  • There's so much to look at and think about in Disney's long-awaited sequel that it's

  • easy to overlook the many jokes, references, and shoutouts hidden throughout.

  • Fortunately, we're here to help you make sense of it all with this look at some of the best

  • and most memorable Easter eggs in Frozen II.

  • It's almost as obvious that Frozen II is a Disney movie as it is obvious that it's a

  • movie about a queen with magical powers who turns stuff into ice and belts out "Let it

  • Go" to make herself feel better.

  • Yes, the House of Mouse signed the paychecks for all the animators and voice actors who

  • worked very hard to make Frozen II a dazzling cinematic experience, and the crew said thanks

  • by dropping in a number of cute references to Disney projects old and new.

  • The film begins with a pre-Frozen flashback to Anna and Elsa as kids.

  • Although they live in a magical fairy tale kingdom of yore, they do what kids of any

  • time would do: play with dolls.

  • But these dolls are made out of ice, courtesy of Elsa's magical powers.

  • One of the figures is a little elephant with a long trunk and oversized earsDumbo,

  • in other words.

  • A slightly hulking, rounded one is a dead ringer for Baymax, the friendly robot from

  • the 2015 Disney/Marvel hit Big Hero 6.

  • There's also one who looks like adorable monster Totoro from My Neighbor Totoro, a 1988 Studio

  • Ghibli film to which Disney controlled American distribution rights.

  • "Merchandising!"

  • "Merchandising, what's that?"

  • "Merchandising!"

  • Of course, the most recognizable character in Disney's long history is Mickey Mouse.

  • Walt Disney's first successful creation is so recognizable and so popular that the silhouette

  • of this high-voiced star of "Steamboat Willie" is a linchpin of Disney's iconography.

  • Disney theme parks are full of "Hidden Mickeys" — those three black circles that comprise

  • the mouse's head and big ears are real-life Easter eggs to be found on the ground, walls,

  • and inside rides.

  • Just like Disneyland, Frozen II is sprinkled with a few Mickeys.

  • During a game of charades, Olaf cycles through several poses, one of which involves placing

  • coals on top of his head and one in his nose region.

  • The clue he's acting out is "mouse," and he chose to look like Mickey.

  • Later, when Elsa sings "Into the Unknown," she spins and leaves an ice circle in her

  • wake.

  • Very briefly, two circles appear atop that circle, forming the well-known Mickey shape.

  • Tons of Disney animated movies, including Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and the Seven

  • Dwarfs, Mulan, and Cinderella, are based on folk tales, legends, and fairy tales.

  • Frozen is based on The Snow Queen, a story first published in Danish in 1844.

  • The author, Hans Christian Andersen, also wrote the source material for another Disney

  • classic, The Little Mermaid.

  • He laid the narrative groundwork for Frozen, but Frozen II was created entirely by modern-day

  • screenwriters imagining new adventures for the characters inspired by Andersen's.

  • The author's presence is still felt in Frozen II, however, as an affectionate passing reference.

  • Toward the end of the movie, audiences see a flashback to when Elsa and Anna's parents

  • Iduna and Agnarrwere children.

  • Iduna runs over to Agnarr and inquires about the book in which he's happily engrossed.

  • He explains it's "a new Danish author."

  • He means Hans Christen Anderson.

  • Pixar is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Disney, so Disney distributes Pixar films such as

  • Toy Story, Cars, and Newt.

  • Oh, you haven't heard of Newt?

  • That's because it's a long-lost, unfinished project.

  • Announced in 2008, Newt was about the world's last male and female blue-footed newts that

  • must breed to save their species, only they don't get along.

  • Pixar had no choice but to cancel the filmFox's 2011 release Rio hit theaters first,

  • with virtually the same plot as Newt, except it was about macaws.

  • Frozen II just may have paid homage to this forgotten obscurity.

  • One of the cutest new characters introduced in the film is a big-eyed magical salamander

  • named Bruni who can spread fire the way Elsa spreads ice.

  • He bears more than a strong resemblance to the newts introduced in the concept art of

  • the ill-fated Newt.

  • The original Frozen was a massive hit.

  • Upon its release in 2013, it earned $1.2 billion at the box office.

  • And it's full of memorable songs — "Do You Want to Build a Snowman" and the Oscar-winning

  • "Let It Go" especiallyso adapting Frozen into a Broadway musical, like The Lion King

  • and Aladdin before it, was a no-brainer for Disney.

  • The live version of Frozen opened in 2018 and earned three major Tony Award nominations,

  • including one for Best Musical.

  • Co-starring in the challenging role of conflicted, heartbroken young Anna in that production:

  • actress Mattea Conforti.

  • When Frozen II producers put its cast together, they brought Conforti on board.

  • In a subtle Easter egg that only the most hardcore of Frozen franchise fans were likely

  • to notice, the former young Anna gave voice to young Elsa in Frozen II.

  • Apart from Elsa and Anna's epic quest, Frozen II also finds Kristoff wrestling with his

  • romantic situation.

  • His relationship with Anna is seemingly so solid that he wants to propose marriage, but

  • every time he gets a chance to pop the question, he messes it up.

  • Before long, he wonders if he and his love are drifting apart, and he expresses these

  • feelings in a big musical number called "Lost in the Woods."

  • It's performed in the style of a 1980s power ballad, and the sequence makes use of the

  • kinds of things one would see in a vintage '80s music video.

  • Kristoff voice actor Jonathan Groff explained:

  • "It's sort of for the adults.

  • It's a joke for the adults.

  • The little kids don't really get it."

  • "Were you living your best animated life doing that?"

  • "I was living my best animated life."

  • There's also one very specific reference to a well-known video from the 1970s.

  • The face of Kristoff, partially shadowed against a black screen, appears in the bottom of the

  • screen, while three reindeer, singing backup, show up in the top half.

  • It's a visual straight out of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody."

  • Frozen II is surprisingly dark and emotionally raw for a Disney cartoon aimed at grade-school-age

  • kids.

  • It finds Elsa and Anna coming to terms with their family's history and legacy, while Olaf

  • the goofy snowman seems to be going through an existential crisis brought about by aging

  • and being able to live in environments other than snow.

  • When Elsa heads out into the Enchanted Forest to find the source of a creepy voice only

  • she can hear, Anna, Kristoff and Olaf come along, too.

  • For a few moments, Frozen II turns into a road movie, with the gang piling into a reindeer-drawn

  • cart.

  • Olaf tries to help pass the time and entertain his friends by reciting a seemingly endless

  • litany of fun facts of varying levels of truth.

  • He's having so much fun he doesn't care if anybody wants to hear them or not.

  • This whole sequence is a pretty faithful re-creation of the famous scene from the 1996 dramedy

  • Jerry Maguire, in which Jerry and Dorothy patiently listen to Dorothy's son recite trivia

  • bits like,

  • "Jerry, Did you know the human head weighs eight pounds?"
