Bec Reviews: Frozen

Frozen-movie-poster

I don’t think it’s any secret that I am a lover of Disney. The Lion King was the first movie I ever saw in cinemas, and it’s still one of my favourites, so it would be fair to say that I went into Frozen with high hopes. To say that my expectations were met would be an understatement, Frozen is the best movie (and definitely the best children’s movie) I have seen in quite some time. Brave is probably the movie that has come closest (I told you I like Disney) but Frozen, in my mind, was a step above.

So what was this step above – a true return to magical, epic, completely addictive and highly sing-along-able Disney music! Think Lion King level of story-telling music; with clever, well written lyrics and tunes you will happily listen to over and over again (or at least I will, I downloaded the album off iTunes and now have it on my laptop, my phone and a CD in my car). Now it’s true that not everyone likes musicals as much as I do, and some people (i.e. the boy) don’t enjoy listen to Disney music on repeat as much as I do – but if you like Disney and/ or musicals it’s fair to say you will LOVE Frozen.

With all of that said, I should probably give you a quick plot summary (no spoilers, promise). Frozen is an animated Disney movie loosely based on the Hans Cristian Andersen fairytale The Snow Queen. It follows the story of Anna (Kristen Bell), Elsa (Idina Menzel), Kristoff, Sven the Reindeer and Olaf the magic, talking snow man. Anna, Kristoff, Sven and ring-in Olaf set off on a quest to bring back Anna’s sister Elsa. Elsa is princess of Arendelle, whose icy powers have accidentally sent Arendelle into an external winter. Adventure ensues, great songs are sung, and a message about what’s really important in life comes across load and clear.

So, if you have seen Frozen yet, I highly recommend it. It’s a fantastic family feel-good film (yes to all the alliteration) that will be loved by kids and adults alike; and has raced it’s way to the top of my favourite Disney movies.
