Kids of all ages loved Disney’s FROZEN last week during the media premiere screening.
The audience made up of adults and kids, sat hypnotized as scene after scene flashed by. There was singing, clapping and most of laughter ringing throughout the theatre. After the initial excitement wore off, I made my way out to the lobby area, where a big group of people were mingling.
A older couple walking by smiled and I asked them if they enjoyed the movie. With a huge smile, Mrs. H told me it was one of the best she had seen in a long time. She and Mr. H had debated about coming to see a children’s movie. Now she planned to call her family and tell them not to miss FROZEN.
Continuing my slow walk to the parking lot, I encountered 2 young sisters, talking to several other youngsters they had just befriended. I listened in on their conversation and quickly asked the parents permission to interview them about the movie.
“Hello everyone, my name is Loretta and I am a writer for Chip and Co. I was hoping you could tell me what you thought about FROZEN.” Excited to share their thoughts, they all began talking at once.
The general consensus was that it was great and they loved it. Favorite characters ranged from Olaf to Anna. There was debate over the likability of Elsa but in the end, everyone agreed that she was not wicked. The girls loved how “Anna and Elsa loved each other”. The young boy said he really liked how the “different scenes made the ice and snow look so cool”. That comment led to a discussion about how the snow and ice made it seem cold in the theatre. Returning the topic to FROZEN, the children continued talking. The 4 year old mentioned that she and her sister already had the Elsa and Anna princess dresses. One of the boys said “I liked that the ending was a different.” Another said “actually, the snow and winter parts were so beautiful it made me want to visit Arendelle“. Not be left behind, someone talked about reading a story that said “movie was about a castle in Norway”. I asked if anyone had already seen the princesses at Disneyland. A few looked surprised and turned asking the parents when they would be able to visit the park. I also mentioned Olaf’s skating rink at Downtown Disney and was greeted with shrieks.
The adults ranging from grandparents to young moms and dads began to chime in. All of them ended up sharing their comments as well. One parent compared the love between Elsa and Anna as similiar to Lilo and Noni. “A strong family bond that was heartwarming” Another said the special effects were incredible and “sure to earn Disney a nomination“.
I asked one final question to the group What was your favorite part of the movie? The entire group smiled and almost in unison said – “When Elsa built her ice castle and sang “Let it Go”.
