  • Published on Dec 5, 2019
  • "Frozen 2" is the long-awaited follow-up to the 2013 Disney animated smash hit featuring characters like Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Kristoff, and Sven. For the sequel, animators updated Anna and Elsa's outfits, re-built parts of Arendelle, and figured out how to turn water, wind, fire, and rocks into living, breathing creatures like Gale and the Nokk. We took a look at all of the interesting details and techniques the Disney animators used to make "Frozen II" and how they improved upon the first film.

    Can we also appreciate that at the start elsa was not wearing the OG dress from frozen 1. Like she had brand new cloths, which makes it more realistic. CUz mainly in disney movie everyday they have the same exact cloths.

    with all this animation they didn't won Golden Globe best animated featured which is Missing link that is won, and not even nominee to Oscar. this happened when you gave a responsibilities to people that acknowledge or old for choosing a nomination, they don't even acknowledge how frozen 2 and Toy Story 4 pushed their limitation for the animation, they didn't even see the detail what they were put in this film, you know the main reason i watched frozen 2 for 8 times? bcause the animation is so stunning, the colors, the detailed, the saturation, value, water, face motion, is very calm to watch. i still don't get it why is not even nominee in oscar.

    actaully with horses, the ears mean a lot. if the ears are pricked forward they are either alert, happy, or something like that. If the ears are pinned back they are angry. If they are being ridden, and you are making the “kissing sounds” or saying a command like “trot” “easy” “woah” or “good boy/girl) they may flip back one ear to show they are listening. Of course this isnt always the case, as each horse is different!

      Katarina Teofanov they are 3 years older I think. In the first movie it says “3 years later” after the parents passed. Then in the new one the girls say it was 6 years ago they died

    The water scene makes me incredible levels of uncomfortable because I had an experience when I was younger that my family finally talked me into bogie boarding, even though I didn't want to. It was going okay but I wasn't really having much actual fun. But then as I was preparing for the next wave, it somehow swallowed me and tossed me under. I went back to where we were staying soon after that, with the taste and stickiness of salt in my mouth and all over me, and being scarred for life. :)
