Frozen 2 was released last week, so it’s just beginning to circulate in the pop culture world of the internet. However, many moments and lines from the film are already becoming quite popular. Frozen 2 deals with many complex subjects such as family, growing up, identity, and the history of colonialism. In many ways, it’s a more mature film than Frozen, and it handles these themes in more nuanced ways. This is why many of the best quotes from the movie are rather deep or inspiring.
Here are the ten best quotes from Frozen 2 that are pure magic.
10 “MY LOVE IS NOT FRAGILE.”
One of the most refreshing things about the movie is that romance isn't the main plot. The sister relationship between Anna and Elsa was the core of the film, and the romance between Anna and Kristoff was the subplot. Also, the romance was more a focus for Kristoff than for Anna. While Kristoff worries and questions their relationship when he reunites with Anna near the end of the film, he is confident in their relationship in their love, and it's a really refreshing moment.
9 “I BELIEVE IN YOU, ELSA. MORE THAN ANYONE OR ANYTHING.”
One of the most powerful aspects of Frozen 2 is that it focuses so much on the relationship between Anna and Elsa.
Their love for each other and bond as sisters is very strong and leads to a lot of emotional moments. Anna’s respect and admiration for Elsa is really endearing, and it’s clear that she is extremely loyal and committed to keeping Elsa safe. When she tells Elsa this line, it’s the kind of inspiration that she desperately needs.
8 “WHO KNOWS THE WAYS OF MEN?”
While Olaf definitely had a lot of funny moments in the original, he has just as many in the sequel. He’s actually a bit more rounded out as a character this time around and is less naive. He is having a lot of crises about growing up and philosophical issues. This is a funny line because it’s coming from a snowman, and it also is hilarious to many human women. But, it’s definitely done in a good-natured way that doesn’t mean anything cruel about men as a gender.
7 “YOU ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR CHOICES, ELSA.”
Anna is really the stand out star of this movie in many ways. While Elsa has many inspiring and dramatic moments, Anna’s steady, loyal nature is what keeps them all going. It’s clear that Elsa has a lot of responsibilities and that she takes a lot upon herself. But, luckily, Anna is there to help lessen the burden. She’s definitely one of the most inherently good and caring characters in the movie, and seeing her help Elsa on her journey is inspiring.
6 “WATER IS MEMORY.”
This is another one of Olaf’s more philosophical quotes. He is clearly into reading a lot of metaphysical literature, and he offers this sage bit of wisdom. This quote is key to many plot points in the movie. And, while the water in our world doesn’t function the same because there’s no magic, it does connect to many of the best things about the movie, and its emphasis on respecting nature and other people and cultures. Olaf definitely has some moments of giving out great advice even when he doesn’t realize it.
5 “FEAR CAN’T BE TRUSTED.”
This is one of the best quotes that Elsa says in the movie. It’s a great quote that can be applied to many real-life situations, so it’s rather inspiring in that way. But, one of the things that makes this quote wonderful is how it reflects the journey Elsa has been on.
While in the first film she was giving in to fear, she learned that fear is what kept her from being able to control her powers and be herself. So, her saying this now is definitely a step forward in her character's arc.
4 “YOU FEEL WHAT YOU FEEL AND YOUR FEELINGS ARE REAL.”
This is another quote from Frozen 2 that’s extremely powerful because it can be applied to many things we all face. It’s Olaf who says this quote, and it is definitely something to try and live by. This is an extremely validating line that reminds us all that it’s okay to feel how we feel and not push our feelings aside. While Olaf might be a funny snowman, he is good at providing advice and helping people out.
3 “I’M HERE. WHAT DO YOU NEED?”
This is the line that Kristoff says to Elsa when they reunite near the end of the film. This is another great moment because it shows that these two have a wonderful relationship.
It’s also refreshing to see Kristoff being supportive and trying to help Anna with what she needs instead of trying to come in and be the hero. He doesn’t try to take over, but instead listens to her and helps her how he can.
2 “SHOW YOURSELF. STEP INTO YOUR POWER.”
This line is the only quote on this list that comes from one of the songs from the movie. There are many inspiring and magical lines from the soundtrack, but this one is especially empowering. It’s a key moment in Elsa’s journey to figuring out who she is and her power. It’s also a line that can inspire many of us in our own lives to be who we are and find out own power.
1 “ALL ONE CAN DO IS THE NEXT RIGHT THING.”
Of all of the lines that are memorable from Frozen 2, this one comes up the most and is the simplest message to take away. It was first said by Grand Pabbie, and it was later said by Anna as well as she remembers this message. This is a great quote that can be applied to how to live life. The importance of trying to do the right thing is a great way to look at life decisions instead of focusing on planning everything out perfectly.
