Dal sito Hogh Light Hollywood:

Box Office Preview: ‘Frozen II’ Tracking for $100M-Plus Thanksgiving Debut

Queen Elsa and Princess Anna are going to have a huge Thanksgiving box office.

Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen II is poised to open to $100 million or more in the U.S., according to early tracking.

Frozen II hits theaters on Nov. 22, the beginning of the lucrative holiday corridor, and six years after the 2013 film turned into a global sensation.

No animated pic outside of summer has ever launched to $100 million or more. And the top weekend opening to date for Disney Animation Studios, excluding Pixar, is $75.1 million for Zootopia, not adjusted for inflation,

The first Frozen opened over Thanksgiving weekend to a record $67.4 million for the three days and a record $93.6 million for the five days. Those records still hold.

Frozen II sees Kristen Bell (Princess Anna) and Idina Menzel (Queen Elsa) reprise their beloved roles. The gang from the original film will embark on a new journey that goes beyond their homeland of Arendelle, and this time Anna will be joining Elsa on the adventure.

Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad and Santino Fontana also return from the first film, while new cast members include Evan Rachel Wood and Sterling K. Brown.

Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee also return as co-directors.

This time, Disney is opting to open Frozen II nationwide the weekend before Thanksgiving. The 2013 title opened everywhere on the Wednesday before the holiday.

Con tutti questi pronostici preventivi si sente odore di gufi... Spero vada bene. Io come ho già detto non andrò a vederlo. Tutti gli anni porto tutti i cugini a vedere i film Disney di Natale (o anche per Coco siamo andati), quest'anno non andremo, in tutto siamo 10 sad.gif il perché è sempre relativo al fatto che il mio piccolo ancora non è il caso di portarlo al cinema.. dal prossimo anno ce lo porterò sicuramente*_* vedrò Raya con lui, che emozione *_*

EDIT. Delle mie 5 cuigine, dell'età di, rispettivamente, 32, 28, 26, 20 e 13 anni, nessuna è entusiasta di Frozen 2. L'effetto "non ci voleva un sequel" le ha colpite. Inoltre tutte e 5 preferiscono assai Rapunzel a Frozen.

Il problema di Frozen è che è stato reso troppo "femminile" nell'immaginario del pubblico. Se avessero messo un ragazzo ad Elsa e l'avessero pubblicizzato come eroe del secondo film secondo noi i ragazzi avrebbero maggior propensione a vederlo. Ma la stessa cosa succederà con Raya così come avvenuto con Oceania. Il pubblico non è scemo
Il problema è che quest'idea della donna indipendente che non ha bisogno di uomini ha alla fine stufato (la stessa Linda Woolverton, sceneggiatrice FEMMINISTA per eccellenza ha di recente detto che è stanca di queste assenze di uomini e del fatto che le storie d'amore non abbiano rilevanza dicendo che una donna può essere forte anche se cerca l'amore e la famiglia).


Segnaliamo un po' di notizie:

* il film durerà 1 ora e 43 minuti.

Ma quelli stan fuori, ma come cavolo faranno a tenere a bada bambini piccoli con un film di 143 minuti?? Sarà pur vero che venti minuti saranno per i titoli di coda (a pensare bene) ma 2 ore sono esagerate.

EDIT: ragazzi ma nella vostra foto è indicato 1h. e 40 minuti.

Scusate , abbiamo scritto 143 minuti quando intendevamo 103, cioè un'ora e 43 minuti (c'è scritto 1h e 40 minuti, invece è 1 ora e 43 minuti). Scusate!

Abbiamo corretto

Un bell'articolo sull'analisi delle due sorelle protagoniste: Anna rappresenterebbe il topos della fiaba, mentre Elsa quello del mito. Interessante, dategli una letta, chissà che le teorie si palesino chiaramente nel finale di questo secondo film.

