Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Frozen” kicks off a cross-country tour this week with Ore-Ida®, serving free treats to “Frozen” fans from Philadelphia to Los Angeles. Featuring Ore-Ida hash browns and fries, activities, crafts, themed lunch boxes and other giveaways, the tour will be covered as it happens on the “Frozen” Fun Tour website, which will share pictures of the fun to friends and family nationwide. Directed by Chris Buck (“Tarzan,” “Surf’s Up”) and Jennifer Lee (screenwriter, “Wreck-It Ralph”), who also wrote the screenplay, and produced by Peter Del Vecho (“Winnie the Pooh,” “The Princess and the Frog”) “Frozen” hits theaters in 3D on Nov. 27, 2013.
“Inspired by Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf, and their story about the strength of family, the ‘Frozen’ food truck and Ore-Ida will be traveling coast to coast to bring families together in a fun and healthy way,” said Rick Stuhr, Ore-Ida senior brand manager.
At each tour stop, Ore-Ida will serve up a host of treats, including Shredded Hash Brown Potatoes, Diced Hash Brown Potatoes and Potatoes O’Brien. (No purchase necessary; while supplies last.) Ore-Ida just launched The Family Holiday Giveaway, in which people can enter to win prizes such as movie tickets to see “Frozen,” a year’s supply of Ore-Ida products, Visa gift cards, and a grand-prize trip for four to Atlantis®, Paradise Island, Bahamas.

ABOUT THE MOVIE
Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind “Tangled” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” presents “Frozen,” a stunning big-screen comedy adventure. 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. The film is directed by Chris Buck (“Tarzan,” “Surf’s Up”) and Jennifer Lee (screenwriter, “Wreck-It Ralph”), who also wrote the screenplay. It is produced by Peter Del Vecho (“Winnie the Pooh,” “The Princess and the Frog”). Featuring original songs from Tony® winner Robert Lopez (“The Book of Mormon,” “Avenue Q”) and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (“In Transit,” “Winnie the Pooh”), and an original score by Christophe Beck (“The Muppets,” Oscar®-winning short “Paperman”), “Frozen” hits theaters in 3D on Nov. 27, 2013.
