Disney’s Frozen has no doubt been the turning point that Walt Disney Animation Studios has been looking for. The Walt Disney Animation Princess Revolution began with The Princess and the Frog, followed by Tangled and finally Frozen. Now the question that is on everyone’s mind is: Why is Frozen still so popular? Frozen premiered in the U.S. on November 27, 2013, 2 full years ago, yet Frozen is just as popular now as it was then.
Disney has definitely cashed in on the popularity of fun-loving characters, Anna, Elsa, and Olaf. They have gone on to produce multiple attractions through out the Disney Parks as well as ticketed events in Disney’s Hollywood Studios during this past summer. Thats right, this past summer, during Frozen Summer Fun, people actually paid ($69/adult and $39/child) to have reserved viewing of the different Frozen shows in Hollywood studios! Personally, I believe that it is ridiculous of Disney to charge this price for something that simply should not cost extra money.
Also, wait times to meet Anna and Elsa have been ridiculously high! Sometimes longer than 2 hours and kids still want to dress up as Anna and Elsa for Halloween!
So here’s my opinion: I think that this is the first modern, exciting (as seen through little ones eyes) Disney Princess movie that has happened in a long time. Times have changed and young kids no longer relate to Belle or Jasmine. Maybe its the new technology used to create the movie, or maybe it’s the storyline. I personally see Frozen on the same level as the other Princess movies but my younger counterparts obviously disagree.
