    Frozen came out on November 27, 2013. This movie is the world’s 9th highest growing film of all time. Some of the cast includes Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad, and Alan Tudyk. Frozen is the 53rd Disney animated feature film. This movie was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s, “The Snow Queen.” This movie is basically about a princess named Elsa. Elsa has magical ice powers that she would use to play around with her sister Anna. After a bit Elsa ends up injuring Anna with her ice powers. Elsa and Anna’s parents take Anna to the trolls so they can heal her. The trolls did heal her but they had to remove her memory so she would not know that her sister, Elsa, has magical powers. After they remove Anna’s memory of her sister having those powers, their parents had to isolate both of them in their castle. Basically after that isolation, Elsa felt really insecure about herself and her power, and Anna wanted to be with her sister and she did not understand why she could not be with Elsa. Whilst this event was going on, Elsa and Anna’s parents died in a sea wreck.

    When Elsa turns 21 years old, she is then crowned as the queen of Arendelle. She is petrified and scared to take this position because she is afraid that the kingdom will find out about her power. During the ceremony of her becoming the queen, coronation, she tries so hard to conceal her magic. But when the after party comes, something happens. Her and Anna get in a fight because Anna brought to Elsa’s attention that she was gonna get married to a prince named Hans. Elsa was not happy with this and she tried exclaiming to Anna that she couldn’t marry a man she just met, but Anna disagreed with that. Anna would not quit leave Elsa alone with her idea, so Elsa lost it and accidentally revealed her magic by striking ice towards everyone at the party. Elsa then runs away from Arendelle, and making her own creation of an ice castle. Anna then goes on a long and cold journey to find her sister.

    There were a few rough patches and events that occurred through the finding and returning of Elsa. There were deaths, battles, injuries, etc. Elsa ended up injuring Anna when she finally found Elsa. Elsa did not mean to hurt Anna, she was trying to tell her to leave her be so she would not hurt her, and did Anna listen? NO! Kristoff, Anna’s future lover, helps Anna get help. He takes her back to the trolls, the ones that helped her in her early years because of an injury from Elsa’s magic. But sadly they could not help and they did not quite know what the answer was. Anna basically started to believe that Hans, the man she was gonna marry, was going to be able to keep her alive. But actually, he left her to die. She could barely move or get up to walk to escape, also the door was locked. But as she started facing facts that, that was it, her buddy Olaf came to save her. He put her by a warm fire, but that was not enough. But Hans told Anna that he was gonna kill Elsa. So Anna done everything she could to save Elsa before it was too late. Anna ran to find Elsa, but it was very foggy and you could barely see anything. Anna was found by Kristoff and he started running to her before it was too late. But instead of waiting for Kristoff to come and save her, she ran in front of the sword that Hans was just about to kill her sister with, and at that moment, Anna froze to death...Elsa was heartbroken and upset that the person that has always loved her the most saved her from death. You know how I said they did not know the answer to save Anna from death? Well the answer was true love. Maybe not relationship wise, but family wise. “An act of true love will thaw a frozen heart.” And they all lived happily ever after!
