I attended the Frozen 2 early press day, and I'm sharing five of the Frozen 2 secrets they revealed!
I can finally spill! Man, this info has been TOUGH to sit on, and I'm so excited to share. A couple weeks ago I took the train up to Los Angeles for a very special Frozen 2 early press day. We got to hear from the production team, directors and more of the amazing talents who helped to create the follow up to Anna and Elsa's story. While on the studio lot, we learned a LOT about the upcoming release. And these? Some of the Frozen 2 secrets they shared with us!
5 Frozen 2 Secrets Revealed
It's Fall: Endless winter? It's no more in Arendelle. That's right, this movie takes place in a totally different season…..FALL. You can expect stunning visuals, amazing colors……and some really beautiful landscape shots (don't worry, you'll still see plenty of Elsa's icy powers).
Elsa Wears PURPLE: Did you see the recently released trailer? If so, this won't be a shock. ELSA WEARS PURPLE! In one of the early scenes, she is wearing…..purple. That's right a total diversion from her blue palette and I'm here for it. A little behind the scenes info? That outfit she's wearing? It's a nightgown or a nighttime lounge piece. And something she would never wear OUTSIDE the palace or in front of the general public. You know how we all wear comfy sweats at home? Apparently Elsa wears purple (I know, I was mindblown too).
New Cast Members: Our cast of favorites has two new additions. Evan Rachel Wood is joining the Frozen 2 cast as Queen Iduna (Anna and Elsa's mother). Yes, the Queen was in the first film, but did you notice she only had one line? And fun fact, that one line was spoken by Jennifer Lee (the director and current chief creative officer of Walt Disney Animation Studios). She joked at the press day that the Queen had outgrown her, and was ready for a more seasoned actress.
The Queen isn't the only new member of the cast. Sterling K. Brown (yes, This is Us fans…..you can officially freak out now) is joining as Lieutenant Mattias. The Lieutenant joins as a man who has been trapped in Enchanted Forest since a fierce battle broke out over thirty years ago, when Anna and Elsa’s grandfather was king.
The Enchanted Forest: At the start of the film……a young Anna and Elsa are listening to a story being told by their father the king. He describes an enchanted forest that he visited as a child. This forest was ruled by spirits of nature (air, fire, water and earth). These temperamental spirits were wonderful and dangerous. During the king's last visit, something went very wrong. The spirits became angry and the king barely survived. He never learned who saved him. He only remembered that a voice cried out, and that then a mist covered the forest and forced everyone out. King Agnarr warns the girls that the forest may wake again, and that they should be prepared.
The Nokk: If you've seen the trailer, then you saw a mysterious shape that Elsa interacted with in the waters of the Dark Sea. The Nokk is the protector of the Sea, and is shaped like a wild stallion. At the press day, we even got lollipops shaped like the Nokk!
