Frozen 2 debuted its first footage and artwork at the Annecy Animation Festival.
The sequel to the hit animated movie apparently takes place three years after the first film ends. Head of animation Becky Bresee and head of effects Marlon West spoke at the Festival. Bresee explained:
“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.”
She also said that the main question of the film is: “Why was Elsa born with her powers?”
“[It’s] about two sisters trying to stay together while the world tries to tear them apart.”
Key scenes that were shown were Elsa hearing a strange sound from the forest and key art for the movie showed her father telling her children’s bedtime stories. According to Bresee, there was a lot of inspiration drawn from the ancient Swedish herding called Kulning. The story Elsa’s father tells her is one of the spirits of the forest having faced off against the people of the kingdom. Elsa, Anna, Kristof, and Olaf must head into the words in order to find out about the past, which puts them in danger.
Another scene shown was Elsa swimming into the ocean and turning a wave into ice as she descends into the depths of a stormy sea. A happier vignette is then shown, depicting the characters playing charades while Elsa is distracted by the cries from the forest.
