Fearless optimist Anna teams up with rugged mountain man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven and sets off on an epic journey to find her sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom. From the outside Elsa looks poised, regal and reserved, but in reality she lives in fear as she wrestles with a mighty secret: she was born with the power to create ice and snow. It’s a beautiful ability, but also extremely dangerous. Haunted by the moment her magic nearly killed her younger sister Anna, Elsa has isolated herself, spending every waking minute trying to suppress her growing powers. Her mounting emotions trigger the magic, accidentally setting off an eternal winter that she can’t stop. She fears she’s becoming a monster and that no one, not even her sister, can help her.

User Reviews: I am an all-the-way Disney girl. Always have, always will.
QUICK COMMENT: Everything expected from Disney. Heart-melting moments, light humor, clever twists, happy ending, cheerful songs, stunning picture, etc. GO Disney! I gave this an 8/10 because of the mediocre songs and the occasional voice mismatch. (explained below)
VOICE MISMATCH: In the beginning, I was captivated by Frozen. But when Elsa started to sing in the ice castle, I was rudely awakened from my dream back into reality by the mismatch of Idina’s voice as Elsa. I couldn’t believe my ears. I even checked on my remote control briefly to see if someone pressed anything that changed the sound setting or whatever. For the first time in my life, (after watching various Disney movies like 300 times), I couldn’t bring myself to believe what I was watching. The graphics seemed separated from the soundtrack. This really breaks my heart because I am a Disney believer :'( I want everything Disney to be perfect. This is so unlike Disney.
It’s not just me, most people around me agrees with me. And the ones who didn’t agree could see where I was coming from. Finally another person wrote this in his/her review:
***" Idina Menzel was miscast. Her speaking voice was almost acceptable, but singing-wise, it didn’t suit Elsa at all."***
I think he/she sums up my only complaint very well.
But please don’t get me wrong. I love Idina Menzel. She is beautiful and massively talented. The problem is, I can never match Elsa with her voice. I am truly disappointed by the casting decision :'( But maybe its just me. Anyway, overall, it is still a very Disney movie. Enjoy it and love it.
