Monumental Movie Reviews - Disney's Frozen

Updated on June 24, 2014

Review

As a kid who grew up with The Lion King and Aladdin, I am thrilled to say that, finally, the Disney musical has returned triumphant. Not since the days of Mulan (1998), has a Disney musical made such an impression. The songs are so catchy and characters so likeable you'll be coming back for more after each viewing. It's not just me saying this either. Frozen's addictive qualities have been brought kids back to the theater long after the DVD release. Currently Frozen sits at fifth on the list of highest grossing films of all time.


For those of you who haven't seen it, you don't need to have kids. You're doing yourself an injustice if you consider yourself above the child's play of animated films. This movie is a work of art, akin to a performance on Broadway, equally enjoyable by both children and open-minded adults.


The first trailer for this movie painted it as a shallow vehicle for the comic relief characters Olaf (the snowman) and Sven (the reindeer), but in truth they play a minor, background role to a heartfelt plot between two sisters. Elsa, voiced by Broadway actress Idina Menzel of Wicked, struggles with her fears of her icy powers, and Anna (Kristen Bell) tries to save her and the kingdom with her own powers of unbridled optimism.


Frozen brings new twists to classic Disney princess movie tropes. It redefines the nature of “true love” and proves once and for all that a princess doesn't always need a prince to save her. It's groundbreaking, but at the same time comfortably familiar. Any Disney fan will find themselves right at home watching it. You'll laugh, and cry, and sing your heart out like you were six years old again.

      Thanks for your comments guys! I think a lot of what makes Frozen so great is that it was executive produced by John Lasseter, the head of Pixar. Hopefully Disney will allow him to continue holding some creative control in future projects as well.

      Frozen is definitely Disney's redemption. They've produced way too much garbage over the years on their own, and what has been good came out of Pixar's studios.

      Plus, it's good to finally hear a Disney film actually say, "You can't just marry a person you just met." instead of, "OMG! Hi! Let's get married!"
