Frozen 2 Sing-Along (U)


Director: Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee
Starring: Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, Evan Rachel Wood, Sterling K. Brown
Duration: 103min 

"Far away, as north as we can go, once stood an enchanted forest." So begins the new fairy-tale animated musical from the creative team of Disney's 2013 Oscar-winning FROZEN. The original cast are reunited as snow queen Elsa, Princess Anna, Sámi iceman Kristoff, reindeer Sven and Olaf the cheery snowman. Leaving their kingdom of Arundelle, the friends set out in search of secrets from the past, following a mysterious call from the north. Once Queen Elsa feared her icy powers were too much for the world, but in FROZEN 2 she must hope they are enough. Visually sumptuous, FROZEN 2 promises explosions of stars, ice magic, horse-shaped water spirits, and all accompanied by terrific, memorable songs. Enchantment, fun and the perfect family outing.

Robert Downey Jr. electrifies one of literature's most enduring characters in a vivid reimagining of the classic tale of the man who could talk to animals: Dolittle. After losing his wife seven years earlier, the eccentric Dr. John Dolittle, famed doctor and veterinarian of Queen Victoria's England, hermits himself away behind the high walls of Dolittle Manor with only his menagerie of exotic animals for company. But when the young queen falls gravely ill, a reluctant Dolittle is forced to set sail on an epic adventure to a mythical island in search of a cure, regaining his wit and courage as he crosses old adversaries and discovers wondrous creatures.
