The first full trailer for Disney's highly-anticipated Frozen sequel has dropped, and it definitely has a darker atmosphere than the first flick.

The trailer shows similar themes to the first film, of siblings defying the odds and belting out some great ballads, but they face an even bigger challenge this time around.

The clip shows Elsa (Idina Menzel) running towards a dark and stormy sea, but her magical powers don't seem to be rescuing her from peril.

The troll Pabbie (Ciarán Hinds) begins a voiceover explaining about the dark world of enchantments up north, where Elsa and Anna are heading.

“Elsa, the past is not what it really seems- you must find the truth,” he says. “We have always feared Elsa’s powers were too much for this world. Now we must hope they are enough.”

A wild adventure outside of Arendelle is in the works, but will it be too dangerous for the sisters and their friends? The royal siblings are possibly searching for answers behind their parents' past.

The first film garnered over $1.2 billion in revenue worldwide, and the sequel's production values look a lot higher.

The audience is shown stunning, more detailed landscapes of forests, mountains and seas alongside our favourite characters; Anna (Kristen Bell), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and Olaf (Josh Gad).

The trailer doesn't give anything away about the soundtrack for the sequel, but we're sure Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez have some great songs in store for us.

Frozen 2 will be released November 22 in all cinemas.

Kristen Bell has always been open about her struggle with mental health. 

Having previously spoken publicly about the depression she suffered as a teenager and the ongoing battles that followed, the actress is determined to break the stigma that surrounds the issue. 

In a new video for the Child Mind Institute, the 37-year-old shared the advice she would have given to her younger self. 

“What I would say to my younger self is don’t be fooled by this game of perfection that humans play,” she said. 

“Because Instagram and magazines and TV shows, they strive for a certain aesthetic, everything looks so beautiful, and people seem like they don’t have problems, but everyone’s human.”

She went on to stress the importance of self-love and care, even when we are at our lowest points. 

“You deserve to feel just as beautiful on the days you wear no makeup, and the days you don’t shower, and the days you feel like you’re depressed,” she said. 

“You have an obligation to take care of yourself from the inside out, because that’s how you can truly feel beautiful.”

Urging those suffering with mental health issues to seek help, Kristen assured viewers that they are never alone. 

“There are resources out there, if you’re feeling anxious, of people to talk to and doctors to interact with and there are tons of solutions out there for you,” she said. 

“You are not alone. Never feel embarrassed or ashamed about who you are.

“Never feel embarrassed or ashamed about the uniqueness that is you, because there are people out there to help and we’re all just human, and you can do it.”


While the fifth series of Peaky Blinders sadly isn't airing until 2019, at least we have Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard's amazing Tommy Shelby costumes to tide us over in the meantime.

The couple donned their best waistcoats and flat caps for their friend Audra's Peaky Blinders-themed birthday party.

Not only that, but the birthday bash actually took place at a racetrack! 

Looking through these pics, we honestly can't get over how dapper the Frozen star and her husband look.

One person aptly summed up our feelings towards the adorable parents: "You two are so damn cute I can hardly even stand it!"

Yep, the couple of the year award definitely goes to Dax and Kristen.

The pair were also joined by Ryan Hansen, who starred alongside Kristen as Dick Casablancas in Veronica Mars.

We may not want to hang around some of the violent gangsters from Peaky Blinders, but we would LOVE to sport these 1920s get-ups.

"Peaky Party in full effect at the race track," Kristen wrote on Instagram.

Her followers adored the couple's fancy dress, and we feel like Kristen's post has probably inspired plenty of other Peaky Blinders-themed shindigs by now!

And we have to say, we don't think Kristen's ever looked classier (or more intimidating) than in the photo below:

Now, does anyone know where we can pick up a grey waistcoat…?


As Hollywood couples go, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are among our favourites.

And one of the reasons we adore them so much is because they don't pretend to be perfect.

From disclosing she sometimes finds marriage difficult to revealing that she regularly attends couple's therapy with Dax, Kristin refuses to sugarcoat the reality of her relationship for the press and public.

And recently, she went one step further by admitting she struggles with the concept of monogamy.

"I'm quite positive we are not meant to be monogamous. It's difficult, and it requires a lot of attention, vulnerability, and openness," she said during an interview with Men's Journal.

Elaborating on this 'openness', Kristen explains that Dax is more than happy to speak up when it comes to what he needs of their four-year marriage.

Kristen celebrates this trait as she believes open communication prevents the possibility of infidelity.

"He's very open about what he needs to stay satisfied in our relationship, because if one partner isn't satisfied, you just kiss it goodbye; somebody's going to stray," she argued.

"He's very direct about his emotions and I'm grateful for that because it lets me in on the way he thinks as far as tending to our marriage— when we should go to therapy, when we have to be better at intimacy, all those things in order to meet each other's needs."

Kristen and Dax, who share two children together, have been together since 2007.


The Spice Girls reunion has been filling our newsfeeds for the past few weeks now, and Ellen DeGeneres and Kristen Bell decided to completely take the mick out of it yesterday.

Kristen appeared as a co-host on the popular talk-show and the pair decided to perform a little stint on the girlband's comeback.

"Last week the Spice Girls announced they're doing a big reunion tour, but Posh and Sporty are not going to be a part of it," Ellen said. 

"They're holding auditions for two spots in the group. Kristen and I are the perfect choice," she said. "Obviously."

The women dressed up as Posh and Sporty and the video clip is just hilarious.

Have a look at the video above and laugh your pants off.


While Tom Hiddleston and John Mayer kept Twitter entertained through last night’s Emmys, Kristen Bell set to work with winning over Instagram.

