Frozen 2 is one of those rare sequels that lives up to the first film. The crew and cast both worked hard to give us a great story. Unlike a lot of other sequels, Frozen 2 wasn't a cash-grab or a cop out. It wasn't rushed or just thrown together for fan service. You could tell a lot of care and devotion was poured into the film, and that's probably the most magical element of all.

The film follows Elsa, who is hearing something call to her. She, Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven all travel north together to an enchanted forest that their father had once told them about. There, they discover a dark secret that will change Elsa and Anna's lives forever.

There's only a couple things to nitpick about with this film and both of them have to do with the music. First, the biggest issue was Kristoff's "Lost in the Woods" song. While the parodical element behind the scene was hilarious, it absolutely destroyed the song's emotional output. Here, Kristoff's belting out how lost he is without Anna, but seeing him go between dancing like a 90s boy band to performing a capella with a bunch of reindeer in a vision, the audience was too busy laughing to appreciate the emotional depth of the song. Yeah, go ahead and make the argument that it's a kid's film. Just saying, you won't see Olaf do that and he's intentionally comical. Second, I loved the music but nothing hit me as timeless like "Let It Go". All of the musical numbers were dependent on the film, meaning you can't have one without the other. "Let It Go" was a song that you could listen to again and again and derive all kinds of meaning from it. While the songs in the film did have a lot of depth and meaning, I wish we had gotten something a little more powerful.

I absolutely loved the story. The stakes were high and ever-present and the story was deep and heartfelt. It was smart enough for adults and simple enough for kids. The way it was written was brilliant and didn't disappoint.

Disney's animations have a way of transporting you to another world as soon as the lights dim and never let you go until the credits roll. Frozen 2 was no exception. I found myself lost in the film, whisked away by Disney's magic. Even at nearly 30 years old, Disney's still my home away from home.

In conclusion, definitely go see this film. You'll love it, your kids will love it, and you'll be able to laugh and forget about your problems for an hour and a half. I give the film a 3.5 out of 4.
