I will admit when I first saw the notice that Dark Horse is going to release a comic based on Disney’s Frozen, I was a little scared. Dark Horse does have a reputation for the twisted and deranged. I forgot there is a special Disney imprint, so it’s a lot more innocent than previously suspected.
If you’re one of the parents who complained about the Frozen short before Coco, maybe stop reading here. Disney has locked onto a brand and they are running with it with about as much force as the Marvel Universe.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Disney Frozen #1 finds Queen Elsa and Princess Anna trying to get to the bottom of things when the peace of their beloved kingdom is disrupted. There’s a wild animal loose in the village, destruction in the forest, and unrest brewing in a nearby kingdom. Luckily, Elsa and Anna will have the help of Olaf, Kristoff . . . and a mysterious, adventurous young woman to restore peace in their kingdom.
“We are incredibly excited to collaborate with Disney on this great project,” explained Mike Richardson, Dark Horse president and founder. “Frozen has legions of fans, many of whom are here at Dark Horse. I’ve personally enjoyed repeated viewings with my granddaughter, and I look forward to sharing this new series with her.”
The first issue of Disney Frozen is scheduled for a summer 2018 release. Dark Horse and Disney will announce additional comics in the coming months.
