The much anticipated sequel to Disney’s 2013 Frozen does not disappoint! It is visually stunning, funny and brings back all the magic of the original as Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Kristoff and Sven embark on a journey to an enchanted forest. However this is a much more intense, darker and complicated storyline then the first movie. Younger kids may find some parts scary and difficult. There are fun and catchy new songs, including a solo by Kristoff sure to delight any fan of the 80’s power ballad! There are lots of great conversation starters from this movie, particularly for older kids/tweens/teens, including identity and purpose, grief and loss, and exploitation of Indigenous people.
