Before the heat went on for the year of 2013 with The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013), there was an animated masterpiece that didn’t make people cold-hearted: Disney’s Frozen (2013).
Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen, Frozen is about two sisters: one born with the ability to summon frost and a normal woman. Elsa (Idina Menzel) had a tough time controlling her abilities, which made other people nervous at her coronation. However, Anna (Kristen Bell) was more than willing to help Elsa let go of the past and stop the real person who had a frozen heart all along.
The film was notable for winning both Best Animated Film and Best Original Song at the 2013 Oscars.
Many people were a bit irritated that Frozen is cute but it is actually bittersweet with Elsa’s rage from the snow monster Marshmallow (Paul Briggs) and a surprisingly tragic condition that Elsa was born with. Luckily, it never went too intense compared to The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996).
Frozen is a great kids film that wants people to believe in the love from everyone around each other.
