The Past Is Not What It Seems in ‘Frozen II’ Trailer

Frozen II
The new trailer for Disney’s Frozen II has arrived. And it promises that mysteries from the past will be revealed when Elsa and Anna return to cinemas this year.


The moody atmosphere of the first teaser and yesterday’s poster still permeate in this latest look at Disney’s next animated feature. Opening in a very similar way to the first teaser, Disney are still keeping Frozen II‘s plot a closely guarded secret, but now we know why Elsa and Anna are venturing beyond Arendelle.


“The past is not what it seems.”



“You must find the truth,” Pabbie tells Elsa, sending her on a quest across the enchanted lands to seek answers, before warning Anna that, whilst they have always feared Elsa’s powers are too much for this world, now they must hope they are enough.


It’s a line that is repeated in the film’s official synopsis (below) and raises some interesting questions. Pabbie’s line about fearing Elsa’s powers were too great comes as she appears to create the mysterious ice crystals we saw a shocked Anna observing from the palace balcony in the first teaser. And synopsis says that the answer to why Elsa has powers is threatening the kingdom. Is this linked to these ice crystals?


The new trailer plays very much like a second teaser, in fact it’s actually shorter than the first teaser trailer from earlier this year, and keeps the air of mystery that Disney have been building around the story of Frozen II. I’m excited to see the sequel build up and dive into this mythology, and look forward to seeing the answers later this year.


“Why was Elsa born with magical powers? The answer is calling her and threatening her kingdom. Together with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, she’ll set out on a dangerous but remarkable journey. In Frozen, Elsa feared her powers were too much for the world. In Frozen II, she must hope they are enough.”


Frozen II is directed by Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, and stars Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff, and Josh Gad, with songs from the original Frozen‘s Oscar winning duo Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Return to Arendelle when Frozen II hits theaters on November 2, 2019.
