The new trailer for Frozen 2 has arrived and with it, a cute new Disney creature that is almost certainly guaranteed to capture the hearts of children everywhere. It’s an adorable, snow-licking salamander named Bruni, and yeah, you better get ready to buy a toy version of him for your kids this holiday season.
On Monday, Disney released a new trailer for Frozen 2 featuring Elsa embarking on some kind of quest to make sure her magical powers don’t go too far and making many of us think that is is a remix of an X-Men storyline. But as far as children are concerned this is all brand new, including the cute lizard thing, which is actually a salamander who eats snow. People on Twitter already love this thing, which means it’s a good bet kid will freak out for it, too.
Here’s what the official Disney press release says about this critter: “Curious and cute, this salamander [Bruni] inhabits the Enchanted Forest. Though shy at first, Bruni can’t help but be drawn to Elsa’s icy magic and enjoys the cool snowflake treats she creates.”

While this is clearly another case of mandatory Disney cuteness (they even describe the character as “cute” not even allowing you to make up your mind about it!) it’s also possible that this salamander is actually and legitimately cute. Let’s face it, Olaf the snowman probably wasn’t really cutting it in the cute department by himself because he’s so obviously annoying. So, Disney had to up their game with Bruni. Is he basically like the Porgs of Frozen 2? Sure, but that’s okay.
Also, in case you’re wondering, we checked to see if you could buy a Bruni at the Dinsey Store already. Answer: You can’t. YET.
Frozen 2 is out everywhere on November 22, 2019.
