Frozen II Review

As amazing as the first Frozen movie was, the sequel was even better. With new songs, new characters, and an exciting new story, Frozen II will be one to remember.

In the beginning of the movie, Elsa hears a voice that seems to be calling to her. In an attempt to see what it is trying to say, she unintentionally wakes up ancient nature spirits. After hearing that this puts Arendelle in danger, Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven must travel to an enchanted forest to the North in order to save the kingdom, find out what the voice is trying to say, and right a wrong that had been done in the past. 

Although Let it Go will always be a classic, the soundtrack of Frozen II was another one to sing along to. Idina Menzel, who is the voice of Elsa, once again knocks it out of the park with Into The Unknown and Show Yourself, her solo songs in the movie (accompanied by Aurora Aksnes). The Next Right Thing mirrored the emotional scene that came before it, and although its content was sad, the 80s music video -themed presentation of Lost In The Woods was hilarious for the audience. 

Many new characters were introduced, including a group of soldiers from Arendelle, and a tribe called the Northuldra who lived in the enchanted forest and harnessed elemental magic. Elsa befriends one of the nature spirits, which is a cute, lovable salamander, which seems to follow Disney’s animal companion trope.

Similar to the first movie, there were plot twists left and right, and there were scenes that kept the audience on the edge of their seat. Unlike many of the other more recent Disney movies, though, (which includes the first Frozen movie) Frozen II was surprisingly dark. 

Frozen II’s animation was amazing and even better than that of the first movie. One scene, which involved droplets of water, was extremely detailed and realistic. If people were shown that shot before watching the movie, they may not even know that it was generated by a computer.

As with every other Disney movie, Frozen II had some clever easter eggs hidden in the background. During a scene when the main characters were playing charades, Olaf made himself look like Mickey, following the hidden Mickey trend that many (if not all) Disney films have. In the beginning of the movie, there was a scene of Anna and Elsa playing as children, and Elsa made toys of people and animals out of snow. One was an elephant that resembled Dumbo, and another was Baymax, a robot from the movie Big Hero 6.

Overall, 2019 had a lot of amazing movies, but Frozen II was one of the best ones, and it is surely a film to remember.
