Vertical Entertainment has recently acquired the US distribution rights to Russian studio Wizart’s loosely based adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s iconic fairy tale, The Snow Queen. The 3D CG animated feature focuses on a brave girl who goes on a journey in order to save her brother from the clutches of the evil and powerful Snow Queen.
Produced by Timur Bekmambetov, The Snow Queen features direction by Maxim Sveshnikov and Vlad Barbe based on a script by Barbe and Vadim Sveshnikov. The feature is produced by Yuri Moskvin, Vladimir Nikolaev, Olga Sinelshchikova, Sergey Rapoport, Alexander Ligay and Bekmambetov.
The Snow Queen’s success in Ukraine, Brazil, South Korea, Israel, Turkey, UAE, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia earlier this year prompted Wizart Animation to start working on a sequel titled The Snow king, which focuses on the adventures of one of the first pic’s characters, the troll named Orm.
