After earning over $1.2 billion around the world and becoming a cultural phenomenon, Disney’s Frozen will soon be reborn as a Broadway musical. Photographer Andrew Eccles was tasked by Vanity Fair to capture portraits of the cast, and the 1-minute video above is a behind-the-scenes look at the photo shoot.
Eccles photographed actors Caissie Levy, Patti Murin and Jelani Alladin, who play Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff, respectively. The location he chose was in Colorado’s Arapaho National Forest looking out into a lake.
Here’s one of the photos that resulted:

An in case you’re wondering, the team aimed to leave no footprint behind in the course of the shoot.
“The airborne snow effects used are primarily potato starch-based and are completely biodegradable,” the production says. “The cotton snow blankets placed on the ground and rocks were removed after the shoot, which followed ‘no impact’ guidelines throughout.”
