5.0 out of 5 stars An instant Disney classic, 9 Dec 2013
By 
This review is from: Frozen [DVD] (DVD)
Simply put, 'Frozen' is a masterful family film. It's a sharp and endearing musical that will make you remember exactly why you used to fall in love with the old Disney classics as a child.

Very roughly based on the fairy tale `The Snow Queen', `Frozen' tells the story of two princesses in the kingdom of Arendelle who become embroiled in adventure when their town becomes trapped in a state of endless winter. Voiced by Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, the two princesses mark a refreshing change of pace for the traditional Disney Princesses. Both smart and funny, these are (for once) princesses who aren't defined by their love interests. Indeed, the film is first and foremost about their relationship with each other.

The roster of supporting characters is varied and entertaining, with the highlight being a charmingly clueless snowman named Olaf, whose dream is to see summer for the first time. The film also features a reindeer who, despite never speaking, still manages to steal a good number of scenes. The plot is fairly standard fare as far as Disney goes, but the occasional twist and surprise helps keep things fresh.

This is the first true musical that Disney have produced in a long while. Packed with imaginative and memorable songs, this'll have you recalling the glory days of `Beauty and the Beast' and `The Lion King'. Out of the generous handful of musical numbers the film offers, the best is the powerful ballad `Let It Go' which will stick with you long after the credits roll.

As appealing for children as it will be for adults, this film is a real return to form for Disney. `Frozen' is funny, smart, charming and feels truly timeless. I can't praise it highly enough.
