Synopsis of Disney’s Frozen:
This movie is about Anna, a fearless and optimistic princess, who must go on an adventure to find her sister, Elsa. Elsa has icy powers that have imprisoned the kingdom of Arendelle in a state of eternal winter. Anna aligns herself with a mountain man named Kristoff, his reindeer, Sven, and a funny snowman named Olaf, to go up against the elements to save Arendelle.
My Impressions of Disney’s Frozen:
Fellow movie viewers, let me tell you Disney’s Frozen was not at all what I was expecting. Frozen was a beautiful kooky funny surprise! I thought it was going to run the course that many of the other Disney princess movies have done, where the princesses meet their guy, have an adventure, then fall in love. Well, in Frozen, Princess Anna does all of these things, but I felt I was also able to see her as a more complex character. She’s idealistic, funny, a little nutty, and brave. It was a lot of fun to watch her whenever she was on the screen.
Another aspect of the film I really enjoyed was the beauty of the animation. It was breath-taking! It really was done well from the first screen viewers saw until the credits started rolling. You could tell the care the animators put into everything from the backgrounds to the characters themselves. It was one of the best looking 3D animated movies I have seen in a long time.
One aspect of the movie I found a bit annoying was Olaf. I understand he is supposed to be a bit naive, but there were some things that Olaf did or said that made me just shake my head and put my head in my hands in annoyance. There were also a few awkward points in the movie when the characters were getting ready to sing songs. At these moments, I cringed a bit, but maybe I am being a bit picky about this…
Overall, Disney’s Frozen is one that the whole family can enjoy. The animation was amazing, the songs were performed really well by the voice actors, and it was a fun time had by both parents and kids. I would definitely see Frozen again at the theatre!
What Parents Should Look Out For in Disney’s Frozen:
• A few fight scenes in this film can be an intense for younger viewers
• There are some suggestive words and phrases that are in that questionable gray area of not kid-friendly (my twelve year-old asked about a few things I explained to her at home)
• Kissing…just two scenes!

My Rating of Disney’s Frozen
– 4 out of 5. I really liked it, and I foresee Oscar nominations for Best Animated Film and Best Song for Let It Go!, sung by Idina Menzel in the film.
