Disney’s animated musical film Frozen is fun, thoughtful and beautifully-made. Check out our Kidzworld review of this new Disney classic.

By: Lynn Barker

Anna’s magical sister Elsa, who has been cold to Anna for years, is suddenly crowned queen of the kingdom and her powers are wrecking everything. She forbids Anna’s budding new relationship with a hot prince and literally freezes the entire area in the middle of summer. It’s up to Anna to save the day. Is she up to the task when everything is…Frozen?

Childhood

In the mythical Nordic kingdom of Arendelle, young princesses Anna (Kristen Bell) and Elsa (Idina Menzel) play and wish for snow. Elsa magically makes it happen… indoors! The slippery snow results in a fall for Anna making Elsa and her parents fear that her powers will hurt her little sis. The girls are kept separate from then on.

Coronation

When the girls are young ladies, Elsa is being crowned queen and Anna meets cute prince Hans (Santino Fontana) who arrives for the coronation. All seems A-Okay in Arendelle until Elsa’s powers take over causing her to flee and leaving the summer kingdom in icy lockdown.

The Quest

Feeling that she helped drive her sister away, Anna leaves Hans in charge and sets out to find and bring her back. On the way, Anna meets handsome mountain man Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) who, along with reindeer pal Sven, helps her on her quest. They are joined by enchanted childhood snowman Olaf (Josh Gad) who is constantly optimistic. Back home, Hans tries to run the kingdom, dealing with the tricky Duke of Weselton (Alan Tudyk) who wants Arendelle’s riches for himself.

After many adventures, learning magical secrets from Kristoff’s buddies the rock trolls and facing a fearsome giant show and ice creature, Anna reunites with Elsa. Will this result in a thawed-out kingdom and happiness for all?

Wrapping Up

Frozen offers a very entertaining and satisfying spin on the Hans Christian Anderson “Snow Queen” fairy tale classic. Voice actors do amazing work and the musical numbers are show quality with Broadway veterans like Idina Menzel (wicked witch Elphaba in “Wicked”) and Josh Gad (star of Broadway’s “Book of Mormon”) as well as actress Kristen Bell who started her career in musical theater, belting out power ballads and sweet, humorous tunes that are well-matched to the story.

There are more plot twists than many Disney animated films and these make Frozen more involving for adults as well as kids and teens. The Anna character is very “human” and goofy at times, making it easy to relate to her. Sister Elsa, although causing chaos, isn’t the typical evil Disney villain. Very refreshing all around. The theme of love conquering fear and the principle of personal sacrifice for others will warm the most frozen heart.

Disney really pulled out the stops on their detailed animation in the film, creating new software just to make the snow look more “real”.  The result actually makes you feel that the temperature in the theater has dropped by several degrees. Costumes are colorful and beautiful and cute snowman Olaf and reindeer Sven will make great stocking stuffer plush gifts this holiday season.

Also in theaters with Frozen is the delightful short animated film Get a Horse which makes the most of classic-style Disney animation (think early Mickey Mouse B&W shorts) blended with a modern, color spin that works really well in 3D especially.

Although I thought at times that snowman Olaf made the story a little too “cutesy”, I’ll still go 5 stars for this well-crafted new Disney classic.
