Frozen 2: What We Know So Far
Frozen 2: What We Know So Far
When Frozen came out in 2013, some 6 years ago, for animation movie fanatics, it was the best them that had happened to them in a while. Everything about the movie was a hit, from the plot, to the characters especially the twist by Disney on the princess tropes and even the soundtrack which was a major hit, with the song “Let it Go” being so catchy folks couldn’t get it out of their hit, as is discussed in detail over at mtglion.com. The movie received critical acclaim and grossed way over one billion in the first week of its release in the global box office, making it one of the most successful Disney movies of all time in that regard. To get a clue of how good it was, Disney announced that they were doing Frozen 2, breaking with tradition since we all know that Disney very rarely make sequels of their hit blockbusters. This time though, it had to be done given how good the first movie was; it is what fans had been hoping and calling for. Once this became a reality, information on Frozen 2 started to trickle out slowly but surely, as can be seen over at the excellent guttulus.com, and although in the beginning information was a little thin on the ground, there is enough now for us to begin to get an idea about what the movie will be about and what to expect. This is something this article will look to take a look at as it will look to highlight what we know so far as far as Frozen 2 is concerned.
The first thing we are going to highlight as far as what we know so far about Frozen 2 goes is on the official release date. Here, as has been covered in detail over at the excellent mtglion.com, the official release of the movie has been penciled in for November 22nd. Frozen 2 was actually to be released on November 27th, which was the release date Disney had in mind for the longest, mostly for nostalgic purposes as that was actually the same date the original Frozen was released way back in 2013. However, there are a number of factors that eventually led to them abandoning this date. One of them being that the 27th was actually the Wednesday before Thanksgiving which would have probably overshadowed the release of Frozen 2 and hence moving it back made a lot of sense. The good news about November 2019 is that no major movie releases are penciled in, with the major releases being The Terminator and the Charlie’s Angels reboot, all of which will be released in the first week of November, giving Frozen 2 enough leeway thereafter to take over the movie world up until December, as per the subject matter experts over at guttulus.com.
From what we have seen from the trailer, Frozen 2 appears to be a bit more epic in tone as compared to the original movie as has been discussed over at guttulus.com. It has a much tenser feel to it, something that though not expected has only served to ramp up the excitement levels. Regarding what it will be about, from what we know so far, early indications are that Frozen 2 will look to focus more on the two sisters Elsa and Anna and especially Elsa, with the aim being to go back in time and establish the origins of her powers. This means her parents will make an appearance as we attempt to get to the bottom of where her powers really come from. There is also talk that Elsa could get a love interest, preferably a girlfriend as is covered in detail over at mtglion.com, as she still remains one of the few Disney princesses without a love interest, but that is something that we will all have to wait and see how it goes. As far as the movie’s MPAA rating goes, while it is too early to know for sure, since Disney’s recent releases have mostly been rated PG, including the original Frozen, then we can probably expect Frozen 2 to be the same. It is also unlikely it will be rated anything beyond PG.
Another thing we know so far as far as Frozen 2 is concerned is on the characters and here, as is discussed in detail over at mtglion.com, all of our favorite characters will be returning; the main ones that is. This means we will all get to see Elsa, Anna, Olaf as well as Kristoff and his reindeer Sven; although the later three are mostly relegated to the fringes of the movie as the main focus is mostly on the sister Elsa and Anna. There will also be two new characters, as has been revealed in discussions over at the excellent guttulus.com, and there has been lots of speculation on their identity and their role, especially since the trailer reveals that they will be a girl and a boy. Most folks are hoping that the girl will be Elsa’s love interest although this is something that remains to be seen. What we do know is that we are chuffed to bits and we can’t wait to head over to our favorite cinema to watch Frozen 2 when it finally gets released.
