making frozen 2

Disney+ is ready to head Into the Unknown with a new six-part look behind-the-scenes of Frozen 2Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2 follows the cast and crew as they face challenges to assemble the highly-anticipated sequel, resulting in the biggest animated movie of all time. More info on the Making Frozen 2 docuseries below.

The final year before the release of Frozen 2 will be chronicled in the Disney+ series Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2. All six episodes of the series are dropping on the Disney streaming service June 26, and will provide plenty of insight into all the hard work that went into creating the latest box office juggernaut from the House of Mouse. Here are the details:

With the clock ticking and less than a year until the world premiere of Frozen 2, the filmmakers, artists, songwriters and cast open their doors to cameras for a six-part documentary series to reveal the hard work, heart, and collaboration it takes to create one of the most highly-anticipated films in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ near-century of moviemaking. For the first time, cameras were there to capture an eye-opening – and at times jaw-dropping – view of the challenges and the breakthroughs, the artistry, creativity and the complexity of creating the #1 animated feature of all time.

The series follows director/writer/chief creative officer Jennifer Lee, director Chris Buck, producer Peter Del Vecho, songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, actors Kristen Bell (“Anna”), Idina Menzel (“Elsa”), Josh Gad (“Olaf”), Jonathan Groff (“Kristoff”), Sterling K. Brown (“Lieutenant Mattias”), Evan Rachel Wood (“Iduna”) and the talented artists and technicians of Disney Animation as they race against time to finish the film, with both creative breakthroughs and frustrations along the way. Produced by Lincoln Square Productions and Walt Disney Animation Studios.

I actually dug Frozen 2 a little more than the first film – the first Frozen is fine, but it kind of runs out of steam after the big “Let It Go” scene. And while I know plenty about the art of making live-action movies, I’ll confess I’m somewhat in the dark about the work that goes into making a big animated flick. So I might have to check this thing out, and cross my fingers that it actually takes the time to dig into the nuts and bolts of the making-of process.
