'Let it Go' one of many highlights in Disney's 'Frozen'
Movies & More reviewer John Gillispie thinks Disney's "Frozen," rated PG and available on DVD, is an entertaining film whose Oscar-winning song "Let It Go" can really work its way into your mind.
For those of you who are parents of small children, then it is not news to you that Disney's "Frozen" is now available on DVD.
The film's credits say: "story inspired by 'The Snow Queen' by Hans Christian Andersen" and I found "Frozen" to be an entertaining animated film with interesting characters and plenty of adventure. "Let It Go," the movie's Oscar-winning song, is certainly catchy as I have found it playing in my mind off and on once I heard it a time or two.
"Frozen" tells the story of two sisters who happen to be princesses. Elsa (voiced by Idina Menzel) is the oldest sister and she has a special power to turn things to ice with her touch and create things with snow and frozen stuff. Her parents encourage her to hide her ability and when she accidentally harms her younger sister Anna (voiced by Kristen Bell), the decision is made to keep the girls apart.
Meanwhile, Anna is healed, but her memories of Elsa's special powers are erased and she has no idea why she is being shunned by her beloved sister.
When Elsa's powers are finally revealed to the townsfolk, she is branded a sorceress and flees to create her own icy castle away from her home and her sister. Anna sets out to find her and try to help. Kristoff (voiced by Jonathan Groff) is the young man who helps Anna on her journey assisted by his reindeer sidekick and a small and amusing snowman named Olaf (voiced by Josh Gad).
I'd like to send good wishes to all the parents out there who will be hearing "Let It Go" both in their living rooms and in their minds for quite some time.
