Disney has just released it’s latest Disney Princess movie during the Thanksgiving holiday. Disney’s Frozen is a spectacular 3D animated movie. Frozen stars Idina Menzel as the Snow Queen Elsa, Kristen Bell as Princess Anna, Jonathan Groff as Kristoff, Santinio Fontana as Prince Hans, and Josh Gad as Olaf the snowman.
Not only does Frozen have a box office of $110,633,226 worldwide, but Is considered the best Disney movie since the Disney resonance era. Regardless of the fact that Frozen was put off for 68 years, when Walt Disney couldn’t figure out a way to execute the Snow Queen character, it was picked up again after the success of Disney’s Tangled. The orchestra score was composed by Christophe Beck, and the musical score was composed by the duo Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.
The plot was, despite all previous efforts, very well executed. The characters all have intriguing motives and rather tragic pasts that make you care for them. With a rather big plot twist it is sure to leave all audiences with a “gasp” of horror and shock.
The stunning and beautiful animation worked well with the fantastic and powerful voices. One song in particular catches the audiences attention, Let It Go performed by Idina Menzel’s character Queen Elsa. Seeing Elsa finally release and show her full potential was rather satisfying. Seeing all the characters interact with each other in such a natural way makes them seem real.
Parents and teens might think “yeah, it would be a good movie for kids” before they see it, but one shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover. On the outside, Frozen might look like the next Ice Age movie, but it’s actually the opposite.
In the first commercial, most see a little snowman and a reindeer fighting over a carrot. First impressions are important, and this trailer only gave the impression that this movie would be for little kids, such as Disney’s Planes. But, Frozen is different. Frozen is a great film, that teenagers and adults can enjoy with or without kids. In fact, most audiences can probably relate to any of the characters.
The message Frozen gives is not like the other Princess movies. In order to save herself, Anna must commit an act of true love to thaw her freezing heart, a curse Elsa accidentally and unknowingly put on her sister. She slowly makes her way to have a “true loves kiss”, when she see’s the villain about to murder Elsa, who was imprisoned at the castle. Fearful and worried for her sister, with her last bit of strength, she sacrifices herself. This is an act of true love, and Anna is revived. The message of Frozen is clear. You shouldn’t hold in your problems, and you don’t need to be in a romantic relationship to truly love someone.
With a fantastic score, beautiful character development, and amazing animation, one might think that there has to be something bad about this movie. And, there is. The downside to Disney’s Frozen is clearly that the villain doesn’t get the same punishment or their own song that other Disney villains get. And, most fans can agree, Elsa deserved much more screen time. But regardless, Disney’s Frozen doesn’t disappoint.
I rate this movie 5/5
