Idina Menzel has teased the upcoming, highly-anticipated sequel to Frozen.

The Tony Award winning actress – who plays Queen Elsa in the acclaimed Disney film – told The Hollywood Reporter that the follow-up will be a “real girl power, badass superhero movie”.

She added: “They’re really strong, the two sisters, and it’s exciting. The music is beautiful.”

Menzel also compared Elsa to her previous role Elphaba from Wicked: “Elsa, Elphaba, they’re young women that are afraid of their incredible power and then learn a way to harness that.”

Frozen 2 is due for release 22 November 2019.

It will see the return of Kristen Bell (Anna), Adele Dazeem/Idina Menzel (Elsa), Jonathan Groff (Kristoff) and Josh Gad (Olaf), with the addition of Evan Rachel Wood and Sterling Brown in undisclosed roles.

Frozen received widespread praise from critics when it was released back in 2013, and grossed nearly 1.3 billion worldwide, becoming the highest grossing animated film of all time.

It also won two Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song.
