As temperatures of winter started to drop, the animated musical fantasy film Frozen premiered on Nov. 19, 2013 winning the hearts of all ages with its delightful music and charming characters.
The film was produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures featuring the voices of Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad and Santino Fontana and the music compositions of Tony Award winner, Robert Lopez.
“Nearly every song in “Frozena�� is so catchy and is delivered with such theatrical gusto by the splendid cast,” Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun-Times wrote.
This family-friendly flick is unique for an animated musical. It is arguable that Disney hasn’t produced much of its kind since the production of Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. Among those the Generation Y remembers best.
Taking its viewers on an awe-inspiring adventure with characters you can’t help but fall in love with.
Betsy Sharkey of the L.A. Times said, “The snowman is an animation marvel, designed to keep coming apart and bouncing back together. His broad smile, buckteeth and wide eyes are the very embodiment of innocence and adoration. Josh Gad, who voices Olaf, is so endearing you really do want to just hug hima��”
Black Hills State University’s Environmental Physical Science student, Kelsey Rodriguez, claimed to have seen the movie more than five times already in its short life being in theaters.
“I thought the movie overall was fantastic. I like frozen because on the outside it is a fun family movie that teaches some good lessons, while on the inside – and I believe the main beauty in the film, is because it shows many different kinds of personalities and gives many different insights to how one should live their life,” Rodriguez said.
Traveling through the kingdom, up the mountains and through the woods, the movie brings laughter and satire to its epic journey – and of course the true love and happy ending Disney can’t avoid.
Frozen also demonstrates the common internal and external conflict of good versus evil. Buried deep within the character Elsa’s childhood, she discovers her power/curse as a young girl and her continuing struggle to be good while also fighting her inability to control the curse.
The G rated film is still in theaters and coming soon to DVD on March 18. For the action seekers, musical lovers and even the mountain men out there on campus, this movie is a must see. With goofy characters and lots of laughter between the lines, this animated musical fantasy film is worth two thumbs up.
