A ‘raft of exciting new titles’ have been added to the 58th Cork Film Festival taking place November 9 to 17, 2013 in Cork, Ireland. Two major new Disney pictures FROZEN 3D and SAVING MR. BANKS lead the new films. In the big-screen animation comedy adventure, FROZEN 3D, directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey – teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven – to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf (voice of Josh Gad), Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom. Two-time Academy Award®–winner Emma Thompson and fellow double Oscar®-winner Tom Hanks topline Disney’s SAVING MR. BANKS, directed by John Lee Hancock, and inspired by the extraordinary, untold backstory of how Disney’s classic Mary Poppins made it to the screen.
