Directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee
Starring Kristen Bell (Teen Titans GO! to the Movies), Idina Menzel (Olaf’s Frozen Adventure), Josh Gad (Murder on the Orient Express), Jonathan Groff (Hamilton on Broadway), Sterling K Brown (The Predator) and Evan Rachel Wood (What We Do in the Shadows TV series)
King Agnarr (Alfred Molina) tells his daughters about an Enchanted Forest, sealed off from Arendelle since a conflict in his youth, and Queen Iduna (Wood) sings a lullaby about Ahtohallan, a river of memories. We flash forward to some time – either fifteen or twenty-seven months, by my estimation; probably the latter – after the events of the first film, with Queen Elsa (Menzel), Anna (Bell), Anna’s boyfriend Kristoff (Groff) and Olaf the magical snowman (Gad) are celebrating the harvest festival in the utopian socialist monarchy that is modern Arendelle when Elsa is overcome by the call of a distant voice and somehow awakens the long-dormant spirits of the forest, forcing an evacuation of the Kingdom in the face of elemental turmoil.
