The songs were wonderful - to the point that it produced one of the best-known Disney songs ever, in "Let It Go".
Six years after their mega-successful "Frozen" hit theaters, Disney dropped the first trailer for the sequel. At the end we see the main characters, Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven gazing out over a valley filled with trees in vibrant fall colors.
Both groupings have been represented by various glyphs and alchemical symbols over the centuries, and Frozen 2's Norwegian variants of the four clean, simple symbols look to be inspired by them. Lee called the animation in the sequel "bigger [and] more epic" than the original, explaining, "They're going to go far out of Arendelle".
The film reunites directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck with Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who wrote the songs for both movies. Idina Menzel returns as Elsa, Kristen Bell as Anna and Jonathan Groff will reprise his roll as Kristoff. Elsa is running into the ocean, Anna is jumping across chasms and slashing unseen enemies with a sword. New to the sequel is This Is Us star Sterling K. Brown and Westworld actor Evan Rachel Wood, although their characters have yet to be revealed. The original 2013 film was a global phenomenon, earning more than $1.2 billion at the worldwide box office.
Frozen 2's release date is set for November 22, 2019.
