With Disney owning around half the current operating studios, it’s sometime hard to remember they’re putting out movies themselves. Marvel’s got their thing, Lucasfilm has theirs and of course Pixar has theirs as well. The Mouse House proper has a rather big release on the horizon too, in the form of Frozen II. Today brings along a new trailer to build anticipation and hopefully add more plot after that briefest of teasers came out. Take a gander at this.
Ok, so for the most part there isn’t a ton more to the story that the teaser showcased. We do get the troll, Grand Pabbie (Ciaran Hind, delivering a rather cryptic monologue about impending danger, to Anna (Kristen Bell). It would appear that whatever is happening or going to happen, Elsa (Idina Menzel) may need to use her powers to save everyone, or quell the chaos that is about to ensue. Powers we may actually get an origin concerning, this time around. We get a look at underwater magic, some colorful “fairies” or something setting stuff on fire, as well as a massive giant, lurking about.
Maybe the most surprising shown in the trailer, is a fair deal of restraint. It focuses on the perilous situations characters find themselves in, rather than the cutesy side characters or comic relief. Olaf (Josh Gad) can be seen quickly, but doesn’t say anything at all. It’s an interesting approach, in trailer form, even if Frozen II in the end relies on heaps of old Disney trappings.
What do you think of the trailer? Are you ready to shell out money for Frozen 2? What is the danger the heroes must face? Will the Duke of Weselton make a return? Be sure to share your thoughts in the comments. Get ready for another Thanksgiving where the theaters are cold, as Frozen II opens on November 22, 2019. In the meantime, distract yourself with the film’s first poster, which hints at something ominous in the mist.
