Exclusive: Jaw-Dropping New Frozen Prints from Brittney Lee

A few months ago our friends at Cyclops Print Works showed some of the Oh My Disney team the rough sketch for two upcoming, officially licensed Frozen prints that they were working on. And our hearts collectively melted. The prints are by Brittney Lee, a visual development artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios who worked on Frozen, designing Anna and Elsa’s costumes and hairstyles, and they are absolutely incredible. And the best part–the prints are being released on August 23, which just so happens to be Lee’s birthday!

I got the opportunity to talk with Lee about the prints, which she said were inspired by the fashion designer Rene Gruau and the “old vintage posters” she has hanging up in her house. “I wanted to do something different,” Lee explained. “I’ve never done any fashion illustration of that sort, so I thought that would be fun.” When I asked her why Elsa was in her traditional ensemble but Anna is in her coronation, attire, Lee said that it was “mostly for twirl factor.”  She then added: “I worked on all of their costumes but I got down to the nitty gritty of her coronation dress. So I thought it would be fun for her to get to play in that since you don’t get to see it that much in the movie.” Plus, she said, if she decides to do another set of prints, this time around the adorable short film follow-up “Frozen Fever,” that they would “wind up being harmonious, color-wise.”

Lee already had a hand in creating the character for Frozen, so I asked if it was fun to revisit them in this different form. “It’s always fun to revisit them,” Lee said. “It’s so dorky to say but they’re like family. I feel like I know them really well. So to have the opportunity to play with them, for me it’s challenging but it’s also so fun. So it’s a really rewarding experience when it works out.”

These prints will go on sale on August 23 (Brittney’s birthday) at noon PST on the Cyclops website.
