Frozen 2 DVD release date - cast and what the Disney sequel is about
Everything you need to know about Disney's Frozen 2, including DVD and digital release date, trailer, plot and the cast for the sequel
Frozen 2, the long-awaited sequel to Disney's hit musical, will soon be available to watch at home.
It's been almost six years since our last trip to the kingdom of Arendelle in 2013. In the years since, the film has become an established Broadway musical, with a West End show set to arrive in London before the end of the year.
There's a lot of hype for directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee to live up to, but with the might of the Walt Disney Co behind them, they should be well placed to pull it off.

The new trailer (complete with underwater horses) shows Elsa and Anna preparing to delve into secrets from their past, with plenty of hints pointing to dark forces lurking in the North, just beyond the mist...
The first full trailer, released September 2019, revealed a bit more details about the film's plot: when Arendelle is plagued by apocalyptic weather, it's down to Anna and Else to find answers in a mysterious enchanted forest.
A later teaser for the film also offered a sneak peek at new song Into The Unknown.
And just in case that wasn't enough, Disney dropped a final Olaf-heavy trailer ahead of release.
Who is in the cast of Frozen 2?
All of the major voice actors from the original film are slated to return. That's Idina Menzel as ice-shifting princess Elsa, Kristen Bell as her sister Anna, Jonathan Groff (Mindhunter) as Kristoff the iceman and Josh Gad as snowman Olaf.
It has also been announced that Evan Rachel Wood and Sterling K Brown will be joining the cast.
At Disney's D23 Expo, Evan Rachel Wood revealed that she'll be voicing Anna and Elsa's mother Queen Iduna, calling it "a dream come true." Queen Iduna will appear in flashbacks, singing a lullaby to her girls about a distant, mystical river full of memory.
Sterling K Brown plays a character called Lieutenant Matthias, the leader of a group of Arendelle soldiers trapped in the woods.
What is Frozen 2 about?
Disney has not released any plot info for the film yet, but from the looks of the trailer, it will see Elsa and her sister Anna team up – alongside Elsa's newfound pals Olaf and Kristoff – to combat dark forces.
"The past is not what it seems. You must find the truth," the troll Pabbie tells Elsa. "Go North across the enchanted land and into the unknown, but be careful."
As we see Elsa exploring her powers — including a brand new icy diamond effect — Pabbie also warns Anna that he hopes Elsa's powers will "be enough" when they travel North. What dark forces does he think they'll encounter...?
