Frozen 2, arguably Disney’s most anticipated sequel since Toy Story 2, stormed into theaters last November. Now, whether you missed seeing it in theaters or are hankering for a rewatch, Frozen 2 is available on DVD and Blu-ray, and at digital libraries like Amazon Prime Video (though there’s no word yet on when it will join Frozen on Disney Plus). Either version comes with a host of special features, including a singalong version of the movie, outtakes and deleted scenes, and a version of “Into the Unknown” sung in 29 languages that you may remember from the 2020 Academy Awards.

The follow-up to the 2013 phenomenon Frozen, the movie expands on Arendelle lore, grapples with climate change, and, of course, introduces another Idina Menzel power ballad that will inevitably get stuck in your head for days on end.

If you’re planning on picking up a copy of Frozen 2 to enjoy in the comfort of your own home, there are a lot of options. Between 4K capabilities, special edition box sets, and exclusive special features, we break down what you’ll get with each version of Frozen 2.

Frozen 2 digital editions

The digital edition of Frozen 2 includes some exclusive special features: an introduction to the Oscar-winning husband-and-wife team behind the music of Frozen and Frozen 2, and an animatic of Olaf singing his deleted song, “Unmeltable Me.”

While Frozen 2 is available to rent or buy on most digital storefronts, only Amazon, Vudu, and Fandango Now offer the film in 4K UHD.

Frozen 2 on DVD and Blu-ray

If you’d prefer a physical version of Frozen 2, you’ve got several options. The cheapest is the DVD, which costs $19.99. However, the much more versatile option is the “Multi-Screen Edition,” which includes Blu-ray, DVD, and digital copies of the movie for an additional $5, at $24.99. A 4K UHD “Collector’s Edition” is another $5 more, at $29.99.

Frozen 2 special editions

Several retailers are also offering exclusive special editions of Frozen 2, with different goodies — both physical and digital — available in each package.

Walmart’s “Ultimate Collector’s Edition” comes with 4K UHD Blu-ray, standard Blu-ray, and digital copies of Frozen 2, along with two exclusive digital bonus features that are delivered through Vudu. The first is “Frozen Fashion,” a deep dive into the movie’s costume design. The second is called “Olaf: Older and Wiser,” which appears to be a collection of interviews discussing the evolution of the Frozen franchise’s polarizing snowman.

Best Buy isn’t offering any extra bonus features with its Frozen 2 special edition, but it does package its Blu-ray and 4K UHD discs in an exclusive steelbook case. The Best Buy steelbook edition also includes a digital copy of the film.

Finally, Target’s limited edition Frozen 2 package includes a physical gallery book with concept art and behind-the-scenes info from the filmmakers. This edition includes 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and digital versions of Frozen 2. Target is also offering an exclusive package of both Frozen and Frozen 2 on DVD, Blu-ray, and digital. (A solely digital version of this bundle is available via Vudu.)
