I have eagerly been anticipating the release of Disney’s Frozen. The little girl in me was excited to meet another Disney Princess. Disney did not disappoint. Disney’s Frozen is a masterpiece from the beginning short to the very last second of the movie. The characters, setting, 3d animation, music, and story were amazing! This is one movie you will NOT want to miss this Christmas season.
An excellent short starts off the movie. At first you think Disney is bringing an old school black and white short back from the archives to introduce it to a new audience. The short is called Get a Horse and the main stars are Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Clarabelle, and Pete. It is pretty amazing what they do with this short. This part alone makes seeing the 3d version of the movie worth the money. It was so funny and amazing! It got the crowd laughing so much! My husband and I researched the short after getting out of the movie and the short is in fact new, not a revised old school short. The animators used special effects to make it look older. They did an excellent job!
The characters are so well developed and each character ties into the story so well. I especially loved seeing how Olaf was introduced and then brought back into the story later. He is very funny and provides much of the comedy in the movie. The character you learn the most about is Anna. I do wish I would of learned a little more about Elsa. I am pretty sure that the girls playing Anna and Elsa at Epcot must of watched the movie in preparation of their role. Anna’s personality at the meet and greet was so similar to her personality in the movie. She is sweet, talkative, fun, and a little awkward. Elsa is caring and afraid. She has a natural born power that she doesn’t know how to control. I found myself crying for her in a couple scenes as she felt hopeless and alone as their parents kept Elsa’s power a secret from Anna.
The scenery in the movie is breathtaking! Beautiful snowy mountains, crystal clear ice designs, and very detailed landscape make the movie amazing. The 3d animation added so much. I felt like I was there and it was snowing in the theater.
Disney’s Frozen is a musical. Almost every scene has a song in it. My favorites were the beginning scene song and Elsa’s song Let it Go. Olaf’s Summer song was hilarious. My least favorite song was the song that Anna and Hans sing together, it seemed a little cheesy to me. I can’t wait to own the Frozen Soundtrack. The music tells the story so beautifully. You could almost “watch” the movie through listening to the movie.
The story is really good. It is a loose, very loose, interpretation of Han Christian Anderson’s a Snow Queen. It is a story about two sisters finding each other, when circumstances pulled them apart. Though there is a romance in the movie it is not the main focus. The romance you do see is more of a plot twist than anything. I am not giving the plot away, but at one point I felt so shocked at the turn in events and was crying. Frozen is not a typical Disney princess movie where a man comes to the rescue and saves the princess, though at one point it does look like that will happen. If I had to pick a theme for the movie it would be love.
Be sure to stay until the VERY END, past all the credits for a final scene that ties up some loose ends of the story. You will need to put your glasses back on.
