A “Frozen” sequel is coming to theatres in November and in 2021 fans will be able to experience more of the world in person at Hong Kong Disneyland.
“Soon guests will be able to visit the kingdom of Arendelle with all of its sights, sounds, cuisines, and traditions,” Bob Chapek, chairman of Disney Parks, experiences, and products told fans at Disney’s biannual fan celebration, D23 Expo, Sunday morning at the Anaheim Convention Centre during the company’s park presentation.
The themed land was previously announced, but fans finally received a better look at concept art of the land and its two upcoming rides.
The first ride is called Wandering Oaken’s Sliding Sleighs. Chapek said the coaster will take you on a winding journey through Arendelle.
Here’s concept art of how it will look:
“Your journey begins when you visit Oaken’s infamous store,” said Chapek of the ride. “You’ll then be helped by Olaf and Sven as they pull your sled to the top of the lift and send you on your way.”
The concept art reminds us of the popular “Snow White” mine train coaster in Disney World.
The second attraction is inspired by the very popular “Frozen” attraction that’s currently operating at Walt Disney World’s Epcot, “Frozen Ever After.”
“We’re excited to bring that to Hong Kong as well,” said Chapek.
The Epcot version of the attraction celebrates the anniversary of the day Princess Anna saved her sister Elsa. As guests go on a boat ride, they travel to Elsa’s ice palace, see Olaf skating, and Elsa sing “Let It Go.”
According to Chapek, guests will also be able to see Elsa unleash some of her powers and “create a beautiful “winter-in-summer day.”
Chapek also announced an eighth themed land centered around “Zootopia” will be coming to Shanghai Disney on Sunday morning.
