Frozen II SEX/NUDITY 1
– A man and a woman kiss. A man and woman hug and kiss after the woman accepts his marriage proposal. A woman kisses a man. A man and a woman kiss in a flashback. A man and woman hug. A woman kisses a man on the cheek and ruffles his hair, and then talks about his clothing saying, “I prefer you in leather.” A man sings a song about love and commitment and is anxious about proposing marriage to a woman in several scenes. Two young girls play with ice statue characters and one girl makes a male and female kiss.
► A man sings a song about love, drifting apart and being lost without love. A man awkwardly tries to propose marriage to a woman in a few scenes. A man proposes to a woman walking toward him, not realizing she is not the woman he loves. A character sways its hips during a round of charades and a man guesses that it is acting out a woman’s manner of walking.
► A woman wears a low-cut dress that reveals cleavage in several scenes throughout the movie.
Frozen II VIOLENCE/GORE 3
– Two women find a wrecked ship and one conjures images from drops of water that illustrate the last moments of their parents lives (we see them embracing). We see a man holding a sword over an unarmed man (it is implied that the man struck the other man). A flashback shows two groups of people with swords and spears fighting and a man is thrown over a cliff (we do not see the result but understand that he is dead) and a young boy is thrown to the ground, hitting his head on a rock (he survives). A snowman begins to break apart into snowflakes and says that he fears a woman has died; another woman holds him, crying, as he disintegrates and blows away in a cloud of snowflakes. A woman jumps from a ledge and lands on a frozen pond where she becomes frost-covered and eventually is frozen solid and cannot move.
► A woman wakes sleeping rock giants and they chase her, nearly stomping on her and throwing boulders at her; the boulders hit a dam repeatedly breaking the walls and allowing water to flow through the area and toward a kingdom (the people have been evacuated); the woman nearly falls with the crumbling dam but is pulled to safety by two men. Flames flicker around the branches of trees and through a forest, setting the area on fire and causing people and reindeer to flee; a woman with ice powers creates blasts of ice to put the flames out, another woman tries to reach her and is surrounded, stumbles and is overcome by smoke until a man on a reindeer picks her up and takes her away. Two women argue, one pleads with the other not to take chances with her life, and the other creates an ice boat and pushes the first woman and a snowman into it; the boat slides down a hill and veers off course splashing into a river that passes sleeping rock giants and over a waterfall and eventually the woman and the snowman end up in a dark pit.
► Three people, a snowman and a reindeer are startled by a forest of trees beginning to rustle, one woman grabs an ice sword from a sculpture and two groups of people with swords and weapons appear from among the trees and charge each other until a woman with magical powers knocks them to the ground. Three people, a snowman and a reindeer are swept into a giant tornado funnel cloud and they spin around out of control (one woman says that she is going to be sick and holds her mouth but does not vomit) and later a reindeer seems to gag. People in a village are blown by heavy winds and the bricks in the roadways behave like waves forcing them out and to a ridge above where the ground shakes and rolling trolls appear and one talks about “angry magical spirits.” People are surrounded by flames raging through a forest and a thick cloud of mist rolling through the area. A tiny lizard with flames on its back hides under a rock and then walks into the hand of a woman where we hear sizzling and the flames are extinguished.
► A woman with magical powers stands on a shore and she charges into the raging waves several times being knocked around and thrown back to shore a few times; she is attacked by an ice horse and struggles with it when it tries to push her below the surface, it holds her hand in its mouth and drags her through the water until she creates reins and gets on its back, calming it and riding away unharmed. A man walks toward a thick wall of mist and when he touches it he is thrown back, and a snowman tries the same thing and bounces off several times for fun before a woman breaks through and they are blown by heavy winds into a forest. A snowman is knocked down and thrown around by leaves blowing around him, a hole opening in the ground, flames dancing among the trees around him and boulders falling near him and rolling past him (he is nearly struck but is OK), until he stumbles into a giant footprint. A reindeer is magically held upside down. A fire lizard sets a snowman’s branch hands on fire, but the snowman puts the flames out on his snow-covered body.
► A woman is startled and when she reacts, she creates ice that sticks her hands to a railing; she then breaks free and acts embarrassed. A young girl creates ice and snow with the wave of her hand. A snowman’s head separates from his body, but reattaches normally in a few scenes. A woman makes gestures that resemble that of an angry animal during a game of charades. A snowman is pulled apart by two children; one child sticks the snowman’s carrot nose into his own nostril and laughs, another child’s tongue gets stuck to one of the snowman’s frozen pieces and the other moves to take a bite out of the snowman’s leg, when the snowman says, “You don’t know what I’ve stepped in.”
► Two women argue in several scenes, mostly about one of them taking risks. We hear that he parents of two women are dead and that they died at sea. A lullaby includes an admonishment to dive into a river, but not too far down or you’ll drown. People talk about an “evil spell.” People discuss an enchanted forest. A woman hears a mournful call from a distance in several scenes. A woman, alone sings about losing hope and feeling guilty.
► A reindeer slobbers on a snowman’s branch hand (we see saliva). A young girl and a woman drool while sleeping in a couple of scenes. A reindeer spits out water after drinking from a puddle. A woman snorts and wipes her nose with her hand while crying. A character says, “Turtles can breathe through their [mild anatomical term deleted].”
