Disney fans have been waiting to see this for a long time, and now suddenly it’s here: it’s the first teaser trailer for the sequel to Disney’s Frozen. Pause the SCIFI.radio stream while you watch. The first few scenes are darkly lit, because it’s Elsa at night during a storm trying to learn how to use her powers, so you might want to watch this full screen if you can.
It’s thrilling and dynamic, and the inseparable sisters Elsa and Anna (Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell), Anna’s boyfriend Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and the supernaturally animated snowman Olaf (Josh Gad) are on some kind of magical quest, presumably to save the Kingdom of Arendelle from some new threat.
Fans have been comparing Elsa’s powers to those of Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians, and frequently ship the two characters since their powers are so similar. It’s also commonly posited that, now that Disney owns Marvel, that Elsa qualifies as some sort of mutant-powered superhero, and the first sequence in this trailer rings that bell very, very loudly.
Elsa in a blue sparkly body suit, doing Frozone moves on the ocean? We just can’t let it go.
This is just a teaser, and there are almost no clues at all as to what all this could be about. We’ll just have to wait until later this spring to see the first full length trailer for Frozen II, but for now, this whets the appetite.
Asad Ayaz, Disney’s president of marketing, posted this on Twitter:
The film is directed by Jennifer Lee & Chris Buck, written by Jennifer Lee and Allison Schroeder, stars Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad, Evan Rachel Wood and Sterling K. Brown, and is scheduled for release sometime this November.
