"Would you like to build a Snowman?"

Based on the classic fairy tale The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen, Disney's Frozen is nothing short of being a masterpiece - and is arguably the most accomplished, enjoyable Disney musical since Beauty and the Beast. A bold statement perhaps, but this enchanting tale has been majestically brought to life on the big screen, in what is a worthy return to form for the often vilified studio.

So we are introduced to princesses Anna (Kristen Bell) and Elsa (Idina Menzel), sisters who at a very young age were inseparable and the very best of friends - until a harmless, childhood game turns foul when Elsa accidentally hits her younger sister with her magical ice powers. Fearing for her life, the King and Queen rush Anna to the Trolls, who bring the young girl back from the brink, and as a precaution they wipe her memory of any notion of magic, replacing it with good, clean, wholesome fun.

As a result of the incident, the King and Queen also separate the girls, who are now forced to grow up without one another, and Anna struggles to comprehend why that might have been the case. Tragedy then falls when the King and Queen are lost at sea, and after many years, the now grown up Anna and Elsa must open the doors to their palace for Elsa's coronation as Queen. However it's just a matter of time before tragedy strikes yet again, when Elsa accidentally casts the Kingdom into a never ending winter. Though barely recognisable, Anna sets out to save her sister with the aim of restoring both their relationship - and their Kingdom -  to its former glory. However when Anna confronts Elsa in her daunting ice palace, things don't exactly go according to plan and Anna finds herself on the receiving end of these dastardly magical powers yet again, turning into a dramatic race against time to save her life.

Frozen is just a beautiful film; not only the animation but the songs and the music too, complimenting the impressive ice effects, which are simply dazzling - most notably the ice palace that Elsa constructs after she exiles herself and takes control of her fantastical abilities. Along the way, Anna meets ice merchant Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), his loveable reindeer Sven, and the madcap Olaf voiced by Josh Gad, who is a living snowman, who hilariously, and somewhat naively, longs for the summer. Olaf is the stand out character, though that's not to take anything anyway from the rest of this entertaining collection of memorable characters. Though an Olaf centric spin-off would certainly be welcomed.

There is so much depth to Frozen, as a film suitable for the kids, big kids and even the most adult of adults to enjoy. At the centre of the story is the longing to reunite with family, it has a lot of heart and will keep you engaged from start to finish. So is Frozen really the best Disney musical since Beauty and the Beast? You know what... It might just be.
