Frozen inspires an ice skating holiday special

While “This Is Us” has become a summer staple in American homes, let’s face it, only half of the country falls in the half that watches TV during the big season.

But now there’s another way to find the program you’re looking for: TV viewing apps are increasingly bringing programs to smart phones and tablets, bringing audiences on-demand viewing, and even helping fight against DVRs.

To that end, networks have been coming up with new ways to repurpose their shows for big-screen consumption, including the new holiday season lineup, which has a number of notable specials planned.

Among them are two toons about the holidays — both December 24 — that capture the spirit of festive feasting and enjoyment. Charlie Brown, you’ve got lots of company.

“Frozen,” from Disney’s animated powerhouse, “Frozen,” is a lighthearted story about two sisters, Elsa and Anna, in conflict over what should and shouldn’t be done with the icy realm of Arendelle.

Elsa (Idina Menzel) has gone a little bonkers after her powers are exposed — she has a melt button in her glove, and pretty much everywhere she looks, an icicle seems to be hanging in the air, making giant icicles — and family disappointment is compounded when her father forces her to go live with her aunt Anna (Kristen Bell) in Manhattan.

Anna believes that a better life would be better, and happily shares Elsa’s affection for breakfast treats, as well as her love of music, animals and ice skating. Elsa just wants to be with her family again. Will they make it to reunite in Arendelle before the winter freezes over?

Tickets for this holiday event go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. ET; you can start pre-ordering them right here.
