As I noted in the teaser trailer for this same film, I’m feeling that 2019 might very well amount to being “The Year Of Disney” because films such as “Aladdin”, “Captain Marvel” and “Avengers: Endgame” have been released and some of these are still killing it at the Box Office. Coming up soon enough are “The Lion King”, “Toy Story 4” and “Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil” are still coming down the pike. Surely these are going to lead us to a lot of family friendly entertainment and here is the full trailer for “Frozen II”, the sequel to the blockbuster “Frozen” film. Let’s take a look.

The Storyline: Elsa, Anna, Kristoff and Olaf are going far in the forest to know the truth about an ancient mystery of their kingdom.
