Frozen, starring Kristen Bell, Broadway’s own Idina Menzel and Glee’s Johnathon Groff, is a chilly, animated tale of family, love and the importance of being who you are. Anna, a fearless princess who with the help of some friends including a reindeer and snowman, searches for her sister Elsa who has cast an icy spell on the kingdom.
All the actors provided all their own singing voices as well as characters, and surprisingly Kristen Bell can sing! Josh Gad was a wonderful surprise playing Olaf, the snowman. He brings such unbridled joy and excitement to the little snowman, you cannot help but smile every time he is on screen.
This is film is great for the whole family, with jokes about falling in love or about what happens when snow meets the sun, everyone is guaranteed a laugh. Now as with any Disney film, there is a theme and for Frozen — love can melt even the coldest hearts. But as it is more about family, this film has more substance than most. With swirling melodies and grand numbers, Frozen pays homage to the older Disney classics like Beauty and the Beast.
Far different from Tangled, which only had a few songs to recall, Frozen has beautiful lyrics and child friendly songs such as “Do You Want To Build A Snowman?” Landscapes covered in ice and snow, and likable characters provide a beautiful back drop for a true heartfelt family film.
