Watch Frozen Online (2013) Or Download Frozen Movie hassle Free. Disney's Frozen teems with gay themes long before it hits its stride. It tells the story of Elsa, a princess from the land of Arendelle endowed with inexplicable, ice-emitting powers that shame her parents. In childhood, she injures her sister Anna during snowy playtime, and the half-stone trolls beseeched with healing Anna's wound ask if Elsa was "born" or "cursed" with her gifts. (Fans of the similarly queer-friendly X-Men saga will note some striking parallels: Elsa develops a can't-touch-this mutation a la Rogue, while Anna's trauma leaves her with the Marvel character's white-streaked hair.) Mom and Dad do acknowledge that Elsa was born this way, but after having Anna's memory wiped, they nevertheless urge Elsa to remain in the family's castle, its locked gates signifying the girl's closed-off, guilt-ridden heart. "Conceal, don't feel," the princess is taught to tunefully recite in the film, which is based on Hans Christian Anderson's The Snow Queen, and hinges its chief conflict of eternal winter on the dangers of emotional suppression.

This animated musical recalls a recent op-ed piece by writer and mother Joy Martin-Malone, who professed why drag queens are better role models for her daughters than Disney princesses. A perfect essay for the post-Brave era, which at last seems ready to decry Disney's longtime trend of male-dependent beauties, Martin-Malone's rant lamented her toddlers' embraces of Ariel and Cinderella, and assured she'd never endorse their waiting for someone else to make their dreams come true. Better to take after the work ethic of RuPaul and her pupils, the mom argued. While it does nothing to help the Mouse House's other problem of protagonist whitewashing, Frozen could be the rare Disney-princess flick that Martin-Malone, and those like her, deem worthy of their girls. Voiced in adulthood by Idina Menzel, Elsa, now queen, sees her secret spilled in humiliating fashion, leading to a kingdom-fleeing that's marked by shame and, finally, liberation. Building herself a mountaintop ice palace that gives Frozen's animators a workout, Elsa belts and struts her way through a gotta-be-me power ballad, and though the film ultimately insists that Elsa not be a fierce queen, but a magnanimous one, the moment is unmistakably drag-esque—a self-styled fabulization.

Perhaps it's appropriate that Frozen doesn't become remarkable until Elsa's rousing coming out, but that doesn't help the overall weakness of the movie's first act. The prologue involving Anna's injury fires off foundational plot points like a gatling gun, and it's alarmingly nuance-free, even by old-school Disney standards. What immediately follows is as transparently inept as it is naggingly expositional, with Elsa conveniently tucked away to make room for Anna's characterization, and scenes like one that snakes through a town of gabbing civilians, just so each can serve up a different piece of necessary narrative. Most egregious are Anna's early exploits; voiced as an adult by Kristen Bell, she's handed forgettable songs about the collateral suffering she doesn't understand (she, too, has been locked in the castle, alongside the sister who shuts her out), and implausibly falls for handsome Prince Hans (Santino Fontana) at Elsa's gate-opening coronation. Once the ostracized Elsa's frosty id plagues Arendelle with sub-zero temperatures, and Anna literally heads for the hills to hunt her down, the hasty Hans courtship is cheekily ridiculed by Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), a burly ice salesman who proves helpful in the search. But while Kristoff's knowing jokes may let Frozen retract Anna's regressive, insta-love delusions, it can't repair the subpar music, bumbling dialogue, and half-hearted scene-setting that comprise the opening chunk.

In fact, though Jennifer Lee is credited with penning the entire script, as well as co-directing with Chris Buck, the disconnect between what precedes and follows Elsa's escape is extreme enough to suggest each part was written by someone vastly different. The goings-on of Anna and Kristoff's quest are fresh and funny, particularly when they come across Olaf (Josh Gad), a Mr. Potato Head-like snowman with an endearing, blissfully ignorant hankering for summer. And while they're initially explored with thin familiarity, the film's empowering themes of feminine strengths and bonds eventually flourish in novel fashion. There are men among Elsa and Anna, but none are essential to either woman's self-realization, nor do men hold the key to Arendelle's revival. Beyond allowing Disney to release a film that's apt for the holiday season (and one that, to boot, is notably secular), it's never clear why Elsa could summon the tundra in the first place, just as it's anyone's guess why Arendelle's theme music sounds African in nature. But what matters most is something that would surely please Disney-princess-fatigued moms: These sisters, both queens in their own rights, are doin' it for themselves.

