Summary of the Movie ‘Frozen’

View attachment 3093
‘Frozen’ features Elsa, who is the princess of Arendelle. She is capable of creating both ice and snow; however, one night she inadvertently injures her sister Anna. Her parents, the king and queen, are able to obtain help from trolls in the area who help them heal Anna as well as remove any memory that she has of her sister’s magic. After her sister is healed, the royal couple isolates the girls in the castle until Elsa gains control over her powers. As a result, Elsa spends most of her time in her room way from her sister (who she is afraid of hurting again). By the time the girls hit their teen years, things aren’t good between them. Then, tragedy strikes when their parents die while at sea during a storm.

Once Else is of the right age, the entire kingdom prepares for her coronation. Anna is finally allowed out of the castle and meets Prince Hans of the Southern Isles who proposes to her during the post-coronation reception. Elsa; however, refuses to grant her blessing for the sudden marriage and while the sisters argue, Elsa’s powers are put on display. In a panic, Elsa flees the palace and accidentally places an eternal winter on the kingdom. Once she reaches the mountains, Elsa creates herself an ice palace and brings to life Anna and her childhood snowman, Olaf.

Anna subsequently goes off to find her sister while teaming up with mountain man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer, Sven. The movie follows her epic tale across severe winter conditions in a race to save the kingdom from winter.
The Chris Buck directed film will be available in widescreen format and is rated PG due to mild rude humor and some action scenes.
