[UPDATE] More sneak peeks at Frozen 2’s soundtrack

Update: We have been even more spoiled by DisneyMusicVevo, as two new clips have been released from the Frozen 2 soundtrack. First is Anna’s “The Next Right Thing”, in which Kristen Bell’s voice shines:

Next, it’s Josh Gad’s turn as Olaf on endearing “When I Am Older”:

Finally, we have a clean listen to Idina Menzel’s “Into the Unknown”:


Original post (30/09/19):

We have been awfully spoiled with new Frozen 2 information of late! Only last week we were treated to a brand new trailer:

This second glimpse into the plot of the highly anticipated sequel involved a clearer exploration into what that mysterious mist is that we first saw Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven disappear into. It also showed highly dramatic scenes of purple flames tearing up the enchanted forest they have emerged into, echoing the dramatic evacuation of Arendelle. Elsa and Anna are driven to explore the enchanted forest, and it looks like this might hold the answers as to where Elsa’s powers came from. More importantly, it gave us this monumentally emotional exchange:

You can’t just follow me into fire!

Elsa

Then don’t run into fire!

Anna

It brilliantly showcases their relationship and I just have all the feels about it. Familial love is always a sucker punch to me emotionally, and I already know that Frozen 2 will challenge my cry-count from the first film. (I cried three times during Frozen. One, during Do You Want to Build a Snowman?; twice, when Anna sang “Please don’t shut me out again. Please don’t slam the door.”; and thrice when Anna turned to ice).

Anyhow, today we have been blessed with even more Frozen 2 information, hyping me up even more for that November 22nd release date.

This latest glimpse showcases a new song “Into the Unknown”.

Every day’s a little harder,

As I feel my power grow.

Don’t you know there’s part of me that longs to go

Into the Unknown?

Elsa/Idina Menzel blessing my ears

Dramatic strings stir in the background as Elsa repeats her refrain to ever dizzying heights. Of course, this is going to be compared to “Let It Go” from the first film vocally, but the context seems to be unique enough to warrant the character-driven moment.

Roll on November 22nd!
