For months we developed our best theories about what Frozen 2 might be about. However, last week Disney released an all new trailer, which totally upended everything we thought we knew. Now the only thing we’re sure of is that we’re not sure of much. We are still confident in one thing though—the movie will feature some great new songs. Luckily, Disney has not only given us a chance to hear one of the film’s original tracks, “Into the Unknown,” in a new featurette, the studio has also announced the entire track list for the soundtrack.
This sneak peek at the film includes some new footage for what looks like a truly epic story, but it’s Idina Menzel’s performance of “Into the Unknown” that stands out. It might not be as obviously catchy as “Let it Go,” but it still feels as big and grand as we’d expect.
It’s one of seven original songs from Kristen Anderson-Lopez & Robert Lopez that Disney formally announced for the official soundtrack. In addition to the film’s returning cast – Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Josh Gad, and Jonathan Groff—it also includes newcomer Evan Rachel Wood. The album also features end credit covers by Panic! At the Disco, Kacey Musgraves, and Weezer.
1: “All is Found” – Evan Rachel Wood
2: “Some Things Never Change” – Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Josh Gad and Jonathan Groff
3: “Into the Unknown” – Idina Menzel (featuring Norwegian singer AURORA)
4: “When I Am Older” – Josh Gad
5: “Reindeer(s) are Better than People (Cont.)” – Jonathan Groff
6: “Lost in the Woods” – Jonathan Groff
7: “Show Yourself” – Idina Menzel and Evan Rachel Wood
8: “The Next Right Thing” – Kristen Bell
9: “Into the Unknown” – Panic! At The Disco (end credits)
10: “All is Found” – Kacey Musgraves (end credits)
11: “Lost in the Woods” – Weezer (end credits)
Definitely here for the Idina Menzel/Evan Rachel Wood duet.
The official Frozen 2 soundtrack will be available on November 15, one week before the film comes to theaters on the 22, but you can digital pre-order/pre-save now through Disney Music. The vinyl soundtrack, score album, and digital deluxe soundtrack will also be available on Nov. 15.
As for the songs themselves, combined with the film’s official synopsis they hint at what will happen to the main characters over the course of the movie.
“Why was Elsa born with magical powers? What truths about the past await Elsa as she ventures into the unknown to the enchanted forests and dark seas beyond Arendelle? The answers are calling her but also threatening her kingdom. Together with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, she’ll face a dangerous but remarkable journey. In Frozen, Elsa feared her powers were too much for the world. In Frozen 2, she must hope they are enough.”
Do we know what any of that means yet? No, but it sounds good.
