Disney’s Frozen Melts Hearts

Loren Lee, Staff Writer

   The animated fairy tale Frozen, directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, has taken the limelight for cinemas this winter– a must see for audiences of all ages.

   In this fantasy-comedy, Anna, a brave princess voiced by Kristen Bell, sets off on an epic journey with a sturdy mountain man named Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven to save the kingdom of Arendelle. Anna’s sister Elsa, or the “Snow Queen,” voiced by Idina Menzel, comes off as arrogant and imperial, but in reality, lives fearfully as her beautiful yet dangerous ability to create ice haunts her.While making their way to find Elsa, the three encounter Olaf, a friendly snowman voiced by Josh Gad, who guides them toward Elsa’s ice palace. Her magic nearly kills Anna and as a result, Elsa isolates herself as she tries to control her overwhelming powers.

   As the movie’s story progresses, Elsa’s mound of emotions trigger an eternal winter that she cannot stop. She worries she is becoming a monster and that nobody, not even her sister, has the ability to help her. Leigh Tuisalo’o (11) says, “I thought the movie was going to be dumb, but it ended up being really cute.” Brian Jeon (12) states, “The main reason why I watched Frozen was because my little sister wanted to watch it, but I think I enjoyed the movie more than her!”

   In contrast to Tuisalo’o and Jeon, Francesca Oh (9) “thought the movie was not as good as [she] expected, but Olaf is such an adorable character.”

   Watching Frozen, a spirited musical film, is the perfect way to spend time with family and friends during the holidays. This heart-warming movie will definitely keep its viewers warm throughout the cold winter season.
