In addition to learning about Frozen 2, readers will also learn about final installment of the Star Wars saga Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker!

After the success of Frozen, the filmmakers discuss the stories they had to tell about these beloved characters — why does Elsa have powers? why doesn’t Anna? Writer/director Jennifer Lee and stars Kristen Bell (voice of Anna) and Josh Gad (voice of Olaf) share a peek at the journey the characters must take to save the kingdom of Arendelle in the new movie — and answer those questions!

Plus, Boyega shares some amusing on-set stories, including what his final on-set meal was with fellow cast members Daisy Ridley and Naomi Ackie!
