It’s here! Disney has finally graced us with the official full-length “Frozen 2” trailer, and we have SO many feelings.
The action-packed sequel is arguably one of the most anticipated films of the year, and we are here for it.
At just under two minutes long, the new trailer is a real thrill ride. It’s captivating and moving, and still tells us very little about what’s to come for Anna and Elsa.
It’s no surprise as Disney has set a new trend for keeping details about its upcoming releases tightly under wraps — particularly the highly-anticipated ones. We see your game, Disney.
The movie’s official description reads simply, “Why was Elsa born with magical powers? The answer is calling her and threatening her kingdom.”
Here’s what we know about “Frozen 2”
From the teaser trailer, we gathered that the tone would be much darker this go-around, and the new full-length trailer only confirmed that further.
It all starts with Elsa taking on a surge of roaring waves with her icy powers. Her attempt to overcome them sends her deep [underwater], where she’s startled by a ghostly horse before making it to the top to catch her breath.
Narrating the trailer is Pabbie, the oldest and wisest of the trolls, who hints that the movie may take us through more of Elsa’s backstory.
“Elsa, the past is not what it seems,” he says. “You must find the truth. Go north across the enchanted land and into the unknown…”
Cue ALL the adventure.
As the music builds and we get notes of the sounds of Arendelle we first fell in love with back in 2013, there are scenes of more ghostly horses and beasty figures. We catch glimpses of Olaf and Sven, and fire-like ice scenes that are sure to keep us on the edge of our seat.
“But be careful,” Pabbie continues. “We have always feared Elsa’s powers are too much for this world. Now we must hope they are enough.”
Kristoff sweeps Anna off of her feet and there’s a lurking sense of intense determination before showing Elsa powerfully standing on an ice cliff, because, naturally.
The completely breathtaking trailer brings us to a tender moment near the end where the sisters hold hands and walk through a foggy landscape into the unknown, just like Pabbie explained.
Similar to the last film, it seems as though Anna and Elsa will spend much of their time apart as they defend the kingdom of Arendelle. The difference this time is that rather than fighting each other, they’ll be fighting together.
“I won’t let anything happen to her,” Anna assures Pabbie with the same fiery passion and hard-headedness we first fell in love with in “Frozen.”
The sisterhood is strong, friends.
Disney’s “Frozen 2” isn’t set to hit theaters until November 22, but there’s plenty of Disney to go around until then. “Toy Story 4” hits the big screen next week, and the live-action remake of “The Lion King” will be released July 19.
