Join us for this week's episode "Frozen 2". We talk losing your noodles hearing voices, lazy naming schemes, token characters, musical shoehorns, forcefields and why you never release a sequel without a tagline in the name. Does this movie have us surfing the Ahtohallan or would we prefer to be frozen forever? Find out now!
Storyline :Having harnessed her ever-growing power after lifting the dreadful curse of the eternal winter in Frozen (2013), the beautiful conjurer of snow and ice, Queen Elsa, now rules the peaceful kingdom of Arendelle, enjoying a happy life with her sister, Princess Anna. However, a melodious voice that only Elsa can hear keeps her awake, inviting her to the mystical enchanted forest that the sisters' father told them about a long time ago. Now, unable to block the thrilling call of the secret siren, Elsa, along with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven summons up the courage to follow the voice into the unknown, intent on finding answers in the perpetually misty realm in the woods. More and more, an inexplicable imbalance is hurting not only her kingdom but also the neighboring tribe of Northuldra. Can Queen Else put her legendary magical skills to good use to restore peace and stability?

We were honestly pretty disappointed in the soundtrack as a whole for Frozen 2. But really how do you follow up something like Let It Go from the first soundtrack? It just fell short for us. Check out the playlist below and let us know how you felt about the soundtrack for Frozen 2.
Into the Unknown.....Actually these facts are known.
Olaf's lines about the non-existent character "Samantha" were improvised by Josh Gad.
Kristoff's song "Lost in the Woods" is done in the style of a 1980's power ballad. The sequence even recreates scenes from well known videos of that era, including those from the bands Whitesnake and Queen.
Elsa is the only Disney princess or queen to have her own nationally issued and used currency (money). Kristoff purchases items at a store in Arendelle with two coins showing Elsa's silhouette, a silhouette similar to the one on the flags outside the castle on Elsa's coronation day.
The official teaser trailer was released on February 13, 2019. It proceeded to become the most viewed animated movie trailer of all time, with 116,400,000 views in the first 24 hours.
The large "snowflake" symbol which seems incorrect (because it does not exhibit six-fold symmetry) is in fact a Vegvisir - an eight-fold symmetrical magical stave, intended to help the bearer find their way through rough weather.
No shocker here, Frozen 2 is streaming exclusively on Disney+ here!
