The first full trailer for Frozen 2 finds Elsa encountering a Nokk, learning the past is not what it seems, and told to go north across the enchanted lands and into the unknown. Pabbie (voiced by Ciarán Hinds) admits they’ve always feared Elsa’s powers are too much for this world.
Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff, and Josh Gad are back as the voices of Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, and Olaf. The Oscar-winning team of Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck returned to direct the sequel, and Peter Del Vecho is back as a producer. New songs specifically for the sequel were written by Oscar winners Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.
The original animated film opened on November 27, 2013 and rang up more than $400 million domestically over its theatrical run. Frozen collected an additional $875+ million from foreign markets, leaving theaters with a grand total of $1.2 billion. It also earned two Academy Awards in the Best Animated Feature Film of the Year category and Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Original Song category.

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen 2 will open in theaters on November 22, 2019.
“Why was Elsa born with magical powers? The answer is calling her and threatening her kingdom. Together with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, she’ll set out on a dangerous but remarkable journey. In Frozen, Elsa feared her powers were too much for the world. In Frozen 2, she must hope they are enough.”
