Frozen phenomena

So I have sons and didn't know about the Frozen movie until I saw friends post youtube videos of different people doing covers of the songs from the movie. When it came on pay tv I had to rent it and watched it with my 5 year old. Needless to say we were hooked. We must have watched it about 3 times until it got cancelled. I was so impressed with the movie. My son enjoyed it and we sung along in funny ways to the songs until he told his boy mates about it and an older mate told him it was a 'girl' movie. I told him it's not really and we talked about it then he was okay again about liking it!
What I loved was the fact that the sisters saved each other as for once it wasn't about a prince's kiss that saved the day. I liked that it changed the usual fairy tale ending of prince saving the girl but instead that the girl(Elsa in this case) can channel her power and strength and save herself and others. Also Anna's determination and belief in her sister that she made the trek alone until Kristoff to bring her back. I like that the 'love' that saved the day was that of a sister, a sibling and not a 'lover' as such. So power to family love. As fun as Anna was I think all the little ones were drawn to Elsa because of her powers. Every little one is drawn to super powers after all! I read an article that thought it was interesting that Elsa was more popular but I think it comes down to the fact that Anna was your everyday fun sister whereas Elsa was the mysterious, glamorous and super-powerful sister. What little girl wouldn't want to magically build her own ice majestic castle and superheroes are all the rage after all. 
So five stars to Frozen from this mum:)
