After a paltry holiday box office last year, Disney is betting on the massive "Frozen" and "Star Wars" franchises to score big in 2019.
On Wednesday, the company dropped its first teaser trailer for "Frozen 2," the highly anticipated sequel to the 2013 hit.
Audiences have been patiently awaiting the sequel's release since the voice actors of Anna and Olaf, Kristen Bell and Josh Gad, first tweeted about it in 2017.
"Frozen" was a breakout hit for Disney Animation, garnering more than $400 million at the domestic box office.
The film, which introduced fans to characters such as Olaf the snowman, Princess Anna and Queen Elsa, went on to earn more than $1.2 billion worldwide at the box office and win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature film in 2014.
With the success of sequels such as "Finding Dory," which garnered about $1.03 billion at the box office in 2016, it's no surprise Disney was keen to bring the cast of "Frozen" back to the big screen.

In addition to "Frozen 2," moviegoers can expect to see the yet-unnamed "Star Wars: Episode IX," the final film in Lucasfilm's most recent "Star Wars" trilogy, in theaters in December 2019.
The two films are expected to dominate the holiday box office, something Disney desperately needs after a lukewarm showing in 2018.
Last year, Disney released "The Nutcracker and the Four Realms," "Ralph Breaks the Internet" and "Mary Poppins Returns" during its fiscal first quarter. The company racked up $388 million in domestic box office grosses, according to data from Comscore.
