Disney has reinvented their princess line with movies like Tangled and Brave (technically a Pixar film, but man does it play like a Disney movie), and judging by this trailer Frozen is going the same route. Gone are the days of Snow White and Sleeping Beauty being bit players in their own adventures as their princes do all the heavy lifting. Not that Rapunzel didn’t have a love interest, but her rapport with Flynn was made central to the plot and she certainly didn’t sit on the sidelines for the film’s action.
And that’s what we’re getting with Frozen, a film that either to its benefit or not looks an awful lot like Tangled in the arctic. Check out the first full trailer below,
I mean really, Anna and Rapunzel could be sisters. And speaking of sisters I was disappointed we didn’t hear anything from Idina Menzel‘s Snow Queen in this trailer, but perhaps that means it’s so good their saving it. Overall, Frozen looks hilarious, though again, in much of the same vein as Tangled. The little snow guy, Olaf is either going to be a hit or a headache, I’m still unsure which, but he did get more than a few laughs out of me. What I think has impressed me the most is Kristin Bell‘s work as Anna. She’s not only funny, but in a self deprecating manner that’s so rare for a Disney princess. (Is she a princess? I might be assuming here.)
Frozen will hit theatres of November 27th–oh that coveted Thanksgiving weekend. I’ll definitely be checking it out, will you?
When a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, Anna (Bell), a fearless optimist, teams up with extreme mountain man Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) and his sidekick reindeer Sven on an epic journey to find Anna’s sister Elsa (Menzel), the Snow Queen, and put an end to her icy spell. Encountering mystical trolls, an amazing and comedic snowman named Olaf, Everest-like conditions and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.
