The first teaser trailer for Frozen 2 has arrived, bringing with it the slim possibility that young parents around the world will no longer have to play Let It Go on repeat.
At just two minutes of length, the clip packs quite a bit in. Observe as Anna (Kristen Bell) swings a sword at the viewer, Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) leads a reindeer attack squadron, and Elsa (Idina Menzel) flexes her icy powers against her greatest opponent yet – the goddamn ocean.
There’s also Olaf the snowman (Josh Gadd), who continues to violate all known laws of thermodynamics by not melting. Totally breaks the immersion, that.
The original Frozen had an occult hold on the box office, eventually notching a cool $1.7 billion in worldwide ticket sales. That’s to say nothing of the secondary industry of toy and costume sales, and the innumerable child care professionals who continue to don platinum silver wigs on the daily.
The new one is directed by Frozen alumni Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, and features songs from hit-making duo Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. We’ll find out if that team can best their previous efforts when Frozen 2 premieres on Boxing Day.
