The 602 Club: A Geekery Speakeasy

Frozen II.

There are not many Disney animated films that have received sequels released in the theater, but with the box office success that Frozen was for the company, it would come as no surprise that there would be a follow up, looking to reignite the passion for all things Frozen.

In this episode of The 602 Club hosts Matthew Rushing and Christy Morris talk about Frozen II. We discuss sequels, leaving the theater, the truth of history, growing up, the songs, the next right thing, love, the Northundra, the animation, Olaf, ratings and our recommendations.
