  1. I have one complaint about that. I love DVD special features. You don't get that on streaming services.
  2. I don't think people were necessarily setting themselves up for another Let It Go, because let's face it, only songs like "Reflection" (and potentially I'll Make a Man Out of You"), "Circle of Life" or "Beauty and the Beast" can be said to have a breakout value comparable to Let It Go (for their pre-Internet time period). Not that all the other songs in Disney's library aren't great, just that there are those select stand-outs. What I think people were expecting though—myself among them—was for the songs to be catchy. The kind of song that you're gleefully humming out of the theater because it gets so stuck in your head. Frozen 1 had a ton like that. Let It Go, Love is an Open Door, For the First Time in Forever, In Summer, Do You Wanna Build a Snowman... all of them have such a Broadway bounciness and/or energy that it's hard not to have those songs be ear-worms. Frozen 2... kinda has that in some respects, but not much. All is Found - Gorgeous, very much has the feel of something like You'll Be in My Heart. Not catchy but a sweet lullaby. Some Things Never Change - This one has that Disney catchy-ness, and I swear it sounds like something from a parade at Disney World. Into the Unknown - the catchy stand-out yeah, but this song? It's hard to sing! Let It Go had some tough high notes at the end, but that was just at the end. ItU takes that high note at the end of LiG and has it be sung multiple times in the chorus of the song. Let It Go was catchy, ear-wormy, applicable to many, and easily singable. This one is pretty tied to Elsa's powers lyric-wise, and a lot harder to sing if you actually want to hit all the notes properly. When I'm Older - this one has the catchy upbeat tone of In Summer, good song Lost in the Woods - the actual song is pretty nice, but it being like an 80's ballad feels kind of out of place (especially with the accompanying visuals). Show Yourself - now THIS is the kind of "iconic singable Disney song" kind of vibe as the rest of the Disney Renaissance and the Revival have. It's incredible, easily singable, epic, and relatable without being too heavily tied to the specific character experience like Into the Unknown was. Definitely up to the quality I'd expect from the first one. The Next Right Thing - I love this song. I do. But I think this song more than any other is an example of why I don't think Frozen 2 will get a sing-along release. Why? Because it's freaking depressing. The beginning lyrics especially are probably the most depressing lyrics I've ever heard (easily from Disney, possibly ever). It's slow, the beginning sounds borderline suicidal, it's just more like something out of Les Mis rather than Disney. True it gets more hopeful at the end, but considering it's the last song in the film it's a bleak one to end on and sing. This is certainly a Les Mis-vibe song, and Les Mis didn't exactly get a widespread sing-along release (it seems it did get one at some point though, so who knows?)
  3. It doesn't come on Disney+ til then? Aww. I really need to catch up on the series, but DANG "Ready As I'll Ever Be" is a fantastic song.
  4. That was a remake of one of the most beloved animated films of all time, plus it had Emma Watson (I love Emma ordinarily but they should have cast someone who's a trained singer), plus a few new songs. It was guaranteed to do big numbers.
  5. Also I think it being set in New Orleans wasn't a bit draw. In comparison to something like a fantasy world (much of Disney's fairy tales), Imperial China (Mulan), Paris (Hunchback), New Orleans just seems... underwhelming and boring (at least that was my main issue with it at the time it came out, New Orleans was just a bleh setting to me).
  6. Then again, almost everything else WDAS has put out this decade was an original film. Sequels automatically have the expectation factor of living up to the original so it's no wonder most sequels are seen as lesser (Toy Story 2 and 3 being the exceptions)
  7. This is what I'm assuming from that review just taking in the emojis and assuming it goes in order: -starts out really sweet -has some humor in the early minutes -something concerning happens, tense and surprising stuff with the four elements -some humor and surprising stuff around the middle -entertaining songs especially in the middle -really funny part at some point past the middle -a whole lot of ice magic awesomeness -power of love comes into play again -the water horse and Bruni the lizard play a part in the ending climax -ending with a whole lot of awesome stuff and sparkly magic.
  8. Also the Lopezes who did Frozen's songs did the songs for WtP, so that's a bonus! Also Jennifer Lee (who's head of Disney now since Lasster left) said recently they're definitely up to doing more 2D animated films in the future, so there's hope!
  9. Also to be fair, I think the only times it's been unanimously agreed a sequel was better than the original (for a stand-alone movie that is) was Toy Story 2 and Shrek 2.
  10. Got my tickets! I guess a lot of people don't know that the tickets are available already considering all but about 5 of the seats in my chosen showing were still open, lol. Do any of you have recliner seats in your theaters?
  11. My sibling and I are really hoping to get to see this soon! Also, while I haven't seen the second one yet, one thing that I love about Maleficent is that it's a Disney story retelling that does something completely different with the source material. It doesn't just try to be a copy of the original (looking at you, Lion King), and it doesn't claim to follow the same plot as the original while then going and making a whole much of unneeded changes and tossing out beloved characters (looking at you big-time, upcoming-Mulan-movie). It takes the characters we're familiar with and puts them in a completely new setting and situation. It's basically like an alternate adaptation with the characters rather than being just a cash-grab remake.
