Why Frozen 2 should be on your must-see list
Did the bigwigs at Disney sit down and say, “We really need to make a blockbuster for BALANCE readers”? We’re guessing not. Frozen 2 speaks to our very soul. The over-arching theme is about following that inner voice, listening to your gut and pursuing your true calling. If you’ve ever followed a passion and seen life-changing results, you’ll know what we’re talking about.
Following from the first record-smashing outing (the highest-grossing animation ever), Elsa (Idina Menzel) lives a perfectly happy life in Arendelle. She has her beloved sister Anna (Kristen Bell), plus pals Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and Olaf (Josh Gad).
Everything might be just fine with Elsa, yet something isn’t sitting quite right. Our superhero with icy powers yearns for something more. It’s a message we can all get behind. Settling for what we have is obviously commendable, but if there’s an itch that our soul is telling us to scratch, then scratch it we should.
Though it’s inaudible to all others, Elsa can hear a voice calling her. When she twigs that, no, she isn’t imagining this, it leads up to the epic song Into The Unknown, arguably the closest the sequel gets to the intoxicating highs of Let It Go from the 2013 original. The sequel also welcomes new additions Evan Rachel Wood as the mysterious Queen Iduna and BALANCE favourite, Sterling K Brown as Lieutenant Matthias. If your gut is telling you to book tickets, we’d suggest listening – this is going to break more records.
Frozen 2 is in cinemas from 22 November
