Just when you thought it was safe to put away your kids’ Frozen soundtracks…

The first teaser trailer for Frozen 2 dropped Wednesday, and the internet promptly swooned as a new wave of Frozen fever is expected to take over the masses leading to the Disney sequel’s November release. More epic in scope and seemingly darker in tone than the beloved original film, Frozen 2 reunites Elsa, Anna, Christoph, Olaf, and Sven for a new adventure that takes them far from Arendelle and requires Elsa to ice surf ocean waves during a storm. In short, we are Here. For. It.

To help tide us over until Disney releases more sneak peeks at the sequel, here’s a quick look back and breakdown of some of the interesting numbers and stats that helped turn Frozen into, well, Frozen.
