Who is new in Frozen 2?

3 min read

Despite three trailers so far, Frozen 2 still feels quite mysterious and there are even new characters we haven’t met yet. Here’s who to look out for:

Frozen 2 Trailer

1. Lieutenant Destin Mattias voiced by Sterling K. Brown

According to a Disney press release, “Lieutenant Destin Mattias loyally protected his homeland of Arendelle, against their enemy, the Northuldra. But, in doing so, he became trapped in the Enchanted forest, where he’s been for more than 30 years. He’s never forgotten his sworn duty to Arendelle, but the arrival of Queen Elsa and discovery that she has magical powers is just the first of many challenges to his long-held beliefs.”

2. Queen Iduna voiced by Evan Rachel Wood

“Queen Iduna loves her daughters and wants to protect them at all costs — especially from the secrets of her past. But as young Elsa’s powers and questions grow, she begins to wonder if her own past may hold the answers for her family. Unfortunately, it’s not a journey she can make for her daughters, but one they must do themselves when they’re older… and ready to face their destinies. Iduna shares an important, though mysterious, lesson through a song entitled ‘All Is Found.’ The haunting lullaby is about a river that holds all of the answers.”

3. Honeymaren voiced by Rachel Matthews

“A member of the Northuldra, Honeymaren is a true free spirit and wants nothing more than to bring peace to the Enchanted Forest. She is bold and brave, with a reverence for the magic of nature.”

4. Ryder voiced by Jason Ritter

“Eager and fun, Honeymaren’s brother Ryder embraces life with optimism. Ryder’s love of reindeer might just rival Kristoff’s, but unlike Kristoff, Ryder has never roamed the great plains outside of the Enchanted Forest. He longs to embrace the world and venture beyond the magical mist.”

5. Yelana voiced by Martha Plimpton

“The unspoken leader of the nomadic Northuldra, Yelana is fiercely protective of her family and community, but is known to soften when people show an understanding of nature and their environment.”

6. King Agnarr voiced by Alfred Molina

“The son of King Runeard, King Agnarr is married to Queen Iduna, and is Anna and Elsa’s father. King Agnarr loves his family, and would do anything to ensure his daughters’ wellbeing and safety.”

7. Bruni the Salamander

“Curious and cute, this salamander inhabits the Enchanted Forest. Though shy at first, Bruni can’t help but be drawn to Elsa’s icy magic and enjoys the cool snowflake treats she creates.”

There are also elemental spirits connected to the Enchanted Forest, including:

8. Nokk, a mythical water spirit

“The Nokk takes the form of a horse with the power of the ocean in the charge of a stallion. It’s a fierce warrior and guards the secrets of the forest fiercely. In order to get past the Nokk, a person must prove they are worthy and earn its respect — an almost impossible task.”

9. Gale, a mythical wind spirit

Gale is a playful spirit that has the ability to pick up objects and mimic others.

10. Some Earth giants appear.

Made of rock, these large creatures inhabit the Enchanted Forest. You can see one stomp about in the new trailer!

11. And finally, Ms. Mystery Girl!

We still don’t know much about Jane Doe, but we do know that she’s not a love interest of Elsa’s (womp). Perhaps she’s connected to the last element and has some sort of fire power. Or, maybe she’s related to the sisters in some way, or she could just be a resident of the forest. Only time will tell!
