Disney’s “Frozen”: Movie Review

Disney’s “Frozen” follows the story of not one but two princesses. Elsa (Idina Menzel) is born with the power to create both ice and snow. A beautiful but dangerous gift that she fights to keep hidden from the rest of the world. After nearly killing her sister Anna (Kristen Bell), Elsa isolates herself, spending all of her time trying to find a way to suppress her growing abilities. Her emotions however, find a way to get the best of her triggering the magic that accidentally sets off the Kingdom of Arendelle in an eternal winter. She flees the land in fear of becoming a monster and causing harm to everyone around her. Anna then sets off on a journey to bring her sister back and save the kingdom while teaming up with those she meets on the way –  Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), a rugged man who sells ice for a living (and is not currently working in the best market) alongside Sven his trusty Reindeer and a snowman named Olaf (Josh Gad). Together they battle the elements of the cold in an attempt to bring Arendelle back to it’s warm, summery demeanour.

Some songs on the soundtrack are definitely better than others. Partially because of the second-hand embarrassment, cheesy lines that are thrown in. But hey, it’s a Disney movie. What did you expect? My favourite song from the film is actually played in the credits. It’s Demi Lovato’s version of Let It Go however, you can hear Idina Menzel’s version in the actual movie.

I might be biased as someone who loves almost everything Disney related but I absolutely adored this movie. It’s a great family movie that the kids will enjoy (at any age cause here I am at 19). And go into it with that mindset, that it’s a movie for families and kids and I can guarantee that you’ll love it just as much as I did.

If you would like to know any spoilers from the film please feel free to contact me.

Frozen hits theatres American Thanksgiving Weekend on November 27th 2013.

    • There were young boys in the theatre today when I saw it and you could hear them laughing along at the funny parts. All children are different in their likes and dislikes so I can’t say for a fact that they’ll love or hate the film. In a sense it’s very similar to the majority of Disney princess movies; Tangled, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast etc. If they’ve ever seen those ones and didn’t throw a temper tantrum I don’t see them doing so in this movie. But you can take a look at the trailer which has been posted above and there’s even more preview clips on Youtube that may help you figure out if your kids would enjoy it (they’d definitely like Olaf the snowman). I hope this helps. If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

      • Aww shoot! I heard Santino Fontana was playing Hans and I got super excited; I am super excited. In an interview he did he explained that Hans was more than a Disney prince and I started to wonder if he was the villain. Thanks!

    • Sure!

      When the castle doors open for the first time in forever (as Anna sings), she runs into Hans a handsome prince from another Kingdom. After learning how much they have in common they decide they want to get married, this is the same day they met might I remind you. Anna takes her fiancé with her to tell Elsa who claims that she won’t bless the relationship. This is what causes the fight to happen where Elsa freezes all of Arendelle. When Anna goes after Elsa she meets Kristoff who accompanies her on her journey to bring back her sister. He becomes the second romantic interest in the film.
