Last week Disney announced they are making a Frozen sequel. Why oh why? To me, sequels never live up to the hype and tend to be churned out. Sure, animating it will slow down production, but studios get wrapped up in the hype and sequels are normally anywhere from just OK to awful. Think the Pirates franchise. The first movie has a spark the others don't. Pixar did it right with Toy Story, but that's the exception. I'd hate to see the second Frozen lack all the spark of the first movie.
The question is do I trust Disney to do this right? Even with the right people in place, it could still end up bad. I feel protective of Frozen since I love it so much and I see a lot of myself in Anna. Is it my favorite Disney movie? No, that's still with Beauty and the Beast. I was tempted to see the Frozen short and skip out on Cinderella last weekend, but I've decided against that. Once Cinderella hits Netflix, I'll get it to watch the short and skip the movie.
Anybody else skeptical of Frozen 2, or love movies with awful sequels?
