Frozen (2013)

Director(s): Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee. Cast (voices): Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, Idina Menzel. 108 min. Rated PG. Animation.

After many years, Disney is finally practicing originality again. This one is still based on a Hans Christian Anderson story ("The Snow Queen"), but a Disney animation where the protagonists are two headstrong sisters, characters are different shades of gray, some are conspirators hiding as heroes, and all villains are male, are concepts I do not recall the cartoon-making giant attempting at before. And the imagery ... let's just say watching this 3D animation was an immense pleasure in 2D. Makes you wish the icy cold winter shown, would go on forever.

PS: The following disclaimer appeared during the end credits; given the rampant insanity of political correctness, I wouldn't be surprised if this was serious:

"The views and opinions by Kristoff in the film that all men eat their boogers are solely his own and do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of The Walt Disney Company or the filmmakers. Neither The Walt Disney Company nor the filmmakers make any representation of the accuracy of any such views and opinions."
