Let the Storm Rage On with Disney’s “Frozen”

-by Alexa Lyons and Isabel Griffith-Gorgati-

Frozen is a movie worth melting for. “For the first time in forever,” (a title of one of Frozen’s many songs) Disney has released a movie that will thaw even the iciest of hearts with its warming message of the true power of sisterly love. Disney’s Frozen opened in theaters over Thanksgiving weekend. The movie, based off of Hans Christian Anderson’s “The Snow Queen,” includes Kristen Bell (Gossip Girl, Veronica Mars),  Idina Menzel (RENT, Wicked), and Jonathan Groff (Spring Awakening) as the voices of Anna, Elsa, and Kristoff.  Frozen was nominated for two Golden Globes for Best Animated Feature Film and Best Original Song in a Motion Picture for “Let it Go,” featuring Idina Menzel.

Frozen takes previous Disney stereotypes and turns them on their sleds, reminding viewers that family is more important than a Prince Charming and that love at first sight is really a snowball of sketchiness.

If you’re looking for a great movie to see after vacation, go see Frozen. No one is too old for this movie, or too young. “Frozen touched everyone from my dad to my six-year old brother,” said Josie Simmons ’17. “It’s a great change from destructive death movies” agreed Isabelle Bastian ’17, “When in doubt, just go watch it. It will make you happy.” If you don’t go see Frozen soon, we’ll all freeze to death!
