Frozen Ice Castle

Frozen opens today, Nov 27th, and I’m going to tell you about it without spoiling it. To try to manage that trick, I’m not going to give you a blow by blow review. But I will tell you it’s unlike any Disney movie you’ve seen before and you shouldn’t miss it.

Anna and Elsa Ice CastleVisually stunning, the Disney animators have achieved something special. Animation is always labor intensive, but animating ice and snow is strictly for the bold and, as it turns out, cold. Jennifer Lee, co-director, told a group of bloggers including me, that she sent a group of animators to Wyoming to see what walking through snow really looks and feels like.

Without giving too many details about the story, I think I can safely tell you it is unlike any Disney movie you have seen. It’s loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen, but with a decidedly 21st century spin and complexity.

Olaf in SummerThe music is exceptional, with original songs by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the team behind Broadway hit “The Book of Mormon.” Two of my favorites are a song sung by Olaf, a loveable, classic Disney sidekick, called “In Summer,” in which he dreams about a summer vacation, and another is called “Fixer Upper,” which has the vibe and witty lyrics of the best of Broadway.

MarshmallowKristin Bell’s and Idina Menzel’s voices sparkle (read some of what Kristen Bell has to say here), the story is tender and funny and bold and modern and is about unconditional love.

Olaf and Sven

Here’s a trailer so you can get a taste before heading out to the theater.

So, I’m pretty sure I haven’t spoiled it for you, now make sure to see it if you can.

I would never have thought to describe the movie as bold but it really is!

So many great things about Frozen! Can’t wait to take my kids this afternoon!

Frozen was one of those movies that I wanted to see again as soon as the movie ended. I can’t wait to see it with my kids this weekend!
