No classic, this sequel is fun family entertainment.
In 2013, “Frozen” was a happening. In 2019, “Frozen II” is just another animated film released around the holidays. Sure, fans will flock to theaters, and international box office will be reliable. But where the first film became a bonafide worldwide phenomenon, this bland, uneventful sequel does not contain one single standout moment.
After six years, Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven are back, and a threat targets Arendelle. When a mysterious voice reaches out to Elsa (voiced by Idina Menzel), a nearby enchanted forest awakens, breaking the tranquility of their peaceful kingdom. The secure warmth of fires cease, and the ground shakes tremendously, causing the people of Arendelle to flee for their lives, seeking refuge outside the town. To save her realm, Elsa strikes out in search of the source of the voice that seems to be calling for her. Naturally, the headstrong Anna (Kristen Bell) won’t let her go it alone. And that means Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), his loyal reindeer, Sven, and the magical snowman Olaf (Josh Gad) join the worthy cause.