Da Inside the Magic

Fairy tale vs. myth: Anna and Elsa’s differences make them stronger in “Frozen 2”

If you’ve seen Frozen, you probably know that Queen Elsa and Princess Anna are total opposites. Elsa is Arendelle’s mature and poised snow queen with magical ice powers. Anna is her quirky and adorable younger sister who believes in true love and happy endings — and she doesn’t have magical powers at all.

But even though Anna (Kristin Bell) and Elsa (Idina Menzel) are so different, their similarities allow them to work together and their differences make them even stronger. And after attending an early press day for Frozen 2, Inside the Magic learned that the dichotomy of fairy tale and myth plays a big role in the Frozen sequel (and an even bigger role in Anna and Elsa’s lives).

Anna is pretty much the definition of a fairy tale character. She is optimistic, sees the best in everyone, and truly believes that the hero can always beat the villain. Anna believes in happily ever after — it’s just who she is. It was Anna who saved Elsa in Frozen, and from what we can tell from the Frozen 2 trailers and information we’ve learned so far, Anna might be wanting to save Elsa again in the sequel.

“One of the writers here at this studio had a saying. ‘Fairy tales don’t tell us that dragons don’t exist. Fairy tales tell us that we can slay the dragon,'” said Marc Smith, head of story for Frozen 2. He continued, “That’s Anna! She’s the ultimate optimist; she believes in the happy ending. It was really nice little connection there.”

Anna is a Disney Princess, pretty much through and through. She believes that good is worth fighting for, she has an adorable sidekick in Olaf, and she winds up with her “prince charming” in the form of Kristoff the ice man. But her sister, on the other hand, isn’t like any Disney Princess we had ever met.

Elsa, on the other hand, is a mythic character. She isn’t a fairy tale at all. If Anna’s fairy tale-like persona tells the audience that the villain can be beat, Elsa’s mythic persona conveys the idea that sometimes good doesn’t always win.

Plus, Anna is a human without any superpowers, and Elsa has these magical ice powers that she’s still learning how to control. If the ability to create entire castles out of ice doesn’t sound like a mythical power, we don’t know what does.

Elsa, being the older sister in the family, takes on a lot of responsibility. It’s clear in the second film that she feels called to leave her family in Arendelle behind and doesn’t feel like she belongs in this world when she has so much magic inside her. In continuing the discussion of the fairy tale and myth themes in Frozen 2, Smith shared how the idea of the mythic hero aligns so truly with who Elsa is.

“The mythological hero usually has to take on the weight of the world and to fulfill some sort of fate, or some sort of destiny,” Smith said. “And that really felt like it lined up nicely with Elsa’s story. ‘Why do I have these big, awesome powers of nature, and what am I supposed to do with that?’ And so that was a really pivotal discovery for us, because now we have our two main characters who have world views that are really completely opposite.”

But even though Anna and Elsa clearly differ in their personalities and approaches to life, their differences make them a stronger duo, especially in this second film. Yes, they have opposite worldviews, but they balance each other out. If Elsa didn’t have Anna, she might have stayed forever in her ice castle far away from Arendelle — or maybe that voice that is calling her to the Enchanted Forest in Frozen 2 would have called her sooner. And if Anna didn’t have Elsa, who knows? She could be off married to Hans of the Southern Isles…and we all know how that would turn out.

Anna and Elsa’s love for each other was made very clear in Frozen, but from what we can tell so far, their strength will be brought to the forefront of the story in Frozen 2. “I believe in you Elsa, more than anyone or anything,” Anna tells Elsa in one scene in a recent trailer. The two, along with our other favorite Frozen characters, embark on a remarkable journey in this Disney animated film. And while it looks like their relationship may be tested, we can also tell that their personas as fairy tale and myth will play a huge role in not only their dynamic but in the story as a whole.

We’re excited to find out what’s to come for our fairy tale Disney Princess and mythic Snow Queen. Frozen 2 hits theaters on November 22.

