'Frozen II' Branded The 'Best Film Of The Year' By Fans

'Frozen II' Branded The 'Best Film Of The Year' By Fans

I think it's fair to say Frozen II is the most highly-anticipated flick to come out this year - heck probably the past decade. A bold statement we know, but it was the highest grossing animated film of all time... until The Lion King remake came along in August.

And according to fans of the first instalment, the Disney follow-up doesn't disappoint as they took to social media to rave about it, hours after it was released in cinemas today (Friday, 11th November).


The Disney sequel is set three years after the events of the first film and sees Elsa embark on a journey north after she hears a strange sound calling her.

Along with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven, the characters leave their home of Arendelle and embark on an adventure to discover the origin of Elsa's powers and ultimately save their kingdom.

Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad are all back to voice the characters for the sequel, which has been branded "darker" than the first by critics.

Taking to Twitter in their droves, cinema goers have claimed Frozen II is the "best movie of the year" - yes they went there - and others giving it a whopping ten out of ten.

"No shade Frozen 2 best movie of the year so far," one fan shared.

Another penned: "@DisneyFrozen #Frozen2 was AMAZING. I loved it so much! Can't wait to watch it again lol! Make sure you stay for the end credits!"

"So I already watched frozen 2 and... WHY I SAW SO MANY ELSA AND ANNA MOMENTS THAN ANNA WITH HER BF AKELFLGL," a third wrote. "But after all... the movie is perfect, I luv it!" (sic).

A cinema-goer posted: "Disney DID NOT DISAPPOINT".

The fan reaction comes two weeks after film critics shared their thoughts on the sequel and insisted that is was better than the original film.

Film critic Clayton Davis called Frozen II "the rare sequel that surpasses the original" adding: "The scope is twice as staggering, the action twice as thrilling, the auto-cannibalism sequences twice as harrowing, the songs twice as catchy."

He added: "Didn't think I needed a sequel to Frozen, but turns out I was very, very wrong."

Skyler Shuler, editor at The DisInsider, agreed, saying: "I can't believe I am saying this, but Frozen 2 is better than its predecessor."

Another running theme in the reviews was that the second instalment is far "darker" than the original.

"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," said Draw Taylor, a critic from Moviefone.

Shuler added the film was "darker, a little more mature, but still an excellent film for families."

There's also a lot of chat about the soundtrack with power ballads set to match up to 'Let It Go', including a song called 'Into The Unknown' by Panic! At The Disco.

Frozen 2 is out in cinemas now.
