Six years after the success of Frozen – the highest grossing animated film of all time, the characters – Elsa, Anna and Olaf are back for more adventures in Frozen 2. You can watch the saga unfold with your family at the Ster-Kinekor Theatres in South Africa. Frozen 2 also releases in IMAX at Ster-Kinekor CapeGate in Cape Town.
About Frozen 2
Frozen 2 – or Frozen II, is set three years after the events of the first film and the story follows Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven, who embark on a journey beyond their kingdom of Arendelle in order to discover the origin of Elsa’s magical powers and save their kingdom after a mysterious voice calls out to Elsa.
In one trailer, Elsa is seen trying to use her freezing powers to run across violent waves, but is ultimately taken down by the water. This trailer became the most watched animated trailer of all time within 24 hours.
Disney also released a clip featuring fresh footage of the gang’s venture into the enchanted lands, along with a snippet of a new song called Into the Unknown, which is expected to become a hit.
Frozen 2 certainly has a message that will charm audiences!

“As is often true in animation, Frozen 2 soars highest when it embraces abstraction, as in one number with a pitch-black void that entertainingly evokes Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin,” The New York Times wrote.
Empire Magazine gave the film a 4/5 stars. It said; “The best things about the first film – the characters and music – once again sing in a frequently dazzling if narratively flawed sequel that’s better at being sensory than sense-making.”
“The delight and dazzle of this frosty follow-up brings it all home in a climax that should have audiences panting for a part III,” Rolling Stone wrote and also gave the film a 4/5 stars.
The Guardian gave the film a 4/5 stars and said: “The sisters try to heal the sins of the past in a moving follow-up that touches on climate change and has at least one great song.”