Da Ginger Generation

Frozen 2: Giuliano Sangiorgi dei Negramaro canterà Into the Unknown in italiano?

Che cosa c’entra il cast vocale di Frozen 2 con Giuliano Sangiorgi dei Negramaro? Apparentemente nulla, tuttavia alle conferenze stampa dove sarà presentato il film ci sarà anche lui. Sorprese in vista? Forse sì… il cantante potrebbe infatti interpretare la versione italiana di Into the Unknown nella studio version, quella che in inglese è interpretata dai Panic! at the Disco.

Un ulteriore indizio ce l’ha fornito lo stesso Giuliano qualche giorno fa. Il cantante ha infatti pubblicato sul suo profilo Instagram una foto in occasione del compleanno di sua figlia, per la quale era stata preparata una torta a tema… Frozen!

Nella didascalia della foto pubblicata sul social c’è infatti scritto:

Grazie infinite a @disneyitalia per questa splendida torta che sa tanto di doppia sorpresa 😉

Non ci resta che aspettare di saperne di più e soprattutto di conoscere una news ufficiale relativa alla colonna sonora italiana che, con tutta probabilità, verrà rilasciata in concomitanza con l’uscita del film nelle sale cinematografiche. [...]

Intervista a Jennifer Lee:

WITH …

Jennifer Lee, Queen of the ‘Frozen’ Franchise


Strengthening Disney’s historically not-so-great sisterhood.

By Maureen Dowd
Nov. 7, 2019

BURBANK, Calif. — For decades, Disney hypnotized us into thinking that someday our prince would come. We would get a wake-up kiss, don the glass slipper, let down our locks so he could clamber up the tower and rescue us. True love would break the spell, chase away the bad spirits.

Sometimes, the wait seemed endless.

As Charlotte once keened on “Sex and the City,” “I’ve been dating since I was 15. I’m exhausted. Where is he?”

So how fitting that the Disney hot shot who is finally helping dismantle the myth of the white knight is a bright woman.

With “Frozen” in 2013, Jennifer Lee and her writing and directing partner, Chris Buck, changed the formula so that the true love saving Princess Elsa from her icy exile comes not from a prince but from her younger sister, Anna.

The writers also avoided the usual malevolent female characters, like menacing matriarchs and tormenting stepsisters. In “Frozen 2,” premiering this week in Hollywood, female self-reliance and sisterly love is once more the theme.

In “The Snow Queen," the original shambolic Hans Christian Andersen saga that inspired “Frozen,” the queen was an older, sexy, diabolical diva, keeping a boy captive.

Rather than the usual fight between good and evil, Ms. Lee says, she played up the tension between fear (Elsa) and love (Anna), cognizant of the fact while they were working on the first “Frozen,” “you were really seeing an escalation — and exploitation — of fear in the world and it was overwhelming.”

She says that the classic Disney fairy tale model was taken for granted for generations, so many women just automatically strove for it. “I grew up in the ’70s and had a mom that was the single mom and very independent, so that wasn’t the life I was living,” Ms. Lee, 48, recalls at Walt Disney Animation Studio, the kingdom she now runs as chief creative officer. Mickey’s blue sorcerer’s hat sits atop the building.

“And then by the time I got here, we were all talking about how that’s not the life we lived, and about creating characters that we could relate to. Fairy tales are timeless, but they’re not 100 percent timeless.”

We talk in a writers’ room filled with snacks and storyboards for their latest project, “Raya and the Last Dragon.” Ms. Lee is often in jeans but today she is wearing a long royal blue Theory jacket and Christian Louboutin white ankle boot stilettoes that have “Love” scrawled on the side and silver spikes sprinkled on the toes.

“I call these my ‘compassion and armor,’” she says, with her radiant smile, noting that she splurged on them when she was nervous about “Frozen 2.”

