Was the theatre full of kindergartners? Yes. Did I cry? Maybe…No…Umm…Yes…Yes, I did cry. Frozen was fantastic and one of the best Disney movies I’ve seen in awhile. Of course it follows the typical princessy story with one of the main characters eventually falling in love, but Frozen has an interesting sisterly rivalry that adds some dimension to the typical Disney tale.
Frozen follows sisters Anna and Elsa who have recently lost their parents. Elsa, the elder sister, has the ability to freeze anything (hence ‘Frozen’). Elsa pushes Anna away, becomes a ‘snow’ queen, has a minor breakdown and leaves the kingdom to create her own frozen oasis. Anna takes off after Elsa and meets a host of characters on her journey to bring her sister back. Anna’s comrades include Kristoff (hello mountain man), Sven (a reindeer) and Olaf (the sassy-talking snowman). Olaf is by far the best character and has a hilarious song-and-dance number about summertime (he doesn’t realize he’ll melt). I was a bit hesitant at first about Olaf, but how can you not like a lovable frozen friend? No offense to Olaf, but the ultimate star of Frozen was Idina Menzel who voiced Elsa. Her stellar vocals brought songs like Let it Go and Do You Want to Build a Snowman to life. If you’re in the mood for some syrupy sweet Disney goodness, go see Frozen with a bunch of 7-year-olds like I did.
