On January 1, 2017 Wizart has organized a special screening of the animated movie The Snow Queen 3. Fire and Ice on the oldest Russian Antarctic station named Mirny. The Russian Antarctic Expedition (RAE) members got the opportunity to be one of the first people to see the animated movie and share their impressions from it.
“We’re grateful to the animation studio Wizart for the opportunity to see The Snow Queen 3 animated movie at the same time with the whole country. Unfortunately, as you may have noticed, we don’t have any movie theatres around here, but all the expedition members love the national animation and are eager to see how the story of the well-known characters Kai and Gerda continues,” German Moskvitin, a member of the expedition, commented.
On January 12, the Akademik Fyodorov ship will arrive in Antarctica – it’ll bring another surprise from Wizart to the expedition members. During 2016, children from all over the country were sending cards with their New Year wishes for the expedition members. The special cargo was passed at the end of October in order to arrive in Antarctica and bring those kind warm words to the residents of the oldest Russian Antarctic station Mirny by the Old New Year (one of the Russian winter celebrations that takes place on January 14).
On March 1, 2015, there was a premiere of The Snow Queen 2: The Snow King in Antarctica. Members of the Wizart animation studio team and musicians of the Russian rock band Bi-2, who dubbed some characters in the movie, sent a parcel with a DVD in mid-February. The package also contained a collection of Bi-2 albums and the band’s flag.
On December 29, 2016, the third movie of The Snow Queen franchise, really loved by the audience, was released in Russia. Although it was first based on the plot of the famous fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen, now the animated movie The Snow Queen 3. Fire and Ice is a separate original story about the adventures of Kai, Gerda and their friends – restless pirate girl Alfida, funny troll Orm and ferret Luta, his fluffy companion.
