Frozen #Review

Top Ender, Big Boy, Daddy and I were lucky enough to be invited down to a premier of Frozen Disney's newest animated film. We'd seen the trailer for it months ago, a snowman sneezed his nose into the middle of a frozen lake, where a reindeer (who acted more like a dog) tried to get at it presumably to eat it and we were excited. We were even more excited to know that they were taking inspiration for the film from one of my favourite Hans Christian Anderson stories, The Snow Queen.

We LOVED the film.

I know, I know. Every time I see a Disney film I fall in love with it, and I claim that the latest one is the best so far and that this one is magical. You need to remember though that I am a true Disney fan (I've even seen films that some of the people at Disney I sometimes talk with haven't) and I'm also someone who appreciates a good story and Frozen is that.

Princess Anna, Olaf the Snowman, Kristoff and Sven the Reindeer

The musical score is fantastic, the children and I haven't stopped singing Let It Go, or Do You Want To Build A Snowman or my favourite Love Is An Open Door and when the Soundtrack was released a few days ago I was amongst the first to buy it! See below for a chance to win your own copy.

There are some moments in the film that will have you crying, laughing and recognising your own family dynamics, even though none of you are the sister to or indeed the actual sister who is a Princess with powers to create snow and ice.

There is one moment when the audience realises something that I don't want to be a plot spoiler, but when we were watching the film every single woman in the audience gasped in shock. I think it takes something truly magical to take in envelope an entire theatre into a story.

Queen Elsa from Frozen

I really do suggest you go and see this film this Christmas, it's feel good, it's got great music, great imagery and it's got snow! 

And if you do happen to pop into the Disney store, they have the most adorable Toddler dolls of Anna and Elsa which I'd really like for Christmas. TE.

Sorry Top Ender, seems to think this blog post is her Christmas wish list. Seeing as she's not looking right now I'll let you know that I've brought the dolls for her, because as she said they are rather adorable and will sit nicely with toddler Merida from Brave.

Now for the giveaway. We have 3 copies of ‘Frozen’ The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack - which features a recording by Demi Lovato - to give away. Frozen OST is out to buy on 2nd December from Walt Disney Records and includes music and songs from the festive new movie from Disney.  All you have to do is leave a comment below answering What is your favourite thing to do in the Snow?
