Whether you’re an Elsa or an Anna, this Frozen news is bound to give you goosebumps – Disney has confirmed the release date for the hit movie’s sequel.
The bad news is that there is quite a wait, but at least we now know exactly how long we have to hold out.
So what do we already know?
Frozen 2 is set to hit the big screens on 22 November 2019 – a week earlier than its original release date and the original cast – including Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell – will be making a comeback.
Disney, unsurprisingly, is keeping the storyline tightly under wraps, but there are already lots of whispers about what fans can expect.
One rumour is that Elsa and Anna will discover they aren’t biological sisters but, although this could explain a lot, would it really be the basis for a plot line in what is essentially a kids’ movie? We’re not so sure.
Chris Buck, the sequel’s co-director, has however given a firm indication of one thing – Elsa really has Let It Go.
Speaking to Fandango about how the first instalment finished, he said: “[Elsa] had such a dramatic journey, and at the end she’s just starting to feel like she can open up and have some fun again.”
Comparing it to the 2015 short film Frozen Fever, he added: “That’s what was really good about the short – we could have fun with Elsa.
“And that personality… you will see in the next one.”
Chris added that the new flick will also see how the lives of Anna, Kristoff and the very lovable Olaf have moved on. Worryingly, there is no mention of Sven. Let’s hope he hasn’t overdosed on carrots… Maybe it is time to start the hashtag #prayforsven just in case?
The director also previously hinted that he and his colleagues had actually come up with the ending first, before working backwards to piece together the story.
Shortly before the release of Frozen Fever, he told ABC’s One Plus One: “We have lots of things to figure out but at least we know where we are going.”
The Voice Of Elsa
Meanwhile, Kristin Bell – who is the voice of Elsa – has confirmed that the gang are already recording and she thinks fans are in for a real treat.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly in March, the Hollywood actress confirmed: “The story is great, and they exude quality.
“What I know about that whole team is that they wouldn’t just put something out to put it out. That’s why it took them so long to even announce that we were doing a second one.
“It took them a while because they wanted to figure out what story they needed to tell and what would be important and engaging and I think they found it.”
Sounds like it’ll be worth the wait – even if we will have a new wrinkle or two by the time it hits the big screen.
