Frozen 2: Huge blow for Frozen fans in UK as Disney+ release statement

Frozen 2 landed in cinemas last November, six years after the original came out. But, while US fans will be able to get their hands on the stream, those in the UK have a long wait ahead. A message on Disney+ reads: “Due to other existing agreements, this title will be available on July 17, 2020.”

But fear not, Frozen fans, the second film will be available to buy on DVD and Blu-ray from March 30.

Elsewhere, Disney+ subscribers in the US are being treated to the early arrival of Frozen 2 on the streaming service.

Disney bosses decided to bring forward the release to coincide with the DVD and Blu-ray release amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

“Frozen 2 has captivated audiences around the world through its powerful themes of perseverance and the importance of family, messages that are incredibly relevant during this time,” Disney CEO Bob Chapek said in a statement.

In a previous interview with Entertainment Tonight, director Jennifer Lee explained how she and her co-director Chris Buck had done personality tests for all the characters and learned Elsa wasn’t ready for a relationship.

“She’s carrying a lot of pressure and the weight of her kingdom on her shoulders and struggling with this call for her powers,” the filmmaker said. “That’s where she was, so for us, it really hadn’t come up in terms of what fit with where the story was going again.

“And we knew the end we wanted for her,” she continued. “So it [giving Elsa a romantic partner] just didn’t fit with where she was in her life.”

Menzel, meanwhile, has emphasised that romantic love was not the priority for Elsa at this juncture in her life.
