Disney goes back to the classics with 'Frozen' loosely based on the fairytale 'The Snow Queen'.
Olaf meets Sven in 'Frozen'
Fairytales are definitely becoming popular again with some of the world's favourites being transferred to stunning, high-energy and often grisly live action flicks, among them being 'Jack the Giant Slayer', 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters', 'Snow White and the Huntsman' and not to mention the TV series 'Once Upon a Time' which is now in its third season. However, Disney has brought the delight back to children and reverted to what they are known for with their (albeit vague) rendition of Hans Christian Andersen's 'The Snow Queen' in an animated adventure entitled 'Frozen'. Starring Kristen Bell, Josh Gad and Broadway sensation Idina Menzel, it tells the story of Anna's quest to undo her sister Elsa's power over the kingdom of Arendelle, which she has cursed into eternal winter, accompanied by her friend Kristoff, his reindeer Sven and a snowman called Olaf.
Responsible for the screenplay (alongside Shane Morris) is 'Wreck-It Ralph' writer Jennifer Lee which, in itself, offers a promising few hours at the cinema. It also marks her directorial debut, working alongside the Oscar nominated Chris Buck ('Tarzan', 'Surf's Up') who has had a more prolific career in the animation department of Disney classics such as 'Pocahontas' and 'The Little Mermaid'. Make sure you catch 'Frozen' on December 6th 2013.
