The film is set in the sovereignty of Arendelle. The King and Queen have two young daughters; Princess Elsa and Anna. Elsa is the successor to the throne and she possesses mysterious snow powers.

She can create frost, snow and ice with the wave of a hand. That's a ton of fun and Elsa and Anna make lots of use of Elsa's snow magic when they're playing - till Elsa accidentally injures Anna using her magical powers at any rate. Subsequent to that unfortunate incident, Elsa is essentially quarantined and told not to use her snow magic again. Later on, when both of the princesses have grown up into young adults, their mother and father perish at sea and Elsa is crowned as queen of Arendelle. Regrettably, triggered by an emotive debate with Anna, Elsa unleashes her ice power afresh, and on this occasion in full view of her loyal subjects. She panics and runs out of the palace, accidentally plunging the kingdom of Arendelle into continuous winter as she leaves.

She takes refuge in an isolated ice castle, which she constructs on the North Mountain using her ice magic. Equipped with very little more than a determined approach, Princess Anna undertakes to be rejoined with her elder sister, save her from her self imposed detachment and, while she's at it, to see if they can't get rid of the inclement climate.

Another Smash Hit For Disney

While it might not have been stringently true to the authentic story, the finished interpretation of Frozen certainly struck a chord with viewers of all ages. The sisterly devotion theme definitely worked well for young girls (and their moms), and it also helped to furnish motivation for Anna to complete her quest. In Hans Christian Andersen's first version, the Snow Queen is aided by a youthful peasant girl who has no firm relationship to her.

Whilst that might have been convincing in Andersen's time, contemporary patrons, in Disney's reasoning at any rate, may have considered that level of selflessness a little bit hard to credit. To judge by the end result, Disney appears to have been fully vindicated in its analysis.

The troupe of main characters is likewise extremely excellent. Princess Elsa makes an excellent, modernized, Snow Queen; a little more sensitive and much less of a villain - and subsequently more appealing to Disney's target audience. Anna is an eternal optimist and seems more than willing to conquer any obstacle to be reunited with her older sister. The other main characters feature Kristoff the ice harvester and Sven, his reindeer. Prince Hans, from the Southern Isles, offers a Prince Charming type character, but once again, an extremely current edition of one. Olaf the snowman was made by Princess Elsa employing her snow powers when she was young.

He delivers some terrific lines and is involved in a fair number of slapstick type visual jokes also. Olaf might just be the best Disney comedy character for several years now.

The deal maker arrived when an executive decision to give the Snow Queen a younger sibling. In Andersen's original story, the Snow Queen is assisted by a little peasant girl. Disney decided to change this and Princess Elsa (the Snow Queen) was provided with a junior sibling - Princess Anna. This was an extremely savvy decision by Disney. It built a solid link between the two key characters, a thing which was absent in Andersen's earlier story, and it made Princess Anna's outstanding efforts to help save her sister a lot more credible. It also changed the film into a tale of the power of sisterhood, which quite possibly goes a long way to account for the film's strong appeal to girls (and adult women) everywhere.

Despite having a sisterly bond created, the film still went through a number of variations before it was finally launched. In the earlier editions Princess Elsa was much closer to the spirit of the Snow Queen than she became in the ultimate edition of the movie. Earlier versions saw her cast as a villain, which would definitely have been a lot more in line with Andersen's original portrayal. However, this was tweaked to provide a more fragile facet to her character and, notwithstanding the fact that it may not have been in strict conformance with the root material, the final result would appear to justify this move. Along with the modifications to Elsa's character, the friendship existing between both princesses, despite the huge differences in their characters, is a pivotal facet of the plot.

Other than Elsa and Anna, the principal personalities in the movie are Kristoff the mountain man, Sven, his reindeer, Prince Hans of the Southern Isles and a goofy snowman named Olaf. Hans is essentially in the standard Prince Charming mold, and it is Anna's amorous interest in him that triggers the unplanned use of Elsa's ice magic during her coronation. When Anna sets out to rescue Elsa, she encounters Kristoff the mountain man and Sven, his reindeer.

She coaxes them to escort her in the mountain ranges and they travel together. Loving emotions also grow between Olaf and Anna. She's a popular girl.

Last, but by no means least, is Olaf the snowman. Olaf was created by Princess Elsa using her ice magic at the time of her childhood and has the essential role of "whacky sidekick" all throughout the movie. He's undoubtedly, in my opinion at least, one of the best Disney characters for a long time - and he has some terrific wittiscisms plus many outstanding visual gags.
