Due to John Lasseter leaving all of Disney's animation areas by the end of the year, this could be Tudyk's last consecutive animated film.
  • The Northuldra tribe's culture is inspired by the Sámi people who are indigenous to Norway, Sweden, Finland, and northern Russia. Disney signed a formal agreement with Sámi representatives who promote the group's rights internationally; they formed an advisory group of artists, historians, elders, and political leaders. The Northern Sami language dub is called "Jiknon 2."

  • When Anna and Elsa are playing with snow figures as children the "monster" figurine looks like Marshmallow's face on Olaf's body.

Spoilers

  • Kristoff's song "Lost in the Woods" is done in the style of a 1980's power ballad. The sequence even recreates scenes from well known videos of that era, including those from the bands Whitesnake and Queen.
  • Elsa travels through snow recreations of the past, including several scenes from the original film. One of these is herself singing the hit song "Let It Go." Elsa seems to cringe slightly when she hears it.
  • An image of Elsa talking to another woman (Honeymaren) led to Internet speculation that this character would be a love interest for Elsa. This turned out not to be the case, however.
  • Marshmallow (the snow monster Elsa created in the first movie) and the Snowgies (byproducts of Elsa's magical sneezes from the short 'Frozen Fever') make brief appearances in a post-credits scene.
  • At the end of the first film, Elsa gives Olaf a small, magical snow cloud which hovers over his head to keep him from melting. This cloud is visible throughout Frozen Fever (2015), but not in Olaf's Frozen Adventure (2017), which takes place in a December, after the events of this film. There was originally a song in this film, sung by Olaf, called "Unmeltable Me" which explains how Elsa's magic has gotten more powerful, enabling her to make him unmeltable without the cloud. In the finished film, however, the only hint we get of this is Anna's line "enjoying the new permafrost?"
  • A longstanding fan theory (jokingly endorsed by the film's directors) was that Anna and Elsa's parents didn't drown, but actually washed up on the shores of Africa where they had a son, who went on to become Tarzan (1999). This film seems to dispel that theory by revealing the details of the Royal couple's fate. It also appears to debunk a theory that they were on their way to the wedding of Rapunzel and Flynn Rider and that Ariel found their sunken ship in The Little Mermaid (1989).
  • Kristoff unintentionally accomplishes what Prince Hans set out to do in the original movie, by marrying Anna, who then became Queen of Arendelle after Elsa abdicated the throne.
  • Exactly like its predecessor Frozen (2013), one of the final lines of the film is Elsa asking "Are you ready?"
  • Ahtohallan is revealed to a be a glacier rather than a river. Glaciers are occasionally referred to as rivers of ice as they do move; speeds have been recorded as fast as 45m/day (6.2 feet/hour).
  • A hidden Mickey appears as a hole in the top left corner of Anna and Elsa's parent's wrecked ship.
  • Frozen II marks only the second time in Disney animation that a princess celebrates a coronation day onscreen, in that case: Anna; the first was Elsa in Frozen (2013). It is also only the third time an animated princess has made the transition to queen. The first Disney animated princess to become sovereign ruler of her nation was Kida from Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001), although her coronation was entirely off-screen.
  • Elsa's hair style continues to document her progression in moving toward her true calling in life. In Frozen (2013) she indicated she has "let it go" and moved past the restrictions of her previous life when she pulls down her neatly pinned up hair into the flowing braid and messy bangs. In Frozen II (2019) she further releases herself from the confines of her life as queen when her braid is undone and her hair flows completely free.
  • The water spirit is a horse. In Norse mythology, Nix/Nokk were water spirits that often took the form of horses in order to lure humans onto their backs and then drown them. The fire spirit is a salamander. In European folklore, it was said that salamanders were produced by fire and could withstand its heat, even eating fire for food.
  • The scene where Elsa is fighting the fire spirit, with Olaf cowering close by her for protection, mirrors a scene in the beginning of the first Frozen film, where a young Elsa cowers close to her father, King Agnarr, who holds her close protectively.
  • King Runeard is the seventh main antagonist of a Walt Disney Animation Studios film to fall to death after the Wicked Queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), Professor Ratigan in The Great Mouse Detective (1986), Percival C. McLeach in The Rescuers Down Under (1990), Gaston in Beauty and the Beast (1991), Claude Frollo in The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996), and Mother Gothel in Tangled (2010). Bill Sykes from Oliver and Company (1988) considered an eighth character to fall to his death, but it is likely that he is already dead from the train collusion that sends his body off the Brooklyn Bridge and into the East River.
