In Frozen 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 she further releases herself from the confines of her life as queen when her braid is undone and her hair flows completely free.

Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

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.

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.

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 the short 'Frozen Fever' but not in the featurette 'Olaf's Frozen Adventure.' 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).

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.
