The first Frozen 2 trailer just came out, and in addition to some major snowflake clues, it appears we've also just met some new characters. At the very least, we got a good look at the new girl. The other character is more ... up in the air:
I'm not thinking it's Anna and Kristoff's kids, although anything is possible. There may be a reason for the close resemblance, though. At first glimpse, I thought maybe that girl was Princess Anna in new clothes. But no, that's someone else. Also, the boy flying up into the air -- at first I thought it was Kristoff, but no. This person is smaller.
Could it be a flashback to Anna and Elsa's parents? Maybe their mom had a wind/autumn power, the way Elsa has a frozen power? It feels like Frozen 2 has some unfinished business with the parents' story.
We do know at least two new characters are coming, and Kristen Bell (Anna) previously told CinemaBlend we'll be big fans:
Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld) and Sterling K. Brown (This Is Us) were cast to voice two new characters. Not saying those two characters were shown in this first trailer, but the stars will be playing new characters in Frozen 2, so expect to see and hear more about them. It wouldn't be surprising to meet other new characters as well.
That little autumn scene may fit with the theory about Frozen 2's snowflake poster representing the four seasons, with three other people having powers like Elsa's power of ice. She would basically represent winter -- with summer, spring, and fall represented by others.
Could this new character here be the autumn version of Elsa? It's too soon to say, since we're all still in speculation mode until Disney fills us in.
Some fans are already wondering if this new girl could be a love interest for Elsa, although it would be strange for her to date someone who looks so similar to her sister, no? There's been no confirmation on the Elsa girlfriend front, so we'll have to stay tuned to see what Disney decides to do.
Frozen 2 has yet to release an official synopsis, and the first teaser trailer was heavy on the tease. We don't even hear any characters' voices, we just hear the intense music and watch some darker-than-expected visuals. The whole thing ends with Anna drawing Kristoff's sword and slicing at something. It's getting real out there!
Clearly, Frozen 2 will be sending Elsa (Idina Menzel), Anna (Kristen Bell), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), Olaf (Josh Gad), and Sven on a grand adventure, taking them into new lands, and possibly through other seasons. For now, here's everything we know so far about Frozen 2. Stay tuned for more details as the November 22 release date draws closer.

Gina grew up in Massachusetts and California in her own version of The Parent Trap. She went to three different middle schools, four high schools, and three universities -- including half a year in Perth, Western Australia. She currently lives in a small town in Maine, the kind Stephen King regularly sets terrible things in, so this may be the last you hear from her.
