IT is not hard to warm to what this ex­cel­lent new Dis­ney an­i­mated fan­tasy has in store for its all- ages au­di­ence. When the roy­ally bred Elsa ( Id­ina Men­zel) loses com­mand of her mys­ti­cal power to gen­er­ate ice and snow – plung­ing the whole of her king­dom into an end­less win­ter – she goes into hiding in the moun­tains. Elsa’s plucky younger sis­ter Anna ( Kris­ten Bell) is un­der­stand­ably con­cerned and be­gins an ur­gent search. Frozen melts the ici­est re­sis­tance by virtue of qual­ity writ­ing, vi­brant vi­su­als ( well worth the 3D pre­mium sur­charge) and a brace of catchy mu­si­cal set- pieces. The pacing is sprightly, the story is de­cep­tively in­volv­ing and the voice cast meet the chal­lenge of bal­anc­ing com­edy, drama and song with con­sum­mate ease.
