Via Yahoo, Walt Disney Animation Studios has released character poses for several of the known characters from its upcoming feature, Frozen, along with some new fresh faces. Character descriptions as well as the photo gallery can be seen below.
Anna (voice of Kristen Bell)
Anna is more daring than graceful and, at times, can act before she thinks. But she’s also the most optimistic and caring person you’ll ever meet. She longs to reconnect with her sister, Elsa, as they were close during their childhood. When Elsa accidentally unleashes a magical secret that locks the kingdom of Arendelle in an eternal winter, Anna embarks on a dangerous adventure to make things right. Armed with only her fearlessness, a never-give-up attitude and her faith in others, Anna is determined to save both her kingdom and her family.
