As Frozen II has become the third Walt Disney Animation Studios film to cross the $1 billion threshold at the global box office, the Mouse House has put out a new video featurette celebrating Elsa, Anna and the sequel’s impact on audiences and the people who made it.
So far, Frozen II has set a global debut record for an animated movie, with a $358.4M opening weekend and held the top spot at the box office domestically and around the world for its first three weekends. Domestically, Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck’s highly anticipated sequel set a record for an animated opening outside of summer with $130.2M and for the Thanksgiving period with $125M in its second weekend. The film “Into the Unknown,” an original song written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, and performed in the movie by Idina Menzel, were recently nominated for Golden Globes in the animated feature and original song categories.
Synopsis: Why was Elsa born with magical powers? What truths about the past await Elsa as she ventures into the unknown to the enchanted forests and dark seas beyond Arendelle? The answers are calling her but also threatening her kingdom. Together with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, she’ll face 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. From the Academy Award-winning team — directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, producer Peter Del Vecho and songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez — and featuring the voices of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen 2 is now playing in U.S. theaters.
