The Snow Queen 2 tells the story of Orm the troll, who is celebrated as a hero after his victory over the Snow Queen. But his acclaim is not enough, and he soon creates an elaborate web of lies through exaggerating his achievements, which leads him into a perilous new adventure. The film is directed by Aleksey Tsitsilin and features the voices of Sean Bean, Sharlto Copley, Bella Thorne and Isabelle Fuhrman. Yuri Moskvin, Vladimir Nikolaev, Diana Yurinova and Timur Bekmambetov produced it.
