The magically long-haired Rapunzel has spent her entire life in a tower, but now that a runaway thief has stumbled upon her, she is about to discover the world for the first time, and who she really is.
Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse.
When Gru, the world's most super-bad turned super-dad has been recruited by a team of officials to stop lethal muscle and a host of Gru's own, He has to fight back with new gadgetry, cars, and more minion madness.
Anna, a fearless optimist, sets off on an epic journey - teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven - to find her sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom. From the outside Anna's sister, Elsa looks poised, regal and reserved, but in reality, she lives in fear as she wrestles with a mighty secret-she was born with the power to create ice and snow. It's a beautiful ability, but also extremely dangerous. Haunted by the moment her magic nearly killed her younger sister Anna, Elsa has isolated herself, spending every waking minute trying to suppress her growing powers. Her mounting emotions trigger the magic, accidentally setting off an eternal winter that she can't stop. She fears she's becoming a monster and that no one, not even her sister, can help her.

In February 2016 Disney Theatrical Productions announced that "Frozen" will join "The Lion King" and "Aladdin" on Broadway in Spring 2018. A pre-Broadway try out for "Frozen" is scheduled at Denver Center for the Performing Arts in August 2017. See more »
In "Let it Go", after Elsa releases her cloak, an overhead shot shows she's about 30 feet short of a gap, walking forwards, on a flat expanse of snow. She then keeps moving towards it while singing in closeup (which would have taken her right up to the edge). She then runs forwards in a wide shot, but instead of falling off the edge she should be right next to, she runs up over a hill that appears from nowhere, before she creates the steps to bridge the gap.

Would you believe that Amy Goodman played "Let It Go" when she interviewed George Takei?
OK, so "Frozen"'s basic premise is encapsulated in Elsa's song "Let It Go", the song that's pretty much been the anthem of the past few months. To be certain, the song made an appearance on "Democracy Now!" during one of the interludes during Amy Goodman's interview with George Takei. Yes, I never thought that it would happen, but a Disney song actually appeared on the most no-nonsense show in media.
As for the movie itself, I didn't find it to be a masterpiece, but it's OK. The theme of getting forced to hide something about oneself for fear of getting considered "unnatural" but then deciding to stop living the lie is a good message. I understand that Elsa and Anna have drawn criticism for having eyes that are bigger than their wrists. Not surprisingly, the main song has made the religious nuts claim that the movie promotes the "gay agenda". It seems to me that people who see the "gay agenda" everywhere are deliberately looking for it, as if they want some of it. Anyway, it's not a bad movie.
