My Frozen Experience.

If you haven’t seen it yet, stop reading this and go. Now.

I kind of want to leave this review there as that’s really all that needs to be said, however I think perhaps I need to work a bit harder -especially considering how long it’s been since I posted anything. Yeah sorry about that.

So for those  living under a rock Frozen is the most recent Disney movie and as an avid Disney fan it took me a lot longer than it should have to actually go and see it.
The first experience I actually had of this film (other than what has been running around tumblr since it was released) was my older sister telling me to watch a YouTube video of one of the songs featured in it.
I was at work when I got the text so decided to watch it on my lunch break – big mistake. The song in question was “Do You Want To Build a Snowman”, if you have experienced this song already you will understand the emotional storm it creates within even the toughest of hearts. Added to the fact I was already a little emotional that day was the fact that it was my real life sister that suggested listening to it – a song about sisters. Needless to say I almost had a minor break down in the office and had a sudden urge to hug every single person I saw that day and tell them I hope that they have a great relationship with all of their siblings.
I was a mess.

Anyway after getting over that ordeal I went and saw the entire film with my sister, mum and Grandma, it was a three generation outing.
First off the attendant giving us the tickets had to check we had the right film as “It’s a kids film” excuse you but your facts are incorrect Disney it not for children……
Once we assured him this was in fact the film we had planned to watch we sat in the smallest cinema ever, seriously it was like being in someone’s lounge. But what better venue to watch Disney in, all we were missing were slippers and a cup of tea.

The film itself is utterly beautiful, the songs, the characters and the story all lend themselves to Disney perfectly. Not only that but many of the characters are voiced by massive Broadway stars; I don’t know what more you could ask for. Idina Menzel is a real life princess and if you disagree then you are wrong and need to be punched in the boob/dick depending on gender.
Now obviously I am still undecided on my favourite song although “Let It Go” will make you feel like you could cure world hunger, poverty and every illness ever all at the same time.
As for the characters I think – and I say think as it changes daily – Ana is my favourite just because she is awkward, naive yet strong and is most importantly, undoubtedly always herself. I feel that she is the kind of female role model all young girls could look up to …. Other than the whole wanting to get married after meeting the guy just that day, but we can forgive her that as she got distracted from day dreaming about boys by wanting to stuff chocolate in her face. I think that was the moment I decided I loved her.
I would also happily share my carrots with Sven….. or Kristoff... okay definitely Kristoff.

I shall now end this post as I started it and say to everyone regardless of if you are male or female, how old you might be or whether you are a Disney fan or not (but come one who isn’t) go and see this film when you can. 
Oh and expect to be singing nothing but these songs for the rest of your life.
