Princess sisters, Anna & Elsa, are the best of friends as children. Elsa has the power to create snow and ice. As they grow older, they grow apart due to Elsa’s power. Elsa puts her kingdom into a deep freeze and it is up to Anna to try and make things right.
I finally got a chance to see Frozen! I don’t mind seeing a film by myself but when it comes to kid films, I prefer not to. I was worried that all the hype surrounding the movie would leave me disappointed but that didn’t happen. I loved Frozen and was glad to see it wasn’t your ordinary princess Disney film. The creators put a nice spin on the classic tale, the Snow Queen.
There was great voice work from Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars, House of Lies) as Anna and Idina Menzel (Wicked on Broadway) as Elsa. The songs were great and I’m routing for “Let it Go” to win an Oscar. I’m sure I can speak for everyone when I say the best character was Olaf voiced by Josh Gad (1600 Penn, Love & Other Drugs). His character stole every scene he was in and I hope to see more of Olaf in the future.
The animation was spectacular and I can’t imagine how hard it was for the animators to build all the snow. Disney had been in the shadow of Pixar for a long time but it seems that they are finally creeping up to them. Frozen may seem like it’s just for young girls but there is something in there for everyone to enjoy. I’m a 25 year old guy and I loved it.
Frozen took a much different path from other Disney Princess stories. It has made an absurd amount of money so far and will be a guaranteed Disney Classic. You will be seeing these characters for years to come. I definitely recommend Frozen for all ages.
