First Full Frozen II Trailer Reveals Dangerous Journey for Elsa & Anna
Yesterday, Disney shared with us a slightly more fullsome synopsis for the long-awaited Frozen 2. Today, the Mouse House has done us one better and released the film’s official trailer, giving us a longer glimpse at Elsa and Anna’s upcoming adventures outside of Arendelle. This new trailer expands on the gorgeous but plot light teaser Disney released last February.
The trailer once again opens with Elsa attempting to scale giant waves by freezing them. It’s a beautiful and haunting sequence, darker and more ominous than anything from the blockbuster original film. Hard as she tries, Elsa can’t quite get over the top of the waves without being toppled and sent into the frigid water. Here’s where the new trailer delivers its first fresh surprise—Elsa comes face-to-snout with some kind of ocean horse. Yes, you read that correctly. The beast is both beautiful and mysterious. It’s gone nearly as soon as it arrives. Elsa, along with her sister Anna and their pals Olaf and Sven, must set out on a dangerous journey north, through enchanted lands and into the unknown. Will the sisters learn more about their parents on this journey? Will Elsa, who use to fear her powers were too potent for her world, have enough of them to stave off danger?
Frozen 2 reunites many of the major talents that delivered on the original. Co-directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck return, working off a script written by Lee and Allison Schroeder (Hidden Figures). Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, and Josh Gad all return to lend their voices. Newcomers include Evan Rachel Wood and Sterling K. Brown. Songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez are also back. These two were a major reason the original Frozen was such a phenomenon.
