‘Frozen II’ review: Beautiful musical sequel

3 min read

Disney’s Frozen II brings us back to Arendelle with a great, magical adventure of Anna and Elsa.

Frozen II is considered as one of the most anticipated sequels this year. Following the blockbuster success of the previous installment, Frozen II brings us back to Arendelle and continues the adventures of its magical Queen Elsa (Idina Menzel); her kind sister, Anna (Kristen Bell) and her boyfriend Kristoff (Jonathan Groff); and everyone’s favorite snowman, Olaf (Josh Gad). This time around, the characters undertake a dangerous journey to a mysterious enchanted forest, hoping to discover the source of Elsa’s powers. The sisters learn more about their parents’ deaths and backgrounds; thanks to several flashbacks, viewers may feel even sadder about the orphans’ loss. There’s a lot of humor (thanks, Olaf!) and of course big musical numbers.

The film may still be considered as a great musical piece from Disney. There are new songs like ‘Into the Unknown’, ‘Show Yourself’ and ‘Lost in the Woods’ that will hit you right in every way as these songs will surely be on your playlist. Yes, the sequel is ultimately a bit more intense than the original and a bit more like an add-on because of its hype but there’s a lot more to look forward to seeing in this one. Everything about the story, even though simple, successfully puts positive messages about sisterhood, empowerment, acceptance, and true love. It’s still a heartwarming tale that everyone would enjoy. There’s this one song entitled ‘When I am Older’ that would really move our hearts even whether you are young or an adult viewer. There’s just so much feels in it.

It’s a beautiful musical sequel. Frozen II may have enhanced the story of Anna and Elsa by bringing up flashbacks about their parents but it didn’t just focus on them all the way. It includes Kristoff and Olaf which adds up to the color of what it wanted to tell. Both of them have a solo part that would make everyone happy and entertained along the film. It’s fun seeing them together with Anna and Elsa. Olaf almost steals the show because of his heartwarming messages to other characters. He totally reflects on everyone as he shows how things may change while we grow up in life.

Overall, the film is so good because it does not just stick to it’s musical and funny tropes, but also provides plenty heartwarming life lessons about sisterhood, friendship, true love and acceptance. Also, there’s Anna and Elsa’s being good examples of being strong women who lead, communicate and support each other with confidence. It’s just worth your time!

Furthermore, Frozen II is magically a beautiful musical film that you and your family would enjoy. This is the sequel that brings us into the unknown to create and see the best version of our self.
