‘Frozen’ about to heat up the DVD section at stores

Based on Hans Christian Anderson’s, “The Snow Queen,” Disney’s “Frozen” puts a new spin on an old fairy tale in Disney’s most progressive and successful animated film yet.

Yesterday the “Frozen” DVD and Blu-Ray was released just four months after its initial release to theaters on November 27th, meanwhile, the film continues to pack theaters across the country. In its fifth week in theaters, “Frozen” surpassed the domestic $300 million dollar mark in the box office, joining the beloved (and very successful) “The Lion King” as only other Disney original movie to cross that line. And unlike Leonardo DiCaprio, “Frozen” won an Oscar.

Yes, this movie is that good. The movie’s popularity can be attributed to its modernized themes and animation. “Frozen” is uniquely different and a step in the right direction as far as themes go. The main theme of the movie is love will always conquer fear, and in turn cleverly hints at pro-gay ideas. Also, it helps that the main source of comic relief, a quirky snowman named Olaf, is one of the most adorable, lovable Disney characters yet.

If you haven’t already seen it, “Frozen” is about a Nordic princess named Anna who sets off to find her sister, Elsa, who exiled herself after her icy powers trapped the kingdom in an eternal winter.

A line used frequently throughout the film, including a line rebuking the classical Disney princess movies, “you can’t marry a man you just met,” dialogues from “the love experts,” hints strongest at the main theme of the film: “the heart is not so easily changed, but the head can be persuaded.” Nice one, Disney.

It demonstrates what Pixar’s “Brave” failed to do: women can be strong and independent. Again, unlike the classical Disney films, the male character is not the hero and the villain is not a fat, ugly, obvious villain.

Frozen is out on DVD and Blu- Ray and is still out in theaters.
