Disney films, movies, mum's thoughts
taking another look at Olaf at the Frozen marquee last year…

The latest Disney animated offering was creating quite a stir and I have been reading a lot about it in my Facebook timeline. The songs from the film were rendered in different languages and a lot of children the world over are smitten by this snowy tale. I got to watch Frozen with my boys when it was shown in local cinemas late last year.  Although the little man was not really raving about the film, well except for Olaf, perhaps, and wanted to leave even way before the film was through, I actually enjoyed it and agreed that Walt Disney created yet another animation classic children will enjoy even after a few generations from now.

The Frozen Nutshell

Disney films, movies, mum's thoughts

The story tells the tale of 2 sisters torn apart by an unknown magic that got the older sister, Elsa, to possess the ability to create snow and freeze everything around her. For fear of hurting others and hurting her own sister again, Elsa kept to herself inside her room, away from other people including her beloved little sister. It has been like that ever since Anna can remember and it even got worse when their parents were swept away in a sea storm in one of their travels.  Elsa stayed in her room and Anna never felt more alone. Until the day Elsa came of age and had no choice but to open up the gates of the palace to the rest of the world ~ the coronation day. It was greeted by excited anticipation by Anna, while Elsa was apprehensive and worried. One thing led to another and the rest of Arendelle was aware of their newly-crowned queen’s unusual ability.  Before everyone knows it, the place was buried in deep, deep snow as Elsa fled to the North Mountain and everyone else scampered to find solace from the cold. Anna braved the snow to bring her sister back and help her undo what she had done. Her path intertwined with that of Kristoff and his reindeer, Sven,Kristoff’s friends, the trolls, as well as with a character from Anna’s childhood, Olaf. Together, they set out to find Elsa and aimed to unfreeze the entire kingdom.

Why I love it?

  • Anyone who has a sister {or two} can definitely relate to the film and love it to bits! The way Anna never gave up on her sister and gave her life for her sister is enough to bring tears to any sister’s eyes.
  • I simply loved and enjoyed the beautiful songs in the film and one even got me LSSed many times over. Am sure your little ones have also bugged you on one too many occasions with the question “do you wanna build a snowman?” singing to the tune of Anna’s song. 
  • The plot that depicts the true love that bonds sisters Anna and Elsa sure is a welcome change from all the prince-and-princess-happy-ever-after fair tale and am sure mums would be at peace having their pre-teen girls see this flick instead of the romance-laden contemporaries.
  • Olaf. Need I say more? His cuteness simply made me wish I can build and have my own snowman, too!  :heart:
