Watch Frozen Online Mere moments after “Frozen”, the latest of the 2D-esque CG 3D animated Disney musicals, forebodes of a “Frozen Heart”, the movie contradicts itself by thawing the viewer’s heart with one of the simplest stanzas to hit any screen; the line goes “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?”; only “It doesn’t (really) have to be a Snowman”.
Despite the song’s unremarkable demands, making a “Snowman” is emotionally complex business: the layers are made up less of snow and more on distance, love, and simple joys of growing up. In one way the song is exactly what “Frozen” is about: growing up and maintaining familial ties – and not incidentally – the mantra clips easily with Disney’s “family first” philosophy.
Watch Frozen Online Adapted from Hans Christian Andersen’s fable “The Snow Queen”, the cast, and the material’s inherent despair, is shuffled around for cinematic benefit.

Anna (voiced by Kristen Bell) and Elsa (Idina Menzel) are princess and sisters. One is spunky and raring to go places; the other confines herself in her room because she has a terrible gift – she can freeze things. With powers that can go berserk any moment, Elsa’ best friends become a pair of gloves that keep her away from human touch – an aspect literally placed on-screen in the form of the door separating the sisters.
Watch Frozen Online The king and the queen, compassionate but unwise people, respond to Elsa’s predicament by shutting the castle doors, cutting down the number of help, and storing away expensive silverware. In mid-song, the king and queen’s ship gets gulped by the sea, and Anna, who like everyone else has no idea about Elsa’s escalating powers, is left asking “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?”
The thing with musical numbers is that it can make time go fast.
Elsa turns eighteen. The day when she is legally crowned as the queen, her powers lash out turning their kingdom into a land of perpetual permafrost and sharp stalactites. Scared by the sudden shift from “poor lonely princess” to “burn the Witch”, Elsa runs away, singing the vocal powerhouse “Let it Go” – aced by Ms. Menzel – after all the “the cold never bother (Elsa) anyway”.
Watch Frozen Online Anna goes after her, giving Hans (Santino Fontana), the youngest of the thirteen princes from a neighboring kingdom, temporary charge, because a) Anna, in a fit of love-rush has announced their engagement to him, and b) because Hans really sounds like a decent, “too good to be true”, find. (Cue the quirky romantic number: “Love is an Open Door”).
Following Elsa’s trail, Anna meets up with Kristoff (Jonathan Groff) – and of course, with his puppy dog-like reindeer Sven (what are animated movies without melt-your-heart-cute animals) – and brokers a deal to take her to her sister’s place: a lonesome Ice Castle, raised on tilting sides of a mountain top by Elsa.
A dozen or so trolls (the good natured kind, who sing “Fixer Upper” like the opening from “Fraggle Rock”), a snowman who wants to “feel” summer, and a roaring frost giant add themselves to the movie without any actual necessity other than to be faithful to Mr. Andersen’s fable, and to support Christmas sales (who wouldn’t want to have a snow man that can fall to pieces on their shopping list?).
