Frozen 2 Review
I’m not going to lie, I hate sequels. As much as I love the story to continue, I always feel like it’s a let down. There have been few times when the sequel has been just as good if not better than the first. This was one of those cases. I LOVED Frozen. The songs, characters and storyline and overall theme tugged at the heart and had you wanting more. Even during subsequent shorts, one just couldn’t get enough Frozen’s lovable characters.
So when I heard that Frozen 2 was in development I was curious and intrigued. As good as the shorts had been, would it stack up to its predecessor. Honestly, I think it did more than that. It blew me away to the point where I seriously believe it was almost better than the first.
The storyline for Frozen 2 goes more in depth as to the Why Elsa is the way she is. Frozen 2 delves into Elsa’s with magical powers. What truths about the past await Elsa as she ventures into the unknown to the enchanted forests and dark seas beyond Arendelle?
The answers are calling her but also threatening her kingdom. Together with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven, she’ll face a dangerous but remarkable journey.
Frozen 2 helps her deal with real emotions including a scene that had me ugly crying where she runs into the the ghost of deceased mother. You can catch that song below.
Honestly, this is just the glimpse of all the power and emotions you will feel watching Frozen 2. In “Frozen,” Elsa feared her powers were too much for the world. In “Frozen 2,” she must hope they are enough.
