Can't Hold It Back Anymore! @DisneyPictures #Frozen Blu-ray Combo Pack Review

Months and months ago, my daughter and I were given the opportunity to see Disney's FROZEN in theatre. Walking in, we literally thought this was a movie about a talking Snowman. Little did I know at the time, that this movie would have such an impact on us both (or such an impact world wide!) and find a little place within both of our hearts from that day forward. It is just THAT good.

When the new Blu-ray combo pack came up for review, I accepted right away.  Who wouldn't want the opportunity to see Frozen as MANY TIMES as they please?!  We patiently waited for our delivery.  When it came, the Little Miss and the Handsome Mister could not contain their excitement.  Waiting until after lunch to watch it was absolutely out of the question!  After months of checking out Disney released versions of "Let It Go" and "Do You Want To Build A Snowman" via YouTube on repeat, daily, it was definitely time to watch the film in its entirety again.  


FROZEN Available on Blu-ray Combo Pack on March 18th 

Walt Disney Animation Studios presents a chilly twist on one of the most humorous and heartwarming stories ever told. “Disney Animation’s best since The Lion King” (William Bibbiani, CraveOnline) will melt your heart.
Fearless optimist Anna sets off on an epic journey — teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven — to find her sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom.
Bring home Frozen on Blu-ray High Definition — featuring a blizzard of never-before-seen bonus extras with gorgeous animation, memorable characters and unforgettable music. It’s dazzling fun for the whole family!

Of course we all enjoyed Frozen as much the second, third, and fourth times around.  Watching Frozen is almost a daily occurance in our house now.  And the funny thing is, I'm totally OK with that.  I love it too!  The storyline is magical, adventurous and full of truly beautiful messages.  The music is to die for -- You'll catch me singing songs from the soundtrack while cleaning the house, or making dinner.  And the characters are just so full of life! 

Who is this movie for?  There's something for everyone, young and old.  My son is 2 and a half.  He adores Olaf and Sven.  The male characters are his "Superheroes" and he finds as much joy in watching this film as my 5 and a half year old daughter does.  She adores Elsa and Anna, like so many other little girls do.  As a parent, I find the messages about being true to yourself and finding strength from within as important a reminder for grown-ups as it is for children. 

The bonus features are pretty nifty, too.  My son is a huge fan of Mickey Mouse, so the Mickey "Get a Horse!" short is something he really enjoys.  I particularly liked learning the history of the movie in "D'Frosted: Disney's Journey from Hans Christian Anderson to Frozen" and of course my little rock star in training watches the Demi Lovato "Let It Go" music video on repeat.  

Frozen Blu-Ray Combo pack would make a great gift for kids, and kids at heart!  We love, love, love, LOVE this movie and if you're one of those rare people who haven't seen it yet, we suggest that you run out and buy it right now, because we know you'll love it too!
