Based on the Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen, Frozen is an adventure-comedy that follows Anna (Kristen Bell) on her adventure to find her sister, Elsa (Idina Menzel), who’s frozen the town of Arendelle after her secret of being born with the power of Ice manipulation comes to light on the day of Elsa’s coronation to become Queen after their parents died three years previously.

The story goes that Elsa has been locked away from everyone, including Anna, until she can control her powers. But, instead of being able to control them, she suppresses her powers which hurts her more than helps her in the long run once she is made Queen.

Along the way, Anna must not only figure out what an act of true love is, but she learns who to really trust and who are her true friends. She meets Kristoff (Jonathon Groff) and his trusty sidekick reindeer, Sven, and even meets a friend from her childhood in the form of a snowman who goes by the name of Olaf (Josh Gad).

As a lover of Disney movies: this story was refreshing. The story actually mocks previous Disney movies by Elsa telling Anna that she can’t marry someone she just met in the form of Prince Hans (Santino Fontana), which is actually true and not a mirror of previous Disney movies when the Princesses were concerned. Instead, the story focuses on the love between these two sisters that’s stronger than the love with a stranger.

It’s not my favourite Disney movie, that’s held by Beauty and the Beast, but it’s defiantly in my top ten just because of the story the writers decided to write.
