Ah, the Frozen mania. If you were hoping kids' obsession with Elsa and Anna and talking snowmen, and especially that sing-along video to "Let It Go," would one day be buried deep in the archives of everyone's memories, your patience is up for a challenge even bigger than trying to be a snowman in summer.
If, on the other hand, you couldn't get enough of sisterhood love and a princess popping icicles out of her fingertips, you've probably been dying for more information about Frozen 2 ever since Disney confirmed the sequel. But while we've known since March that the movie was heading into production, Disney have made sure to reveal the strictest minimum of details about the plot. That doesn't mean we can't draw from the first movie to ponder what we'd like to see in the sequel, so here are 5 things that could or should (or shouldn't) happen in Frozen 2.
1. Anna And Kristoff In A Happy Relationship
These two got their happy conclusion at the end of Frozen, but we'd love to see more of their adventures together, as they make such a perfect couple. Will there be a wedding? Will Anna also get a custom-made sleigh to race with Kristoff? Online fan fiction has carried it much further than that, but it'd be nice to get a least a little bit of development of their relationship.
2. Could Anna Have Powers?
Granted, the dynamic of the first movie lies partly in the fact that one sister has particularly strange and hard to control magical powers while the other is just a mere human who'd like to have fun. But what if? If you look at it closely in Frozen, Anna always seems like she's got quite incredible strength. The discovery that something magical runs in the family would be a great way to kickstart a new plot.
It all started with one tweet, but soon enough, the whole internet was engaged in a debate about whether Elsa should get a girlfriend in Frozen 2. Some argued that the whole point of Frozen was that you didn't need a love interest to feel fulfilled, and that Elsa could use more personality development before starting a relationship with someone else.
Director Chris Buck and writer Jennifer Lee might have hinted at a same-sex relationship in the Frozen sequel. Question is, will it be Elsa?
"We will tackle other issues that, I think, are out there today that boys and girls, men and women, are dealing with. I think we’re very aware of what is happening in society. When the kids watch [Disney movies], they watch them over and over again, and if we don’t have a decent message in there, I think we’ve missed an opportunity."
I'm placing my bets on Olaf, who would no doubt be very happy to share his adventures with a fellow snowman.
4. Olaf Gets A Partner
Could Olaf get a partner? In the Frozen Fever short movie that was screened exclusively before the live-action Cinderella, we saw Elsa catch a cold and sneeze mini snowmen. How awesome would it be to see Olaf raise them with another talking snowman or snowlady?
5. A New Song
If there's one thing that's obvious about Frozen 2, it's that it's going to have to come up with an alternative to the hit song "Let It Go." My guess would be that the new theme song would be Anna's, who's already proved her singing skills with the "Do You Wanna Build A Snowman" and "Love Is An Open Door" tunes.
