One Fun Thing: In Frozen 2, Elsa Takes On Climate Change

It’s the climate movie of the year, hands down.  Disney’s Frozen 2 opened last weekend to record numbers at the box office in the U.S. and globally.  Disney’s timing is perfect — we need a global wake up call and a call to action by a compelling voice who will inspire action.  Picking up where real-life heroine Greta Thunberg left off, the movie is infused with environmental messages and themes.  According to Jonathan Goff, who voices Kristoff in the movie, “Every sort of character…is connected to this idea of taking care of the world around you and not taking things for granted, and also respecting the power of the environment.”  Without giving away the plot, in the movie, Elsa faces the reality of climate change and how her abilities may give her a purpose to set things right.   I (Monica) am looking forward to seeing it with my young niece Quincy and our entire family over the holiday weekend!  Let it go!
