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.

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.
