Frozen: Movie Review


What’s not to love about the new animated motion picture from Walt Disney Studios? Like seriously?! Frozen is the newest addition to the Disney empire and is set to make its mark with both adults and children alike if last November’s premier was anything to go by. Out in UK cinemas on the 6th December in 3D, Frozen will make a brilliant Christmas holiday treat for the kids this year, and a perfect stocking filler on dvd next year!

The ever fearless and slightly goofy Anna (voice of Kristen Bell – Heroes and Veronica Mars) sets off on an epic journey and teams up with the socially stunted yet lovable mountain man Kristoff ( voice of Jonathan Groff – Glee’s Jesse St James) and his loyal reindeer Sven – to find her sister Elsa, whose icy powers have left their kingdom in an eternal winter. They face many challenges along the way, not least having to fight it out with a giant snow monster in Everest like conditions with only Olaf the talking snowman to help.

Frozen isn’t your typical boy meets girl story. Yes there is romance but not how and where you would expect it, which was a pleasant surprise. Filled with twists and turns, this story has a stronger message of the importance of family and also that it is never too late to make a fresh start. Having two strong female characters is also refreshing as was the musical score which accompanied them. There were a couple of really memorable songs in the film which are sure to make it onto some Disney compilation albums in years to come and become as classic as Little Mermaid’s ‘Under The Sea’ or The Lion King’s “Hakuna Matata”. Seriously catchy and well written.

I could sing the film’s praises all day, this is possibly the most enjoyable children’s film I’ve watched in a very long time. Instead, I’ll leave you with a clip of Olaf the snowman, singing about Summer….
