I like Frozen… the secret is out. I’m sure I’m betraying the solidarity of mothers everywhere who incessantly whine about the movie and its soundtrack, but I like it. I like it more than my kids do. I often hum or sing the songs. They’re regularly in my head.
I like Disney, in fact. The animation is astounding. Love the developments each time.
I don’t care if the story lines have faults – they’re for kids. Kids don’t care. I don’t care.
I love the characters – even the traditional princesses. Yes, I like them, too.
But I do love Frozen. I love Maleficent, too – just an aside there – because everyone else seems to hate that one as well – but I loved it.
I could easily be Elsa. Seriously. Who wouldn’t love the ability to throw ice bolts and freeze stuff? And in time to the music to boot! She is currently my role model. I could definitely grow up to be Elsa.
I dislike that the phrase ‘let it go’ is now so cliched… but I love the song… and i love the fact that if you’ve trodden that ‘let it go’ path, it makes sense! It really does. The moment when she realises that it just doesn’t matter anymore – all the rules, all the regulations, all the people…. let it go.
My kids find me amusing. Frozen is not one of their favourites. My eldest likes traditional princesses. The youngest doesn’t like anything at all if you say you do… And my baby dragon is definitely NOT a princess – I defy anyone to try to tell her otherwise… Her favourite show at the moment is Dr Ouch… or maybe Dinotopia… or Phantom of the Opera… or something along those lines… something without princesses….
I will need to have a Frozen party of my own when they are out 😉
