PanARMENIAN.Net - Jennifer Lee, one of the screenwriters behind Disney Animation’s Wreck-It Ralph, is making the jump to director, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Lee has been tapped to join Chris Buck in helming Frozen, the studio’s 53rd animated feature, due to hit screens Nov. 27, 2013.

The movie, which already is in production, features the voices of Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel and is set in a kingdom where eternal winter has set in.
