Disney Roles

Trivia

  • Both Kristen and Idina Menzel (who voices Anna's sister Elsa in the 2013 film Frozen) auditioned for the role of Rapunzel in the 2010 film Tangled. The role eventually went to Mandy Moore, but Bell's audition helped her get the role of Anna.[1][2]
  • When given the role of Anna, Kristen was able to make several changes, including the dialogue Anna said when meeting Hans to reflect what Kristen would say in real life.[3]
  • She unthinkingly spoiled the entire plot of Frozen to her children, only realizing afterwards that it placed her in breach of contract and she could potentially be sued by Disney. She then told her children that if they revealed any information, their teeth would fall out.[4]
  • She ironically dressed up as Elsa during Halloween.
