Elsa ice walks through an ocean storm in first trailer for Disney's Frozen 2

After cutting together the trailer for the sure-fire megahit Frozen 2, Disney has finally decided to "let it go," allowing it to roam free on the icy tundra that is the Internet.

Helmed by returning directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, the sequel reunites the original cast of Idina Menzel (Elsa), Kristen Bell (Anna), Josh Gad (Olaf), and Jonathan Groff (Kristoff). Joining them will be Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld) and Sterling K. Brown (The Predator).

We'd be remiss if we didn't mention the fact that the teaser opens with Elsa attempting to cross an ocean in the middle of a storm by freakin' freezing the massive waves! Then we get to see Anna performing her own death-defying stunt, Kristoff riding Sven alongside a bunch of other reindeer, and Elsa saving Olaf from some purple fire.

Those of you that stayed for the post-credits scene of Ralph Breaks the Internet know that Disney played a little prank when it came to showing the first footage of Frozen 2. Snowflakes fall on the screen while the narrator promises a look at the highly anticipated sequel. This turns out to be a lie when Ralph (John C. Reilly) breaks out into his own rendition of Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up."

The first Frozen opened in November of 2013 and was based on "The Snow Queen" fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen. Taking in over $1 billion at the worldwide box office, the film was hailed as Disney's best animated feature since 1994's The Lion King.

A lot of the praise—and rightly so—had to do with the original songs (e.g., "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?", "Let It Go," and "Love Is an Open Door") written by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.

Penned by Allison Schroeder (Christopher Robin), Frozen 2 arrives in theaters Nov. 22, 2019.
