“Frozen” is the coolest comedy-adventure ever to hit the big screen. When a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, Anna, a fearless optimist, teams up with extreme mountain man Kristoff and his sidekick reindeer Sven on an epic journey to find Anna’s sister Elsa, the Snow Queen, and put an end too her icy spell.
Encountering mystical trolls, a funny snowman named Olaf, Everest-like extremes and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.
The film story is very well done mixed with the great music by the wonderful broadway team of Kristen Anderson-Lopez who has worked on â€œIn Transitâ€ and Robert Lopez who have worked on the musical â€œAvenue Qâ€ and â€œThe Book of Mormonâ€ did an amazing job. The music bring the film into the legendary films of the Disney past and most recent classics as the Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.
The voice talent was superb with Kristen Bell playing Anna and Indina Menzel playing Elsa in the film. The development of the sisters story was well written and very heartfelt in classic Disney fashion. The character that is already becoming one of the most beloved in the film is the snowman of Olaf voiced by Josh Gad who was on Broadway in the â€œBook of Mormon.â€ The snowman is fun and the odd part of him wanting to know what the experience of summer with a great and fun song â€œIn Summerâ€ that is makes you laugh for the hole song for the young and the young and heart.
Overall, Frozen is such a great animated film that continues in the tradition of all the great animated films of the past. It has topics and issues that will keep adults and parents entertained as well as children. Easily you can see Disney being able to take this animated classic and one day be seen on the Broadway stage. As any good Disney film the story is key and this one the story along with the songs will make you want to see this picture again. You may also catching yourself humming some of the songs such as â€œIn Summerâ€ and â€œLet It Go.â€
This is a must see animated film for the whole family. Disneyâ€™s Frozen is in theaters currently in your area. I do not always recommend 3D films but this film must be seen in 3D to get an experience that will add to the film. Frozen has a run time of 108 min and is rated PG.
