"Frozen" Review : a classic Disney animation.

Starring the voices of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad ,Directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee.

Directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee create a magical 3-D winter wonderland In "Frozen," we're first introduced to Anna ( Kristen Bell ) and Elsa ( Idina Menzel ), members of a Norwegian royal family, Elsa has the power to create snow and ice; it was something she was born with.But after an accident ends up injuring her sister, she is forced to hide her abilities and grows emotionally distant from Anna ,until the king and queen die in a shipwreck and Elsa must be crowned the new queen.During the coronation festivities, Anna falls for a visiting Prince Hans (Santino Fontana) who immediately proposes.When they ask Elsa for her blessing, she scoffs, loses control of her powers, runs up a mountain, and sends the kingdom into an eternal winter.Guilty, Anna sets out to find Elsa with the help of unlikely allies -- a loner ice deliveryman Kristoff ( Jonathan Groff ), his loyal reindeer Sven, and a goofy, sentient snowman named Olaf ( Josh Gad ).

The movie's big musical number, "Let It Go," belongs to Elsa, and it's not a song of malicious intent; it's one of empowerment.Nearly every song in “Frozen” is so catchy and is delivered with such theatrical gusto by the splendid cast.

At the heart of the film is the battle between love and fear.Resolution becomes a long journey when Elsa flees Arendelle, leaving the kingdom locked in winter's fierce grip and Anna searching for her.This is also where the film develops its very playful sense of humor.

If you have kids of a certain age, there's a good chance you're going to be seeing “Frozen” at some point over the Thanksgiving holiday. I think they'll love it, and you will too.