Ms. Lee isn’t interested in any more Prince Charming characters who simply look good and show up at the right time. She long ago grew weary of Hollywood movies where the female characters were there either for a sexual reason or to reflect what’s at stake for the male characters. She is more inspired by the snappy back and forth of saucy women and the men who enjoy them on Turner Classic Movies.

“I always go back to when I saw ‘His Girl Friday’ for the first time, because the relationship was incredible, with the wonderful mess of life,” she says.

I ask her about the Twitter campaigns for Elsa to be gay.

Ms. Lee says that early on, she put both characters through intense Myers-Briggs personality tests. “It really came out that Elsa is not ready for a relationship,” she says.

Breaking the Ice

While she is blowing up sexist stereotypes in fairy tales, Ms. Lee is also busting up sexist stereotypes about female directors, such as lingering fears that they can’t be trusted with big budgets or tell sweeping heroic stories.

With “Frozen,” Ms. Lee was the first woman to direct a Disney animated feature film. This is particularly remarkable since she was not a trained animator and had only ventured out to Hollywood a couple of years before, as she turned 40, the age when many people in the dream factory start lying about how old they are.

She started her career in New York, working at Random House as an art director in both reference and audiobooks. At 30, she decided to take a gamble and pursue her dream of a career in movies, going back to school to get an M.F.A. in film at Columbia University.

There she met a fellow student named Phil Johnston, who asked her to come to Disney in 2011 for what was meant to be eight weeks to work on an animated film called “Wreck-It Ralph.”

Separated from her husband at the time, she asked her mother to move temporarily to Los Angeles to help take care of her daughter, and eventually she persuaded the father of her daughter to move to California as well.

Without even realizing it, the 5-foot-3 Ms. Lee found herself standing up at meetings with the Disney boys’ club to make her voice heard. It soon became clear that she is a strong storyteller who is good at “killing your darlings’’: cutting narrative fat.

With Cinderella panache and a sunny outlook, Ms. Lee simply refused to accept that she had moved to a town where the odds were against her. And with her very first efforts, she proved why the paucity of women directors in Hollywood is a cruel absurdity.

“Frozen” was the highest-grossing animated film until it was surpassed by the 2019 remake of “The Lion King,” and Ms. Lee became the first woman to direct a film that earned over a billion dollars. Blond Elsa and redheaded Anna became such an obsession with girls and boys that Ms. Lee went from accepting thanks to saying “I’m sorry” to irritated parents when they couldn’t escape the “Frozen” songs and merchandising.

The movie’s success propelled Ms. Lee’s ascension at Disney, where she was the first woman put in charge of Walt Disney Animation Studios, replacing her mentor John Lasseter, the brilliant but mercurial animator who ran afoul of #MeToo codes of conduct and resigned last year.

Bob Iger, who had to seek Mr. Lasseter’s approval before Disney could buy Pixar from Steve Jobs, split the Lasseter fief in two and named Pete Docter to run Pixar. Even though Mr. Docter had been at Pixar for 30 years, had directed more films and won more Academy Awards than Ms. Lee had, Mr. Iger lifted the woman to equal compensation with the man.

In the last few months, Ms. Lee has been getting up in the wee hours to juggle the three jobs of writing, directing and running the studio, as she and Mr. Buck prepare for the release of “Frozen 2” on Nov. 22.

Disney was a touchstone for Ms. Lee as she grew up. When she was 6, her father, Saverio Rebecchi, gave her a Disney how-to-draw book. Later, she said, “Cinderella” got her through a tough time after her mother and father got divorced and she and her sister moved with their mother to East Providence, R.I.

Her mother, Linda, is her hero; she was a psychiatric nurse who worked two jobs to support her girls and went back to school in her 40s to get a master’s degree so she could also teach English at the community college at night. As a homage, Jennifer took her mother’s maiden name, Lee, to use professionally.


