Anna’s sister, Elsa, has isolated herself for a long time. In fact, she’s barely seen the girl at all since they were children. After their parents die, Elsa is set to be crowned queen of their land, which leads to a necessary coronation party. During the celebration, Anna is faced with the big reveal of her sister’s problem.

People are talking about “Frozen” a lot, and there’s a very good reason for that. Not only did Disney put out a wonderful movie, but they also reinvented the wheel a little bit. When you think about it, it’s pretty easy to predict Disney movies. They’re safe, comforting, always have a happy ending; the beast turns back into a man, sleeping beauty is awakened by a true love’s kiss and Simba takes his ‘throne.’ Frozen explores some other roads stories like this could take. Although there is obviously a love story wrapped up within the major plot, the movie doesn’t rely on it as much as others have in the past. Much like “Brave,” Disney uses “Frozen” to break some of the biggest ‘rules’ it has created for itself over the years.

I found the main character more relatable than most of the movies Disney has put out and I loved the strange twists and turns that were hidden in the plot. A magical snowman, tiny trolls and a bright reindeer fulfill the cuteness quota and the music is upbeat and enchanting. The only issue I really had was that the lyrics of the songs did become a bit repetitive at times. I feel like there were probably ways for them to get around that.

The movie was adorable and the story was solid. It’s something both kids and adults can enjoy together.

Overall Opinion – 4.5/5
