Storyline info: What will happen in Frozen 2?

Disney's official description for Frozen 2 reads as follows: 

“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.”

DigitalSpy.com reports that the film picks up after a time jump of three years, according to Disney's Head of Animation, Becky Bresee.

Of Frozen 2, Bresee reveals: "It's an evolution and an expansion of the story of Frozen, and many of the questions raised in the first movie become the mysteries that our gang are trying to solve in this film."

Frozen 3: Have any more Frozen sequels been confirmed?

Frozen 2 producer Peter Del Vecho told RadioTimes.com that there are currently no plans for a third Frozen film.

He said: “We didn’t know there would be a Frozen 2 when we made Frozen, and we certainly have not thought beyond Frozen 2.

“What was important to us to create a movie that felt tied to the first movie and complete in and of itself. That’s how we approached the first movie. 

“I can’t think beyond it, we haven’t even finished this movie yet, so to even think of the possibility of starting this process all over again seems daunting to me.”

Frozen 2 is released in UK cinemas on Friday, November 22, 2019.
