Why Frozen 2 Breaks the Sequel Curse and the Princess Theory

Long gone are the princess movies where she has to be saved by the prince in order to be considered whole. The princesses of the past were flat, not complete and simply a fantasy. But then came Frozen, when the love of two sisters is the true love that saved the day – that together they build each other up and were completely relatable. Where the men in their lives (at least the positive ones) were there to help support them and be there as they find their own voices.

So when we you go to the theaters to see Frozen II, you’re going to expect nothing less than that in this movie. What fans can expect this time is nothing less than magical. The characters have evolved, grown and have started to find their true voices. Even Olaf is starting to mature and is similar to a teenager questioning everything around him. And the sisters – both are still searching to find their own place in the world despite what the world has told them they need to be.

The story in Frozen II is one that will resonate with you, and one you can relate to if you’ve ever found yourself trying to find who you really are. But obviously, in the movie it’s all wrapped in magic and in a pretty bow – it makes it one that kids (of all ages) will be able to relate to.

With new songs that you will find yourself singing, a new adventure and more – you’re going to fall in love with Frozen II. The movie is full of laughs, parts that will make you cry and even a few meta moments that poke fun at the original movie. Elsa and Anna will inspire you to find your inner self in this beautiful movie that helps expand their world and lives, and watch as their relationships not only grow but change into what they they want and need.

Frozen II is in theaters everywhere on November 22nd.

Breaking the Sequel Curse

Frozen II is doing something that Disney movies don’t usually do – bringing the sequel of a princess movie right to the big screen. If we take Ralph Breaks the Internet out of the equation (since Vanellope is a secondary character) this is the first time one of the Disney blockbusters has had a second movie in theaters. Not only does that mean that the sequel isn’t going directly DVD or Disney Junior or the Disney Channel, but instead is predicted to make over $145 Million on its opening weekend alone.

They don’t usually don’t make big screen releases of animated musical movies. So why now? And why is Frozen II set to break so many records and break this sequel curse that usually falls on the stereotypical princess movie? The short answer – fans just can’t “Let it go”, the music is updated, the story more mature and the animation is on point. The movie has grown with its fans and we know that it’s not just a flash in the pan. Frozen II isn’t going to fall into the trap of the subpar sequel, instead it may quickly replace the original as your favorite and have you wanting more.

Shattering the Princess Theory

If you’re a Disney fan and you watch Youtube at all, by now you’ve seen the layers and layers of Disney Princess theories that are out there. Including the ones that are related and the how their stories lead into one another.

If you’re not sure about the theory – here are a few ideas of what they have in common and the fan theories that have been flooding the internet for years:

While we’re not going to give any spoilers about the movie, what we will say is we think Disney was listening. And they have taken those fan theories and shattered them with Frozen II. Not only will it make you question what you know about the movie but it’s going to create a whole new set of videos and theories for fans.

You’re going to love watching this unfold, and we know that the little details wont be lost on fans of Disney Princesses and the world is going to keep expanding. But there are new elements of Elsa and Anna’s story to unfold just from this pivotal moment in the film.

Areas of Concern

All Disney movies have to have conflict – it wouldn’t be an epic adventure if there wasn’t any. But for small kids, there may be a couple points that are harder to watch. There are some battle scenes and implied damage, but those go by pretty quickly. But one scene in particular was a bit darker and it could be scary for some young viewers – this is the scene where Elsa is trying to tame the water horse. With dark scenes, imposing music and crashing waves – it is a bit intense. However, as Kristen Bell said during the press conference – sometimes the scary moments are ok to experience for kids, in a controlled environment.
