'Frozen II': the brand new Disney trailer is here

With the whole gang accounted for, what can we expect from the new autumnal 'Frozen'?

Is it me, or is it cold in here? A new trailer for Frozen II dropped today, with the whole gang reunited; Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Sven and Olaf are all accounted for.

The under two-minute preview of the movie, which is set to be one of Disney's biggest hits of the year when it lands in cinemas in November, was released on Good Morning America (GMA).

It follows on from the first teaser trailer released in February, which gave audiences a preview into the new seasonal setting. The wordless preview was little less than two minutes long and opened with Queen Elsa (voiced by Idina Menzel) running across an angry ocean as she paves her own path with ice.

The new trailer opens with Elsa in the sea, much like the February teaser. And we then see Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Sven and Olaf all on a mission, through various landscapes with a throwback to a younger Elsa and Anna. The entire film seems to be packed full of tension.

"Elsa, the past is not what it seems," one of the film's Trolls says in the mysterious trailer, "you must find the truth.

"Go north across the enchanted lands, and into the unknown but be careful," the Troll, who sounds remarkably like David Attenborough goes on to say. "We have always feared Elsa's powers were too much for this world, now we must hope they are enough."

"I won't let anything happen to her," a defiant Anna says in the trailer.

Fewer than 24 hours ahead of the trailer's release, Disney released a brand new poster, featuring both Anna and Elsa:

The November 21 UAE release date means Anna, Elsa, Sven and Olaf toys will be on the Christmas lists of little boys and girls the world over. Smooth, Disney, smooth.

The animated movie giant seems to be readying itself for an autumnal epic with Frozen II.

See the first trailer released in February below:

The February teaser gave lovers of the movie much to discuss. From new characters playing in autumnal leaves to a determined Elsa, distressed Anna and the possibility of Easter eggs.

Frozen II reunites the original cast of Menzel, Kristen Bell (Anna), Jonathan Groff (Kristoff) and Josh Gad (Olaf). There are two new stars in the mix, voicing undisclosed roles, in the shape of Evan Rachel Wood and Sterling K Brown.

Like the original, the film has been directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee.

For those in need of a refresh:

Frozen II is the follow up to 2013's Frozen, which was based on Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen. Frozen tells the story of two sisters, Anna and Elsa, whose home of Arendelle was accidentally plunged into an infinite winter by newly crowned Queen Elsa, who can turn things to ice with her hands. Her determined little sister, Anna, teamed up with Olaf the snowman, Sven the reindeer and Kristoff, the goofy and lovable mountain man, to try and reverse the spell and thaw Arendelle.
