Disney’s Frozen Review – The Magic Is In The Ice
Ready to jump into another incredible Disney adventure? Here comes Frozen, Disney’s new animated film that is sure to take you into a new magical world and bring you happiness for the Holidays.
Fozen follows two sisters, Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) and Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), who grew up secluded from each other after an accident involving Elsa’s powers (she controls ice). However, Elsa’s coronation forces her to come out of her room and face the public for one day. Unfortuantely, things go wrong and when Elsa’s powers are discovered, she puts the kingdom of Arendelle into an eternal winter. And that’s where Anna’s quest to find her sister and put a stop to the winter begins.
Along her journey, she also meets some allies that will help her, including Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven, and a sweet and innocent snowman named Olaf (voice of Josh Gad).
If you saw the video I made about Frozen after seeing some of the footage from the film, then you know how excited I was about it even before seeing the whole movie. And now that I have seen the entire film, I can tell you that the excitement was completely justified.
Disney’s previous film Tangled was such an incredible surprise and joy to watch and they have done it again with Frozen and better.
The story, written by Jennifer Lee (“Wreck-It Ralph”), is your typical journey of growth, courage, acceptance, hope and love, yet feels new in some way. While there are no big surprises for those familiar with Disney movies, it still manages to tug at your heart in the truest way. And the best part is that while it’s quite possible you might shed some tears, it will also make you laugh out loud.
The voice cast is incredible, which is not really surprising when you get the likes of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad. Not only to they bring the characters to life, but the musical performances are really haunting, especially Elsa’ “Let It Go.” Paired with the stunning visuals, that one is hard to forget.
Speaking of visuals, animated films get better and better each year, and with Frozen, Disney once again brings us a visual dessert unlike any other. The details and realism brought to the snow and ice is outstanding, I almost wish I could make snow angels in that snow! As for Elsa’s ice castle, well it’s simply stunning!
Needless to say, I absolutely loved it. And to me this is the perfect movie for this Thanksgiving to enjoy with the entire family, it will without a doubt put everyone in a good mood (unless they hate Disney’s animated films, in which case, you’re on your own).
Finally, I leave you with two final words: Baby Sven!!! (If that’s not an endorsement I don’t know what is.)
Frozen is now out in theaters in 3D. You can watch the trailer below and you can also find out more about the making of the film here.