Frozen keeps this trend alive with a 3D princess tale loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen. Little girls and their moms will appreciate the story's light-hearted female empowerment theme along with its accent on sisterly love. Two sisters, the melancholy Elsa (voiced by Idina Menzel) and her younger sister Anna (Kristen Bell), grow up in a gigantic castle after losing their parents in a shipwreck. Elsa has special abilities which she has tried to keep hidden lest anyone consider them to be "dark powers." She can create snow and ice by merely moving her hands. During her coronation, she is unable to stop this magic, and everyone in the kingdom learns of it. The new Queen runs off in retreat from her royal duties. Meanwhile, even though Anna has fallen impulsively in love with a dashing and confident Prince Hans (Santino Fontana), she decides to go on a quest to find her sister. Along the way, she is assisted by Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), a wilderness savvy mountain man, and his emotionally sensitive reindeer Sven. They are accompanied by Olaf (Josh Gad), a silly snowman who tags along and even sings an ode — "In Summer." The most memorable original song is "For the First Time in Forever."

Everything old is new again in Hollywood these days, so it only makes sense for Disney to attempt a revival of the animated musical brand that dominated the early ’90s. The canny nostalgia play of Frozen arrives just in time for Thanksgiving, catering not just to kids but also the parents who grew up quoting dialogue and humming tunes from Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King and Aladdin. The downside of trying to rekindle that unique magic is that Frozen feels a little like a Las Vegas tribute show: it hits all the recognizable beats without quite capturing the soul of what it’s paying tribute to. Very loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic story The Snow Queen, Frozen stacks the deck with big bold songs, scheming villains, wacky sidekicks, cuddly characters (ready made to become holiday merchandise) and not just one but two (!) new Disney princesses. Parents won’t complain about anything that holds their interest while also keeping kids entertained for a couple of hours. Still, even with eye-popping animation, solid voiceover performances and a feisty feminist slant, Frozen falls short of recent Disney princess high points Tangled and, especially, the live-action Enchanted, instead delivering mixed results closer to The Princess and the Frog and Pixar’s Brave.

The story begins in promising fashion with young sisters Anna (initially voiced by Livvy Stubenrauch) and Elsa (Eva Bella) sneaking out of bed for some late night mischief in the family castle. Elsa, the elder of the two, isn’t just an average princess. She was born with the ability to conjure snow and ice with her bare hands. That means the sisters can skate, sled or build a snowman whenever they please, much to young Anna’s delight. Unfortunately, Elsa’s incredible gift soon feels more like a curse when an ice-related accident leaves Anna injured and their parents forbid Elsa from using her magic. A terrified Elsa locks herself away in her bedroom, essentially abandoning Anna whose memory of the event has been erased by a kindly troll king (Ciaran Hinds). Not that Anna (now voiced by Kristen Bell) is willing to give up on her sister so easily. She’s delighted when Elsa (Idina Menzel) comes of age and ascends to the throne, but trouble arises again when Elsa’s powers go public during an argument over Anna’s love-at-first-sight infatuation with charming visiting prince Hans (Santino Fontana). Elsa stuns her assembled subjects with angry bursts of ice and snow, fleeing to the mountains and literally freezing over her entire seaside Scandinavian village in the middle of summer. Local dignitary the Duke of Weselton (Alan Tudyk) proclaims Elsa a monster, but Anna knows better and resolves to track down her sister and bring her back to the kingdom.

Elsa, the most compelling and conflicted character, is disappointingly marginalized when the focus shifts entirely to Anna’s standard hero’s quest. Despite the fact that Elsa is the character with the story’s dramatic arc, Anna is the plucky, spunky and cute one, so she gets the spotlight. She also gets the love interest—not just Hans, but also orphaned mountain man Kristoff (Jonathan Groff)—and the wacky sidekick, an irrepressible talking summer-loving snowman named Olaf (Josh Gad). Elsa gets a power ballad. If that sounds out of balance, it is. Elsa and Anna’s bond is the crux of the story, but never receives the loving care and attention afforded in Disney’s significantly superior previous feature, Wreck-It Ralph. The lackluster character work here is all the more surprising since it comes from Wreck-It Ralph co-writer Jennifer Lee, who gets sole screenplay credit on Frozen and also serves as co-director with Chris Buck (Tarzan and Surf’s Up).

Co-songwriter Robert Lopez contributed to irreverent Broadway hits Avenue Q and The Book of Mormon, but the middling adult contemporary compositions he offers up here (composed with his wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez) owe a far bigger debt to the blockbuster, Wicked. Menzel predictably belts over Elsa’s soaring, sappy, “Let It Go,” an anthem of banal self-acceptance that can’t make up for the movie’s lack of interest in her character. Most of the songs are pleasant if forgettable, though Anna and Hans share an enjoyably quirky duet titled “Love is an Open Door,” and Olaf’s show-stopping comedy number “In Summer” provides one of the few moments when Frozen fully lives up to the Disney’s classics that have come before. A more substantial mix of tradition and innovation is on display in the seven-minute treat Get a Horse!, which accompanies Frozen as a bonus opening short. The latest Mickey Mouse adventure combines the original 1928 designs of Mickey, Minnie Mouse, Clarabelle Cow and the villainous Peg-Leg Pete with 21st century 3D animation techniques in a witty delight perfectly timed to Mickey’s 85th anniversary.
