Like millions of fans the world over, we have puzzled over what direction Frozen 2 could be heading in.
But one scene that has got everyone puzzled shows Elsa sprinting over the waves, complete with a new power outfit, and that literal force of nature spirit we’ve come to love.
Though we’ve had little from writers to tell us what it means, there is one theory that could carry some weight.
No it’s not about what is next for Elsa’s love life, but where the story could be heading as a whole.
At the start of the first movie Anna and Elsa’s parents, the King and Queen, are only ‘presumed dead’
Flash back to the original Frozen, and we see a young Anna and Elsa orphaned after their parents, the King and Queen of Arendelle, are involved in a shipwreck.
Whilst the film does seem to suggest that funeral was held, by the colouring of the sisters clothing, it could simply be morning dress, as it’s unlikely they would have been ‘recovered at sea’.
Over the years a number of eagle eyed fans have spotted some similarities between the boat in Frozen, and another boat in Tangled.
With fans suggesting that Anna and Elsa’s parents had been on their way to Rapunzel’s wedding when the boat sank and there’s even talk Tarzan is Elsa’s secret brother (ugh internet).
A similar wreck also appears in the Little Mermaid, again with fans suggesting the franchises could be linked, but that’s a little too clutching at Disney-metauniverse straws for us.
So let’s suggest a simpler theory, what if the common line that their parents ‘died’ isn’t true at all. What if her parents survived the wreck and where merely ‘presumed dead’.
Could the sinking have been deliberate and Elsa is going to search for answers?
Well given that the first movie saw the villainous Prince Hans of the Southern Isles try to steal Anna’s Kingdom, it’s clear that the King and Queen will have enemies and rivals to their throne.
This could mean that there was a plot to sink their boat, and that the parents may have been trying to hide something, before they were ‘assassinated’.
Cut to the next shot of the trailer, we see a whole different world open up for Anna and Elsa.
Could it be that their parents have kept secrets from the family, and that Anna and Elsa must quest to discover them?
Is the Autumn-Winter dynamic deliberate, and is it what their parent’s tried to hide?
More interesting still we see a sort of Autumn-Winter imagery forming between the sisters, and it has got us wondering could Anna be about to reveal ‘powers’ of her own.
So let’s say that what is over the waves has something to do with her parents cryptic past, did they try and hide Anna’s true power after her sister Elsa grew out of control?
Or did her parents know they had enemies and leave a trail of clues for the princesses to discover on their own.
What we know for certain is that Elsa going over the waves, in a somewhat secretive fashion, could indicate that Anna is in the dark about it all.
It seems that Elsa knows more than she is letting on to her sister and note that she makes the perilous journey alone.
One thing is for sure, something tells us that the sisters’ past is about to be blown wide open.
