One of the first original pieces of content to be announced before Disney+ officially launched is finally ready to come out of the unknown with the June 26, 2020 debut of INTO THE UNKOWN: MAKING FROZEN 2 on the popular streaming service.
In this SIX-PART series, all dropping at the same time, Disney opens their doors to film crew to document the making of Disney’s modern day fairy tales. Summaries for the first three episodes can be found below.
Into The Unknown: Making Frozen 2 — Episode 101
With only 11 months until the world premiere, Frozen 2 filmmakers screen their current, rough version of the film to their fellow Disney Animation directors and artists. It’s clear there is much work to do with little time to do it, particularly on “Show Yourself” – while “Some Things Never Change” and “Into the Unknown” kick off cast and orchestra recordings.
Into The Unknown: Making Frozen 2 –Episode 102
Songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez & Robert Lopez propose an 80s rock ballad-inspired song for Kristoff, “Lost in the Woods,” much to the joy of directors Jennifer Lee, Chris Buck and actor Jonathan Groff. With the next internal screening a few weeks away, “Show Yourself” continues to be a challenge, with filmmakers and songwriters all having a tough conversation about its place within the film.
Into The Unknown: Making Frozen 2 –Episode 103
Frozen 2’s March internal screening at Disney Animation proves to be a “live-or-die” moment for two songs: “See The Sky” and “Show Yourself.” Sterling K. Brown and Evan Rachel Wood record for their characters, Mattias and Iduna, as Kristen Bell and director Chris Buck share the deep meaning and emotional resonance behind Anna’s song, “The Next Right Thing.”
