*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
If you’ve ever made it through “Do You Want to Build a Snowman,” Coronation Day and (um) parental death with no problem, only to have your child flip his lid when Elsa’s snow monster appears on screen, you’re probably the type of parent who wants to know what she’s getting into before shelling out $26 for two movie tickets to the sequel. Your number one question this holiday season: Is Frozen 2 scarier than Frozen? Bottom line: Yes, Frozen 2 is a little scarier than the original. We’ll explain.
As a memory-jogger, the major scary moments in the first film came in the form of Marshmallow (the snow monster), some eerie glowing wolf eyes and a final scene where Hans locks Elsa in a dungeon and then encourages Anna to freeze to death.
In contrast, the sequel has ginormous rock monsters made of boulders (like, they are three times as tall as trees). In other words, it’s the same scariness level as the aforementioned Marshmallow.
