If you were worried that Disney was pushing their luck with this upcoming ‘Frozen‘ sequel, well, maybe you should let your mind rest for a bit.
The film had its premiere in Los Angeles on Thursday, and the early reactions are pretty positive. Several critics jumped on their Twitter accounts to praise the sequel.
#Frozen2 is breathtakingly beautiful and leans in on empowerment for its characters. I cried at least 3 times. From the story to the last thread on Elsa's dress, the care and love put into it shows. And, good news, every one of Team Elsa gets at least one solo this time around.— Alisha Grauso (@AlishaGrauso) November 8, 2019
#Frozen2 seems to exist primarily bc box office for Frozen 1 demanded a sequel, but there’s still plenty to love here: eye-popping fantasy sequences, nice moments for your faves, LOTS of new songs incl the earworm-y “Into the Unknown,” and an unbearably cute new critter pic.twitter.com/PHg80bc1Bp— Angie J.

I can’t believe I am saying this, but FROZEN 2 is better than its predecessor. Darker, a little more mature, but still an excellent film for families, the songs believe it or not are catchier, so parents beware. SEE THIS MOVIE! #Frozen2 pic.twitter.com/0RLKpckHWS— Skyler Shuler (@Skylerhxc) November 8, 2019
Wow. Better than the first movie? That’s high praise, considering ‘Frozen’ is one of the most successful Disney films of all time. It made $1.2 billion during its run in 2013 and won several awards.
If the praise continues for this sequel and the audience responds with the same enthusiasm, there is a good chance this sequel hits the $1 billion mark as well.
Frozen 2 will hit theaters November 22, 2019.
