Review: I love Disney! And I love that this movie brings back the musical theme of a Disney movie. Recently, Disney movies have had music playing, but has not been quite like a musical that Disney movies once were. The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, The Jungle Book, and Beauty and The Beast area all great examples of Disney musicals. I thought that Frozen really captured the same theme as these films as the sisters and other characters are constantly singing in this film. On that same note, the song, “Let it Go” has been a major hit and won the Academy Award for best original song. Not only did I love the music and the famous Disney theme, I also love that the hero in the film is not a prince. In this film the bad guy is the prince, and the heroes are Elsa and Anna. A FEMALE is the hero in this Disney film, which is completely out of the normal context. I think that this is awesome to show the film’s young viewers that women can rise above, save themselves, and reach any goal possible. It really is empowering to show young girls that they do not need men to rely on, and only need rely on themselves.
