Frozen 2 sets another new record? : Watch Trailer

Disney has set yet another new record with the surprise release of Frozen 2's first trailer on Wednesday (February 13).

The teaser racked up an impressive 116.4 million views in its first 24 hours, breaking Incredibles 2's record of the most-watched trailer of all-time for an animated film by 2.8 million views.

That marks the third trailer record for Disney in a matter of months. First, The Lion King became Disney's most-watched trailer debut ever with 224.6m in November 2018, before Avengers: Endgame broke the all-time record in December 2018 with 289m views.

It bodes well for the release of Frozen 2 later this year as online trailer records often lead to box office records. Incredibles 2 notched the best-ever US debut for an animation with $182.6m, and a record opening for Frozen 2 in November won't be a surprise.

Even though the trailer gave away very little about what the sequel will be about, it didn't stop fans speculating over a new character we saw – and how she might be Elsa's girlfriend.

Talking about the sequel last year, returning co-writer and co-director Jennifer Lee didn't rule out the possibility that we might see the first-ever LGBTQ+ Disney Princess.

"Elsa's every day telling me where she needs to go, and she'll continue to tell us. I always write from character-out, and where Elsa is and what Elsa's doing in her life, she's telling me every day. We'll see where we go," she explained.

Guess we'll just have to wait and see when Frozen 2 arrives in cinemas on November 22. (Digital Spy)
