Disney's 'Frozen' thaws winter with powerful message

See also

Disney has done it again. "Frozen," the newest animated adventure from Walt Disney Pictures was released last week and became a success at the box office and with viewer's everywhere. The story is based on "The Snow Queen" by Hans Christian Andersen and was released on November 27, 2013 after being in production since 2011.

The story follows sisters Elsa (Idina Menzel) and Anna (Kristen Bell) who are the princesses of a wintery kingdom called Arendelle. Elsa has the ability to create winter with her hands, but one day her power injuries Anna and afterwards the two sisters grow apart. Elsa manages to keep her magic a secret until her coronation, when the Duke of Weselton (Alan Tudyk) orders her captured. Elsa flees to the mountain and Anna follows.

With the help of an ice trader named Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), his reindeer Sven, and a friendly snowman named Olaf (Josh Gad), Anna sets off to find Elsa and bring her home. Olaf and Sven provide plenty of comedy while the characters avoid trolls and the evil snow monster Marshmallow while they try to save the kingdom from eternal winter. There is also a romantic subplot in the film involving Anna and Prince Hans (Santino Fontana), who want to marry immediately after meeting and has a surprising outcome.

The film is in the vein of the classic Disney films with terrific songs with important messages and a relevant and helpful moral to the story. The animation is very well done and compliments the story and characters in a unique way. "Frozen" has just the right amount of comedy, drama, music and adventure. This is another infinitely watchable film for the whole family.
