‘Frozen’ warms hearts


Disney’s latest creation has become a huge hit. “Frozen,” the most successful of the company’s animated films since “The Lion King,” touches the hearts of people of all ages with its phenomenal music and its unique storyline.
The entertaining story begins with Princess Elsa (voiced by Idina Menzel), who uses her magic powers to conjure and control ice and snow. As children, Elsa and her little sister, Anna (Kristen Bell), would take advantage of these powers by building and playing with snowmen. After a near-fatal accident, Elsa is forced by her parents to hide her powers from everyone, including Anna, who with the help of trolls is robbed of her memory of her sister’s special talents.
Years pass, and Elsa becomes queen while still having to hide her powers from everyone. The night of her coronation ball, things take a turn for the worse when Anna tries to reach out to her sister after all this time. Elsa’s powers are accidentally revealed to everyone. Feeling scared, she flees the kingdom and in the process turns beautiful summer into an endless winter. Now Anna must find her sister and have her restore the kingdom’s environment with some help from friends she meets along the way, including Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and Olaf the Snowman (Josh Gad).
The movie’s soundtrack also has become a success, topping the Billboard charts. The film’s fantastic musical performances include “Do You Want To Build A Snowman?” performed by Kristen Bell, as Anna sings to Elsa as a way to get her out of her room. There is also the popular song “Let It Go,” performed by Menzel and also released in a alternate version performed by Demi Lovato. The song is performed after Elsa’s powers are revealed and she sings with joy about how she doesn’t have to be scared of her powers anymore.
By far, this movie deserves all the hype. Check it out on DVD.
