Frozen - Disney Puts Sisters before Misters

Finally a Disney Movie that Puts Sisters before Misters

During the first week of Christmas break, my 9-year-old daughter, my sister, my 4-year-old nephew, and myself went to the theater to see Frozen. I had seen the previews and knew the movie was going to be good, but I didn't know how good, until the film was almost over.

Why I was Impressed with Frozen

As a little girl in the 80s and a tween and teen in the 90s, I grew up with Disney princesses that were always saved by a man. In the last few years, I have been impressed with the fact that Disney has created a different type of princess that doesn't need a man to save her (think Mulan, Merida, and a handful of others), but never have I seen a Disney movie that featured one sister saving another.

As the oldest of four sisters and no brothers, I have a special bond with my younger siblings that people without sisters probably don't recognize, and the relationship between the sisters in this movie resonated with me in a way that makes me believe it will someday be a Disney classic.

My Personal Review of Frozen

In the movie, we meet two young sisters, Anna (Kristen Bell) and Elsa (Idina Menzel). The sisters are very close in age and enjoy spending every moment together. The sisters' parents guard their royal children because one of them has a very special gift that others may fear if they knew existed. After a nearly tragic accident, the parents decide that it is no longer safe for the sisters to play together. After their parents' death, the exiled sister continues to isolate herself from her sister until she is forced to come out of hiding.

Shortly after emerging, it is clear that the sisters cannot exist in the same place. In order to protect her sister and herself, the special sister heads to the mountains to live alone. However, the other sister refuses to accept her sister running away and takes off after her. Although there are a few princes in this film, the focus is never on the relationship between one sister and a prince. Instead, the focus is on sisters and how Elsa and Anna were able to make huge sacrifices to take care of each other.

Sisters before Misters

I was lucky enough to watch this film with one of my three younger sisters and I immediately remarked to her that I was impressed with the focus of the movie being on the relationship between the sisters and not the relationship between a sister and a prince.

It's a great positive message for girls who idolize princesses to see that their favorite princess doesn't need a man to save her. Hopefully, Disney will be creating even more movies with independent female princesses that are ready to handle anything that comes their way.

2014 Golden Globe Winner of Best Animated Film

It's not just me that loves this movie. At the 2014 Golden Globes, Frozen was nominated for the Best Animated Film of the year, and won. The Disney film has also received two Academy Award nominations; one for Best Animated Film and the other for Best Original Song.

A Frozen Sequel is Happening!

When the weather gets cold right before the holidays in 2019, it's time to hit the theater. Frozen II debuts November 22, 2019. The whole crew, Anna, Sven, Elsa, Kristoff, and even Olaf are back together again for a brand new adventure.

The kingdom is in trouble. The only way to save Arendale is to find out why Elsa has powers and what the origin of these powers is.

I'd love to know you stopped by. Please feel free to leave a comment below.

      I hate Disney's Frozen with a burning passion.

      Anna and Elsa should've been existed in different worlds in different times of the year. In fact, Anna should've been born into future modern day era.

      Reasons why I couldn't stand the idea of Ingrid (Once Upon A Time) being stuck in some stupid urn nor Elsa being isolated fro the whole entire world by living in the whole entire lonely isolation so f 

      5 years ago

      First of all, Ingrid (Once Upon A Time) shouldn't have to be stuck in the urn in the show, Once Upon A Time. Second of all, Elsa shouldn't have to be forced to live in the whole entire lonely isolation either. If those stupid writers of Once Upon A Time nor the movie, Frozen hadn't trapped Ingrid (Once Upon A Time) in some stupid urn in the show, Once Upon A Time nor made Elsa live in the whole entire lonely isolation in the movie, Frozen either, then Ingrid (Once Upon A Time) would've been there to meet Elsa during Elsa's childbirth, raise Elsa, there for Elsa and especially train Elsa how to control her magical ice powers in the movie, Frozen and in the show, Once Upon A Time. What were those idiotic writers of the show, Once Upon A Time and the movie, Frozen were thinking trapping Ingrid (Once Upon A Time) in some stupid and forcing Elsa live in the whole entire isolation?

      I think it is a great step forward that Disney is making movies where the princess is not always rescued by a man. (Sorry, guys)

      I am not against a the guy saving the princess but I must say that after a while it can get a little tiring and that I really did enjoy the change and twists that were woven through the movie. I also really liked the relationship between the sisters and how close they were, I can relate having two sisters of my own and being really close with them. =) I really enjoyed Frozen a lot and it is on my list of favorite Disney movies most defiantly but I think that I still might like Tangled better.

      I love this film as well. I watched it with my sister and we loved Anna and Elsa - we could relate to their relationship. Its great to have another couple of strong Disney princesses :)

      I can't wait to watch this movie. I'm so fed up with all those knights riding white horses and saving helpless princesses...

      I agree with your review, we went as a family and my oldest daughter had aslo comment on the fact that the movie focused on the sisters, which is a great message to send out to all those siblings.

      @sousababy: I absolutely, agree. My daughter is an only child and I have been working on building her independence and self-esteem since she was a little girl. I don't want her to be dependent on a man....ever. I hope to see more movies from Disney with this type of theme.

      Bravo Disney - finally an empowering movie that doesn't portray females as "damsels in distress." I've often felt that we do our daughters some injustice by telling them stories where they constantly are rescued by a male figure. (It keeps females believing they are victims). Okay, I rambled . . sorry.But yay, we're heading in a healthy direction with movies like this for kids.
