Disney is always thinking about the little ones. While they are waiting for the Frozen sequel and their favorite characters back on the screen, Disney released Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, a short movie that children simply adore! However, now it’s high time to see what’s with the next chapter, and when it will finally be released?
Here are all the information and details that we managed to gather, see how much of it you know so far!
Frozen 2 will come out in 2019
The official announcement has arrived from Disney. The movie’s sequel will come out on November 27, 2019.
Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel will both be a part of the sequel
Both Kristen and Idina have announced on their Twitter profiles that they are returning for the next installment. Having in mind that the first movie is the highest-grossing animated release of all time, it took some time to make a deal regarding their payment, but now it seems that everything has been settled.
What everyone has noticed is that Disney took some time to announce the second part of the story, which, according to Kristen, is because the whole team takes the sequel making process very seriously: “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. Generally when you have a first successful movie you want to make 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.”
Even the producer of the sequel commented on the same matter: “We’re in the development writing process and are very excited by it. Like all movies, it will evolve.
“Now that we’ve been involved in it for awhile, what’s exciting is it feels like it builds on the first movie. You understand things better in the first movie after you’ve seen the sequel.”
This means that even though we finally have the release date, lots of things are yet to be done until the film arrives on the big screen.
Jennifer Lee will return to direct
Jennifer made this news public on her Twitter profile: “At last, I can say – FROZEN 2!!!! I’m beyond excited to create alongside my Frozen family!”
Our favorite snowman, Olaf, is back!
After his “solo performance” in Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, now it’s time for the whole crew to return, including Olaf as well!
Elsa will have a new dress
Although it has been a challenge to make new dresses for Anna and Elsa, because their recognizable outfits have spread across the world, it was decided to introduce their new looks. Their previous dresses made a huge and overwhelming success, and now children across the world own such dresses. For that reason, the team decided to give them the new looks, hoping to achieve similar success.
Frozen 2’s Let It Go will be a big duet between Anna and Elsa
The popular song “Let it go” now represents a big challenge for the producers in the sense that they will have a difficult task of making the song for the sequel.
Tim Robey: “I think they’ll definitely try to position one song as a Let It Go-trumping central number. At a guess, though, it might be a duet between the sisters. They only shared about four scenes in the first film, so I feel more detailed development of that relationship has got to be the way to go.
“Musical sequels are rare beasts, and often don’t pan out too well – see Grease 2, Funny Lady, etc. Disney have generally made the sensible step of reducing costs and sending them straight to video. Though I guess the High School Musicals got more and more popular. And we all know full well that Frozen 2 will be enormous, even if it’s no good at all.”
Robbie Collin: “Frozen 2 categorically has to be a musical, and it categorically has to have a big central ballad – can you imagine what would happen if it wasn’t? There would be looting.
“But the problem with musicals is – unlike films in general – they just don’t spawn successful sequels. And while it’s hard to say exactly why that is, I suspect it’s because so much of your enjoyment of a musical is tied up in the experience of a particular number: not just the song and the singer’s performance of it, but the staging, where it fits in the narrative, and as a result of all of those things put together, the very particular fireworks display of emotions it takes you through.
“That’s why Let It Go has been so phenomenally successful: although Elsa’s technically ‘in the wrong’ while she’s singing it (she’s running away from her sister, though the moral of the story is they’re better off together), it’s the feeling of glorious release that the number delivers – for years she’s kept her true self pent up, but now, finally, here she is, in all her glory – that makes it so triumphant in the moment and so much fun.
“Now, replicating those exact conditions in another story with the same character is impossible, because she’s already undergone that specific emotional journey, and to have her do it again would ring totally false. In non-musical sequels, that doesn’t matter. Take the Avengers franchise: Robert Downey Jr. can crack wise and fly around and shoot repulsor beams in all kinds of different narrative contexts, and fans will be delighted by that. Disney are smarter now than they’ve been for decades, and they will know all this and know they need to solve it while still delivering another Frozen-like experience.
“So I suspect what they might do is either give the big showstopping number to Anna, or (more likely, I think) to have both sisters sing it together. That way they can draw on the broad themes that made the original film so popular, but explore them in a completely new context.
“Possibly the sisters will sing a duet about being stronger together while they’re being kept separate by some villain or evil force, taking verse about, then line about, and then coming together for a big, soaring chorus. Possibly I’ve thought a bit too much about this.”
Elsa will not die (not for ever, at least)
This is the most common question that people tend to pose, and the answer is NO, of course.
Olaf might find a girlfriend
Olaf is one of the cutest characters that Disney has ever had. Being so adorable, he deserves to find his other half, right? It’s completely expected from producers to make something like that happen.
