This winter we’ll get another heroine-focused Disney flick with Frozen, which is loosely based on the fairy tale The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen. While the first looks at the animated film looked like this one was going to turn out rather dark, the first teaser trailer gives us something very fun and silly.

Frozen is a story of two sisters torn apart by a big family secret. Idina Menzel voices Queen Elsa, the elder sister who cursed her kingdom to suffer an endless winter; and Kristen Bell is Anna, the younger princess who tries to find Elsa to end the curse.

Though the plot sounds a bit wicked and tragic, the first teaser trailer is anything but. The clip doesn’t give us anything from the plot story, instead is shows a rather light confrontation between a very large reindeer (who looks more like a moose to be honest) and a creative snowman, who battle it out for a carrot. The end isn’t gruesome or anything of that sort (don’t expect a melted snowman). Overall, the teaser comes off as sweet and clever, something we weren’t really expecting from this animated feature. Here’s the teaser:

Frozen is directed by Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, with original songs and music by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez. The movie hits theaters on November 27, 2013.

What do you think of the trailer? Is this what you were expecting?
