Frozen is an American 3D computer-animated musical fantasy-comedy film from Walt Disney Company. It tells about Elsa, a princess of Arendelle kingdom, who possesses an ability to create ice and snow with her bare hands. One night while playing, she accidentally injures her younger sister, Anna. The king and queen seek help from trolls, who heal Anna and remove her memories of her sister's magic. The trolls tell them Elsa’s powers can be dangerous, so the royal couple decides to lock the family away in their castle until Elsa learns how to control her powers. Afraid of hurting her sister again, Elsa spends most of her time alone in her room, causing a rift between the sisters as they grow up. When the girls are teenagers, their parents are lost at sea during a storm.

When Elsa comes of age, the kingdom prepares for her coronation. The castle is finally opened to the crowd again. Among the guests is Prince Hans of the Southern Isles whom Anna meets. The two immediately develop a mutual attraction. During the reception, Hans proposes and Anna hastily accepts. However, Elsa refuses to grant her blessing and forbids their marriage. The two sisters argue, causing Elsa lose control and expose her powers to the guests. Panicking, Elsa flees to high mountains far away and builds her own ice castle, causing extreme winter in Arendelle without her knowing. Anna sets out in search of her sister and asks for a man whom she meets on her way – Kristoff. When Anna and Elsa are finally reunited, Elsa still fears hurting her sister and refuses to go home. Elsa loses her control again when Anna persists in persuading her and tells her about the winter that Elsa accidentally caused. Elsa accidentally strikes Anna in the heart with her powers. 

As they flee, Kristoff notices that Anna's hair is turning white and seeks help from his adoptive family of trolls. They are told that Anna's heart has been frozen, and the only way to heal her is "an act of true love". Believing that only Hans can save her, Kristoff races back with her to the kingdom. Meanwhile, Hans, who had gone on a search for Anna, encounters Elsa's palace and manages to capture her. As Hans knows Elsa doesn't know how to end the horrible winter, he refuses to help Anna and reveals his true intention. He wants to take control of Arendelle, so he plans to let Anna die and charges Elsa for Anna’s death. But his plan is stopped by Anna, who manages to save her sister in her last breath. She then freezes solid. But as Elsa grieves for her sister, Anna begins to thaw, saved by her “act of true love” when she sacrifice herself to save her sister. Elsa finds out how to end the winter, and never shut the castle gates again. 

It’s a great and touching movie! Disney never disappoints me, ever! Its movies always have moral lessons to learn, amazing animation, and fantastic music, too! And the big part is, Kristen Bell is the voice actress of Anna! I always love her! Apparently, she can sing very well. Demi Lovato’s Let It Go – the theme song of this movie, is freakingly brilliant! The idea and plot are genius. I can’t predict anything during the movie. Well, I was suspicious with Prince Hans, for no reason. I just don’t like him. I love Kristoff! And also Olaf (you’ll know who he is after you watch it). Yeah, you better go watch it right away. It’s so recommended! I don’t give 5 of 5 rating for nothing.
