Movie Review: Frozen II (2019)

I went to see Frozen II over winter break in the theater with my 8-year-old son.   We had a blast! The sequel is a charming musical showing the power of sisterhood, empowerment, love, and acceptance. In a way it’s an origin story for Elsa.  I loved that we got to learn about Elsa and Anna’s parents.
