Does Frozen 2 Have a Post-Credits Scene?

Does Frozen 2 Have a Post-Credits Scene?

Marvel movies have changed the way we watch films. From the days of rushing out as soon as the end credits roll to sticking around until they’re finished in the hopes of seeing a little something extra, the superheroes of the MCU have made post-credits sequences the norm. So we shouldn’t be too surprised then that Disney’s icy-superpowered princess franchise Frozen has taken up that tradition – -beginning with the first film and now continued in Frozen 2 — by featuring humorous stingers of its own. Although Frozen 2’s post-credits scene doesn’t do too much to add to the lore or hint at a future film — the movie itself definitely delivers on both those fronts — it’s a fun nod to one of the movie’s most entertaining and laugh-out-loud sequences.

10 Movies Streaming On Disney+ That Look Suggestive But We Swear They're Perfectly Innocent

10 Movies Streaming On Disney+ That Look Suggestive But We Swear They're Perfectly Innocent

All available on Disney+Disney+ has arrived, and I could not be any more excited. The latest streaming service offers up so many movies and TV shows, and there are plenty of things on there you’ve probably never even heard of. There’s a whole section of movies that just aired on the Disney Channel and never saw a theatrical release.You can spend days going through all the material on the service trying to watch the entirety of Star Wars in chronological order or the many TV shows from your childhood you’ve missed.However, according to the person that assigned this write-up to me, some of these movie titles are suggestive in nature. Frankly, I don’t see it because I don’t have a dirty mind, but I have been reassured that many of these movie titles could have a second meaning.So digging through all the movies available to watch right now on Disney+, here are 10 movies which some people think are suggestive in some way. Again, I don’t know why because these titles seem perfectly normal to me. The Black HoleAlright, first one. The Black Hole… What’s suggestive about that? It’s simply a movie I’ve written about time and time again on GameSpot. It’s a movie about an exploratory ship finding a stranded ship, orbiting a black hole in space. Do people find orbiting suggestive? Anyway, there’s a mad scientist with evil “robots,” and the heroes have to stop him.I see nothing suggestive or provocative about this title. I mean, science and space exploration are sexy, but not in that way. Now You See It…Here’s a movie I am not familiar with. It’s called Now You See It… I assume it’s about magic, America’s favorite pastime. The movie is apparently about a TV show producer–who is like 16 years old–who is casting a new reality show to find the world’s best kid magician. However, what she finds is a great friend.I guess what makes this title so suggestive is “It.” I’ve now read the synopsis and watched a trailer for the movie, and it’s pretty obvious that “It” refers both to magic as well as friendship. What I don’t see is why this movie title is allegedly suggestive. Once Upon A MattressAhh yes, the American mattress. It’s my favorite place to lay down when I’m tired. Originally, this was an episode of The Wonderful World of Disney. Starring Carol Burnett, Tracey Ullman,…
