Now I turn around and find I am lost in the woods

Oh, hey, so we did do something recently. We went to a movie. Yes, another one. We've made it to three movies in-theater this year and that's a pretty good record for us. We wanted to see Frozen II before it left theaters. We got there earlier than we expected, giving us choice seats in a nearly empty theater, but that's all right. We had hoped to see whatever short went with the picture, but there was none. We don't know if this was something like Coco, where we waited to see the movie long enough that the theaters stopped showing the sort. Or whether there was never a short. Unfortunately there is literally no way to find information about a recently-released, widely-seen major-studio movie still in first-run theaters.

Anyway, to the movie.
