  • The musical phenomenon Frozen highlighted the beauty and power of the sister bond. (And gave us all permission to belt out "Let It Go" at the top of our lungs.) Despite grief, loss, crazy ice storms, and not-so-nice princes, Anna and Elsa stuck by each other with a connection that can only be described as magical. With Frozen 2, we get even more sisterly shenanigans. But Elsa and Anna aren't the only sisters out there. For a family movie night or sibling-themed viewing party, take a look at some of our favorite films featuring the bonds of sisterhood.

    Lilo & Stitch

    Before Anna and Elsa, there were Lilo and Nani, Hawaiian sisters who also had to put aside their differences for the sake of their small "ohana" (family). With a sensational soundtrack of Elvis hits, this endearing, beachy movie might even give you a break from "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?"

    My Neighbor Totoro

    Adventurous sisters Satsuki and Mei explore and play together in this delightful anime film from Hiyao Miyazaki. An emphasis on family, independent female characters, and whimsical fantasy elements make this a perfect pick for movie night.

    The Parent Trap

    When separated twins Hallie and Annie reunite at camp, their crafty plan to swap places and get their parents together again leads to funny, frolicking antics. Lindsay Lohan adorably plays both sisters whose psychic connection bridges all kinds of distances.

    Ramona and Beezus

    Based on the beloved children's books by Beverly Cleary, this movie adaptation brings enthusiastic wild child Ramona and her exasperated big sister Beezus to the big screen. Tween and teen favorites Joey King and Selena Gomez play the two sisters with lots of heart and charm. 

    When In Rome

    Just as Anna and Elsa use their unique talents to save the day in Frozen, sisters Charli and Leila use theirs to come to the rescue in this international adventure. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have made countless movies celebrating sisterhood, but this one (as well as It Takes Two) are some of our faves.
