At The Movies
Three years after the events of the first film, Elsa (Idina
Menzel) starts to hear a strange sound from the
north calling her. Together with her sister Anna (Kristen
Bell), Kristoff, Olaf (Josh Gad),
and Sven, they embark on a new journey beyond their
homeland of Arendelle in order to discover the origin of
Elsa's magical powers and save their kingdom. Frozen 2
has a different feel to it. While the first film was
brimming with quirky moments, the follow up feels a
little more mature in its plot and themes. This story
heavily centers around the importance of change, even if
that means letting go. Frozen 2 has everything any good
animated film should have. Perfect story, a new world,
lovable characters, phenomenon visuals, strong bonding
between characters, emotions and then a happy ending.

for Dora (Isabela Moner) to experience the life of a regular
teenager. They send her to the city to go to high school with her cousin Diego.
Dora soon realizes that high school is merely another type of jungle and does
her best to navigate it and enjoy the adventure. When mercenaries who are
searching for Dora's parents kidnap her, Diego and some of their classmates
while they're on a scavenger hunt at a local museum, Dora must do more than save
herself. Along with her best monkey friend, Boots, Dora must use everything she
has learned in both forested and concrete jungles to help them all survive while
trying to locate the lost city.
