My family was invited to a screening in order for me to write my Disney Frozen review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
From the moment I saw the first previews, I knew that Disney’s Frozen was going to be a big hit. And after having had the opportunity to see it with my family a couple of weeks ago, I’m calling that it will soon become a classic. The animation, the songs, the story – it all adds up to amazing.
This was the second movie we had taken Bubbles to see at the theater but this was the first one she was able to stay and watch until the end. Even after sitting in the theater for about thirty minutes prior to the movie starting, she happily sat in her seat for the whole thing, turning away from the screen only occasionally to share a laugh with me. I don’t know how I had forgotten that it was going to be in 3D, but she opted not to wear her glasses and still enjoyed it.
Disney Frozen Review
At it’s center, Disney’s Frozen is about the relationship between sisters. Princesses and sisters Anna and Elsa have always been so close, playing and having fun in their family’s castle. Elsa has a special gift, the ability to create things from snow and ice. Often the sisters would sneak downstairs while their parents slept and skate, slid, and play with the snowman named Olaf that Elsa brought to life for them.
Until one night when Anna’s fearlessness had her jumping faster than Elsa could keep up, and Anna starts to fall. Trying to catch her, Elsa accidentally hits her with a bolt of ice, and Anna ends up on the ground, motionless. Her parents rush them to the trolls to ask for help, which they grant, but as part of the deal they remove Anna’s memories of Elsa’s gift. From that day forward Elsa must keep her powers under wrap, and is kept in her own room, away from Anna.
Anna spends years trying to figure out why her sister has abandoned her, what she has done wrong. Then comes the day of Elsa’s coronation as queen, the first day that the castle gates have been opened to the public since the accident. After a conflict between the two sisters, Elsa’s powers get put on display, and runs from the town, looking for safety.
Though most of the town wants Elsa locked up, Anna can’t let her sister just run off by herself. Together with Kristoff and his adorable reindeer Sven, the make their way up the mountain through the snow and storms to the castle of ice Elsa has created. Will Anna be able to convince her sister to return to town and remove the curse of ice she inadvertently cast over the town?
You’ll have to see the movie to find out! I don’t want to give out any spoilers. You’re going to want to see this movie at least once, anyway. It is visually stunning, the music will make you want to stand up and sing along, and the story is full of heart and humor for every age. In fact, when we left the theater, Bubbles looked up at me and said that she loved and missed her sissy (fortunately classes are almost done and she’ll be home soon!).
The music from Disney’s Frozen is so amazing, we purchased the soundtrack the day it was released. You can get the Deluxe Frozen Soundtrack from Amazon (the digital version is free with the CD, or you can get just the digital version).
