Many mothers, especially those who have daughters, are still well aware of the song “Let It Go” which became the original soundtrack of “Frozen”. Understandably, the film production of Walt Disney Animation Studios which was released in 2013 was indeed very successful and liked by many children. No wonder the “Frozen 2” that is available on 123 movies was awaited by many children and parents.
However, many people are also worried because news had circulated that said Disney adds more “adult’ nuances in characters in the film Frozen 2! Is that right or not? We deliberately watched the movie Frozen 2 on the first day, to make a review of the eyes of parents.
Directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, Frozen 2 again raised the story of sisters from the Kingdom of Arendelle, Elsa (voiced by Idina Menzel) and Anna (Kristen Bell). The difference this time, the two are involved in a more mysterious and thrilling adventure in a Magic Forest in the northern region of their kingdom.
A magical voice, dragging Elsa there and the beginning of a variety of strange events that they had never imagined before. Although initially hesitant, Elsa believes that all the oddities that occur will be revealed and resolved if she follows the sound to the source.
Of course, Anna won’t let Elsa go alone. Together with Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), Sven and Olaf (Josh Gad) they are determined to unravel all mysteries together, correcting the mistakes that their ancestors might have done while saving Arendelle.
Compared to the first film, Frozen 2 has a more complicated plot and might make it more difficult for children to understand, especially for children who are still small.
For example, about how Elsa gained magical power, conversations about various types of spirits, to some parables that are used to unravel the mystery. Conflict in the film is not just a matter of the relationship between her and her sister, but also the history of their ancestors and Elsa’s identity. In addition, there are quite a lot of scenes that go ‘back and forth’. Because in this film, memories and past events are often displayed through Elsa’s magic power. Including the mystery of death and the identity of her parents.
That’s why Frozen 2 feels more ‘mature’ than in the first film. The nuances throughout the film are even darker. Awesome in terms of visuals, but it’s often gripping the feelings of the audiences.
Luckily there is Olaf, who always entertains the audiences with his funny behavior. In the midst of tension in the face of strange things in the Enchanted Forest, Olaf’s presence can always break the ice. You may also see Kristof’s efforts throughout the film to propose Anna, with the help of Sven, a loyal deer. Although indeed, this adds a sense of ‘maturity’ in the film Frozen 2.
