'Frozen' is original, outside-the-box
After the film's debut last fall, "Frozen" became a box office hit; it has grossed over $763 million in sales, received a Golden Globe, and won an Academy Award. "Frozen" became an instant Disney classic within months of its premiere.
As the skeptic inside, seeing this movie was not on the top of my to-do list, considering it is about yet another Disney princess that is not part of the original with whom I grew up. The release of this movie and the uproar that followed prompted me to care less, as if liking it would prove me to be an enthusiast of the crowd.
However, as in all things typically resented, it ended up proving me wrong before the movie had reached its finish. What makes this movie different is that the writers for "Frozen" did not want to make a typical, "boy meets girl, girl marries boy, boy saves her life" kind of shindig. They designed the movie to be more rational (despite the occasional snowman talking) and with deeper meaning to its conclusion.
Just a heads up, this will be a bit of a spoiler to those who have not hopped on the "Frozen" bandwagon. Writers Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck decided to make the "one true love" of the story not be your average true love kiss from the significant other prince they just met. The characters in the story were restored by the relentless love of a sister, who embraced her with a hug that could save.
Normally, films do not imprint on me as much, but this one stands out due to its originality, and, apparently, I'm not the only one to think so. According to The New York Times, "love does the trick, but in this case it is sisterly loyalty and devotion rather than romantic attachment."
If you're looking for more to the movie, or a way to express your fandom, "Frozen" may be getting a couple more outlets. Forbes wrote, "To the surprise of absolutely no one, Walt Disney announced just over a week ago that "Frozen" would indeed be getting a stage-based spin-off and various other expansions of the brand." As for making a sequel, chances seem to be slimmer. "Disney Animation has been incredibly stubborn about not making theatrical sequels to their theatrical animated hits" to avoid adding on to a story unnecessarily.
Before "Frozen" begins to thaw out and be stretched thin of all its financial opportunities, let's appreciate its atypical writing and outside-the-box storytelling.
