FILM REVIEW | Frozen 2

It's been six long years since parents the world over were subjected to countless replays of their children's new favourite Disney movie: Frozen.

In that time, the Oscar-winning song Let It Go has been played approximately 42 gazillion times.

The Frozen fever has now been renewed with the release of the highly-anticipated sequel Frozen 2.

Parents will be thrilled to know that, even though there are a number of toe-tappers on the soundtrack, none of the songs in the new film are insanely catchy like Let It Go.

Frozen 2 sees our favourite crew of Anna (Kristen Bell), Elsa (Idina Menzel), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), Olaf (Josh Gad) and Sven (Jonathan Groff) enjoying a happy life three years after the events of the first film.

Anna and Elsa have patched up their sisterly divide, Olaf is enjoying Elsa's knew powers which prevent him from melting, Kristoff is preparing to propose to Anna and Sven continues to be a happy, wise reindeer.

Return to Arendelle: Queen Elsa, Princess Anna, Kristoff and his trusty reindeer Sven all make their return in the highly anticipated sequel Frozen 2, rated PG, in cinemas now.

But something begins to trouble Elsa - she hears a voice and knows she must travel to a legendary forest separated from Arendellian society by an impenetrable fog.

This quest takes the group to places audiences have never seen. The locations and design in this portion of the film are gorgeous, mixing the white snowy landscape with stunning red forest leaves.

The plot gets a little muddled here, and the story takes some leaps that are just a step too far, but that's not going to bother any of the kids watching.

Children will be utterly thrilled with Olaf's continued hilarity. The snowman is even funnier and more lovable than he was the first time around and has his own song that, while not as memorable as In Summer, is still great to sing along to.

There are a few new characters in Frozen 2, but none are particularly memorable.

That being said, a cute little salamander named Bruni is an absolute scene-stealer and is sure to be a popular toy in the months to come.

While it doesn't hit the same highs as its predecessor, Frozen 2 is still an enjoyable watch and is beautifully designed.

Stick around after the credits for a funny sting with Olaf.
