Even six years after its release, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen never stopped being a magical phenomenon as it continued on to thrive with its animated short Frozen Fever and its made-for-TV special Olaf’s Frozen Adventure. While both were fun expansions on the franchise, they weren’t really the deep dives into the original film’s characters or mythology that we would expect to see. Though Frozen 2 is not as narratively strong as the first, it is a rare Disney-animated musical sequel that is still a force to be reckoned with because of its emphasis on character development and continuing to echo the themes of female empowerment, while pushing the boundaries in its music and visuals. My full review of Frozen 2 here below.
Just when you thought Anna (Kristen Bell) and Elsa (Idina Menzel) found their happily ever after, the two sisters, along with with their friends, Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and Olaf (Josh Gad), as well as the rest of the kingdom of Arendell are forced to flee after their queen loses control of her powers. Our heroes’ latest adventure isn’t just some short or made-for-tv special. It’s an actual feature-length sequel. Frozen 2 will see the group embark on a quest into a mythical forest where they will discover the answers to why Elsa has her powers. Oh, and expect a few silly things, some songs, and, of course, danger. Check out the trailer here below.
Back in 1985, Richard Donner, Steven Spielberg, and Chris Columbus created a tale of a bunch of outcast kids searching for buried pirate treasure. It doesn’t necessarily sound like a classic. But to those of Generations X and Y, the adventures of Mikey, Mouth, Data, Chunk, and Sloth are those of legends. This past weekend, Sunday to be precise, The Goonies celebrated its 30th birthday.
