The sequel we've been waiting six long years for is finally coming to movie theatres this month and we are overjoyed with excitement. The original Frozen premiered in 2013, and after immediately blowing up with popularity, people of all ages begged for a sequel to continue following the adventures of Anna and Elsa. Of course, since it's a cartoon film, it took years of production before it was ready to premiere but the winter-themed movie will come just in time for the holidays. And the Frozen 2 cast in Toronto will get you excited for the long-awaited sequel.
Earlier today, the cast posted on their Instagram stories that they are in Toronto doing a press tour to promote the new movie. Kristen Bell (Anna), Idina Menzel (Elsa), and Josh Gad (Olaf) are travelling around downtown Toronto doing interviews and TV shows as part of the tour. Unfortunately, Jonathan Groff who voices Kristoff didn't make it to Toronto.
Menzel has been documenting their long day on her Instagram stories, noting that it started early in the morning. "Good morning, Toronto! What time is it here? It's 7:30 and we had daylight savings yesterday," Menzel said to the camera while getting her hair and makeup done. "We're starting some Frozen 2 press. Gonna do some Canadian morning television." She shared snippets of the shows the cast has been on today including Breakfast Television, The Social, and The Morning Show.
And Toronto's Maurie Sherman from Kiss 92.5 posted photos on his Instagram with Bell and Menzel in one, and him and Gad in another. In the caption, he wrote, "So cool chatting with @kristenanniebell @idinamenzel & @joshgad today for @disneyfrozen !!"
Both Menzel and Gad posted an adorable little gift that was in their Toronto hotel rooms featuring an Olaf sculpture made out of chocolate inside of a glass jar.
On her way to Toronto, Bell posted a series of Instagram stories showing her doing the most Canadian thing ever when she found a lost bear in the women's bathroom and went on a journey to turn it into the lost and found at the Atlanta airport she was flying out of. She even posted a handwritten sign in the washroom she found the bear in. On it, she wrote, "If you lost your Bear- it's across from gate B19 at the Delta help desk!"
Last month, Bell posted an adorable selfie with Menzel in front of sculptures of their characters that are currently at the Walt Disney Animation Studios.
Frozen 2 stars the same cast who voiced the original movie and also introduces new characters including Mattias voiced by Sterling K. Brown, Iduna voiced by Evan Rachel Wood, and Ryder and Honeymaren voiced by Jason Ritter and Rachel Matthews.
The plot for the sequel is based around the team on an adventure to find out how Elsa got her powers and where they came from, in an effort to save the kingdom that they live in. Check out the trailer for Frozen 2 below.
Frozen 2 premieres in Cineplex theatres across Canada on November 22.
