It's been six years since the first movie, but now Frozen II has been unveiled in the US.
Disney held the premiere for the long-awaited sequel in Los Angeles last night, with stars Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel and Josh Gad in attendance.
And though we'll have to wait a short while longer until the review embargo is lifted, first reactions appear to be largely positive.
Phrases like 'darker' and 'more mature' are doing the rounds, though it's said to be every bit as family friendly as the first instalment.
And in new song Into The Unknown, there appears to be a worthy successor to Oscar-winner Let It Go.
Loved #Frozen2. It’s a darker, more complex and more emotionally mature story, continuing everything you love about the first movie and upping the ante while maintaining the intimacy of the original. Gorgeous animation, wonderful new characters and (FINALLY) a Kristoff song! ❄️ pic.twitter.com/ZB7Dyul6Ia

#Frozen2 embarks as not just an evolution of its characters, but it sincerely acknowledges that it's fanbase has grown over the last 6 years, and they have new things to learn in a changing world. Songs are plentiful. Beautiful shots at times. It was something I REALLY needed. pic.twitter.com/NMKEKvyLg0

I really, really liked FROZEN II. A movie that doesn’t even try to have a traditional villain, but instead explores the fears of people, groups you haven’t met yet. And what happens when you learn your own tragic truth.

#Frozen2 is a worthy sequel. Inspiring story. Elsa rides a water horse and it’s breathtaking. The song “Into the Unknown” is primed to be “Let It Go”-like addictive (sorry parents). And there’s even an ‘80s ballad... sung my Weezer in the end credits! Get ready!!! pic.twitter.com/0ZCol85OjR

#Frozen2 is good, of not as good as the first. It looks great and has delightful banter, but the story feels like "dark sequel" Mad Libs (without the courage of its convictions). With two exceptions, the songs aren't very good, playing as redundant "explain my motivation" tunes. pic.twitter.com/4cGa8wpKGH

This time around, Elsa hears a voice calling her from the north, and with sister Anna, reindeer-herd Kristoff, snowman Olaf and reindeer Sven, they embark on a quest to discover the origins of Elsa's magical powers.

Devling into the deeper story hinted at in the first movie, the story also introduces the parents the sister's lost to the sea, Agnarr and Iduna, voiced by Alfred Molina and Evan Rachel Wood.
It lands in the UK on 22 November.
