Parents, prepare yourselves. Just when you finally stopped hearing any Frozen tunes, Disney smacks you in the face with another batch of them. It's been a long six years of waiting, but now we finally have a sequel to Frozen.

Those who are waiting for another magical Frozen adventure, then you're in luck. The magic is strong not just for Elsa, but for the entire movie. Between the familiarity of our characters and the stunning visuals, we instantly get transported back into the world of Arendelle. We see that despite time passing, things are about the same as they were at the end of the first movie. To some, that's okay with them. But for others, not so much because they find it difficult to change due to the fear of the unknown. This theme is shown well through the individuality of sisters Elsa and Anna, but not so much for Kristoff and Olaf. Despite their individual arcs working in different ways. there is still the same chemistry between them all that we loved back in the first one.

As we learn more about Elsa and Anna as people, we also get to follow along with them as they explore their family's past and the world they live in. While it could end up being predictable for adults as Elsa and Anna solve the questions they have, you can't deny that kids will love following along with them. Between having a darker tone and an underlying mystery story, kids will probably like seeing an animated movie that tries to act more "mature."

Parents beware, the songs here are very good and could catch on quick with your children. The plus side is none of them will top Let It Go, but there will be plenty of them that will end up on repeat. But really, the majority of the songs are very good, and help continue the story in an organic way.

The biggest difference between this and the previous movie is the animation. Frozen's animation is still very good, but it is definitely taken to the next level here. The animation here looks more realistic than the original movie did, with many beautiful scenes one after the other. No matter your age, you will be mesmerized by how incredible the animation looks in Frozen 2.

What it boils down to is that Frozen 2 is a satisfying sequel to the first movie. While the story may not be as on par as the original, it still brings that same magic and entertainment that reminds you back to when you saw Frozen for the first time.
