FROZEN II (in theaters)
All may be well in Arendelle, but Princess Elsa keeps hearing a mystical voice coming from somewhere beyond the castle. She believes it may be coming from the magical forest she and Anna once heard about from their father. When their parents were younger, a dark mist had covered the magical forest locking out anyone who would enter. Elsa continues to be intrigued and can’t let this voice go. She, along with Anna, Olaf, Kristoff, and Sven venture into the unknown to learn more about this forest that’s guided by the four elements: Earth, air, fire, and water. It’s a journey to learn about their ancestors, their family history, and bridge a gap to make Arendelle safe again
Is It Worth Your Trip to the Movies? Another successful sequel for Disney, even if it doesn’t quite surpass the first film.
