On July 29, 2012, a new story plot was given by The Walt Disney Animation Studios: "When Anna is cursed by her estranged sister, the cold-hearted Snow Queen, Anna’s only hope of reversing the curse is to survive a perilous but thrilling journey across an icy and unforgiving landscape. Joined by a rugged, thrill-seeking outdoorsman, his one-antlered reindeer and a hapless snowman, Anna must race against time, conquer the elements and battle an army of menacing snowmen if she ever hopes to melt her frozen heart."

Broadway songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, who previously wrote songs for the 2011 film Winnie the Pooh, have been confirmed to write original songs for the film.
