We recently had the pleasure of attending the Atlanta premiere of Disney’s Frozen 2 at Atlanta’s classic Plaza Theatre. I could just go on and on about the Plaza Theatre, but that’s for another post! If you’re an Atlanta native, suffice it to say you should make it a date night & catch any movie at the Plaza Theatre ASAP.
Now, git ya Arendelle Aqua on, and grab ya popcorn, cause we’re on to Frozen 2. We were gifted tickets to attend the premiere several days before the movie opened. I was so excited to rejoin the adventures of my favorite gal duo, Elsa and Anna, that I could hardly contain my excitement the week leading up to the event! We arrived early (as you need to do at these types of screening events) and grabbed a large popcorn and a couple of sodas. We chose a pair of seats closer upfront and to the right of the screen and before I knew it, we were in the middle of a snow-flurried theatre! That. was. so. cool! Thank you, Disney, for the Theatrics!
Who is calling to Elsa? When the movie opens, we see that Queen Elsa’s story is still being written as she struggles with a calling for something greater. What really happened to Anna & Elsa’s parents? What about the bedtime stories the girls used to hear from their parents about an enchanted forest in the north. A place where the river and a dam may have all the answers to their family’s long-ago disputes with the indigenous people that reside there. The crew set out for a fun, funny and lighthearted journey with Olaf, Kristoff & Sven to discover the truth about their ancestral lineage, what their places are in history, and how to care for their beloved Arendelle and its people.
Oh- and try to patiently await Kristoff’s 80’s number. The wait is hard, but it is so worth it!
It should be noted that a lot of the landscaping storyboards in this film seem heavily reminiscent of the “Sleeping Beauty” background art of Eyvind Earle, one of my favorites.
As you can imagine, you are in for some new original songs. One of my everlasting & heartfelt reasons why I love (and feel so connected to) my Disney movies. I have found myself humming along with the tune of “Into the unknown” and the strong folk-style tune called “All is found”, which is just so beautifully crafted. Check Elsa out hittin’ that E flat note on the “Into the unknown”, & Pick up the soundtrack on Vinyl here & spin it all throughout the Holidays:
If the Frozen-loving little girl sitting behind my 17-year-old and me, who already knew all the words to almost every song is any indication, your children (ahem, and you) are in line to be absolutely delighted with Frozen 2. I can’t wait to see it again!
So let it go and join Elsa, Anna and the crew on a new adventure. You’ll be entranced by the elements and make memories with new songs. Are reindeer are better than people? IDK, I think we’re all pretty cool, but I do love that carrot eating, sleigh-pulling, Kristoff’s-conscience-in-reindeer-form, Sven! He is mine + Riley’s fave Frozen character 4-EVA! Who is your Frozen fave?
Enjoy Frozen 2, out in theatres everywhere 11/22/19!
