As first reported by Stitch Kingdom back in March, Disney today confirmed a series of new shorts based on a new franchise titled Frozen Northern Lights. As also reported by Stitch Kingdom, the franchise will kick off this summer with a book release from Random House titled Frozen Northern Lights: Journey to the Lights. The 224 page book positions itself as an adaptation of the new franchise’s storyline, with the publisher’s descriptions as follows:
‘Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and their friends from Disney Frozen are helping Little Rock the troll earn his tracking crystal. Join them as they embark on a mountain adventure under the Northern Lights! This special novelization features 8 pages of spectacular photos of the real Northern Lights in a beautiful jacketed hardcover format. It’s perfect for children ages 6 to 9!’
Then this fall, a series of LEGO shorts featuring the original talent from Frozen will debut on Disney Channel. According to reports, there will be four new shorts in total. Below are some soundbites of Josh Gad (Olaf) talking about the new Frozen Northern Lights franchise and his experiences being part of the Frozen family.
