Review of Frozen

When their kingdom becomes trapped in perpetual winter, fearless Anna (Kristen Bell) joins forces with mountaineer Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and his reindeer sidekick to find Anna’s sister, Snow Queen Elsa (Idina Menzel), and break her icy spell. Although their epic journey leads them to encounters with mystical trolls, a comedic snowman (Josh Gad), harsh conditions, and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff bravely push onward in a race to save their kingdom from winter’s cold grip.
 Ever since I saw Frozen in 2013, I always loved it. To me, I love how the true love is between the two sisters and not a girl and a guy and I think that is one of the reasons why it has been successful. The fact that one of the characters (Elsa) has ice and snow powers does bring out Disney magic. My favorite songs from Frozen are “Let it Go”, which reminds me of “Defying Gravity”, and “For the First Time in Forever”. I am not sick and tired of “Let it Go” and is a perfect scene to watch because this the first time that Elsa truly gets to be who she is.
I don’t find Olaf to be annoying. I find him to be a lovable snowman. Kristoff helps Anna in her adventures because he knows the mountains so well. He was raised by Trolls and you first met him as a child and he has a close bond to Sven and towards the end, Sven does realize that Kristoff loves Anna and makes him realize that.
Of all the main characters, I dislike Hans the most because you always think he is the good guy, but at the end you realize he is really a bad guy. Boy, you thought he was so nice and actually loved Anna, but he most certainly did not and all he wanted was to take Ardenlle’s throne.
Elsa and Anna eventually have a close bond even though at first there is bunch of not getting long. Elsa is just trying to keep her sister safe, but Anna really wants to have a relationship with her sister. In so many ways, their relationship is a typical sibling relationship. I have a sister and just like Anna and Elsa, we don’t always get along, but at times we do. At the end, the two sisters realize that love is the answer to how Elsa can control her powers.
I don’t consider Frozen to be overhyped. If you think about it, you have to consider the children who fell in love with it. That is where a lot of the love comes from. I am 23 and I love Frozen. I think the landscapes are beautifully well-done. and I think it is a beautiful story.

Frozen and Wicked

“Frozen” and “Wicked” are two different musicals, but they are so very similar. I noticed this connection after I saw the movie, “Frozen”, for the first time. I see similarities between two of the characters and the relationship among them.

Anna from “Frozen” is the outgoing sister. That is very similar to who Glinda is, but there is still a difference. Glinda is funny, but just like Anna she has the outgoing personality. Anna acts before she thinks and is the younger sister. There is a bigger similarity between Elsa and Elphaba. Both Elsa and Elphaba have magical powers that they have a hard time controlling and they are both misunderstood. The friendship between Elphaba and Glinda is very similar to the sister relationship between Elsa and Anna.

Another big similarity is how similar the songs “Let it Go” and “Defying Gravity all. It has nothing to do with the fact that Idina Menzel originated both Elsa and Elphaba. Those two songs are exactly just as powerful and happens during a breathtaking moment. They also are almost about the exact same thing. “Defying Gravity” is the moment when Elphaba flies for the first time and finally finds a use for her powers. Elphaba decides to stay more true to herself. In “Let it Go”, the same thing basically happens. In that song, Elsa finally gets to be who she is and makes an ice castle by using her powers.

I think the reason why I ended up loving “Frozen” was because of how much it reminded me of “Wicked”. Because of my strong love for “Wicked”, it makes sense why I love “Frozen” like I do. “Frozen” is basically a simpler version of “Wicked”, but at the same there are still obvious differences.
