Elsa the Snow Queen has an extraordinary gift — the power to create ice and snow. But no matter how happy she is to be surrounded by the people of Arendelle, Elsa finds herself strangely unsettled. After hearing a mysterious voice call out to her, Elsa travels to the enchanted forests and dark seas beyond her kingdom — an adventure that soon turns into a journey of self-discovery.

The song used to call Elsa to the enchanted forest is really a Scandinavian herding call called kulning.
Figures resembling Dumbo, Snow White, Baymax from Pixar’s Big Hero 6, and Totoro from My Neighbour Totoro can be seen at the beginning of the film when Anna and Elsa are playing with snow figurines.
