Disney's Frozen

Disney's Frozen movie cover: Each character faces the viewer; Olaf the snowman is int the center riding a reindeer, To the right is Anna with brown hair and next to her is the Prince wearing a white jacket. To the left of Olaf is Kristoff with his arms crossed and next to him is Elsa in her ice-blue gown"Some people are worth melting for." - Olaf

With catchy songs, adorable one-liners, a winsome snowman, an expressive reindeer, and a hidden villain, this Disney movie is a lot of fun!

As it happens in many fairy tales, the royal family has a member with magical powers. In this story, Elsa was born with the ability to create winter. Snow is all fun and wonder for the princesses, Elsa and Anna, until Elsa accidentally hurts her younger sister with her power. Anna's memory of magic is erased, and Elsa locks herself away in fear. Upon Elsa's coronation as queen, the castle's gates are opened. Unfortunately, neither Elsa nor Anna are prepared to met the world outside their castle.

This Disney movie does not follow the typical Disney plot formula, so expect a few surprises. Frozen spouts the message of familial love and acceptance as well as a more 'modern' look on romantic love. For the youngest viewer, Frozen can be used to teach the simple message of "Stranger Danger."

Frozen gives writing credit to Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen, but, with so many changes to the plot, elements are more sly nods to the traditional tale than directly derived.

 The movie, Frozen, is a great family movie. Pair with Rise of the Guardians for a perfectly 'chilled' double feature event.

For young Frozen fans, be sure to stop in and pick up one of the Frozen picture books and early readers. For older readers, try the traditional Snow Queen to compare it with Frozen.
