Final fantasy 7 frozen when camera pans to statue of Red13s father

Core story content required to progress, sounds like a mechanical or disc issue. Bummer bro.
That’s a hell of a scene too. Music just kills me. Still makes me misty eyed.
Can I put in disc 2 and just skip everything? Or would that not work
Nope. Disc 2 for you isn’t for 10 or so hours more of play and progression
Happened to me too on my original version, try it again and when it freezes open the disc tray and close it again it might just load up for you.
Just tried it. Didn’t work
Freezes in FMVs usually mean disc damage.
Hold the disc up to a light. If you see any small holes, that's permanent damage. Label side scratches can also be irreversible damage; on a CD the data is just under the label. Read side scratches and dirt can often be cleaned and polished.
You may be able to bypass it by swapping discs and a different FMV will play.
It is now not hard to hack your PS2 to play copied discs, if you need to.
I tried swapping discs. Still stuck.
Hey I posted pictures of the disc to Imgur. https://imgur.com/a/r89VVui does it look damaged or dirty? If so how can I clean it?
The read side looks rather scratched. Try getting a CD cleaning kit.
I think [this](https://i.imgur.com/vRvp5JD.png) is your culprit, that looks like damage to me.
