The Snow Queen

large_nlXfavGOoxKNaZWYjfByAunWBmEWhen the weather is not helping or the kids (and you) need a break, cuddle up with hot coco and treats to enjoy the dazzling story of the Snow Queen.

Based on the enduring, magical fairy-tale by Hans Christian Andersen, the Snow Queen follows the story of little orphan girl Gerda, who must defeat the evil Snow Queen who has taken over the kingdom and kidnapped Gerda’s brother, Kai. Accompanied by her pet ferret, Luta, and Orm the troll, Gerda embarks on a perilous journey across the icy wonderland, facing swashbuckling pirates and treacherous trolls, in a race against time to defeat the wicked Snow Queen, save Kai and bring warmth back to the hearts of people across the land.

A sweet and entertaining story with all the ingredients you need: adventure, humour, friendship, magic and family love

In selected cinemas from October 25, with a Blu-ray, DVD and digital release following on November 3, 2014.
