Frozen opened in cinemas on Wednesday (November 27). I managed to see it right after work in 3D. As I mentioned in my previous post, it’s one of my 5 upcoming movies I am excited to see. The fact that not only Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel were in it but also Josh Gad and Jonathan Groff. The movie features lots of Broadway stars and writers/directors (Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck)! It has been receiving really good reviews and a possible contender for the Oscars as it continues to do well in the box office too! The movie also just received nominations for Annie Awards which includes Best Animated Feature category. Check out the nominees. So exciting!
It’s been almost a week since I last saw the movie and I have been wanting to watch the movie again or have been listing to the songs on repeat! I really loved the movie which I knew I would! What I loved about the movie the most is the fact that it is different for the general Disney fairytale. It breaks from those norms which is also why the movie has been receiving lots of great reviews! It’s really not a love story between a “prince and princess” but the relationship of two sisters. You pretty much get everything you want from a Disney animated movie and you can see why critics have been comparing it to beloved Disney movies such as Little Mermaid, Beauty and The Beast etc. I really love how Anna and Kristoff’s (voiced by Kristen Bell and Jonathan Groff) relationship develops. I love how Anna is a klutz. Both Anna and Elsa do not need a “prince” to save them. All these characters are relatable and show Elsa trying to find who she is as a person, Anna wanting to help her sister and finding love etc. Josh Gad as Olaf is pretty awesome and his character really does bring the comedy out in the movie even more! I pretty much loved all his songs and his scenes! Some of my favorite songs in the movie include Let It Go, For The First Time In Forever and Do You Want To Build A Summer. My favorite song/scene was Fixer Upper (spoiler: it involves trolls and Anna/Kristoff). It was pretty amazing and hilarioue! I could keep going on and on about how much I love the movie. So, just make sure to go see it! Check out EW’s rank for the 9 original songs from the soundtrack. I still wish Jonathan Groff got to sing something that was more than 51 secs long or at least a duet with Kristen but the fact he sang as Kristoff and as Sven in his little bit was amazing! Even in his scenes where he had to voice both characters. Before Frozen, there is a Disney animated short before the movie on Mickey and Minnie Mouse which was amazing too! See a clip of that below:
