Frozen turned out to be better than I expected. It's a tale of two sisters, Elsa and Anna, who are princesses in the kingdom of Arendelle. Elsa was born with a special power: she has the ability to create ice and snow. This special power could be seen as a blessing (she can create most spectacular ice sculptures or wonderful fluffy white snow just by waving her hands) or a curse (whatever she touches with her bare hands becomes frozen). When her icy power traps her kingdom in frozen condition during summer and she flees, Anna teams up with an ice salesman, Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven to find Elsa, hoping to convince her to help their beloved kingdom. Along the way, they meet a funny, friendly snowman named Olaf. My family and I really enjoyed this movie. We laughed out loud quite a bit. We also love the music and songs in Frozen. Remarkable animation! I'm glad that the movie does not put much emphasis on magic but instead, it focuses on love vs. fear. True love is sacrificial love. Fear freezes and isolates us while love frees and bonds us. The film highlights the beautiful relationship between sisters! We definitely want to get a DVD of this one to add to our Disney collections :)!
