New ‘Frozen’ Trailer Offers a Peek at New Footage

Disney decided to play it coy with the first trailer for ‘Frozen,’ foregoing a look at the movie’s story in favor of a brief comedic interlude starring a reindeer and a magic snowman. The good news is that we finally have some new footage. The bad news? You’ll need to know Japanese to really understand what’s happening.

Fortunately, we already have a pretty good idea of the plot, seeing as how ‘Frozen’ is a loose remake of the classic Hans Christian Andersen story ‘The Snow Queen.’ Starring the voices of Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, it follows the adventures of a good-hearted young maiden named Anna (Bell) who sets out to find the sister (Menzel) who’s responsible for plunging their kingdom into a state of permanent deep winter.

Where the first clip highlighted the goofy hijinks of Olaf the snowman and Sven the reindeer, the Japanese trailer presents a more traditional look at the movie, focusing on the perilous human portion of the quest and featuring lots of scenes of Anna and her mountain man companion (Jonathan Groff) narrowly avoiding all-but-certain doom. And, while we’d be lying if we said we understood a word of the narration or anything that’s being flashed on the screen, don’t worry — you’ll get the gist.

If you just can’t handle ‘Frozen’ turning Japanese, have a little patience; this clip more than likely signals the imminent arrival of another U.S. trailer for ‘Frozen’ (perhaps in theaters with ‘Turbo‘?), which is due to arrive in theaters on November 27.
