The stars of ‘Frozen 2’ also stopped by to tease their sequel.
Disney is heading to space.
After an emotional ceremony honoring this year’s Disney Legends, D23 continued in earnest Friday for the company’s animation panel — and announced the next chapter in its Cars universe.
John Lasseter came on stage, using a merch gun to whip the crowd into a frenzy, and he showed off footage he dubbed “the speed test.”
The footage was something akin to Top Gun on steroids, with planes that go all the way into space. After a plane that goes through the stratosphere, a title card comes up reading, “SPACE. Other words came up around it, revealing that “Space” is not the title — the card symbolizes that the “this space will be filled with title in the future.”
The film will debut April 12, 2019.
Next during Friday’s animation panel, Frozen stars Kristen Bell and Josh Gadd teased the new short Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, with Gadd (Olaf) singing a song live from the project.
The pair also revealed Frozen 2 will get a new title, but they aren’t yet ready to reveal what it will be. Then Disney showed off a sizzle reel demonstrating the research the team was doing to get ready for the release, including a trip to Norway.
Idina Menzel is also returning for the project, and once again co-directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee are at the helm.
Frozen 2 is scheduled for Nov. 27, 2019.
More to come…
