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

Kristen Bell stated that with this film, she has fulfilled a dream that began in her childhood, when she saw The Little Mermaid (1989) and Aladdin (1992): to voice an animated character. When she was around that same age, she recorded a voice box where she sang a couple of songs from The Little Mermaid, including "Part of Your World." Her Little Mermaid vocal tracks were part of the reason why she got the part of Anna, as director Jennifer Lee said to her that if she hadn't recorded her own vocal tracks from Mermaid, it would've been very difficult to the find the right one to play Anna.

Goofs

Several times, the characters refer to Kristoff's vehicle as a "sled". Kristoff's vehicle is called a "sleigh" - it is pulled by an animal (in this case, by Sven). A "sled" is what kids use to go scooting down the hill after a big snow. See more »

[Anna climbs on the bed and pushes on Elsa]
Young Anna: Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!
Young Elsa: Anna, go back to sleep!
Young Anna: [sighs and rolls around] I just can't! The sky's awake so I'm awake. So we have to play!
Young Elsa: Go play by yourself!

Disney's Most Hackneyed Attempt Ever
14 February 2014 | by DareDevilKidSee all my reviews

Reviewed by: Dare devil Kid (DDK) Rating: 1.5/5 stars

The worst Disney movie of all time, barring none - period. A contrived, manipulative, and trite attempt at being cute, cuddly, and melodramatic. Even the songs (barring one; the superbly rendered "Let it Go" number) - a hallmark of the Disney bastion - seem arbitrary, superfluous, and wantonly composed for lack of a better plot element.

There was a time when Disney could seamlessly pull off the sweet and endearing musical routine without trying too hard. But off late, their recent offerings (excluding the terrific "Wreck it Ralph") desperately seem to be making an effort to induce us into believing that their characters are all too warm, fuzzy and want to perpetually break out into a musical jig for want of a better option.

Disney's last few efforts might have just passed enough muster to be seen, forgiven, and forgotten soon after. Frozen has however, lowered the bar several notches below those easily forgivable and forgettable Disney outings.
