Dark Horse Comics has announced it has landed a deal to release a three issue mini-series based on Disney’s Frozen animated movie.
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 good thing about this announcement isn’t that Dark Horse is releasing this three issue mini-series, nor is the news that additional Disney titles are coming our way in this deal, but that it feels like Disney is feeling a tad guilty about yanking properties away from Dark Horse and are legitimately trying to make good on what happened years ago.
Disney Frozen is scheduled to arrive in the summer of 2018.
