A captivating spin-off maybe, involving a minor character on their very own side-quest? It definitely gained’t have crossed anybody’s minds at any stage that sleep-deprived dad and mom desperately in search of all issues Frozen-related may spot this as an alternative and suppose: “It’ll do.” Sadly, it gained’t.

That is a part of the Egg Film/Huevos franchise from Mexican studio Huevocartoon, and the plot of this newest one considerations a cute child polar bear, stolen from his dad and mom and his icy dwelling by a trio of kind-of pirates-slash-circus-folk.
