FROZEN, the milder Snow Queen story by DISNEY (2013) 3D

"She's my sister, she would never hurt me."-Princess Anna
It's been more than two months since I've watched this movie at the new mall in Barangay BF Homes and I still have a hang over.  As my friend Kristen said that glorious day we watched the movie(not together), if TANGLED was great, this is even better.  

As of late I have watched this movie three times.  Once with my folks, once with a friend and once with my nephew(who watched it for the nth time).


It's such a beautiful adaptation.  Even if it is an animation, it's real as real could be.  Yes, the people looked like dolls, but the story was weaved so well.  If I may say so, even better than the original.

The Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen made scary stories for kids.  They made most, if not all, stepparents evil to the core.  That's so unfair(I actually wrote something about this before)!

Hans Christian Andersen's SNEEDRONNINGEN or The Snow Queen, is a tale in 7 stories.  Even if Harvard Classics presented it for children and adults, it was still very grim.

Disney's FROZEN presents a totally different story and a very misunderstood Snow Queen.  


I'm glad that Disney updated this story and they also changed the way their characters fall in love with each other.  When I was a little girl I thought it was the norm to fall in love the very day you met and marry each other a little while later, even on the day itself.  Today, that's not advisable, with the crime rate and all.  One's life story shouldn't be featured in CSI or Law and Order or Calvento Files, even if fictionalized.


Thank goodness the characters have chances to get to know each other first and build up a friendship, rather eloping a few hours later.


In this story, Anna thought she fell in love with Prince Hans the first time she saw him and yet...



"Hang on, you mean to tell me you got engaged to someone you just met that day?"-Kristoff to Anna while riding on a sleigh/sled

I won't elaborate, just in case you haven't seen the film.


It breaks the barriers society has created and make us forget even just for a while all those stereotypes.


The songs are very inspiring.  Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell rocked. Even if I liked Idina's version better, Demi Lovato's version in the closing credits was good too.


Sigh.


I'm so in love with the story and the music.


Kudos to EVERYONE involved in this classic. Yes, I believe it will be. 





Idina Menzel's movie version of LET IT GO


This version of "Let It Go" is from the 2013 Disney movie Frozen. It is composed by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez. This version of "Let It Go" was a nominee in the Golden Globes for best movie song. Demi Lovato sang it well too, but Idina's rendition reaches soul.

THE LYRICS:

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen
A kingdom of isolation, and it looks like I'm the Queen
The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
Couldn't keep it in; Heaven knows I've tried
Don't let them in, don't let them see
Be the good girl you always have to be
Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know
Well now they know
Let it go, let it go
Can't hold it back any more
Let it go, let it go
Turn away and slam the door
I don't care what they're going to say
Let the storm rage on
The cold never bothered me anyway
It's funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can't get to me at all
It's time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me,
I'm free!
Let it go, let it go
I am one with the wind and sky
Let it go, let it go
You'll never see me cry
Here I stand
And here I'll stay
Let the storm rage on
My power flurries through the air into the ground
My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around
And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast
I'm never going back, the past is in the past
Let it go, let it go
And I'll rise like the break of dawn
Let it go, let it go
That perfect girl is gone
Here I stand
In the light of day
Let the storm rage on
The cold never bothered me anyway!
