Frozen is not only a thrilling animated adventure, it is exactly what the animators at Walt Disney Studios having been doing best in the business since 1937.
Starting with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Walt's animators have transformed traditional fairytales into morality plays for modern audiences. Sometimes, the stories they have told were deceptively simple, while hiding complex emotions and powerful life lessons. Just like the ones we discovered in classics such as Snow White, Pinocchio, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Beauty and the Beast and even The Little Mermaid, the sprightly musical that revived the animation studio's fortunes in 1989.
Frozen does all of that beautifully. It has two princesses, a magic spell, a family tragedy, duplicity and danger, slapstick humour, great original Broadway-style songs and two strong leads in Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel. They provide the speaking and singing voices for the two royal sisters, Anna and Elsa.
