In Frozen, fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell ) teams up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff ) and his loyal reindeer Sven in an epic journey, encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf in a race to find Anna’s sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), 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. (source: screenrant.com)
It looked whimsical, fun and delightfully silly, with a slapstick snowman, goofy reindeer, and the sort of sweet, if overly earnest, relationships between its character that have made Disney cartoons great drawcards for over half a century now.
And the release of the full-length trailer has done nothing to diminish my enthusiasm for Disney’s take on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic story The Snow Queen.
While I am at heart a Pixar boy, preferring their more emotionally grounded, substantial tales, I think Frozen shows real promise and will make a lovely addition to my post-Christmas holiday reverie.
Frozen is scheduled for release on 27 November in USA, 6 December in the UK and 26 December in Australia.
