Having harnessed her ever-growing power after lifting the dreadful curse of the eternal winter in Frozen (2013), the beautiful conjurer of snow and ice, Queen Elsa, now rules the peaceful kingdom of Arendelle, enjoying a happy life with her sister, Princess Anna. However, a melodious voice that only Elsa can hear keeps her awake, inviting her to the mystical enchanted forest that the sisters' father told them about a long time ago. Now, unable to block the thrilling call of the secret siren, Elsa, along with Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven summons up the courage to follow the voice into the unknown, intent on finding answers in the perpetually misty realm in the woods. More and more, an inexplicable imbalance is hurting not only her kingdom but also the neighboring tribe of Northuldra. Can Queen Elsa put her legendary magical skills to good use to restore peace and stability?Written by

Anna inciting the Rock Giants to throw their boulders was an incredibly stupid and hazardous way to remove the menace of the dam - when this could've been safely accomplished simply by partially opening the sluice gates, and then dismantling the dam once all the excess water had gently drained away.

Uh-oh! The princess is trapped in the snow goblin's evil spell. Quick, Elsa, make a prince! A fancy one!
[Elsa makes a prince figure]
Oh no! The prince is trapped too! Who cares about danger when there's love?
[She makes the figures kiss]
Ugh, Anna, bleugh! Kissing won't save the forest. The lost fairies cry out.

Various elements of the forest are represented in art in the first half of the closing credits. Frozen (2013) also featured the Enchanted Forest trees in the art of its closing credits. See more »
Worth it for the Visuals, but plot wise all over the place.
This is a beautiful movie, and Elsa's journey is a powerful one to watch. But outside of this it's narrative is completely unfocused and none of the character moments are given the time they deserve on screen. It seems that it's trying to be more adult with more lore and a darker tone, but also still gives Olaf an unnecessary about of screen time doing things that the little kids would laugh at. The pacing also feels quite rushed, even by kids movie standards. You could have cut 20 minutes out of this movie and it would have been just as good.