“When I was in middle school, I was very severely bullied,” Ms. Lee says. “I had about three very, very difficult years and by then I had the VHS of ‘Cinderella.’ So I’d play it and it was watching her be bullied and her perseverance and that she’s going to escape it, just by being true to herself and being a good person. I wasn’t really equating it to the prince so much. You start to believe the bullies and you believe the Kool-Aid and that you are all these horrible things.

“I was the new kid, and I just was very vulnerable. I remember getting chubby right around then. I think if, back then, they diagnosed A.D.H.D. the way they do now, there’s no doubt I had it. I mean, my daughter has it. She had a couple rough years with bullies as well. I now completely understand it. I was 100 percent that. I was always a mess. Stains on my clothes. I had knots in my hair. I was an easy target. There was physical shoving. Extreme bullying goes to the heart of what is your weakest spot. It makes you live in your head. So I had sagas going in my head and I just escaped reality.”

Behind her desk at Disney hang the original pencil drawings from the 1950 movie, showing Cinderella’s dress transformation.

Working on “Frozen,” Ms. Lee was able to draw on the relationship with her own sister, Amy, three years older and now an English teacher in New York.

“I was the wild, little daydreaming mess, a Tasmanian devil, and she was always the responsible one, a straight-A student,” says Ms. Lee, who identifies with Kristen Bell’s clear-as-a-bell Anna, not Idina Menzel’s mysterious Elsa.

She drew closer to her sister after tragedy. On the first day of college Ms. Lee fell for a charismatic student named Jason. “He was very larger than life, a risk taker, pushing it to the limit,” she says. “I was always so shocked that he liked me. I was still struggling, seeing myself from the point of view of the bullies. He was just effervescent and I was much shyer and he kind of brought me out of my shell. As my mother used to say, ‘He was the sun and I was the moon.’”

In the middle of the night, Ms. Lee, who was back in Rhode Island cat-sitting for her mother, got a call. Jason and his best friend had been out in a canoe in Maine. “The lake could get tumultuous, and the canoe flipped and they tried to swim to shore,” she says. “Jason’s friend made it, but Jason didn’t. He got hypothermia and he fell asleep.

“Definitely when Jason died, everything changed. I was full of fear in many ways because the vulnerability of life was huge. So I had phobias for a while. I still am afraid of flying. The trauma of it kicks in and doesn’t let go.”

Ms. Lee continues to explore the nature of fear in “Frozen 2.” She studied Nordic myths and went on a research trip to Norway, Iceland and Finland, getting plot epiphanies during tours of volcanoes, forests, waterfalls and glaciers about the back story of how Elsa got her magical icy powers and why the girls’ parents died in a shipwreck.


Ms. Lee learned more about the myth of the Nokk, a mystical water spirit that takes on the form of a horse, and they turned it into a beautiful, eerie image in the movie.

She is also inspired by Hayao Miyazaki, the legendary animator of such Japanese films as “Spirited Away” and “My Neighbor Totoro.” She says that after her separation, when she was living in New York with her daughter, she spent the little money she had on a Swedish poster of Totoro for her daughter’s room, believing the spirit would protect them.

Princes Aren’t Perfect

I first interviewed Ms. Lee in 2015 for a New York Times Magazine article on the dearth of female directors. Many of the women I interviewed were sad, angry and bitter about the way they were treated and the work they lost out on. But Ms. Lee was an anomaly, happy and positive about her future.

Everything has changed in Hollywood since then. Or has it?

When I wrote that article, the statistics were outrageous. Women represented a measly 1.9 percent of directors of the top-100-grossing films. Things aren’t much better now. Female directors represent only 4 percent of those on top films, buoyed by Ms. Lee; Patty Jenkins, who directed “Wonder Woman;” Anna Boden, a director of “Captain Marvel;” Vicky Jenson, who directed “Shrek;” and Betty Thomas, who directed “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel.”

If Greta Gerwig, who was nominated last year for an Oscar for directing “Lady Bird,” is nominated for this year’s much buzzed-about “Little Women," she will be the only woman nominated twice in that category.

