Children from Many and Sabine Parish are in for a special treat on Saturday, June 5 when FROZEN 2 plays on the huge screen at the Many Community Center.
The 2019 Walt Disney movie is free to everyone and begins at 7 p.m.
The animated movie is a favorite and is especially enjoyable when viewed on the theater’s 38-foot screen and stereo surround sound throughout the theater.
And —- more good news. Children can win free door prizes if they have winning tickets issued as they enter the theater. Walmart has donated several prizes that allow the winners to go to the Many Walmart store and select a gift of their choosing. Shanna Gaspard, talented Many artist, is donating a painting of Elsa. And there will be still more door prizes for the children attending the popular movie.
Here’s the plot of Frozen 2 because it does help to know what the movie is about before attending.
King Agnarr of Arendelle tells a story to his young daughters, Elsa and Anna, about their grandfather, King Runeard, establishing a treaty with a neighboring tribe of Northuldra by building a dam in their homeland, the Enchanted Forest. However, a fight occurs, resulting in Runeard’s death and enraging the elemental spirits of Earth, Fire, Water, and Air of the forest. The spirits disappear and a wall of mist traps everyone in the Enchanted Forest. Young Agnarr barely escapes due to the help of an unknown savior.
Three years after her coronation,[b] Elsa celebrates autumn in the kingdom with Anna, Olaf the snowman, Kristoff the ice harvester, and Kristoff’s reindeer Sven. One night, when Elsa hears a mysterious voice calling out to her, she follows it and unintentionally awakens the elemental spirits, which forces everyone in the kingdom to evacuate. Grand Pabbie and the Rock Troll colony arrive and Pabbie informs them that they must set things right by discovering the truth about the past. Elsa, Anna, Olaf, Kristoff, and Sven embark to the Enchanted Forest, following the mysterious voice. After the mist parts at Elsa’s touch, the Air spirit, in the form of a tornado, appears and sweeps everyone in its vortex. Elsa stops it, forming a set of ice sculptures. The sisters discover the sculptures are images from their father’s past. They encounter the Northuldra and a troop of Arendellian soldiers who are still in conflict with one another. When the Fire spirit appears, Elsa discovers the spirit to be an agitated magical salamander and calms it down. Elsa and Anna arrange a truce between the soldiers and the Northuldra after discovering that their mother, Queen Iduna, was a Northuldran who had saved Agnarr, an Arendellian. They later learn the existence of a fifth spirit who will unite the people with the magic of nature.
Elsa, Anna, and Olaf continue to head north, leaving Kristoff and Sven behind. They find their parents’ wrecked ship and a map with a route to Ahtohallan, a mythical river told by their mother to contain all explanations of the past. Elsa sends Anna and Olaf away to safety and continues alone. She encounters and tames the Nøkk, the Water spirit who guards the sea to Ahtohallan. Reaching Ahtohallan, a glacier, Elsa discovers that the voice calling to her was the memory of young Iduna’s call; that her powers were a gift from nature because of Iduna’s selfless act of saving Agnarr and that Elsa herself is the fifth spirit. Elsa learns that the dam was built as a ruse to reduce the Northuldra’s resources because of King Runeard’s contempt of the tribe’s connection with magic and his intention to wipe them out and incorporate the region into the kingdom. She then learns Runeard was the one who initiated the conflict by killing the unarmed Northuldra leader in cold blood. Elsa sends this information to Anna before becoming frozen due to venturing into the most dangerous part of Ahtohallan. This in turn causes Olaf to fade away.
Anna concludes that the dam must be destroyed for peace to be restored. Anna finds and awakens the gigantic Earth spirits and lures them towards the dam. The giants hurl boulders aimed at Anna which destroy the dam, sending a flood down the fjord towards the kingdom. Elsa thaws out and returns to Arendelle, diverting the flood and saving the kingdom. As the mist disappears, Elsa reunites with Anna and revives Olaf, and Anna accepts Kristoff’s marriage proposal. Elsa explains that she and Anna are the bridge between the people and the magical spirits.
Afterwards, Anna becomes the new Queen of Arendelle while Elsa becomes the protector of the Enchanted Forest who regularly visits Arendelle as peace has been restored.
