It starts out with Young Elsa and Young Anna, and, I don’t know, this is just my opinion, but I didn’t think that part was very necessary, necessarily? I thought the story was good. I thought the parts were well thought out and they had some depth to them, if you know what I mean? Like some parts were really sad, and some parts could be interpreted in a lot of different ways.

Also, you know how in the first Frozen, there’s like this main song that you know is the main song? In this one, there’s like three or four different songs that could be that main song. There were songs that like Elsa and Anna and Kristoff sang that could qualify for that position. I thought they were fine. I don’t hate them but I don't like them. They’re not my style. They’re tolerable. And I felt like the Olaf song in this one was a little bit unnecessary. I felt like it was funny, for comedic purposes. Other than that it didn’t serve a purpose for expanding on the story.

This second movie was more dark and generally, on the scare-o-meter, it would be higher than Frozen. I thought the animation in the movie was actually pretty good. There were those ice figures, and seeing the memory of Elsa’s mother and father. And the salamander fire dude was honestly really cool because he’s really cute and he’s a small salamander that causes large fire things. So I would honestly give the CGI a thumbs up.

I feel like the whole point of this movie was: Do the next right thing. I feel like this movie was trying to send a message to kids to do the next right thing. But the style isn’t directed at kids my age. I’m in middle school, and I don’t think middle schoolers want to watch Frozen II. I feel like Frozen II is directed at younger kids more than middle schoolers.
