Frozen 2 is the sequel of the surprise success first film “Frozen”, this finds Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Sven and Olaf into venturing to an ancient enchanted forest in order to find the origin of Elsa’s magic, save the Kingdom of Arendelle and to lift up a primordial spell that entrapped people inside of it.

Nobody expected the level of box-office hit Frozen has had and despite everyone going gaga over “Let it Go” and “Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?” the story behind the first film exceeds the typical princess story that we’ve been used to. So, the anticipation for the sequel is quite high since it’ll be hard to topple the achievement the first one ever did.

And the film did not fail to deliver, there are majestic scenes and breathtaking views with its top of the line animation. Idina Menzel (Elsa), Kristen Bell (Anna),  Josh Gad (Olaf), Jonathan Groff (Kristoff) and the addition of Evan Rachel Wood (Queen Iduna) created this wonderful ensemble of voice that showed our fellow Filipino composers, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez still got the magic by producing this topnotch songs in the official film soundtrack and musical performances in the film. However, story-wise the sequel lackluster compared to the first one especially the choices made on the final act that seems questionable. Development on certain characters wasn’t pursued to give more time to a more comedic character to sing about making sense about the changes in life. The crux of the film lies between the relationship between Anna and Elsa, and their sisterly love they had since childhood was greatly expounded on the film.

Given these points, Frozen 2 exceeded expectations on its visual and animated prowess, well-written and catchy songs, breathtaking scenery but fell flat on the story that might left some fans with unanswered questions.

Frozen 2 is produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios, directed by Frozen’s returning head Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee.

Showing in Philippine cinemas November 20.
