The Disney Frozen Review

Disney FrozenDisney’s Frozen, like most Disney films¸ originates loosely based on an old tale known as The Snow Queen, there is however a major difference between the main character of  The Snow Queen and Frozen. Elsa, the princess turned queen of Frozen, cannot control her powers. This is shown early in the film when young Elsa (Eva Bella) almost loses control and kills her younger sister, Anna (Livvy Stubenrauch). Their parents, desperate to save their daughter, take her to the trolls where it is reviled that Elsa learns that she is extremely dangerous and can hurt others. Elsa and her parents seem to agree to lock her away until she can control her ice powers, and things get worse when Elsa’s parents die in ship wreck at sea.

The audience is then brought into the present on an important day, Elsa’s coronation day as queen. Anna (Kristen Bell) is excited for two reasons: to see her sister in the first time in forever and also because the castle is reopened to the public. We see Anna run through the town of Arendelle where she runs into Prince Hans from the Southern Isles and, like most Disney films, they fall in love and get engaged. After Elsa’s coronation, Anna introduces Elsa (Idina Menzel) to Hans (Santino Fontana) and asks for her sister’s blessing. Elsa, however, denies the couple her blessing which spurs into a fight between the siblings where Elsa loses control of her powers and reveals them to the whole down. Elsa flees the town of Arendelle incase in an eternal winter.

Frozen works in a world of grey, instead of black and white. Unlike where most villains are easily identified, that is not the case with this film. People hide their true intentions or mistakes happen, as in the case of Elsa, and they are perceived as villains.

The soundtrack and script of the film work together in a natural pace and never get tiring. These two aspects work beautifully to create both emotional and hilarious scenes on screen, such as Olaf’s (voiced by Josh Gad) song, “In Summer”, where Olaf speculates what summer must feel life and how he wishes it be summer.

The animation of the film is superb in its continuation of the idea of the fairy tale, from beautiful icy castles to where snowmen dream of summer. This is one of Disney’s greatest movies in all time.

Frozen Heats Up

Frozen

If you haven’t heard of Frozen, you have probably not been outside lately. Frozen is the biggest block buster since… Well, it’s huge. You’re probably singing “Let It Go” because the song is everywhere.

Disney’s Frozen underwent several story treatments for years, before being commissioned in 2011. The screenplay was written by Jennifer Lee, and both Chris Buck and Lee serving as directors. Frozen features the voices of Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad, and Santino Fontana. Christophe Beck was hired to compose the film’s orchestral score, while husband-and-wife songwriting team Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez penned the songs.

Once again, this is one of my favorite movies. Did you notice the girl from Tangled? Disney places characters from other films into new films. You need to pay attention, but you’ll be able to find them yourself.

News Update Tangleds Concept Art

TangledA classic firm with a modern twist.  Disney’s Tangled is a fun story to watch for the entire family.

I have to be honest, I did not know what to expect. I thought it was going to lack substance or be too far off from the original story. Fortunately, Disney did a great job and I was wrong.

The story is really Rapunzel. It’s about a girl with really, really, really long hair. She lives in a tower where no one can find her. However, one day some does find her. They go on a journey together. They face some danger together. And then they fall in love.

That’s really the short version of a much longer story, but you get the point of Tangled. It’s a fun movie and worth watching. It’s more for girls, but boys may like it too. I hope you enjoy.

More About the Princess and the Frog

Princess and the Frog

If you live in New Orleans or Louisiana, you are going to love this film. Wait… If you live everywhere else you are going to love this film. The Princess and the Frog is one of the best Disney films I have ever seen. It’s completely original and the story was brought to life.

Living in New Orleans, I appreciate all the buildings, swamps, and Spanish moss. They really got it right. And the music was great too. I was dance to the jazz the entire night. It actually made me want to go to the French Quarter.

The story brings together many things that are New Orleans. If you have never been to New Orleans, you need to come to our city. It is one of the only cities that has an amazing character. You feel like you are in a different time, in a place outside the United States. Please come and visit our city.

From Barney to Disney Channel Demi Lovato

DisneyIf you have been keeping track of Disney, you would have noticed that Disney is everywhere.  Disney has become a large corporation.  They are no longer just a children dreams company, but a company that has fingers everywhere.  This is great for some, but brings the Disney image into question.

Growing up, Disney was synonymous with family values.  If you heard Disney made it, you would know it’s safe for young children.  However, as Disney grew, so did its audience.  It was no longer family.  It became adults, teenagers, etc.

Disney made some mistakes growing up.  Like any child becoming an adult, they took risks.  Some of these risk backfired.  Some did not.  Looking at it with the knowledge of where Disney is now, it looks like it all worked out.

Disney has found a balance.  They are still able to make family friendly movies.  Yet, they can still make adult films.  I have to hand it to Disney for making it work and keeping the tradition alive.

Thank you Disney

Ever since I was a little girl, I have always  wanted to see Disney on Ice. Disney Ice Princess are amazing.  They are the real deal princesses and they are also figure skaters.

I have watched figure skating growing up.  It’s amazing how these athletes just dance on the ice.  It’s like gliding on the clouds.

What about a Disney Princess Wish?  Do Disney Princesses have wishes?

If you have ever watched a Disney movie, you would know that they are full of wishes.  It’s the magic of Disney that makes it so special.  If you ever get a chance to see Disney on Ice, I would likely recommend it.

Long Ear Dumbo be Proud of Yourself

Do you remember your childhood story of Dumbo?  Dumbo is a childhood favorite of mine.  This elephant is amazing.

Dumbo

Coming from an era when things were a lot simpler, Dumbo learned to overcome his disadvantages.  He is made fun of as a little elephant.  I remember being made fun of for my name.  I can’t image how it would be if they made fun of my ears.

However, as I grew older, I enjoyed my name.  And Dumbo started enjoying is ears.  Have you ever seen an elephant fly?  You have… if you have seen the movie.  But the best part is… you have… if you have been on the Dumbo ride at Disneyland.

Skandar Keynes Edmund Pevensie

Skandar Keynes

He is the star of the Chronicles of Narnia.  Skandar Keynes has done it… it’s an amazing performance and the movie was a success.

In The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Edmund betrays his siblings to the White Witch while he is under her influence.  However, as the story progresses, he accepts the that he is wrong. He is redeemed with the intervention of Aslan.  He joins the fight against the witch.

Fulfilling an ancient prophecy, Skandar becomes King Edmund the Just, King of Narnia.  And together, with sisters Susan and Lucy, co-ruler under High King Peter. Edmund is described in the books as being part of a ‘group of fair haired men’ and is specifically described as having a ‘golden beard’ so is most likely blond.

The stories are great.  The movies are wonderful, but the books are even better.  I recommend buying the books on Amazon.  You’ll spend hours hearing the tails and will remember them for the rest of your life.
