My Mom just bought this movie for Christmas and we watched it last night together and it was amazing and sad it was also adorable because of how Joy raised Elsa the cub she was so cute I cried during the midddle and end and laughed during part of it but mostly I cried this is a wonderful movie and also a true story I hope to watch this again and read the book I loved it
