Frozen 2, also known as Frozen II, is a 2019 American 3D computer-animated musicalfantasy film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios. The 58th animated film produced by the studio, it is the sequel to the 2013 film Frozen and features the return of directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, producer Peter Del Vecho, songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, and composer Christophe Beck. Lee also returns as screenwriter, penning the screenplay from a story by her, Buck, Marc E. Smith, Anderson-Lopez and Lopez,while Byron Howard executive-produced the film. Veteran voice cast Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad, and Ciarán Hinds return as their previous characters, and are joined by newcomers Sterling K. Brown, Evan Rachel Wood, Alfred Molina, Martha Plimpton, Jason Ritter, Rachel Matthews, and Jeremy Sisto.
Set three years after the events of the first film, the story follows Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven who embark on a journey beyond their kingdom of Arendelle in order to discover the origin of Elsa’s magical powers and save their kingdom after a mysterious voice calls out to Elsa.
Frozen 2 is another great addition to the Disney library. The animation is beautiful and the songs are very memorable. Despite the film not having any real antagonist per se, the story is still interesting while adding to the Frozen mythology.
The story does tend to get a little dark this time around and could be a little too much for the kiddos.
Nevertheless, Frozen 2 succeeds where few Disney sequels do and that’s surpassing the original. Despite all the individual stories seemingly wrapped up by the end of the film, Frozen 3 is an inevitability at this point considering the box office impact the film has had.
HipsterZOMBIEJoint Experience highly recommends Frozen 2.
