Storyline

Fearless optimist Anna teams up with rugged mountain man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven and sets off on an epic journey 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 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.

Did You Know?

Trivia

Michael Giaimo, the film's art director, is well known for his exuberant art direction for Pocahontas (1995), which was the last time he served as art director at Walt Disney Animation Studios. Frozen (2013) marked his return to the studio after being fired when Home on the Range (2004) was received very poorly by critics and audiences -- it caused massive layoffs and the short-lived demise of traditional animation.

Goofs

After Olaf jumped off the cliff, Princess Anna and Kristoff fell after cutting the rope. Olaf began grabbing Kristoff's feet, fearing they were his own. Kristoff then sat up from under the snow, showing Olaf was sitting on Kristoff's legs. This wouldn't have been possible if Olaf fell before Kristoff. See more »

Some People take things WAY too seriously!
10 August 2014 | by calgal84See all my reviews

This is really a lovely, enjoyable cartoon. And it's just that a lovely, enjoyable cartoon. And basically a fairy tale. One that moms and dads can feel happy to take their children too. Let it be that. Is there anything truly remarkable about it? Probably not. Are the songs particularly inventive or that much different from all the countless other Disney movies? No, not really, but they are catchy and pretty and fit the movie. And the "In Summer" song with the snow man in summer is pretty cute, if not a little jarringly placed! But, catchy.

Having said that, some people on these reviews are taking this way too seriously. Why would you give it one star just because other people liked it enough to give it a 10? Is that too show how much smarter you are than everyone else? It really shows nothing but taking a carton movie too seriously instead of just going with the flow. It's not real. It's not a real story. It's a cartoon fairy tale.

I give it an 8. It's not perfect but I enjoyed it.
