'Frozen 2': An adventure beyond Arendelle, the source of Elsa's powers and everything else to expect from the upcoming animated film
The trailer shows Elsa fighting forces that are far more powerful than her. Yet, Elsa continues to remain determined and strong-willed. 'Frozen' 2 will hit the screens on November 22
The sequel to the 2014 animated blockbuster, 'Frozen', is just around the corner. While the first film dealt with Elsa treating her magical ice-powers as a gift rather than a curse, the second one seems more intense with regard to its tone and setting.
The trailer has given tantalizing hints about what is to come up. The film takes place three years after the events of the first film. Elsa (voiced by Idina Menzel) begins to hear a voice from the North, calling her.
Along with Anna (Kristen Bell), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), Olaf (Josh Gad) and Sven, they head off on another adventure, which is beyond their homeland of Arendelle, in order to discover the origin of Elsa's powers.

Currently, Elsa is one of the most interesting Disney heroines as she does not have a romantic interest. Fans are quite keen that her love interest should be a woman. As 'Frozen' had broken several Disney stereotypes, there is much hope that this film will shatter conventions too.
Meanwhile, co-director Chris Buck had told Fandango that Elsa would have a dramatic new personality in the latest film.
"[In Frozen] she had such a dramatic journey, and in the end, she's just starting to feel like she can open up and have some fun again. That's what was really good about the short — we could have fun with Elsa. And that personality... you will see in the next one."
With regard to Anna, in the first film, she had fallen in love with a prince she had just met, keeping to Disney tradition. At the end of the film, her heroic act of true love saved her and broke the spell that was killing her.
She begins a close relationship with Kristoff, and the two seem to be taking it slow in the second film. While Olaf was comic relief in the first film, he barely seems to be seen in the second film. Whether he has a larger role or not remains to be seen.
Directed by Jennifer Lee and Chris Beck, 'Frozen 2' will release on November 22.