Before the event even began, the Bad Moms star used the ‘gram to keep fans up-to-date with her red carpet beauty prep – a process which included a suspect-looking lip conditioning sticker and whole lot of joking around.

Clearly in the depths of a makeover, the actress shared a snap of herself wearing a face mask with the caption: “I have serious doubts this is actually a lip conditioning sticker my makeup artist @simonesiegl applied over my mouth…I’m pretty sure she just wanted me to zip it.”

She then posted a pic of her puffed up hair and wrote: “Caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and said, confidently ‘This looks GREAT guys!  Let’s go!’  Then I was informed we’re only half way done.”

It looks like the 36-year-old’s glam time really did pay off as she appeared on the red carpet in one of the most stunning dresses of the night – a full skirted floral gown with a perfectly plunging neckline which has already been classed as bridal inspiration by online commentators.

Model Emily Ratajkowski, American Pie star Natasha Lyonne and Golden Globe nominee Sarah Paulson also wowed on the night with their very different outfits of choice.

As if Kristen hadn’t already made her way into our go-to Insta list, the Forgetting Sarah Marshall star finished off her night just as we would – by tucking into a big slice of pizza.

Looking slightly less glam than in her earlier pics, the actress shared a photo of herself with sauce on her chin alongside the caption: “The shading on my chin tonight was courtesy of @pizzasauce.”

While any public display of coupley affection on social media is seriously vomit-inducing, this homemade video charting Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard's recent escapades in Africa is kind of hilarious. 

The clip, which is set to Toto's Africa, includes footage from the trip as well as the pair acting a bit ridiculous. 

This was our last trip before having kids," reads the description. 

"Our sole objective was to rage hard and honour Toto properly. Hope you enjoy."

The lip-syncing scenes are definitely a bit gas but we can't decide if the whole thing is still a bit cringe. 

Watch the video below and judge for yourselves: 




Excuse you but there is a new Disney princess in town and she also a personal friend of Queen Elsa of the smash-hit Frozen.

Kristen Bell, who was the voice of Anna in the animated success left a dream-come-true voicemail for one Frozen fan. Avery Huffman, 6, was diagnosed with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), last month. This means Avery has a brain tumour which cannot be operated on.

Kristen got into full Princess of Arendale mode to speak with her young fan. She congratulated her for being “so brave” as she continues to fight her illness.

She also let Avery know that her sister Queen Elsa would love to make her an honorary princess.

You can watch the full video below- but be prepared to experience some very intense feels.

Avery’s parents are also chronicling their daughter’s battle with cancer by using the hashtag #AveryStrong where hundreds of Twitter users have been leaving their messages of support. 





It seems that Disney were having a lot more fun than we realised when they were making our absolute favourite film, Frozen.

Despite Frozen being the most popular Walt Disney film in recent years, and people coming up with all sorts of conspiracy theories about it, it seems that there was one joke the creators slipped in that we all missed.

At the end of the film, in the middle of the credits, the studio puts in an apology on behalf of Kristoff.

You may remember during the film when the character Kristoff claims that “all men eat their own boogers.” Well, apparently Disney decided to make it clear, in a hilarious manner, that this is the opinion of Kristoff, and not the company.

The statement reads, “The views and opinions expressed by Kristoff in the film that all men eat their own boogers are solely his own and do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of The Walt Disney Company or the filmmakers.”

The apology continued, “Neither The Walt Disney Company nor the filmmakers make any representation of the accuracy of any such views and opinions.”

As we are still finding more and more jokes in the Disney film, we are also delighted that Frozen 2 has been confirmed and Kristen Bell is set to return to voice Princess Anna once again. 




Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard are one of our favourite Hollywood couples for a number of reasons, but we think their latest display of honesty has made us truly relate to them.

Speaking to Good Housekeeping recently, the celeb couple revealed that they go to couple's therapy, not necessarily because they've any massive problems, but to keep themselves on the straight and narrow.

With very matter-of-fact logic, Kristen says: "You do better in the gym with a trainer, you don't figure out how to cook without reading a recipe. Therapy is not something to be embarrassed about."

Preach Kristen, preach!

So in love with each other, the smitten pair are determined to iron out any creases before they become insurmountable obstacles, with Dax saying: "You can't go after nine years and start figuring out what patterns you're in."

Like any couple, Kristen admits that they sometimes struggle to communicate efficiently and need a therapist to help them get their points across.

Elaborating on the role therapy plays in her life, Kristen says: "If something p*sses you off, you've got to find the balls to bring it up immediately, and say it in a way that the other person can hear. Go talk about it with a therapist who can mediate. You'll walk out of the room feeling like you're on the same team."

Acknowledging that the course of true love never runs smoothly, Dax opened up about his impression of Kristen when they first started dating, saying: "There were hurdles, things she didn't trust about me, things I didn't trust about her. I just kept going back to 'This person has the thing I want, and I have to figure out how we can exist peacefully."

Yep, it's happened- we love them even more now.



We're not quite sure how we'd feel if our partners opened up on live television about our recent childbirth, but then again Kristen Bell is probably used to Dax Shepard by now!

Chatting to everyone's favourite chat show host, Ellen DeGeneres, Dax didn't hold back in front of millions of viewers when describing the arrival of his baby daughter, Delta, three weeks ago.

Describing the moment he met the new addition, who arrived via C-section, an -ever candid Dax said: "You peek around the sheet and they're lifting out the baby, but then you notice your wife is completely disassembled! I can see inside of her!"

Appearing to be more fascinated by the whole medical aspect than the arrival of his baby, Dax went on to say: "I was like, it's a girl! Your liver's out, I think. And then those are definitely your intestines. Oh God, put her back together correctly!"

We wonder if Kristen had anything to say to her funnyman husband on his return home!
