Our First Look At Frozen 2 Is Here!
What seemed like forever, Frozen is back on the horizon.
Disney has just released the first footage for Frozen 2, the feature-length follow-up to the 2013 Oscar winner and box-office behemoth.
The new footage features a dramatic sequence in which Elsa (Idina Menzel) uses her powers to run, climb, and slide across a body of water, seemingly in an attempt to freeze and scale a wave. There are also glimpses of her royal sister Anna (Kristen Bell) traversing nature’s perils, snowman Olaf (Josh Gad), and mountain-man Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) leading a herd of reindeer across an autumnal landscape.
Early newcomers to the sequel’s voice cast include This Is Us’s Sterling K. Brown and Westworld’s Evan Rachel Wood. A glimpse of two new characters in the chilly teaser has already sparked curiosity among fans about the two actors’ potential roles, although a larger voice cast is surely expected to be revealed later this year.
Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee have returned to direct the sequel, which will feature new songs from award-winning songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez and a script by Lee and Allison Schroeder (Hidden Figures). Peter Del Vecho also returns as producer.
An official sequel to Frozen was announced in March 2015, about a year and a half after the first film opened and proceeded to turn animation on its head, scooping up over $1.2 billion at the box office (and becoming the highest-grossing animated movie of all time). The title inspired a global frenzy for Frozen merchandise, spin-offs, and a Broadway musical. The film’s narrative has continued in various forms, particularly in the shorts Frozen Fever in 2015 and Olaf’s Frozen Adventure in 2017, but Frozen 2 will be the most significant continuation of the story thus far.
No official synopsis has been released yet but you can check out the trailer below.
