Elsa was a princess who had the magical ability to create ice and snow. one night while playing, she accidentally injured her sister Anna. since then she was kept locked in her room, causing the girls to grow apart as they grew up. after the King and Queen were killed in the sea during a storm, Elsa was to be their new Queen. however during a confrontation with Anna, Elsa released her powers and set the kingdom in eternal winter. Anna was determined to find Elsa, teaming with with a mountain man Kristoff and his reindeer Sven.
it was odd waiting for Elsa to take the spotlight then finally realizing Anna was the main character. the love pouring from Anna to Elsa was overwhelming, it was moving and quite different from what we were used to see in Disney movies. the adventure was beautiful and engaging only if we weren't waiting for Elsa to appear. it was quite disappointing to be seeing so little of Elsa comparing to Anna, who was just human. Elsa remained mysterious until the very end, hidden along with her magical abilities. fortunately the animation was captivating enough to get us through until the very end.
