Story of the Frozen 2

By adding some aesthetically pleasing songs, stunning visuals and Christophe Beck’s outstanding music, you have a complete entertainment package to keep both young and old happy.

The continuation to Frozen takes the story forward of two sisters Elsa (voiced by Idina Menzel) and Anna (voiced by Kristen Bell), who break through into the ‘restricted’ Enchanted Forest after things go twisted in their Kingdom. It is after they meet the tribesmen and tribeswomen that they realize there is more to know about the history of the people from Arendelle and Northuldra.

The Northuldrans living inside in the magical mountain can’t go out while people of Arendelle are limited from coming in, but Elsa managed to do that for some reason. It is for that very reason that she decides to solve the unknown, without anyone’s help, be it her sister Anna or friends Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), Olaf (Josh Gad) and Sven.

The film’s most striking scenes occur after Elsa and Anna have gone in different directions, with Anna finding herself stuck with Olaf and Elsa following the strange siren voice that only she can hear. What they find at the end of the journeys is too big a twist for the audience and changes the narrative completely. And yes, the fiery frog and the magnificent water horse that befriend Elsa help her find the answers she is looking for, but not before disturbing her with their wild acts.

Songs of the Movie Frozen 2

The best part about Frozen 2 is the fact that all the songs are included in the screenplay, giving space to both dialogues and songs at the same time. Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez continue to impress with their pleased, bittersweet, longing and convincing numbers. While Menzel’s Into the Unknown is this year’s Let It Go, other songs like Some Things Never Change, the Next Right Thing, Lost In the Woods and All is Found complement the narrative in their own way. They are neither filmy songs nor dramatic ones but without them, the story might not feel magical.

Of course, there is Olaf’s comedy, Kristoff impatience and the venturing into the unknown that keeps the spectators on their seats, methodically entertained. Unlike the first film where all the characters were introduced and their distinctiveness exposed, this one has an improvement of awareness with the audience. It may not be a story of one sister searching for the other, but two sisters fulfilling their promises to each other – that is to preserve themselves and their kingdom.
