Whooo, baby! See ya Claus! Hahaha!
~ Stormella with her low tolerance towards to Santa Claus and his elves.
And merry Christmas! Bye!
~ Stormella to Rudolph and his friends after granted Rudolph's wish to make herself nice.

Stormella, also once called the "Evil Ice Queen", is the main antagonist of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Movie. She is named so because of her magical ability to start a snow storm. She also has a penguin minion named Ridley, and wolves.

She was voiced by Whoopi Goldberg (who also played Shenzi) and her singing voice was provided by Carmen Twillie.


Stormella is first seen barging into Santa Claus's workshop with Ridley and her wolves after Boone and Doggle two of Santa's elves accidentally destroyed her ice sculptures at her palace Ice Castle. She demands that they are handed over to her, but because Santa refuses that idea, she decides to forbid anyone to ever cross her ice bridge, saying that if anyone crosses, she will cause a storm. When travelling back to her castle, Stormella tells Ridley that she will wait for someone to cross her bridge so she can start the storm and finally put Santa out of business.

Years later, as a young doe named Zoey crosses the bridge while looking for her friend Rudolph, who had run away from home, she is caught and locked up by Stormella, who later imprisons Rudolph and one of his friends, Leonard, the polar bear and sings "I Hate Santa Claus" before leaving to cast the storm. Rudolph's other friend Slyly the arctic fox sneaks into Stormella's bedroom to steal the key (while she is sleeping) and frees the heroes. Stormella confronts them and decides to harm Zoey but Rudolph in anger causes his nose to light up making Stormella fall down a cliff side, but Rudolph and his friends save her. As thanks, she owes Rudolph a wish. Although she thinks he should wish for a normal nose like the other reindeer, but he only wants her to be nice. He wishes it three times and she changes. However, she cannot stop her storm as it has to run it's natural course.

Later, on Christmas, Stormella gets a new ice sculpture of herself from Rudolph and is later shown among the characters who are singing "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer".


  • It is unknown why Stormella knew Zoey's name when she caught her crossing the bridge despite never interacting each other earlier. Though it is possible that they either encountered each other before offscreen or Stormella was able to read Zoey's mind and learned her name.
