Frozen 2 Will Keep Its ”Strong Female Leads” & Plans To ”Tackle Other Issues”
Frozen 2‘s directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee can’t reveal much about Anna and Elsa’s next adventure, but they have shared a few spoiler-free hints about their plans for the sequel. Buck says we can expect to see more of the fun-loving side of Elsa’s personality that we saw blooming in Frozen Fever, the 8-minute short set after the events of the first film:
[In Frozen] she had such a dramatic journey, and at the end she’s just starting to feel like she can open up and have some fun again. That’s what was really good about the short [Frozen Fever] – we could have fun with Elsa. And that personality … you will see in the next one.
Buck says that he and Lee still plan to sneak in some social commentary, though, just as they did in the first Frozen:
We have two very strong female leads in Frozen. We will keep that going in the next one. We will tackle other issues that, I think, are out there today that boys and girls, men and women, are dealing with.
I think we’re very aware of what is happening in society. I don’t think any of us take [them] lightly, even though they can be very funny and entertaining, the messages that our movies have and the influence they can have on young people. When the kids [watch] them, they watch them over and over again, and if we don’t have a decent message in there, I think we’ve missed an opportunity.
Speaking of watching Disney movies over and over again, Buck also has a penchant for the fan theory that the Frozen and Tarzan worlds are connected. Perhaps he’ll sneak in a few references to that in Frozen 2, as well.
