“Frozen,” Disney’s newest animated movie, premieres on Nov. 27 and it definitely one to take the whole family to see. With its simple jokes and classic Disney story, its not one that you’ll want to miss.
The movie is set in a sunny mountain village called Arendalle with its royal family in charge. The two princess sisters are the best of friends; the oldest of which, Elsa, has the power to control ice. At first, her power seems extraordinary and amazing, but after a nearly fatal accident one night with her sister Anna, Elsa must live a life of isolation from her family and Arendalle.
Anna can’t remember her sister’s powers after the accident, and grows up estranged from her sister. She can’t figure out why until the day of her coronation as Queen. Elsa loses control of her powers and runs off, leaving Arendalle in a blistering blizzard.
Anna must then go through challenges to persuade Elsa to come back to Arendalle so Elsa can lift the storm. Along the way, she meets friends like the ice salesman Kristoff, his reindeer Sven, and the animate snowman, Olaf.
The movie was loosely inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Snow Queen”. Anderson also was the author of “The Little Mermaid,” another one of Disney’s big hits. “Frozen” was originally meant to be made into a Disney movie in the 1990’s, but was later revived after the success of Tangled in 2011.
The movie’s heartfelt story is enough to make the viewer think of Frozen as an instant Disney classic, and its amazing stereoscopic 3-D graphics make the film pop into real life as if one could touch the snow as it falls from the sky.
The characters of Frozen are, even though set in the past, very relatable and quirky as though they were from the 21st century. The songs peppered throughout the movie are as beautiful and catchy as other Disney songs such as Mulan’s “I’ll Make a Man Out of You”, Toy Story’s “You’ve Got a Friend in Me”, and The Lion King’s “Hakuna Matata”.
As the movie came to an end, the good vibes were circulating throughout the theater, leaving everyonewith their hearts warmed by Disney’s “Frozen.”