There have been just four other female directing nominees: Lina Wertmuller, Kathryn Bigelow (who won), Sofia Coppola and Jane Campion. The only woman to have won a Golden Globe for directing is Barbra Streisand, and that was in 1984 for “Yentl.”

There is heightened awareness of the issue now, however, thanks to #MeToo and #TimesUp. “I remember when Geena Davis came here nine years ago and spoke,” Ms. Lee says about the actress who became an activist, urging studios to practice gender equity in their films. “Some of the men, other creatives, were mocking her. And they were mocking her because they were threatened by her. And I was very upset, but I couldn’t say anything then.

“The guys I work with now, they do want that change because they see it makes our films better. It challenges the storytelling, makes the days richer.”

She says Disney now has two new female directors in the animation studio. “When you’ve got three women in the room, it’s a different conversation. Talent knows no gender. It knows no race.”

When we talked four years ago, Ms. Lee praised Mr. Lasseter, who was then the animation boss, and talked about the importance of men supporting women as well as women supporting women. I asked how his resignation for “missteps,” unwanted touching and kissing, had affected her.

Did he ever ask her to help save him?

“No," she says. Referring to the period where he was already on a “sabbatical” and being investigated by the mouse house, she added: “John was very supportive when we were opening ‘Frozen’ on Broadway. He sent us all texts congratulating us. He has not asked anything of any of us.

“He was a great mentor to me and it was purely a working relationship, and I 100 percent knew that he believed in my talent. I was certainly in groups where we would all be in a room and he’d hug us all. Men too. ‘John was affectionate.’ That’s what we’d say.

“He had talked to both Pete and I about succession, so we knew we had his support. There were moments it was scary, because I think he only saw one screening of ‘Frozen 2’ and he had been a real partner on the first film.” Sometimes, she said, the operating ethos after his departure was “What would John say?”

How should women navigate in the workplace when a man is a valuable mentor but is also doing things some women find inappropriate?

“I always say I can’t speak for other women, so you have to respect it,’’ she says. “Because what feels fun or isn’t even noticeable for one is traumatic for another. But there in and of itself is the dialogue we should be having.”

In January, there was a backlash when Mr. Lasseter got the top job at Skydance Animation. I wondered if she thought he should have that job.

“I don’t think it’s fair to ask me,” she says. “Because for those of us who work very closely, we all have very different relationships. So for me, I didn’t comment on it.” She says that, like many people, she wrestles with questions about whether there is a way back for some people, and who deserves another chance.

If you check Ms. Lee’s Instagram, you will see her with her teenage daughter, Agatha, and her boyfriend, Alfred Molina. Mr. Molina, an acclaimed British actor, is the voice of the father of Elsa and Anna in “Frozen 2.”

(In recent years, Mr. Molina has spoken about the pain of seeing his wife suffer from a very advanced stage of Alzheimer’s. He had said that he had looked after her for years at home but that eventually, she needed more specialized care.)

Ms. Lee calls Mr. Molina “Fred,” and they look very happy together. She says that they prefer to keep their relationship private, but allows: “I just feel very lucky because I’m, you know, 48 years old and I’m very happy in my family life and he’s very caring and very good to my daughter. And so I feel lucky.”

Just as a fairy tale might end, the couple shares a house in the mountains outside of Burbank.

“A little house,” Ms. Lee said. “But a big view.”

[One more round around the ice, shall we?]

Confirm or Deny

Maureen Dowd: You agree with Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola that Marvel movies are tedious.

Jennifer Lee: Deny. Actually, when I heard about it, it made me sad because I just said, “Do we need any more meanspiritedness in this world right now?” There’s no place for that, in my opinion. I just didn’t think it was necessary.


You are so afraid of flying that before you take off you have a drink, talk in the voice that you use with your cat, and ask everyone around you to shield you with protective white light.

Confirm.

You’re sick of metaphors about how you bring the heat and melt the glass ceiling.

