Frozen 2 is a sequel to 2013’s very popular hit known as Frozen, bringing with it some of the same magic that was present in the original.  Taking place after the events of Frozen, Elsa and Anna must go into the enchanted forest and fix the bad blood that still resonates from olden times. Throughout this journey, they discover unsettling revelations about the history of the land as they go through many twists and turns. 

This dazzling musical emphasizes the principles of sisterhood, love, empowerment, and acceptance. Frozen 2 introduces catchy songs that are sure to entertain all young Elsa and Anna fans. The storyline in Frozen 2 is less simple than the original from 2013. The story unfolds with multiple character arcs and the plot of Northuldra which is reminiscent of U.S. history and the fate of the Native Americans. This similarity to real-life history may not catch the eye of young viewers. There are a few musical interludes and maybe even more than the previous movie. There is also still enough humor to please the viewers.

Olaf not only matures in a very funny and philosophical way, but also worries about the universe and his place in it. He comes off as a clever and angsty teen throughout the movie. The music in the movie does not contain any successors to songs such as “Let It Go”, but “Into the Unknown” has the same emotional feeling behind it with Elsa’s (Idina Menzel) amazing voice. Some of the songs sound similar, but it’s expected to be that way with the extreme popularity of the songs from the previous movie. Kristoff finally got his solo that was missing from the first movie with the song “Lost in The Woods” which is styled after an 80s music video. Anna has her new song called “The Next Right Thing” which is quite a bittersweet song. Olaf’s usual comical approach to his songs gives him “When I’m Older” which is just like the Olaf that many fans know and love. 

Since the love aspect of the movie is already established, the subplot of this is Kristoff being unsure if Anna wants to marry him since she’s so worried about her sister’s well-being. Fans should not be expecting the same magic that the first delivered to viewers. However, this movie is a fitting example of Elsa and Anna’s promise to protect one another as well as their Kingdom.
