Born of cold and winter air And mountain rain combining This icy force both foul and fair Has a frozen heart worth mining!
So cut through the red tape, negotiate well Get Idina Menzel and Kristin Bell There’s piles of cash in tickets to sell Split the frames apart! Give ‘Frozen II’ a start.
Yes, it’s safe to say that we’re very excited for the long-awaited release of the sequel to Disney-Pixar’s 2013 hit, “Frozen.” The wintry adventure was a smash hit — the highest-grossing animated film ever, not to mention the 13th biggest movie of all time, according to Variety — and it’s not like Disney to sleep on a guaranteed cash cow (or cash reindeer.)
Finally, there’s a teaser trailer and a premiere date, November 22, 2019. The geniuses behind “Let It Go,” husband and wife team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez are back, as is director-writer Jennifer Lee. But don’t be fooled. Our friends in Arendelle still haven’t recorded voice acting or likely finalized much — according to Variety, Lee is still in talks with actors Evan Rachel Wood and Sterling K Brown to play voice parts. The trailer, conspicuously, has no voice acting or solo singing — just a choral moment.
Hurry up, “Frozen II”! In the time we’ve been waiting for you to arrive, that ocean Elsa tries to run across has risen significantly.
