The trailer for Frozen II is here and parents, you may want to cover your children's eyes.

On Wednesday, Disney released the first teaser trailer for Frozen 2 the sequel to the 2013 film, Frozen. 

To say the original movie took the world by, ahem, glacial storm, would be an understatement. It made $1.27 billion worldwide, making it the highest grossing animated film ever. In pop culture, it will go down in history as one of the most universally loved children’s movies; loved even by adults.

It’s been a long time to have to wait between films, but the ‘sneak peek’ trailer, as it’s been called, is not entirely what any fan would expect. It’s a little dark in tone – but also, very exciting and dramatic. It shows Queen Elsa facing a fierce ocean…and, well, take a look for yourself to see what happens next.

Watch the trailer for Disney’s new movie, Frozen II:

Yes, Queen Elsa (Idina Menzel) is still there, as are cast favourites, Princess Anna (Kristen Bell), Olaf (Josh Gad), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and of course, Sven the reindeer.

We also glimpse at least one new character, which attracted some curiosity on social media:

It’s almost certain that Frozen 2 will be a huge success, especially considering the original film won two Oscars, including best animated feature. There was also the soundtrack, led by the infectious ‘Let It Go’, which sold more than 3 million copies in the year after the film’s release.
The movie was also made into a Broadway show, which opened in 2018; and yes, it has its own theme park ride at Disney World.
Most people who were parents at the time will remember there was the immensely popular merchandising to support the film; Disney sold more than 3 million Frozen dresses worldwide in 2014 alone.
So parents, you’ve been warned; come November, in terms of your wallets – be prepared to ‘Let it Go’.

Frozen II hits theatres on November 22, 2019.
