Frozen II Storms Theaters

***Spoiler Alert***

The sequel to the extremely popular family movie, “Frozen,” stormed theaters Nov. 22.

It generated a record setting $125 million over the five day holiday weekend with viewers eager to discover the next steps of Anna and Elsa. 

Though the first movie was an international hit, with a constant playing of the tune “Let It Go,” the sequel may even be better.

“Frozen II” provides an idea of change in a way that is accessible to children, pre-teens and especially teenagers.

Olaf is growing up and becoming more aware of his surroundings and facts of life, while Anna learns to let go of her sister and start her own life.

Elsa plays the most important role when she puts herself first to discover her purpose in life, even if that means leaving what she knows behind.

The first step forward for her occurs in the best song of the movie, “Into the Unknown” which is about being afraid of letting go of the familiar to explore the different paths in life.

Overall, the movie connected themes extremely well with the dam having to destroy Arendelle for everything to be set right again in the forest – though Arendelle was not destroyed.

Elsa saved the day once again, for an epic resolution of “Frozen II.”

The animation was done extremely well during these scenes especially, with fine details alluding to the time and dedication put into the production.

There were many captivating parts to this film, but some ran short of the expectation.

Though Olaf provided hilarious commentary as comic relief, any scene that tried to be serious with him in it came off as silly.

Kristoff also had his moment when he sang about being lost without Anna.

It was meant to be portrayed as a funny parody of a boyband music video, but it did not fit in with the scene, which was meant to be sorrowful.

The film overall was done very well and had viewers laughing and tearing up over topics hitting close to home for most teens.

Taking risks, leaving behind your identity, and venturing into the unknown future to discover yourself alludes to a transition period of life, such as going to college.

What to take away from this film is that change is inevitable, and while that may be hard, it is necessary and right for everyone at any point in life.

I went into the theater expecting another disappointing Disney sequel but was happily surprised to watch a well-done film. I give “Frozen II” five Warrior feathers, and it is definitely worth the time and money to go see it with friends or family.
