迪士尼将开拍《冰雪奇缘》续集,“续集”英语怎么说?

    近日,迪士尼官方正式宣布将《冰雪奇缘2》的制作提上日程。影片的衍生短片《冰雪奇缘:生日惊喜》也在本月与北美影迷见面。

我们来看一段相关的英文报道

    Frozen 2 has been officially announced by Disney.
    A sequel to the smash hit film was hotly anticipated by fans and largely expected, but it has now been confirmed that the movie is in development.
    Josh, who voices lovable snowman Olaf and is confirmed to reprise the role, was quick to share the news with his 121,000 Twitter followers.
    Kristen Bell, the voice of Princess Anna, celebrated by sharing a photo which showed her resting her head on a bag of ice.
    It suggested Kristen will be back in the role of Anna, and it would be very surprising if any of the central cast members did not return for the sequel.

 

    迪士尼官方消息,《冰雪奇缘2》(Frozen 2)终于要来了。
    粉丝们此前热切期待大热电影《冰雪奇缘》制作续集,现在官方终于确认了续集正在制作中。
    《冰雪奇缘》中可爱雪人奥拉夫(Olaf)的配音员乔什确定将在续集里出演,他在第一时间和12.1万的推特粉丝分享了这一消息。
    安娜公主(Anna)的配音员克里斯丁·贝尔分享了一张她休息时枕着冰袋的图片来庆祝。
    这表明克里斯丁将继续出演安娜,不出意外的话,主要配音演员都会在续集中回归。

 

 

【讲解】
    文中的sequel就是“续集”的意思,是可数名词,既可以指(书或电影的)“续篇,续集”,如:The director said the plans for a sequel were still up in the air.(导演表示拍摄续集的计划还没落实。),也可以表示“余波,随之而来的事”,如: The police said the clash was a sequel to yesterday's nationwide strike.(警方说这场冲突是昨天全国大罢工的余波。)
    最后一段中的cast作名词,意为“演员,演职人员”,如:choose the cast选演员),和电影相关的词汇还有:blockbuster大片),premiere首映),leading actor and actress男女主角),director导演)等。
