AT CINEMAS: New Disney, Frozen (PG)
11:43am Thursday 5th December 2013 in What's On
TAKE Hans Christian Andersen’s Snow Queen fairytale, give it a modern Disney dusting and what have you got? Latest animation Frozen, which opens this week at the Odeon, Taunton.
Elsa is the young girl with the power to create ice and snow from her fingertips.
As children, Elsa and her sister Anna (voiced by Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell respectively) take full advantage of Elsa's magical abilities when playing together.
But when a late-night accident almost ends in disaster, it seems things will never be the same again.
In the fall-out, the King (Maurice LaMarche) wipes Anna's memory so she forgets her sibling's hidden talents.
Elsa, meanwhile, retires from public gaze, fearful that she will hurt someone else with her powers.
But when the King and Queen are subsequently lost at sea, Elsa reluctantly emerges to claim the throne, only to be sent back into obscurity on her coronation day, when her gloves come off.
The locals, witnessing her icy powers, brand her a witch, and Elsa flees to the snowy mountains to live alone in a castle of ice.
Anna gives chase, leaving the kingdom in the hands of her trusted sweetheart Prince Hans (Santino Fontana).
As she ascends towards Elsa’s hideaway, Anna meets hunky ice trader Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), his loyal reindeer, Sven, and a blissfully naive talking snowman, Olaf (Josh Gad).
