A few years after the events of Frozen, Elsa hears the calling of a mysterious voice from the Enchanted Forest and unknowingly awakens the elemental spirits of Earth, Fire, Water, and Air. She feels an urge to follow the voice, but Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven insist on joining her quest. This enjoyable sequel offers a natural progression to Elsa’s story, in which the other characters, admittedly, don’t have much to do. Although this animation is no match to the original, it offers a nice blend of drama and comedy, wonderful visuals, and moving songs by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.
