The Disney studio added another animated smash to its inventory, plus Oscar wins for best animated feature and best song ("Let It Go"), with this hugely successful fantasy adapted from Hans Christian Andersen’s "The Snow Queen" and sparked by a woman (voice of Idina Menzel) with the gift – and curse – of turning anything, or anyone, to ice.
She runs away to stop herself from hurting those she loves, but her sister (voice of Kristen Bell) goes in pursuit. Jonathan Groff is heard as the seeker’s partner in adventure, with Josh Gad hilarious as an offbeat snowman named Olaf. DVD extras: theatrical trailer; music videos; "Get a Horse" short subject. *** (PG: AS) (Also on Blu-ray)
