“The past is not what it seems,” in the new official trailer for “Frozen II.” Walt Disney Pictures have released another trailer for the animated sequel, a follow-up to 2013’s breakout animated musical hit “Frozen.” Directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee return to helm the sequel, a much awaited fruition for many fans of the story.
Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and Olaf are going far in the forest to learn the truth about an ancient mystery of their kingdom.
Disney’s sequel to the mega hit musical is one that plenty of moviegoers, young and old alike, will surely be catching. Elsa seems to feel tested in her abilities as she and her group discover more about the past and their kingdom’s history. “Frozen”‘s effervescent energy as the breakout success came at a lightning speed. It soon became a phenomena for animated films, sparking a zeitgeist affect of viral capacity. Toddlers couldn’t get enough of their new favorite sisters and that adorable Olaf.
Buck and Lee’s film went on to win two Oscars for Best animated Film and Best Original Song for Menzel’s overplayed but infectious “Let It Go.” Walt Disney Studios could have another Original Song headed to the Oscars next year as well as Animated Feature.
“Frozen II” is directed with a script written by director Jennifer Lee and writer Allison Schroeder. Returning to the cast are Idina Menzel as Elsa, Kristen Bell as Anna, Jonathan Groff as Kristoff and Josh Gad as the loveable snowman Olaf. Also added to the cast this time around are Sterling K. Brown (“This Is Us”) and Evan Rachel Wood (“Westworld”). With an estimated budget of $150,000,000, “Frozen” grossed an astounding $400,738,009 at the domestic box office, while nabbing an enormous cumulative worldwide reach of $1,276,480,335. The forthcoming sequel is bound to break more numbers as fans of all ages flock to the theaters this holiday season. Like the 2013 film, this one is well placed for a welcoming box office run.
“Frozen II” is produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and is being distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. The film releases in theaters November 22.
