Final 'Frozen 2' trailer drops and fans are officially getting excited
Six years and countless terrible karaoke performances after the first film smashed the box office, fans can officially get excited about the much-anticipated Frozen II. Even though plans for the sequel were unveiled as early as 2015, it wasn’t until this week that the final trailer dropped, giving audiences their biggest glimpse of the new film to date. Needless to say, it didn’t disappoint.
Check out the final Frozen II trailer here:
The trailer, which features the returning talents of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathon Groff and Josh Gad, as well as exciting debuts from This Is Us’ Sterling K. Brown and Westworld’s Evan Rachel Wood, reveals that the sequel is going to take a deep dive into the origin of Elsa’s frosty powers. As the film’s official synopsis reads:
“Why was Elsa born with magical powers? The answer is calling her and threatening her kingdom. Together with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, she’ll set out on a dangerous but remarkable journey. In Frozen, Elsa feared her powers were too much for the world. In Frozen II, she must hope they are enough.”
As per a report by Digital Spy, Frozen II’s co-director Chris Buck revealed at this year’s D23 expo:
“We can tell you that Frozen II is even bigger and more epic, but most importantly in the end, Frozen and Frozen II work together to form one complete story.”
“We mentioned it’s a story that starts in the past, so as you know, in these Disney films, we tend to kill off the parents. I know, we’re very sorry. Guess what, we’re bringing them back.”
Six years is a long time for any fan to wait for a follow up, but it seems like there have been good reasons for the delay. As Kristen Bell told Collider:
“Nobody wanted it to be Episode 2 of Frozen, where Anna lost her shoes. No. It was about, what are the emotional undercurrents where we can show growth and character development in these people? What are we saying?”
“It’s not just about providing a problem and have an end of a second act, and then a third act. It’s a beautiful story, and I think it says something pretty powerful. I’m glad that they took the time that they did because I think it’s really good. And it’s definitely a different Frozen. It’s a more developed Frozen.”
If the trailer is anything to go by, fans won’t be disappointed.
