Deleted 'Frozen 2' Scene Answers a Huge Question About Anna and Elsa's Parents | 22 Words

Since it hit screens in 2013, Frozen has become one of Disney's most popular and beloved movies. And with its heartwrenching soundtrack, breathtaking scenery, and loveable characters, it's not difficult to understand why.

So of course, we were hardly surprised when the long-awaited sequel dropped late last year. But there's still one huge unanswered question that has loomed over the franchise - and it seems one of Frozen 2's deleted scenes answers it...

Scroll on to watch the clip for yourself.

 

When it comes to heartwarming movies, there's one company that rules them all.

Disney has given us some absolute classics over the years. If you're feeling down, there's truly nothing better than a good old Disney movie.

And surprisingly, a more recent addition became an instant classic.

Frozen came out in 2013 to massive critical and commercial success - and it's not hard to see why.

It gave us some incredibly cute new characters.

Olaf, the hapless snowman became an instant fan favorite - but badass sisters Anna and Elsa also had their fair share of praise.

Set in the town of Arendelle, the movie centers on sisters Anna and Elsa.

Haunted by the moment her magic nearly killed her younger sister Anna, Elsa lives an isolated life living in complete fear her powers may hurt someone else.

But, having tried to keep her magical (and icy) powers under control since she was a child...

It all comes to a head when, after hearing of her sister's engagement, the emotional strain causes her snow inducing powers to be unleashed in front of the whole town.

Branded a monster by the Duke, Elsa flees to the North Mountain.

Here, she builds a palace of ice in which she intends on living a hermit life. But, unbeknown to her, her magic unintentionally curses Arendelle to an eternal winter.

Anna then embarks on a quest to find her sister and save Arendelle.

And along the way, she meets an array of loveable characters.

Aside from its heartwarming plot, Frozen also had some incredible tunes.

Including this Oscar winner. We've all sang it in the shower at least once...

But perhaps the underlying reason for its success?

It has to be the incredibly positive and important message the movie sends. It's all about sisterly love, independence, and individuality. What's not to like?

But there's another reason Frozen was so popular.

The incredible casting. Idina Menzel absolutely killed it at Elsa, but Kristen Bell's Anna truly captured all of our hearts.

And so, it made sense...

That such a popular and acclaimed movie deserved a sequel. And this year, Frozen fans were finally blessed.

There's no doubt that Frozen 2 has become one of the most anticipated flicks of 2019.

Although it's hardly surprising, given the fact that the original was the highest-grossing animated film of all time (until the Lion King reboot came along last August, that is).

In November last year, the day finally came...

The long-awaited sequel finally hit screens, and fans were eager to take to Twitter to share what they made of it.

Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven leave Arendelle to embark on a quest to find an ancient, autumn-bound forest of an enchanted land.

Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, and Josh Gad are all back to lend their voices in the sequel, which several critics are branding "darker" than the original.

Since its debut, the movie solicited some pretty strong responses.

The movie has exhibited strong commercial success - raking in a staggering $350.2 million at the global box office since its release on Friday.

And it quickly got the critics talking...

The movie garnered a significant number of glowing reviews, with many saying its "more ambitious" and "more mature" than its smash-hit predecessor.

And theatergoers were quick to take to Twitter to air their views too...

Many hailed the sequel as the "best movie of the year," which, let's be honest its a pretty bold statement, but it seems many agree.

The movie truly didn't disappoint.

Fans are awarding the movie rave reviews. Let's be honest, sequels never usually match up to the original, so the fact that Frozen 2 is receiving such overwhelming praise and even being dubbed as better than the first movie, is a pretty big deal.

But there's one huge unanswered question that still remains...

And it has something to do with Elsa and Anna's parents.

Of course, if we rewind back to the first movie...

We know that King Agnarr and Queen Iduna meet an untimely death in a shipwreck at sea.

But during the movie, it's clear that Anna still has questions about her parents.

And it seems that, during a deleted scene from Frozen 2, Anna finally gets some answers. Keep scrolling for the clip.

In the deleted scene, Elsa decides to help Anna better understand how her parents felt about her...

So, she summons a water memory of them (a newly discovered power revealed in the movie).

The exclusive new scene, titled "A Place of Our Own" was released on YouTube.

One of the directors of Frozen 2, Jennifer Lee, explained: "Anna was struggling so much in earlier versions [of the movie] with 'Did my parents really trust me? Why was I shut out?'" "She still had questions she needed answers for." "We loved this idea that after Ahtohallan, Elsa could give her a memory that would tell her how her parents felt about her," she added.

During the scene, Anna watches as her parents prepare for the journey that would bring about their tragic deaths...

"Darling, I've been thinking," Iduna (voiced by Evan Rachel Wood) tells her husband. "It might be time to tell Anna about Elsa. I can't bear keeping her shut out anymore. She's maturing now. She can be responsible." "It's not Anna I'm worried about," Agnarr (Alfred Molina) says. "What if we let them get close again and the feelings are too much for Elsa? Joy brings her powers out as strongly as fear."

As her parents speak, Anna watches them in tears.

"But if anyone can find a way to help her, it's Anna," Iduna says. "You may be right about that," Agnarr responds. "There's not much that girl can't do." "Her love could hold up the world," Iduna replied. "Lucky for the world," Agnarr says. "OK, we'll tell her when we return."

Anna then tearfully hugs Elsa as the water memory begins to fade away.

"Thank you so much for that," she says.

It's a truly heartwarming scene... we wish it had been included in the movie! Disney is quite clearly on a winning streak right now - not only is Frozen 2 going down a treat but its new streaming service, Disney Plus, is also proving pretty popular. One show, in particular, is attracting attention from fans. Star Wars spin-off, The Mandalorian, is truly standing out from the crowd - and there's one particular character that's stealing the show.
