Frozen is an animated fairy tale story that has been told in a classic Disney manner. The film is filled with lovable characters with an enchanting story and heart popping musical numbers. This has resulted in a wonderful piece of family entertainment.

The film is based very loosely on the story of The Snow Queen, which has been rewritten to focus on two royal sisters called Elsa (voiced by Idina Menzel) and Anna (voiced by Kristen Bell).

Elsa the elder of the 2 sisters is the heir to the throne of Arendelle and has been concealing a dangerous talent throughout her childhood, which has caused her to isolate her once very close sister, Anne. Elsa has been endowed with the ability to create snow and ice at will. Once her powers were accidentally revealed she was forced to flee the castle on suspicion of witch craft, leaving blizzards and ice castles on her path.

Her devoted sister Anna, who got engaged to a handsome prince in the spur of a moment, gallops into the wilderness to find Elsa and retrieve her from the icy landscape.

Anna’s heroic journey to convince her sister to return sees her travel through the treacherous woods and mountains, which sees her team up with a hunky ice salesman Kristof.

Throughout the journey Anna is joined by her funny sidekicks, which includes a reindeer and a talking snowman called Olaf.

The story brings a sense of nostalgia, as it resembles similar films by Pixar such as ‘Tangled’ and ‘The princess and the frog’. It is by far one of the best pieces of family entertainment power, with belting power ballads such as ‘Let it go’ and ‘The cold never bothered me anyway’. These have stuck in my head for days now, good luck in shaking it out of yours.

The heroines wear some of the best princess dresses, prepare for it to be seen on every shelf in Tesco on the run up to Halloween.
