    Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Sven, and leave Arendelle for an enchanted forrest in the hopes of discovering the origins of Elsa’s powers.

    8 reasons to skip and 2 to see it:

    10(Bad). Sterling K. Brown voices the only black guy in Arendelle and even then he’s only good for a couple sentences.

    9(Good). The animation looks good here but we knew it would. Arendelle remains a perfectly cozy, Fairy Tale-like little place,…
