Family Love is the Strongest Bond in FROZEN! A Review! | @DisneyAnimation #FROZEN
The holidays are perfect for spending time with your family. We all know that. We all have different traditions that we uphold year after year whether it is hiding a certain elf around the house for the children to find and keep in line, lighting Menorahs, finding the perfect Christmas tree and more!
One of our favorite things to do while the kids are out of school is check out the latest family movies. This year, we have SO many to choose from! Last week we got a sneak peak at one of our new favorite Disney movies, FROZEN. WOW! We LOVED it!
You might be thinking... okay she got a free ticket to see the movie, she HAS to say that. Yes, I got free tickets for my family to watch it but I loved the message the movie sent to the audience. The movie brings the real message of love. Family are the first people that love you and they will be there for you for your entire life! Your friends will come and go, but family is always there.
Elsa and Anne, the sisters in FROZEN find out that love can conquer all no matter what life throws at you. They don't need men to rescue them, they can stand on their own two feet and overcome all obstacles. There are men in the movie but in my own opinion... they really are minor characters. Sorry guys!
Every Disney movie has a lovable sidekick that lightens the dark moods of a typical cartoon and FROZEN is no exception. Olaf was made of love, snow and a little magic. He brought together the years lost between two sisters. One sister trying to protect her sister and the other trying to understand why their once strong bond, seemed gone. Through tragedy and triumphs, their family ties and love find a way of teaching them that there are no stronger bonds that family.
While the main characters are girls, my son loved the movie as much as the daughter. There was enough action and humor in the film to keep them both happy and content. In fact this was the first film my 4 year old daughter did not complain about the length and say she wanted to leave. As a Disney loving adult, I thought it was well written, performed(by the voice cast) and to me it was an original story that I had not seen before. I have heard others compare it loosely to the story the "Snow Queen" but since I have not seen it, it was new.
FROZEN comes to theaters everywhere on Thanksgiving and I highly recommend taking the family to see it! Make movie going a new favorite tradition.
Don't forget to check your local Children's Place store for a $5 off coupon for the movie when you purchase a FROZEN t-shirt!
