It’s been seven years since the record-breaking original introduced viewers to Disney princess Elsa (Idina Menzel), her sister Anna (Kristen Bell), and pals Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and Olaf (Josh Gad) – and of course the phenomenal signature tune Let It Go, which is still stuck on repeat in everyone’s heads.
Kids have played the disc on a loop ever since, so familiarity with the first film is a given when diving into the sequel, although Olaf does provide a hilarious recap. Opening with a bedtime story flashback with huge significance to the events that follow, Frozen II sees Elsa and co. embarking on a journey to an enchanted forest in the far north to discover the source of a mysterious song that is calling to the ice queen. Shrouded in mist and home to elemental forces, this realm could hold the answer to the disappearance of Elsa and Anna’s parents.
Deftly recapturing the magic of the original with a new playlist of songs and beloved characters that have matured along with the target audience, Frozen II is bigger and of course a bit darker, and the animation is even more eye-popping and exquisite.
