Frozen 2 was worth the wait

“Frozen”, which came out in 2013, was the second-highest-grossing animated film of all time, leaving viewers with high expectations for the sequel. The long-awaited “Frozen 2” does not disappoint and manages to entertain all ages.

Instead of adding new challenges and conflicts for the characters, the writers instead chose to explore the origins and childhoods of Elsa’s parents. The movie also does not take the first movie that seriously; they made fun of the first movie and the characters several times throughout the plot. 

While many fans of the original have suggested that the writers give Elsa, the main character, a girlfriend, the writers instead stuck to the theme of Elsa and Anna’s relationship as sisters. This ensures that viewers felt like they were watching a continuation of the original instead of a completely different movie franchise which I appreciated.

The movie features a conflict between the people from the Kingdom of Arendelle and the Northuldra people. Both groups were unable to cooperate with each other at first due to past conflicts. Through finding out the truth of the past, though, they are able to unite and work together to save the two nations. This conflict seems all too similar to today’s politically polarized society. The movie teaches children to seek common ground and to understand each other instead of resorting to judgment.

The soundtrack of the movie is very enjoyable. Elsa’s big song, “Into the Unknown,” may not live up to “Let It Go,” but it was still quite good. Olaf’s song, “When I Am Older” talks about feeling like you do not understand everything yet and looking forward to being older, which is relatable to most viewers.

For the first half of the movie, Anna’s character is very annoying; she starts fights with Kristoff many times for no apparent reason.

The end is not predictable, and it wraps up the movie well.

Overall, I really enjoyed the movie. It features many ups and downs for the characters, and it explains all of the questions we were left with from the first movie. The plot was exciting and better than the original. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants a movie that suits multiple age ranges or those who loved “Frozen” when they were younger.
