It's a fact that everyone has a soft spot in their hearts for Disney movies whether they like to admit it or not. I'm not the one to hide my love for Disney movies. Recently, Pixar has been on a roll with their release of memorable hits. But, movies like 'Frozen' show Disney still has some magic left.
'Frozen' tells the story of two sisters, Anna (Kristin Bell) and Elsa (Idina Menzel). The two princesses are very close growing up, but when Elsa's secret power puts Anna and everyone who she loves in danger, Elsa has no choice but to shut out the world and live in isolation. You see, Elsa has the power to create ice, snow, anything winter related with her hands. The problem with her icy powers is that Elsa has no idea how to control her power, which only gets stronger as she gets older. As much as Elsa wants nothing more than to shut out the world around her, Anna longs to experience everything that life has to offer. When an unexpected chain of events during Elsa's coronation risks putting the entire kingdom into an everlasting winter, we are treated to a wonderful adventure of self discovery and love between the two sisters.
I was pleasantly surprised by 'Frozen' and just how much I found myself enjoying the hell out of this movie. I'm just going to put it out there, but I think 'Frozen' will join the ranks of 'The Lion King' and 'Beauty and the Beast' as Disney classics. It's got everything you want in any good Disney movie, catchy tunes (check, 'Do you want to build a snowman...'), memorable character (Olaf), adventure, and you can't leave out a beautiful love story. I dare you to go watch 'Frozen' and not smile or walk out with a warm heart. Because if you don't, you don't have a heart.
