Frozen II had its world premiere at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on November 7, 2019, and was released in the United States by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures on November 22, 2019. The film received mostly positive reviews from critics, who praised its animation, visuals, music and vocal performances, although criticism focused on its convoluted plot. It has grossed $738 million worldwide, and had the highest all-time worldwide opening for an animated film.
I do have to stay that while the movie was great, and as usual I shed a few tears, the songs may not be as catchy as in Frozen. However, my daughter especially loved the film, and it was a great movie to see on a rainy Sunday morning. It was so good, I am ready for another sequel already! If you liked the first Frozen, that don't freeze this sequel out of your heart and go see it...
MY RATING: 10 OUT OF 10
