Frozen. It’s one of those movies that has defined an entire generation. The blockbuster box office returns, the immense popularity of the songs and characters, and the sheer amount of merchandise literally everywhere has made this a Disney classic for the ages. Not a day arguably passes when we still see the characters around us, be it products or memes. In the three years since its release, Frozen has redefined our standards for animated films, and it continues to be a movie we love to revisit.
Now, there’s a sequel brewing.
Directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck have confirmed that they are indeed, working on a continuation of Anna and Elsa’s story. And while that sequel is still more than two years away, there’s no stopping us super fans (we’re the guys who gave you Frozember, successfully decoded Anna’s hair secret AND gave you the legendary Tangled vs. Frozen showdown) from putting forward our own ideas for the much anticipated sequel.
So, here are 11 ideas for the FROZEN SEQUEL!
1. Where did Elsa’s powers come from?
In Frozen we learn that Elsa was “born with her powers”, and that neither her sister Anna nor their parents had any visible supernatural abilities. But isn’t it a little odd to not explain such a major detail? So will we finally learn the mysterious source of Elsa’s mighty powers? We want answers.
2. Could Anna have powers?
Speaking of powers, it’s rather odd that Elsa would have icy abilities and Anna wouldn’t have any such powers. Anna hasn’t shown any hint of any secret powers (she’s completely ordinary…in the best way, of course). But could we see her with some kind of abilities in the sequel? Even it it’s only temporarily, it would be really cool to have Anna use powers of some sort.
3. Exploring distant lands…
Most sequels have the same idea: take the main characters and go off to a foreign land (Spain! Japan! Italy! See: Cars 2, Rescuers Down Under, and Finding Dory, among many others). But that wouldn’t be such a bad idea in the case of Frozen. Perhaps the gang could pack up and go exploring neighboring kingdoms in order to solve a particular mystery/ meet a certain character/ uncover a hidden secret.
4. Anna and Kristoff’s Wedding?
Anna and Kristoff get together at the end of Frozen, so are wedding bells next for them? Or hey, speaking of a wedding, and considering this is in fact, a Disney sequel, could we see kids in their future? Could their kid potentially have ice powers? Am I veering too much into Little Mermaid II territory?
5. Could Elsa temporarily lose her powers?
The first Frozen was awesome because Elsa learns to get a grip on her overwhelming powers. But what if she lost them? What if a certain villain steals her power? Or hey, what if Anna accidentally gains her powers? The ideas are staggering.
6. Elsa goes on a mission to save Anna this time.
Frozen is such a classic because of the sisterly bonds of love we witnessed between Anna and Elsa. Anna makes it her mission in the first film to bring her sister back and be a family again, but what if this is reversed this time around? What if Anna disappears (or is captured by sinister forces) and it’s up to Elsa this time around to rescue her little sister? Either way, we’re sure that Frozen 2 will continue to explore the deep bonds of sisterhood and family.
7. A formidable new villain?
Everyone was in for the surprise of their life when Hans turned out to be the actual bad guy in Frozen. While we love Disney’s modern trend of surprise villains, it would be cool to have a larger-than-life, classic and really evil villain this time around.
8. Distant relatives? Another sister?!
The Frozen arc on Once Upon A Time really got a lot of us wondering if Elsa and Anna actually had more family members. Like their snow-queen aunt, perhaps?
Then again, what if there was a third sister? Maybe Anna and Elsa could have a long lost sister who doesn’t remember who she is; maybe she knew all along that Elsa and Anna existed but never revealed herself; or maybe she stays far away because SHE HAS POWERS TOO? After all, we never did learn where the king and queen were sailing off to…
9. Epic new music!
This one’s a given, considering that Robert and Kristen-Anderson-Lopez (we don’t know yet that they’ll be doing the music again, but it’s rather inevitable) will be looking to recreate the blizzard of awesomeness that was ‘Let It Go’. This time around, though, how about a proper duet between the two sisters?
10. Another Olaf?
Let’s not forget about Olaf, everyone’s favorite snowman! With the sheer merchandise based on him, we wouldn’t be surprised if we got another similar character, perhaps even a female snowman (snow-woman?). Now, we know that Olaf is one of a kind because he’s inspired by Anna and Elsa’s childhood, but another character like him would be fun!
On second thought, two Olafs…
11. Elsa’s love interest!?
Now, #GiveElsaAGirlfriend was definitely a great trend, and we’re all for it, it being 2017 and all. We don’t know, however, if Elsa is the type of girl who really needs a love interest, because she’s so fiercely independent. She could rule an entire kingdom just fine by herself. But if Disney were to give her any sort of romantic partner, we’re sure it will be worth it.
We asked our wonderful friends on Twitter what their suggestions were, and here they are:
@IAmGaryWright Songs that are just as good as the original, if not better.

@IAmGaryWright I want Kristoff to have an awesome song, and Elsa should remain single. She’s too independent!

@IAmGaryWright I know it’ll never happen, but I’d really love to see a Tangled/Frozen team-up.
