A year later and the world still has Frozen fever!
That's fine by star Kristen Bell,
who still lights up when she talks about the Disney film. Forget the fact that it is the top-grossing animated film
of all time or that the soundtrack has kept Bell on the Billboard charts for 47 weeks and counting, the actress says the whole ride has been "a dream come true."
"That was the thing I wanted to do at 5 years old more than anything-- 'I want to be a Disney princess!'" Bell gushed to ETonline. "The fact that it's happening is still difficult for me to digest. I still feel very lucky and probably always will."
Bell adds that she's most proud that she believes so strongly in the film's message.
"The whole concept that he director was going for is: You can choose fear or you can choose love," she says. "That is something that is important to teach to my kids."
And now that an upcoming animated short based off Frozen has been confirmed for release in Spring 2015, how long is Bell prepared to be the voice of Anna?
"Oh, forever!" she says. "I would do it forever because I love it, but I don't know if parents will put up with it-- and I don't blame them."
earned more than $1 billion worldwide at the box office, making it one of Disney's all-time biggest smash hits. The fourth season of ABC's Once Upon Time
also features a Frozen-inspired story line
. There's even a line of wedding dresses
by designer Alfred Angelo
inspired by the film.
"Wait, am I going to have to get married again?" an excited Bell said, when told about the collection.
