Critics Take to Twitter To Provide First Reviews of ‘Frozen 2’
Though it may still be a little under 2 weeks before the sequel of the season – Frozen 2 opens in theaters, premiere events were held this past week meaning that some critics have already had a chance to check out and weigh in on the film.
We always encourage our MickeyBlog readers to head to the theaters and make up your own minds but in the meantime, here’s what a few critics had to say about the film on Twitter:
Much of the initial feedback suggests that the film is deeper, darker and slightly more complex than the original:
Drew Taylor- Editor at Moviefone had this to say:
Loved #Frozen2. It’s a darker, more complex and more emotionally mature story, continuing everything you love about the first movie and upping the ante while maintaining the intimacy of the original. Gorgeous animation, wonderful new characters and (FINALLY) a Kristoff song! ❄️ pic.twitter.com/ZB7Dyul6Ia

And Alyssa Grauso from Atom Tickets commented on the emotional impact of the film.
#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.

Clayton Davis from AwardsCircuit also shared his positive feedback:
#Frozen2 embarks as not just an evolution of its characters, but it sincerely acknowledges that it's fanbase has grown over the last 6 years, and they have new things to learn in a changing world. Songs are plentiful. Beautiful shots at times. It was something I REALLY needed. pic.twitter.com/NMKEKvyLg0

And here’s one more from Jason Guerrasio from Business Insider.
#Frozen2 is a worthy sequel. Inspiring story. Elsa rides a water horse and it’s breathtaking. The song “Into the Unknown” is primed to be “Let It Go”-like addictive (sorry parents). And there’s even an ‘80s ballad… sung my Weezer in the end credits! Get ready!!! pic.twitter.com/0ZCol85OjR

And we might have a new “Let It Go” on our hands. Even though some critics felt mixed about the sequel they seemed to agree on the fact that this is one catchy tune!
Variety Editor Marc Malkin had this to say:
Yeah, I cant get #IntoTheUnknown out of my head. Goodnight.

Here’s praise for “Into the Unknown” from the Curvy Critic.

However, some critics felt mixed about the film suggesting it lacks a bit of the lustre of the original. Chief among them was Scott Mendelson from Forbes.
#Frozen2 is good, of not as good as the first. It looks great and has delightful banter, but the story feels like "dark sequel" Mad Libs (without the courage of its convictions). With two exceptions, the songs aren't very good, playing as redundant "explain my motivation" tunes. pic.twitter.com/4cGa8wpKGH

Here’s one more from Alison Foreman at Mashable.
Just got out of #Frozen2! It doesn’t capture all the magic of the first, but it’s got: Elsa in a wetsuit, Anna ugly crying, Sven ugly crying, Kristoff singing a ‘90s rock ballad, Olaf at his wisest, and… THIS GOOD BOY!! (We must protect him at all costs.) pic.twitter.com/a4WJ0k08Hs
