Frozen-Kids Movie Reviews

Princess Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), soon to be Queen, and Princess Anna (Kristen Bell), are not only sisters, but best friends. Though things gradually change as Elsa developes secret powers. She has the ability to create snow and ice, with a simple touch or even a thought. When her powers get out of hand, their entire kingdom of Arendelle is cast into eternal winter, so Elsa goes into hiding to be alone.  Now Anna is on a mission to find her sister and save their kingdom before it is too late.  Frozen is a wonderful animated film, one the whole family will enjoy.

Talking Points:

What is love? That’s the premise of the film. One character says that love is putting another’s needs before your own. We see sacrificial love demonstrated throughout the film; with Anna sacrificing her life for her sister, the snowman sacrifices his life to help Anna, and the ice salesman, Kristoff, sacrifices his life for Anna.

There are great messages woven throughout the film, a character said that “People make bad choices if they’re mad, or scared, or stressed.” “True love brings out the best.”

In addition to the wonderful messages, the film is fun and entertaining with great music.

The theater was filled with young kids, teenagers and adults. I interviewed people after the movie, they all loved it!!

Sexual Content: Mild
