Welcome to Magically Marley’s Frozen 2 Review! Please STOP here if you haven’t seen the movie because this WILL contain spoilers! I finally went to see the movie on Monday and can’t wait to share what I thought about it! Find below ten things I loved (or didn’t) about Frozen 2!

Love

I loved the songs. Some are complaining they were a bit too Broadway or dark but I actually enjoyed them! I had trouble listening to them in the car prior to seeing the movie. Once I saw the movie and the songs fit, I truly enjoyed them. They are a bit Broadway, but I feel like they had to be DIFFERENT from the first movie for them to stand out and in this sequel, it works. I am not sure which song is my favorite but my top three are: When I’m Older, Some Things Never Change, and Into the Unknown.

Love

I loved the animation and the outfit changes for this movie. I was a little upset that Walt Disney World rolled out the outfits early (hello, spoiler) but they are so, so pretty! The animation is so good it almost could pass as a Pixar movie. Total top notch!

Didn’t Love

So I actually found Kristoff’s song to be a bit overly cheesy and I kind of couldn’t wait for it to end. HOWEVER, I do love that he did express his feelings and I understand the point of the song.

Love

Kristoff. Since we are talking about Kristoff’s cheesy love song, I do love the evolution of his character. The fact that he is not your typical Prince that kisses ass, or overshadows his Princess is a job well done for Disney. PLEASE ask me what I need instead of doing it for me.

Didn’t Love

BRUNI. So this is kind of a love/didn’t love. I loved Brunni and thought he was going to be a big deal in the movie and he was barely even there! This seemed like kind of a waste. I wish we would have seen more of his character and his purpose.

Love

The parent plot line. I actually loved that they revisited the parents and we found answers to what happened to them and how they got there. I would have been a little upset if all they did was crash on a boat in the sea and die. I’m thankful for this evolution.

Love

Elsa’s evolution. Some people will disagree here but I LIKED her evolution as a character. I thought it was nice that Disney had a Queen go against the mold and step down because it didn’t make her happy. In the older classic Disney movies it would have been unheard of if a Princess or Queen didn’t fulfill her role. In this sequel Elsa realizes that she’s not meant to be where she’s been and she sets herself free.

Didn’t Love

Didn’t love but loved: Anna. I’m torn with Anna because I love her and I loved that she could face how she felt and they really exposed her emotions. I did not love that she is always second best to Elsa. I know the movie is Frozen and it’s about the “Ice Queen” however Anna is the true Queen and is officially now the queen and I wish we saw more development to her character.

Love

Olaf. Olaf is the movie. Josh Gad deserves all the recognition for this movie because he truly is the best. I can’t say enough good things about Olaf. The way they developed him into more of a person than a snowman sidekick really hit home. I relate Olaf to a small child the way he discovers not everything is okay all the time and there are other emotions other than upbeat and happy and it was brilliant.

Love

The future set up. Reverting back to number 9 and my dislike for Anna. I feel like the set up for Frozen 3 might not even be Frozen 3. I could see them retiring Elsa and running with a movie solely based on Anna and Kristoff. It just better have Olaf.

I hope you enjoyed Magically Marley’s Frozen 2 Review! I really feel like this was a great sequel. Even with my few dislikes overall I thoroughly enjoyed it and would see it again. Sound off in the comments below what you thought about it!
