The trailer opens similarly to the first Frozen 2 trailer, as Elsa (Idina Menzel) attempts to go full Messiah by literally walking on water. However, this time, when she ends up wiping out, she encounters a not-so-friendly looking horse spirit that causes her to swim up to the surface. We then see Kristoff’s troll family approach Elsa and Anna (Kristen Bell), letting the former know that everything she thinks she knows about herself may be a lie.
“The past is not what it seems,” the troll tells Elsa. “You must find the truth.”
The wise old troll then lets the sisters know that they must “[g]o north across the enchanted lands and into the unknown” before explaining to Anna that they may need her sister’s powers to save them from whatever evil force is starting to wreak havoc around Arendell.
“[B]e careful,” he warns Anna. “We have always feared Elsa’s powers were too much for this world, now we must hope they are enough.”
“I won’t let anything happen to her,” Anna responds.
From there, we see a montage of action that includes Anna and Olaf (Josh Gad) riding down a massive waterfall, Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and Sven picking up Anna to escape a mysterious pink fire-like substance, and Elsa hiding from a very angry-looking troll. Finally, the trailer ends with the group seemingly entering the aforementioned great unknown, as they head into a heavy fog with the help of Elsa’s powers.
The idea of a hero needing to learn more about their past in order to defeat a present threat is a tried and true formula for sequels and considering how little we actually know about where Elsa’s powers came from in the first place, it will be satisfying to hopefully get some answers.
