Bottom Line: Disney dazzles once again (for the third time in a row; along with TANGLED and WRECK-IT RALPH) with this gorgeously animated musical comedy based loosely on The Ice Queen by Hans Christian Anderson. Boasting an extremely talented cast, a beautifully envisioned 3D world, masterfully executed Broadway-like showtunes and a contemporarily hip self-awareness, this fun and festive cinematic adventure is a soon-to-be classic! The story is simple and the villains a bit thin, but it’s efficiently paced and accessible to the masses (yes, my boys couldn’t stop raving about how ‘awesome’ the princess movie was…). One of the most vibrantly delightful joys of 2013, FROZEN’s fiery charm is sure to warm the hearts of your entire family!
Starring: Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad
Directed by: Chris Buck (TARZAN and SURF’S UP)

Story: Featuring the voices of Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, "Frozen" is the coolest comedy-adventure ever to hit the big screen. When a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, Anna, a fearless optimist, teams up with extreme mountain man Kristoff and his sidekick reindeer Sven on an epic journey to find Anna's sister Elsa, the Snow Queen, and put an end to her icy spell. Encountering mystical trolls, a funny snowman named Olaf, Everest-like extremes and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.
