Most everyone has heard of the most recent iconic Disney movie, Frozen. However, did you know that Disney was coming out with a part two to the winter princess adventures? Frozen 2 was released on November 22, 2019, but because of the corona virus pandemic, Disney released it to Disney + early. For those of you who have never seen Frozen, Olaf, our snowman friend, is sure to give a quick recap of the first movie for you!
Frozen 2 is the very first sequel ever made by Disney for a princess movie. This is a big deal! Disney has made numerous princess movies, many of which got great fame, however, Frozen is the only movie to ever get a sequel. It is also rumoured that there may even be a Frozen 3, making this almost a series, like the High School Musicals.
Frozen 2 was directed by both Jennifer Lee, and Chris Buck. It was produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios. The cast included Idina Menzel as Elsa, Kristen Bell as Anna, and Josh Gad as Olaf. Frozen 2 was released in 2019, and Frozen was released in 2013. It received a 3.8/5 from Common Sense Media, a 77% from Rotten Tomatoes, and 64% from Metacritic. The two sisters, Anna and Elsa, set out on another adventure as this time Elsa hears a noise in the woods and sets out to follow it and find it. The story encompasses the journey they go on and the struggles they face.
Frozen was known for its song “Let it Go” by Idina Menzel. Frozen 2 was also filled with many good songs and an astounding soundtrack. The best song, and probably the most popular from this movie is “Into the Unknown” by Idina Menzel and Aurora. The Frozen series out did themselves again with an amazing soundtrack, that makes you want to sing along.
Personally, I really enjoyed this movie. I think it was a very good sequel to the first movie, and was just as good, if not better. Often, sequels are not as good as the first, however, that is not the case with this movie. Also, I thought that there were many therapeutic and inspiring hidden messages throughout the movie, from lines spoken by the characters, to lyrics sung in the songs. I think this movie is a bit mature for young children, however, and needs to be viewed with guardians for young ones.
