Disney Animation’s Frozen was a phenom when it released back in 2013, as Pixar has been the dominant force in Disney’s animation side. Until Frozen broke out and gave the animation studio a massive $1.276 billion hit, along with one of the more popular and memorable Disney soundtracks of the last 20 years.
After six years they’re finally back with a sequel and yesterday Disney dropped a new trailer which you can watch below.
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 2,” she must hope they are enough. From the Academy Award®-winning team—directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, producer Peter Del Vecho and songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez—and featuring the voices of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad.
Will they attempt to recapture that magic? It’s been a rough box office season for sequels that taken long breaks between releases, but there is an expectation that Frozen II is unlikely to underperform given that most Disney properties this year have been tracking huge, excluding Dumbo, of course.
Frozen II is set for release on November 22nd.
