Frozen II (2019)

dir. Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee. Is the Arendelle built dam plot line a critique of China’s Belt and Road Initiative, and implication of debt-diplomacy exercised by one country over a less powerful, but strategically important neighboring country? It’s certainly not, not about that. It’s also a charming, beautiful looking fairy tale, with many moments of brilliant animation that reminded me of FANTASIA (1940). Some of the establishment shots seem inspired by Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The songs are all beautifully sung, but nothing to the ear worm level of ‘Let It Go’, but you know what they say…
