Kristen Bell thinks Disney princesses have too much estrogen.
The actress voices animated character Anna in Christmas Disney movie Frozen.
She’s very excited about the part, as it means making one of her childhood dreams come true – to be a feisty cartoon royal.
“Actually, [I wanted to be] a combination of Ariel and Aladdin,” she laughed to Total Film.
“I know Aladdin isn’t technically a princess, but I needed someone with a little more mojo, and a little less estrogen. Ariel was more unique – she was the first redhead, she was half fish, she collected forks, she liked reggae!”
Kristen was thrilled she could “mold” her character in Frozen to her own ideas, even basing Anna on herself as a young girl.
The actress is also known for TV series Veronica Mars, which is being turned into a movie for 2014.
She exercised her vocal cords a little for Frozen, but Kristen can’t see the film being turned into a musical.
“I wish,” she sighed.
“We had talked about doing a musical episode and it never happened, but we do have quite a few good cameos. Jamie Lee Curtis and James Franco are the only ones that have been announced, but there are three or four more. If you’re even the slightest bit nerdy, you’ll flip your lid at one cameo, who was easily the most popular on set – and that was the day we had James Franco there!”

Kristen Bell has a “deeper” voice since experiencing pregnancy.
The 33-year-old actress gave birth to her and fiancé Dax Shepard’s daughter Lincoln in March this year.
Kristen voices the part of Anna in upcoming animated film Frozen and claims her sound in the recording studio changed after pregnancy.
“The pregnancy did change my voice. It made it deeper,” she said to PEOPLE. “There were more womanly tones when I did one recording while I was extremely pregnant. After I had the baby, I had to go back and re-record those lines so they matched. There was something different about my voice.”
Kristen says the change in her tone could clearly be heard on the recording. She believes her hormones were to blame.
“There was something more ‘Mommy’ about my voice and we had to fix it. I certainly didn’t intend that, and when you heard it, you couldn’t really place why it was different, but it was,” she continued. “It was one of those hormonal things that happen, I guess.”
The House of Lies star recently proposed to Dax, when the Supreme Court approved gay marriage. The happy couple is revelling in parenthood.
“It is amazing to see [Dax] with her. To have something alive that is part of both of us is a really lovely feeling,” she finished.
In June Kristen told E! News that the duo will simply sign documents when they get hitched instead of walking down the aisle.
“We’re not having a wedding,” she explained. “It’s not a desire of either of ours to have any sort of day of celebration for us. I feel like we get enough attention in our daily lives and we just want something sort of private that involves pen and paper.”
