Frozen, Cymplified!

Is Disney’s Frozen still hot in your home? It is in ours! We still sing the songs from the movie. Yes, I am included! :-D

It was Ella’s Christmas program in school that day. She’s the adorable Christmas tree in the middle. My hubby Rix took photos and videos while I watched on with our two younger kids. Afterwards, we had lunch at Shakey’s. Spaghetti, chicken and mojos, anyone? I love family moments like that! And what made it even better was when Rix declared we were going to watch Frozen in the cinema. I was excited and also apprehensive. It’s the children’s very first time to watch in a cinema. What if they shriek, rather loudly, in delight or jump up and down as if they’re watching at home, thus, disturbing other people?

My children surprised me by sitting still and watching intently. And so, I relaxed and enjoyed the movie. I wrote down my thoughts and feelings about Frozen below.

I drew and colored everything except for the colors of the word frozen and the heart, which were done by Ella using oil pastels.

Did you sing along to some words in my poem? :-)

Other thoughts I had on the movie:

  • It might be unfair to Elsa that Anna had no recollection of her sister’s powers but Elsa must live with the guilt of accidentally hurting Anna.
  • I wonder what their parents used to tell Anna regarding Elsa’s isolation. Why did Anna think Elsa was shutting her out?
  • Elsa obviously wasn’t at home in Arendelle because when her power was discovered, instead of retreating to her room and telling everyone to go away, she was the one who took refuge in the mountains.
  • Sometimes the one who has the incredible power is the one who needs to be saved. From herself, most probably.
  • The troll Grandpabbie was mistaken to suggest removing all magic, leading to Elsa’s holding back her beautiful magic and her feelings.

This movie is a reminder for me to embrace my children’s personalities and quirks, which are magical because that’s how God made them! Who is anyone to say that they are weird or abnormal? It would be wonderful if everyone accepts everyone for who they are. Easier said than done, I know, but can we at least try? Everyone wants to be free somehow: Free from judgement, free to be one’s self. Try singing the song Let It Go, it could resonate with you. And, you might get an LSS!

Have you and your kid(s) watched Frozen? What did you think of the movie?

    We just watched Frozen again when it was shown on cable the other night! I like your insights here, especially the ones about Elsa not being at home in Arendelle and the one with the most power who needs to be saved. Really deep! :-)

    Yes we have watched Frozen and I love it. This movie reminds me of the sayings “with great power comes great responsibility.” Also, this movie just show that fear doesn’t help us in any way. And I agree with you, we must learn to embrace what God has given us.

    Unfortunately I don’t know this movie but I’d watch it over Youtube because of the lessons and realizations you’ve learned about your kids from the movie. This is also the reason why Disney movies remain classic! :) Family bonding is truly priceless… Enjoy the week, Cym! :)

    let it go, let it goooooooooo!!! *singing out of tune here* hahaha

    awesome movie review Cym. have seen it with my girl and she loved it! even though she doesn’t have a sister (she’s been asking for one, haha), she loves her only sibling so much despite their huge age gap and differences.

    ps
    love the illustration, great team effort with Ella. it shows how both of you are so talented and creative. :)
