The Frozen 2 Trailer Was A Massive Hit, Beats Incredibles 2 To Set New Record
A LOT of people watched the first trailer for Frozen 2.
Unsurprisingly, the first trailer for Disney's much-anticipated Frozen 2 was a huge hit. The trailer picked up 116.4 million viewers over its first day, which set a new 24-hour record for an animated movie.
The previous record-holder was The Incredibles 2, also from Disney, which tallied 113.6 million views. All of the numbers come from The Hollywood Reporter.
Frozen 2 has big shoes to fill. The 2013 film made more than $1 billion worldwide and it launched a new merchandising tentpole for Disney. The movie was also a critical darling, winning Oscars for best animated movie and best original song for the inescapable "Let It Go."
The sequel arrives this November, and it brings back the main cast including Idina Menzel as Elsa and Kristen Bell as Anna. Jonathan Groff returns as Kristoff and Josh Gad comes back again to play the snowman Olaf. Westworld star Evan Rachel Wood and Black Panther's Sterling K. Brown are among the newcomers for the sequel.
The plot for Frozen 2 is under wraps for now, but there might be some clues in the first trailer, which you can re-watch in the embed above. Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, who directed the first Frozen, are coming back to direct the sequel.
