The two princesses, Anna and Elsa, are the principal characters obviously. However, they are surrounded by an excellent collection of characters. Kristoff the mountain man, along with his reindeer Sven, assists Anna in the mountains whilst she is looking for Elsa. Hans, the Prince from the Southern Isles, is handsome and dashing, very much in accordance with a conventional Prince Charming style of role model. And finally, Olaf the snowman, made by Elsa using her snow powers, takes the role of wacky sidekick very well throughout the movie. Olaf is among the best Disney characters for some time. He delivers some very entertaining wisecracks - and there are plenty of great slapstick moments involving him as well.



A Film That You Simply Must See

The two central characters, Elsa and her young sister Princess Anna spend their childhood together in the kingdom of Arendelle. Elsa has mystical snow powers; she can create ice, frost and snow with no more than a gesture. That's a pretty cool trick for any young girl and Elsa and her sister Anna play and use Elsa's snow powers to have some icy games. Up until Elsa unintentionally injures Anna using her mystical powers that is. Afterwards, Princess Elsa is isolated and banned from using her powers again. Later, when both princesses are young adults, their parents die at sea and Elsa becomes Queen of Arendelle.

Sadly, triggered by an emotional disagreement with Anna, she releases her ice powers once more - and this time in public. Distraught, she flees the castle, unintentionally plunging her domain into perpetual winter as she exits. She takes asylum in a distant ice castle which she creates high the mountains using her snow magic.

Anna takes off on a mission to be rejoined with Elsa; she eventually manages this assisted by some travelling companions which she meets en route. Unfortunately, Princess Anna is once again wounded by Elsa's ice power and needs to be rescued by an unselfish act of "true love".



The breakthrough came when it was decided to give the Snow Queen a younger sibling. In Andersen's traditional tale, the Snow Queen is helped by a younger peasant girl. Disney made a choice to tweak this and Elsa (the Snow Queen) was given a younger sibling - Princess Anna.

This was an extremely clever move by Disney. It set up a familial link between the two key characters, a thing which was lacking in Andersen's traditional story, and it helped to make Princess Anna's sterling efforts to help rescue her sister a lot more credible. It also changed the picture into a story of sisterly love, which perhaps goes a long way to explain the film's strong appeal to young girls (and grown women) globally.



Whilst it might not have been totally true to the original story, the final adaptation of Frozen undeniably struck a chord with cinema goers young and old. The sisterly affection theme definitely worked well for young girls (and their moms), and it also helped to provide motivation for Anna to undertake her venture. In Hans Christian Andersen's initial version, the Snow Queen is aided by a youthful peasant girl who has no actual link to her. While that may well have been convincing in Andersen's day, present day patrons, in Disney's reasoning at any rate, may well have considered that level of selflessness a little bit hard to credit. To judge by the end result, Disney looks to have been one hundred percent correct in its evaluation.



In addition to princesses Anna and Elsa, the primary characters in the movie are Kristoff the mountain man, Sven the reindeer, Prince Hans of the Southern Isles and a goofy snowman named Olaf. Hans is essentially in the standard Prince Charming mould, and it is Anna's amorous enthusiasm for him that causes the unplanned use of Elsa's ice powers at her coronation. When Anna sets out to save Elsa, she runs into Kristoff and his reindeer, Sven. She coaxes them to help her in the mountain peaks and they journey together. Loving feelings also grow between Olaf and Anna. She's an extremely popular girl. Last, but certainly not least, is Olaf the snowman. Olaf was produced by Princess Elsa working with her ice magic during the course of her childhood and takes the essential role of "whacky sidekick" all throughout the movie. He's certainly, in my opinion at least, one of the best Disney characters for some time - and he gets some fantastic wittiscisms plus many awesome visual gags.



Frozen is an excellent movie. Aesthetically magnificent, with an awesome score and some truly awesome tracks. Most of the backdrop was based on Norway, and even the music was influenced by Sami and Norwegian traditional music. Some sections of the backing music for Princess Elsa's coronation scene was even recorded in Trondheim. Regarding the tracks, these are always a very important part of any Disney motion picture, and Frozen has some exceptional examples. The best known songs are probably "Let It Go", a belter of a power ballad which acquired an Academy Award for "Best Song 2013", "Do You Wanna Build A Snowman", a lighter piece and "In Summer", an out and out comedic interlude starring Olaf the snowman. There are eight songs in total, two of which are repeated later in the movie, and the tracks fill about twenty three minutes of the movie.
