Jenny VS Frozen

So after listening to my friends go on and on for weeks about how good Frozen was and how much they want to see it again I finally caved and decided to go and see it. I've always been a fan of Disney and I love their newer films (such as Brave and Tangled) almost as much as their older ones and this film didn't disappoint.

Frozen is about two princesses; Elsa and Ana. When they were children Elsa accidentally injured Ana with her power to create snow and ice, causing the royal family become closed off to the world and Elsa to cut herself off from her sister whom she was once so close to, making their relationship become even more strained. At her coronation her powers are revealed to the world with her being proclaimed a 'monster'as she cannot control her power. She runs away to the mountain living in a self made ice fortress. Ana teams up with Kristoff, his reindeer Sven, and her childhood snowman Olaf trying to find Elsa and convince her to come back home which has frozen over.

The animation of this film was spectacular. The amount of work that must've going into making Elsa's powers come, making the snow seem realistic and the soundtrack especially stood out to me. My friends absolutely love Idina Menzel (especially in Wicked) and her singing really made the film.

Let It Go by Idina Menzel is my (and im pretty sure everyone elses) favourite song from Frozen, it definitely deserves the Oscar nomination for best original song.
