Elsa and Anna Adventure Beyond Arendelle in 'Frozen 2' Trailer
The trailer for Frozen 2 reveals a magical journey ahead.
In the first official look at the animated world's return, which premiered during Good Morning America on Tuesday, Queen Elsa (Idina Menzel) sets out to discover why she was born with magical powers. The potential of an answer is calling her — and threatening her kingdom.

Kristen Bell (Princess Anna) and Menzel reprise their roles in the highly anticipated sequel. The gang from the original 2013 film will embark on a new journey that goes beyond their homeland of Arendelle and, as the trailer shows, Anna will be joining Elsa on the adventure.
Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad and Santino Fontana all return to reprise their roles from the first film, while new castmembers include Evan Rachel Wood and Sterling K. Brown. Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee also return as co-directors.
The trailer opens with Elsa running into the ocean, which she is able to walk on top of due to her magical powers of turning objects into ice.
"Elsa, the past is not what it seems," a troll later warns her. "You must find the truth. Go North, across the enchanted lands and into the unknown. But be careful. We have always feared Elsa's powers were too much for this world. Now, we must hope they are enough."
Clips show Elsa, Anna, Kristoff (Groff) and Olaf (Gad) embarking on an exciting adventure as Elsa tries to save the world. Following a montage of clips, the sisters eventually lead their friends into a pink fog.
The trailer concludes with Anna promising that she won't let anything bad happen to Elsa, though the following clip shows Elsa hiding behind large rocks as a large monster lurks nearby.
The full-length trailer follows a February teaser that became the most-watched animated trailer of all time in its first 24 hours. In that preview, Queen Elsa and her friends prepare for a battle against an unknown and ominous force. Though it's unclear whether the force or villain poses a threat to the kingdom of Arendelle, the trailer implies that the battle will play a major role in the film.
Frozen 2 will be in theaters Nov. 22. Watch the full trailer above.
