‘Into the Unknown’: The Making of ‘Frozen II’ Was AMAZING!

I love behind-the-scenes documentaries for movies. They give great insight into the process behind making a film and all of the extremely hard work that goes into a huge production for big budget projects for the likes of movies like The Lord of the Rings or Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

A new six-episode docuseries called Into the Unknown: The Making of Frozen II was released recently on Disney+ and I just binge-watched it yesterday. I already personally enjoyed the film but after seeing the amount of hours and the nail-biting drama that went into bringing what would become the highest-grossing animated film of all time to life was nothing short of extraordinary.

Writer Jennifer Lee really did a remarkable job taking the criticism brought on by viewers of all ages to create a film that touched in powerful ways that only built upon the love garnered from Frozen back in 2013. One of the most fascinating things to learn was that the film’s animation was only 20% complete when the first teaser arrived back in February. Basically…nothing was created for the film yet except some rough animation. The rest of the movie was comprised of storyboards. Yikes!

I learned so much yesterday about the process needed to make an animated film as great as the likes of Frozen II and by the conclusion of the docuseries I felt a sense of triumph following this incredible journey needed to create such an enjoyable sequel.

No, Frozen II wouldn’t garner an Oscar nomination for Best Picture this time but the fact that it managed to drive people to the theaters to see it over and over again says something about the grandeur of this story and how it resonated with people…and honestly sometimes that’s all can you ask for.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day.
