Walt Disney Pictures’animated movie, Frozen, is directed by Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck. The film features the voices of Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel and was released on November 2013.
The story is about the Kingdom of Arendelle’s Princesses – sisters Anna and Elsa. Elsa, the eldest sister who was born with magical powers, has willfully locked herself inside her room for years after she accidentally hurt her sister when they were little. Anna, however, does not remember the accident or her sister having powers because her memory was altered. Due to Elsa’s fear of not being able to control her power and of other people knowing her capabilities, she has stayed in her room until she was 21years old – the age where she may now be crowned as the kingdom’s queen following the death of her parents 3 years before. An unfortunate incident erupted after her coronation due to an argument with her sister wanting to marry a guy she just met. The argument with her sister made her unable to control her emotion and accidentally revealed her powers to guests. Panicked and frightened Elsa flees and secludes herself in a mountain – leaving her kingdom trapped in eternal winter. Anna then sets off on a journey to find her sister and save the kingdom with the help of a mountain man, his reindeer and a snowman.
Viewers were delighted to see a non-traditional princess-themed Disney movie, which was seen in Frozen. The storyline captivated the viewers as it gave a great, modern-day lesson about true love. Traditional princess-themed movies that Disney made was more about romance and a princess being saved by a prince who she’s destined to marry and “live happily ever after”. Frozen, sets itself apart and gave a different take on that. This was emphasized in a scene, prior to their argument, where Elsa said to Anna that: “You can’t marry a guy you just met”. Many viewers, especially parents, were pleased with how the story was more centered on family and sisterly love. Most of the viewers said it was a great example to give to children these days.
