The Disney musical Frozen in 2013 created a sensation, parents of young daughters didn’t realize the impact of this animation, with Frozen toothbrushes, hairbrushes, Elsa dolls, Elsa backpacks, snow globes, birthday themes and much more!!
And for all ages there was the sensational song, Let It Go, which hit the minds of adults and children, you saw this song everywhere in Social Media!
The news of the sequel was a much-awaited one, where we just wanted more of the Frozen, more of the songs and above all More of the sister love and bonding!
The sequel takes us some years forward from the end of the first film into the happy ever after, but begins with a flashback to Elsa and Anna’s childhood, in which their parents King Agnarr (Alfred Molina) and Queen Iduna (voiced by Evan Rachel Wood) tell the little girls at bedtime about the enchanted forest that lies towards the north, ruled by four spirits, symbolized by four standing stones: earth, air, fire, and water. It is a place with unhappy family associations.
Suddenly in the present day, Elsa hears a strange voice calling her from the forest, and she realizes that she must journey there to confront and discover a family secret, she journies with the well-known and well-loved cast of characters by her side: Anna and Kristoff and also Sven the reindeer and the beloved Olaf (Josh Gad).
Though it was great seeing all the characters together, I noticed that in Frozen 2, there were too many songs, literally every 5 min, there was a song popping up. though they were great songs none of them had the appeal of ‘Let it Go’
I couldn’t help but feel there was something missing from the storyline, there is something a bit underpowered a matter of danger and drama created and artificially resolved, characters separated and reunited, bad stuff apparently happening and then unhappening.
The highlight this time was Olaf, he seems wiser and matured now, he also had a great song ‘When I’m Older”. He has a very funny scene in which he has to recap the events of the first film in about 10 seconds for people who are not aware of them. There’s also an amusing running gag about Kristoff’s maladroit attempts at a marriage proposal being misunderstood by Anna.
Frozen 2 is a much-matured storyline compared to the first, the characters have matured, it’s worth watching nothing beats the Disney storytelling, the breathtaking scenes, the magical adventure and above all teaching us the importance of family, love and above all the importance and beauty of sisterly love.
