This movie has been anticipated for six years by people (arguably) of every age group. I remember seeing Frozen in the theater with my grandma and two little cousins when I was ten years old, and I loved it. Now that I am sixteen and got to see Queen Elsa in the theater once again, I was overjoyed. Actually, overjoyed is an understatement. The hype for this movie, at least in my eyes, is unmatched. 

The film is absolutely incredible, a definite 10/10 from me and my friend that I saw it with. We both left the theater frantically wiping tears from our cheeks; it just hit that hard. I cried tears of joy, sadness, and satisfaction. I don’t care how old you are or the size of your ego, if you saw Frozen, you have to see Frozen 2. You have to, those are the rules. Plus, the movie is totally worth it. 

The plot is everything I could’ve hoped for and more. The animations were breathtaking. It is really nice and refreshing to get away from the different shades of blue and white that took over Frozen and see beautiful varieties of fall colors and so much more. The characters are amazing as well, both returning characters and newly introduced. Everything was just perfect. 

The storyline allowed a lot of plot holes to be filled, which is really nice for fans. The first movie didn’t pay much attention, if any at all, to the king and queen, while in Frozen 2, they are almost the primary focus. It’s really nice to get some closure on what happened before Anna and Elsa and to get a glimpse of Arendelle before Frozen. I love seeing the king and queen get the screen time they deserve, and the queen even getting a couple of songs!

With that being said, the new soundtrack is also amazing. I am not afraid to admit, I hoped for a bit more after seeing the first Frozen, but the music was still good. The songs were more dramatic and slow, which will probably make it a bit harder for children to bop to, but nonetheless, still good music. 

Overall, the movie is really, really good. If you haven’t seen it or don’t plan to, you absolutely have to. And if you’re one of those people that possess too much pride to see a Disney movie, let it go.
