So, as you might have heard, a little company called Disney is having one hell of a year when it comes to making money. Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame, Aladdin, Toy Story 4, The Lion King, Star Wars… each of those movies will wind up on the year’s box-office Top 10, for sure (and even flops like Dumbo and Dark Phoenix won’t do too much damage in the long run). There’s so much Disney hitting theaters this year that it’s almost difficult to remember that they’re also releasing a sequel to Frozen, which made money hand-over-fist back in 2014, and single-handedly ruined being at a restaurant during a child’s birthday party for the following two years.
We look forward to screaming into our napkins as the entirety of an Applebee’s breaks out into whatever Frozen2‘s equivalent to “Let It Go” will be this time around, but this new trailer won’t give you any indications of what that, in fact, might be.
Take a look:
So, that doesn’t tell us too much. We’re not too worried, however, as the people who want to see Frozen 2 already know that they want to see it, and we’re very glad for them, in fact. You do you, guys.
We are kind of interested, however, in what exactly Disney is doing with its 2019 release schedule: Sure, we get that there are a lot of moving parts here, and that release dates are set long in advance, but what the hell is going to happen to them in 2020? Are you really going to tell us that Artemis Fowl is going to gross a billion dollars (a book that we, prodigious young readers back in the day, couldn’t get through), or that Onward will be a huge success? Or that whatever Marvel’s got cooking behind the scenes will ever be as compelling as what we just witnessed? What happens when they run out of properties to remake? Anyways, those are questions for another day, but it’s pretty fascinating to think about.
Here’s another vague synopsis:
“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 2,’ she must hope they are enough.”
