What's the story?
INTO THE UNKNOWN: MAKING FROZEN 2 is a documentary series that chronicles the production of the second movie in the iconic Frozen franchise. It’s less than a year before the world premiere of Frozen 2, and directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck are working harder than ever to make sure that the many pieces of the movie are coming together. Viewers get a glimpse at the film’s different stages of production, ranging from reviewing animated storyboards under the direction of Marc E. Smith, to recording songs written by Frozen’s Oscar winning songwriters Bob Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez. As the pressure mounts to complete the feature film, it also reveals how they navigate the many challenges that come with producing a movie that stays true to the original, tells a unique story, and lives up to the Disney standard.
Is it any good?
This colorful series showcases lots of behind-the-scenes moments and pre-production footage that highlight the work and dedication that went into producing Frozen 2. It introduces viewers to some of the key people responsible for the making of the film, and explains the aspects of production they're responsible for. But much of the appeal is watching the performances of the celebrity voice talent, including Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Evan Rachel Wood, and Sterling K. Brown. Into the Unknown: Making Frozen 2 also offers some emotion-filled moments, as key cast and crew members share their feelings about impact Frozen and Frozen 2’s messages has had on them, and on other people’s lives. Chances are that younger Frozen fans expecting to see major scenes from the movie may find it a little boring. However, those old enough to understand it, and who enjoy learning more about movie-making, will find it worth the watch.
