Frozen released in 2013 was surprisingly an awesome film and also went to gain so much praise from the audience. The praise made it earn more than Billion dollar at Global box office and since then the sequel kept us all excited. Frozen sequel had to make some promises of living upto the prequel in terms of Story, Presentation, Visuals and most importantly connect with the audience. Here comes Frozen 2 fulfilling all the promises that Frozen sequel have made or should have made.
Frozen 2 takes forward the story of 2 sisters Anna and Elas from the predecessor. Anna and Elsa recall their Father and Mother story from childhood and are eager to find the truth from the past. Therefore Anna (Kristen Bell), Elsa (Idina Menzel), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), Olaf (Josh Gad) and Sven leave Arendelle to travel to an ancient, autumn-bound forest of an enchanted land. They set out to find the origin of Elsa’s powers in order to save their kingdom. In this adventurous ride there are a lot of funny moments, twists, emotions, curiosity and then there is a Super happy ending.
The narrative of Frozen 2 is short, sweet and simple. May be that’s the reason it looked slightly less than what people are expecting from the Frozen sequel. Ultimately the same thing makes it Pacy and engaging as well, hence there should not be any complaints of falling short to the mark unless the expectations are damn too high. Visually Frozen is truly Phenomenal. Couple of sequences such as Climax scene and that Sea Crossing scene takes it even higher. Screenplay is terrifically engaging with a runtime of around 100 minutes and that never leave you with a single boring moment. The height of expectations can never have a limit when it comes to computer animated films because the scope is unlimited in this fictional world with no real characters attached to it, hence Frozen 2 might look slightly less than whatever it could have been. But the directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee delivers a promising sequel despite all this burden. They get the execution right with their vision whether it is storytelling, connect or VFX.
Cinespeaks Verdict– To round it off, Frozen 2 is a beautiful sequel to a beautiful film which we saw 6 years ago. The gap was quite long yet it doesn’t fail to please you. Frozen 2 has everything in right manners whatever any good animated film should have. Perfect story, a new world, lovable characters, phenomenon visuals, strong bonding between characters, emotions and then a happy ending, Frozen 2 has got all these things in one watch for you and your family. Talking about the Box Office, this one looks another Bonafide blockbuster for Disney. Go and Freeze yourself for gorgeous 100 minutes.
