Stu­dio: Walt Dis­ney An­i­ma­tion Stu­dios Di­rec­tors: Chris Buck, Jen­nifer Lee Dis­trib­u­tor: Walt Dis­ney Stu­dios Mo­tion Pic­tures Re­lease Date: Novem­ber 27 Synop­sis: When Elsa (Id­ina Men­zel), the Snow Queen, finds her pow­ers run­ning amok and plung­ing the king­dom into eter­nal win­ter, she flees the an­gry cit­i­zens. Her op­ti­mistic sis­ter Anna (Kris­ten Bell), teams up with ex­treme moun­tain man Kristoff, his side­kick rein­deer Sven and a talk­ing snow­man named Olaf to find Elsa and re­store sum­mer to the cursed land. The Odds: Dis­ney’s mod­ernist take on the Hans Chris­tian An­der­sen tale has a fe­male-em­pow­er­ing mes­sage, and a re­turn to mu­si­cal form for the an­i­ma­tion stu­dio. Some have pre­ma­turely pointed out that the de­sign is a bit too rem­i­nis­cent of the shop’s last CG fairy­tale, Tan­gled. How­ever, you can never dis­count that old Mouse House magic— Frozen cer­tainly of­fers some of the most daz­zling 3-D CG se­quences of the year.
