Animation Studios, also attended and graced the event.
CEO Robert Iger said, “The ‘Frozen’ animation is one of the most successful works in Disney history, proving the power of great storytelling that is the foundation of the Walt Disney Company.” He added, “Disney has been on this path for 100 years. “Our commitment to storytelling and creativity will continue for the next 100 years.”
He said, “Walt Disney Animation Studio is currently in the process of producing the film ‘Frozen 3.’ I am happy to be able to show the world of Frozen to people first at Hong Kong Disneyland.”
“Disney’s Imagineers worked with the Disney Animation team to perfectly realize every detail,” said Chairman Josh D’Amaro. “The world of Frozen is a place where people can have fun and make wonderful memories with their loved ones.” “It will take you to another world,” he explained.
Director Jennifer Lee said, “When I first produced the ‘Frozen’ movie, I never dreamed that the story of two sisters would touch the hearts of people around the world, and that one day everyone would have the opportunity to walk and experience the kingdom of Arendelle in person. “I’m glad to see the world of Frozen come to life,” he said.
The celebration took place along the frozen Arendelle Bay. The Arendelle Royal Choir presented a beautiful medley from ‘Frozen.’ Elsa then used ice magic to summon the image of Olaf and create an enchanting atmosphere. Anna declared that the gates of Arendelle were open, and the event concluded with a spectacular light show and a drone flying into the sky.
