Idina Menzel (Elsa) Kristin Bell (Anna)

My comments:  This was a great story - at the end it said it's based on the story of the Snow Queen, which I'm apparently not familiar with, so I'll have to look it up.  The faces of all the characters were really beautifully crafted, giving each a distinct personality.  And the winter-ness of it all was just spectacular!  (Both Ella and I really enjoyed the little snowman, Olaf, and all his antics...)

Ella's comments:  I really liked crystals and freezing.  I loved the end when Anna turns to ice and her sister hugs her and starts to cry. I really liked the music - everything about it...the singing, the songs, and the singers.

Rotten Tomatoes:  Featuring the voices of Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, "Frozen" is the coolest comedy-adventure ever to hit the big screen. When a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, Anna, a fearless optimist, teams up with extreme mountain man Kristoff and his sidekick reindeer Sven on an epic journey to find Anna's sister Elsa, the Snow Queen, and put an end to her icy spell. Encountering mystical trolls, a funny snowman named Olaf, Everest-like extremes and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.