Yes, I am. I will love the day we don’t have to have those.

J. D. Salinger’s “Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour: An Introduction” is one of your favorite books.

True. I didn’t respond to “Catcher in the Rye,” believe it or not. I love Salinger’s line about writing, “Were most of your stars out?”

When there is a scene with choreography in your films, you dance it out for the animators.

Confirm.

When you were stressed out last summer, you would watch a live cam of a baby albatross growing up in New Zealand.

Confirm.

You hate falling asleep.

Confirm.

You play the flute.

Confirm.

Disney sneaks subliminal messages into its movies.

There is one in “Frozen,” and no one has figured it out. It’s a little more buried than subliminal. It’s pretty funny.

The studio brought in a live reindeer to inspire the animators on “Frozen.”

True. Sage. She lost her antlers and it was bloody and gross but she was fine because I guess that’s normal.

You actually hate cold weather and the winter.

Deny.

You love Bono so much, you rooted for him at the Oscars for Best Original Song against the “Frozen” composers, Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.

I was conflicted, I will say. But I love Bobby and Kristen more because I actually know them as people and it was “Frozen.” But I do love Bono, always and forever.

You love sci-fi.

Confirm. “Star Wars” was the first movie I ever saw in a theater. My first sci-fi book was “A Wrinkle in Time.” Then I was a big fan of Philip K. Dick, like “Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said” and “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”

Of course, because of that, I loved “Blade Runner.” Directing a sci-fi film is a dream. Animated sci-fi is just as fantastic, maybe it could be even more fantastical. We have some projects in development that have some sci-fi elements to them, so I’m happy.

You still miss New York.

Every day. I still say “I’m going home” when I go to New York. It will always be home. I miss the anonymity of New York. You walk the street and you’re everyone and no one. Just walking in Central Park endlessly. We’ll end up there someday and somehow. I want to grow old there.

Ieri c'è stata l'anteprima del film che ha riscosso un enorme successo.
L'embargo sul film termina il 14 novembre alle ore 18.

Prime reazioni:

Skyler Shuler:
I can’t believe I am saying this, but FROZEN 2 is better than its predecessor. Darker, a little more mature, but still an excellent film for families, the songs believe it or not are catchier, so parents beware. SEE THIS MOVIE! #Frozen2

Patrick Dougall:
I’m SOOO emo! #Frozen2 was PERFECT!!! I LITERALLY went thru every emotion possible in this film!!! Oh man! I’m going to be seeing this movie so many times!!!! @DisneyFrozen 🍂❄🍂❄🍂❄🍂

Alisha Grauso:
#Frozen2 is breathtakingly beautiful and leans in on empowerment for its characters. I cried at least 3 times. From the story to the last thread on Elsa's dress, the care and love put into it shows. And, good news, every one of Team Elsa gets at least one solo this time around.

Drew Taylor:
Loved #Frozen2. It’s a darker, more complex and more emotionally mature story, continuing everything you love about the first movie and upping the ante while maintaining the intimacy of the original. Gorgeous animation, wonderful new characters and (FINALLY) a Kristoff song! ❄

Clayton Davis:
#Frozen2 embarks as not just an evolution of its characters, but it sincerely acknowledges that it's fanbase has grown over the last 6 years, and they have new things to learn in a changing world. Songs are plentiful. Beautiful shots at times. It was something I REALLY needed.

Francis Dominic:
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! FROZEN 2 IS ACTUALLY THE PERFECT SEQUEL! The magic, the depth, the healing from the TRAUMA! I couldn’t name a better Disney Sequel. You shouldn’t walk to see #Frozen2, YOU SHOULD RUN! Bravo, Disney. Thanks for making me UGLY cry in theaters.




Il film sembra più dark e maturo rispetto al primo e tiene conto che sono passati 6 anni dall'uscita del primo capitolo così pare hanno voluto dare un registro più adulto al film.
