‘The Art of Frozen II’Category: Books and Music
Disney fans and Frozen II fans will definitely enjoy reading about how the filmmakers created the wondrous movie. The new book, “The Art of Frozen 2” is filled with information from the filmmakers and plenty of images showing how they crafted the characters and the scenery.
Frozen 2 is a brilliant sequel with the return of the characters that overjoyed viewers year ago. But creating and recreating them was not easy. The designers had to check out how different hairstyles and clothing would look on each character. It required plenty of CG imaging and color combinations to get the right look.
Between the pages of this book readers see how the film came to be with so many color images and fascinating facts about the artwork and the story. This sequel is beautifully crafted and some audiences thought it is better than the original film, which is hard to do since that movie became an instant classic and the characters are now iconic.
“Frozen 2 is really a continuation of the first film; it’s all part of the same story,” stated Director Chris Buck, Chief Creative Officer Jennifer Lee, and Producer Peter Del Vecho in the Forward to the book. “We stayed true to the characters and are following them on the next chapter of their story.”
Sisters Anna and Elsa are on a new journey, along with Kristoff, Olaf, and of course, Sven. Each one of these characters is looked at in the book as well as a few new ones that make an appearance in the film. The book is divided into five sections: Arendelle, Air, Earth, Fire, and Water. Each one of the elements is an important part of the story and the images in the book bring them to readers in a stunning way.
This is one of the most complete “Art of” books with plenty of background information to go along with all the beautiful artwork. It is a great cocktail table book to flip through and for fans of animation and it is a good look at the making of the film. This is an insider’s look at the movie that is capturing the hearts of moviegoers everywhere.
“The Art of Frozen II” is a treasure for all fans of the film.
