    BURBANK, Calif. (Jan. 21, 2020) — Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Frozen 2” has melted hearts around the world, becoming the No. 1 animated feature of all time. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the follow-up to 2013’s hit Oscar®-winning Best Animated Feature,“Frozen,” comes home, with a sing-along version and all-new extras, on Digital in 4K Ultra HD™, HD and Movies Anywhere on Feb. 11, and on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™ and DVD on Feb. 25.

    “Frozen 2” bonus features include deleted scenes, deleted songs, Easter eggs, outtakes and a sing-along version with lyrics to the film’s forever-infectious songs. Extras invite viewers to go behind-the-scenes to hear personal, making-of stories from the “Frozen 2” cast and crew. Fans who bring the film home early on Digital will receive two exclusive extras: an interview with songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who won an Oscar® for Best Original Song (“Let It Go,” 2014) and wrote seven original songs for “Frozen 2,” and a deleted song titled “Unmeltable Me.”

    In “Frozen 2,” the answer to why Elsa was born with magical powers is calling her and threatening her kingdom. Together with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, she sets out on a dangerous but remarkable journey. In “Frozen,” Elsa feared her powers were too much for the world. In the highly anticipated sequel, she must hope they are enough. From the Academy Award®-winning team—directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, producer Peter Del Vecho and songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez—“Frozen 2” features the voices of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad.

    “Frozen 2” will be packaged several ways to ensure families get the most out of their at-home viewing experience. The film will first be made available on Digital in 4K Ultra HD™, HD and SD offerings on Feb 11 with two extra bonus exclusives. Additionally, a Digital bundle, which includes both “Frozen” and “Frozen 2,” will be made available for purchase in 4K Ultra HD™, HD and SD. Physical copies of the film will be available on Feb. 25 as a 4K Ultra HD™ Combo Pack (4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and Digital Code), a Multi-Screen Edition (Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Code) and a single DVD.

    Additionally, all-new toys inspired by the film’s finale featuring Queen Anna and Elsa the Snow Queen will hit retail shelves on February 22 timed to the in-home release.

    Looks like something else to add to the next Disney Movie Club order. I can never justify the prices Disney wants despite how I feel about the movie or the company.

    Yikes. That artwork is terrible, and I'm definitional going to go with the Best Buy steelbook instead.

    The original Frozen received a paltry selection of extras despite its enormous success. I'm glad to see there appears to be more stuff on this one, and hopefully it's good.

    I'm shocked to see "F2" is the "No. 1 Animated Feature Film of All Time", but based on worldwide grosses, it is!

    If you don't count last year's "Lion King", which is totally animated outside of that one brief shot at the start.

    "F2" never felt like a smash hit to me. The first one was a cultural sensation whereas the sequel was just kinda... there!

    I wish that Frozen II was the #1 animated film of all time. I really do. I think it is absolutely wonderful, and worthy, and adds to the journey of these characters in a significant and meaningful way. There is absolutely no comparison in terms of quality between it and The Lion King remake. But if Disney can just move the goal posts anytime they want to achieve a record, then the record itself becomes totally meaningless.

    Whether Disney wants to classify it as such or not, the remake of The Lion King is in fact an animated film, and unfortunately it made more money than Frozen II did. So actually the record belongs to The Lion King, and sources that report otherwise are factually incorrect.

    I think Frozen II could have eventually become the #1 animated film of all time for real if Disney was willing to put off the home release for a few months and let the film continue playing theatrically. I know I would go a fifth time if it was still here, but it ended its run at my local theater last Thursday now that it is available on digital. Wanting to have the disc in February instead of mid-March (like the original Frozen did) or April (as was the case for older Thanksgiving releases like A Bug's Life) cost them the record. But it doesn't matter to them because Disney feels that it can just disqualify one of its own films and rewrite the record. That is not the case.

    I don't need the 3D edition, but I think that has much better artwork than the standard edition in the U.S. does.
