Last weekend I was invited to a media preview of the new Disney animated feature, Frozen. I’ve never done a movie review, and to be honest I don’t think I’m very good at writing these kinds of things. I have a lot of thoughts about movies and TV shows but I often find it difficult to put them into words. But a couple people have asked me what I thought of Frozen, so here it goes (warning – very minor spoilers ahead).
As the title of this post suggests, Frozen wasn’t my favorite. But I love it anyway. The look and feel reminded me a lot of Tangled, which in my opinion was perfect. But this isn’t to say Frozen is a bad movie. It’s very good. But, my standards for Disney animation is so incredibly high, perhaps to an unfair degree, and Frozen just didn’t reach it.
I went into the showing with no awareness of The Snow Queen fairy tale by Hans Christian Anderson. But here’s a little synopsis if you want to read up (no spoilers):
After the kingdom of Arendelle is cast into eternal winter by the powerful Snow Queen Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), her sprightly sister Anna (Kristen Bell) teams up with a rough-hewn mountaineer named Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and his trusty reindeer Sven to break the icy spell.
