Everybody’s favorite ice queen is braving a fresh element in the most recent teaser trailer for Disney’s “Frozen 2,” which shows Queen Elsa (Idina Menzel) trying to conquer a massive body of water. The footage didn’t reveal much about the highly anticipated sequel, but it did show Elsa reuniting with some familiar faces, such as Princess Anna (Kristen Bell), Olaf (Josh Gad), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), along with his friendly reindeer called Sven.
As did Robert Lopez and songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck returned to the sequel. Evan Rachel Wood and Sterling K. Brown are in discussions to join the voice cast.
Lee previously hinted to Variety that the upcoming animated adventure will still concentrate on Arendelle royalty Elsa and Anna, but it’s going to be “bigger” and “more epic” in scale. “They’re going to move far out of Arendelle,” she said. The original “Frozen” movie became a huge hit when it opened in 2013, earning over $1.3 billion at the worldwide box office, along with two Oscars. It’s still the 13th biggest movie of all time, as well as the highest-grossing animated film ever.
“Frozen 2” arrives before Thanksgiving, hitting theaters on Nov. 22. Watch the clip over. It has been six years since the first film. As we saw with The LEGO Movie two, a much-loved first does not guarantee a hit sequel. And as we watched with Ralph Break the World Wide Web, a Walt Disney Animation original walt automatically earn over a Walt Disney Animation sequel.
To be fair, Ralph Breaks the Web must permeate to $200 million domestic and $500m worldwide, which will be (sans inflation) a 6% leap) and also a 2.2% gain worldwide from Wreck-It Ralph six years before. I am convinced the Mouse House will be thrilled with a $424m domestic/$1.301 billion worldwide cume to get Frozen II. For the matter, presuming it’s good (and it looks very great ), I’m certain they’d be okay with a little less too.
