Undeniable success of Disney’s ‘Frozen’.


‘Frozen’ is animated feature film released end of last year that tells the story of a fearless princess who sets off on an epic journey alongside a rugged, thrill-seeking mountain man, his loyal pet reindeer, and a hapless snowman to find her estranged sister, whose icy powers have inadvertently trapped the kingdom in eternal winter. You may read my movie review of this film here: https://vincentloy.wordpress.com/2014/01/05/movie-review-frozen-2013/.

I enjoyed this movie. The film was met with widespread critical acclaim, with several film critics considering it to be the best Disney animated musical since the studio’s renaissance era (1989 to 1999 when Disney produced many successful animated films that restored public and critical interest in the company). Also a big congratulation to the film for winning the Best Animated Feature on 86th Academy Awards two days ago, beating out other nominees; The Croods, Despicable Me 2, etc. It also won at various other awards including Golden Globes and BAFTA.

The film also won another Oscars; in Best Original Song for ‘Let It Go’. This particular song by Idina Menzel has been reaching extreme worldwide popularity recently. Now, you can even hear over hundred of cover versions of this song recorded internationally at YouTube. If I’m not mistaken, this song is now available in over 30 different languages across the globe. The song is powerful, influential and I’m sure many children would love it. Let it go…Let it go…Can’t hold it back anymore….

Its achievement hasn’t come to a stop yet. On its 101th day of release (few days ago), the film crossed USD 1 billion in box office, hence becoming the 18th film in movie history to break the 1-billion milestone. That is really not easy. It is also now the second highest grossing animated feature film (behind Toy Story 3) As of April 2014, with grossing intake of nearing USD 1.1 billion, it is now the world’s highest grossing animated film (putting ToyStory 3 to second placing) and the second highest grossing film for year 2013 (behind Iron Man 3). Incredible! Truly a nice movie, and I’m looking forward to more of animated films of such quality from Disney.
