**WARNING!!! This post contains a review of Frozen and also some trivia regarding it (a big Thank You! goes to IMDB ;) my reliable source when it comes to movies data). It will be an extensive post and it will have loads of pictures and text so please grab yourself a cup of tea and a warm blanket and Enjoy!**
|The French Poster showing as "The Snow Queen"|
***The characters of Anna, Hans, and Kristof are all named after Hans Christian Andersen: Prince Hans as in Hans, (Krist)of as in (Christ)ian, and (An)na as in (An)dersen.
***Idina Menzel said Frozen (2013) is "a bit of a feminist movie for Disney." "I'm really proud of that," Menzel tells Zap2it. "It has everything, but it's essentially about sisterhood. I think that these two women are competitive with one another, but always trying to protect each other - sisters are just so complicated. It's such a great relationship to have in movies, especially for young kids." Kristen Bell said on a similar matter: "I'm really excited to show it to people. I became a part of the kind of movie I wanted to see as a kid," she said. "I always loved Disney animation, but there was something about the females that was unattainable to me. Their posture was too good and they were too well-spoken, and I feel like I really made this girl [Princess Anna] much more relatable and weirder and scrappier and more excitable and awkward. I'm really proud of that."
***Elsa is the third Disney vocal role for Idina Menzel. At the end of Enchanted (2007), her character Nancy Tremaine went to the animated Andalasia and married Prince Edward, and in the Disney television series of Hercules (1998), she is the speaking and singing voice of the sorceress Circe. Idina Menzel auditioned for the part of Rapunzel in Disney's previous fairytale, Tangled (2010). Even though Menzel didn't get the part, a Disney casting director recorded her audition and two years later, it got her the part of Elsa.
***I sincerly love the "Let It Go" song that Elsa is singing once she is free, out on the mountain - The Cold Never Bothered Me Anyway... And let's face it, Elsa is quite a kick arse architect. She builds in an instant the most beautiful ice castle you ever seen and she transforms like a ice-phoenix all hair down and winter white dress... She has the power and she has a strong will and she wishes not to hurt anyone! Especially her baby sister. But guess what!? Anna is a strong willed Princess as well so she leaves Hans in charge of the kingdom - yes, her newly discovered fiance... Lack of judgement if you ask me! - and rides off to talk to her sister and prove people wrong, that she is not a monster. With help from her new friends - Kai, Kai's Raindeer (whose name escapes me here...) and Olaf (the most adorable snowman you will ever see, made by Elsa) - she manages to find her sister in the North Mountain and confront her. Well... that worked out well! NOT! While discussing/fighting Elsa hits by mistake Anna and this time in her heart...
***Long story short, Anna is dying and only true love can save her - according to the adorable trolls that saved her the first time. So Kai rushes out to the castle so Anna could get in time to Hans to have a true loves kiss that would cure her... Well SURPRISE!!! Hans wishes both girls dead so he would have the kingdom to himself so he leaves Anna to die, locked in a cold room, and goes to kill Elsa as well... But change of events, Olaf rescues Anna and helps her out of the castle so she could meet Kai and save herself - Kai is the one she loves, Kai put her needs above himselfs and Kai got into her heart step by step not just during one night at a party! And I sincerly love this turn of events. I love that Disney is showing that not the first person you lay your eyes upon is your true love or that you need to marry the first person you set eyes on. I love that both Anna and Elsa are 2 strong Princesses that make up their own minds and destinies. Anna sees Hans trying to kill Elsa and she makes up her mind upon sacrificing her own love/life/freedom in exchange of her sister. She puts herself between Hans and Elsa in the exact moment when she gets transformed into an ice statue and breaks Hans sword. Now don't worry :) Disney stories always have a happy ending and I did tell you that true love will save our adorable Anna ;) Anna's true love for Elsa and her sacrifice makes her turn human again so the 2 sisters reunite and Elsa learns how to control her powers through love :)
And remember everyone: Only true love can thaw a frozen heart. So never give up loving! :*
A LadyBug that truly enjoyed Frozen and she is sure to be watching this again and showing to her future children, one glorious winter day :)
