 Disney Frozen Review #DisneyFrozen

When I watched the previews for Disney’s Frozen, I kind of thought “Looks cute, but mehhhh.” I don’t know what it was, but the preview didn’t really grab me.

However, with a Disney movie crazy 3-year-old, I knew I couldn’t say no to an invite to see a sneak peek of Disney’s latest flick. I am so glad I didn’t judge the entire movie by its preview because I would have totally missed out.

For the record, here’s the preview in case you’re interested. Upon watching again, OK, it does look kind of cute. Maybe I was just a harsh judge because I wasn’t that into Brave or Planes and was kind of thinking maybe Disney was losing its magic.

Here’s the synopsis from Disney:

Featuring the voices of Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, “Frozen” is the coolest comedy-adventure ever to hit the big screen. When a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, Anna, a fearless optimist, teams up with extreme mountain man Kristoff and his sidekick reindeer Sven on an epic journey to find Anna’s sister Elsa, the Snow Queen, and put an end to her icy spell. Encountering mystical trolls, a funny snowman named Olaf, Everest-like extremes and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.

THE SCOOP

This movie genuinely floored me. From the seriously incredible 3D animation to the hilarious one-liners — there truly was something for ALL — boys, girls, young, and old.

First, I loved the plot because it involved sisters — something obviously close to me since I have two little girls. Of course, in true Disney fashion, there was love, but it was done with a fun twist in the end, which I loved and appreciated as a gal who constantly is preaching “girl power” over “princess power.” Also, the fact that it took place in Norway was really cool and I love that the Norwegian culture was highlighted throughout the film.

Truth be told, I may have even cried in some weird parts because I’m emotional like that and it’s Disney. Also, I tend to cry when I’m really moved by something. In this case, it was the music, which was stellar. Like, I am going to rock out in my car to every single song. I’m thankful I have kids and drive a minivan, so I have an excuse to jam to Disney, but I want the music for ME. Anyone who is a musical theater nerd like me is sure to enjoy it. {Kristen Bell AND Idina Menzel are two Broadway stars after all!}

When we were getting out of the theater, I heard a woman say “That was the best Disney movie since The Lion King.” Honestly, lady, I agree…Way to go, Disney! And way to redeem yourself after a few “meh” movies {in my humble opinion}.

If you love Disney movies, head out to see this in the theater. It is definitely worth the money to see the animation on the big screen!

BONUS: There’s a super cute Mickey short at the start of the film that makes the theater experience even more worth it.

I received complimentary passes in exchange for my post on the movie. Of course I accepted…I have a 3-year-old! All thoughts expressed belong to me.

Are you planning to see Frozen? ENJOY :D

  1. Nice review, mine is up as well. I agree with you – I think this is the best Disney film I’ve seen in a while … maybe not since Lion King though! :P

    I wasn’t a huge fan of Brave or Planes either, I’ll say I liked Planes a little more. The 3D in Brave was awful too and this 3D was really good.

      I’m trying to think of the most memorable ones since Lion King. I did enjoy Tangled, but other than that, it has just seemed like OK films. Cute, but not stellar, you know? Glad you agree on Brave! I loved the idea of it, but the plot was just not written that well in my opinion. I’m a tough critic ;) Glad this one was so fun!

      Off to read your thoughts :D

      • I liked Tangled as well, the songs were hilarious – “don’t be a dummy, listen to your mummy!” – etc. I think that was really the first Disney movie where the princesses start to save themselves, too. :)

      • We saw it this morning since we missed the screenings. My daughter was determined to see the 2D show and wouldn’t go to the 3D. We definitely enjoyed this movie…well done with the comedy & the independent princess. I just posted my review.

        Also not a big fan of Brave. I thought they really underutilized her brothers for comedic effect. Planes was ok, but nothing spectacular.

        BTW Liz, I love the Tangled Music – don’t forget “I Have a Dream”. Not sure the music in Frozen grabbed me the same way.

  2. I’m itching to take H to his first movie…maybe this will be the one (especially with a Mickey short to entice him!)

    • Mrs. Weber says:

      Awww, it’s SUCH a good movie! And I know you will love the music — it’s awesome :)

      If he sits still at home for a movie, I am sure he’ll sit in the theater. Just may also need popcorn to entice him! Also, may want to just see it in 2D if you don’t think he’ll keep the glasses on (Kinley did take hers off periodically). Have fun! Miss you!
