The Russian feature-length animated film Snow Queen 2 will be coming to theaters in the US and Canada this year, the company Wizart nimation announced at the MIP TV exhibition in Cannes. The release is planned in time to the Christmas holidays. The rights to the film were sold to eOne.

The sequel to Russian animation The Snow Queen (2012) includes a voice cast of Sean Bean (Game of Thrones), Sharlto Copley (Maleficent), Bella Thorne (Blended) and Isabelle Fuhrman (The Hunger Games).

The film, based on the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, tells the story of the troll Orm who has become a hero after the victory over the evil Snow Queen.

The film was directed by Alexey Tsitsilin and produced by are Yuri Moskvin, Vladimir Nikolaev, Diana Yurinova and Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted). Wizart’s animation has already sold in close to 80 markets, including UK, Brazil, China, Germany, France, Japan, South Korea and Russia.

In late 2014 the film was nominated for a Golden Globe award. It was first released to the big screen in Russia in early 2015 and has earned more than $20 million at the box office.
