The two royal daughters Elsa and Anna are inseparable and spend almost every minute together in the picturesque kingdom of Arendelle. Anna thinks it's great that her sister has the gift of turning everything she touches into ice, because she can snow it herself in the middle of the night in the palace and turns the nursery into a huge ice rink. But suddenly Elsa withdraws completely, is completely isolated from the outside world by her parents. Anna cannot understand this and over the years tries again and again to persuade her sister to leave the room. When the royal couple dies in a tragic accident, Elsa must indeed leave her refuge, as she must now take over the succession to the throne. But while Anna is overflowing with joy at the reunion with Elsa, she is only afraid that she won't be able to keep her powers under control during the coronation ceremony. And so it comes as it must: when Anna announces to her sister that she will marry the charming Prince Hans, whom she has only just met, and Elsa refuses her consent for this, there is an argument in the course of which Elsa transforms everything in the castle into ice and snow. Humiliated by this loss of control, she retreats into the mountains, unaware that behind her the entire kingdom will fall into an eternal winter. To save Arendelle and bring Elsa back, Anna sets off on a dangerous journey through eternal frost, unexpectedly receiving help from the nature boy Kristoff, his reindeer Sven and the lovely snowman Olaf…
A Disney film has become as obligatory for many as mulled wine and cookies in the run-up to Christmas. With "The Ice Queen - Completely brazen" Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee deliver a at least dramaturgically very classic Disney fairy tale, which can immediately enchant the viewer on a purely visual level and put him in the right Christmas mood. The 3D animation fairy tale is technically a very big cinema, which packs its adventurous story into perfectly implemented images down to the last detail. Getting lost in this world is a lot of fun both in 2D and in the really good 3D.
So far, so good. But in comparison to the last Disney fairy tale "Rapunzel - Neu verföhnt", to which "Die Eiskönigin - Völlig unverfroren" is clearly based in several respects, the story of Anna and Elsa takes much longer to really get going. Especially in the first half hour there is almost only singing, which is a bit exhausting in the long run and always slowing down the story. Moreover, the songs are not necessarily the best that has been composed for a Disney film so far. Sure, some of the melodies are pretty and catchy, but at some point you wish there was a normal dialogue, without someone singing one of his songs again. In the second half, the musical character clearly decreases and when snowman Olaf appears, the entertainment value of the until then only quite nice movie skyrockets.
Olaf is one of those Disney side characters, which you already take to your heart after a few seconds and which completely steal the show from the actual main characters. This is intensified in the German language version by the excellent decision to have the snowman synchronized by Hape Kerkeling. Kerkeling gives the character a very special character, who undoubtedly has the best laughs in the movie. Beside Olaf also reindeer Sven provides for some very amusing moments. Their "human" teammates simply can't compete with the two of them. And they are the ones who make you accept the long and sometimes too narrow vocal interludes in a benevolent way.
"The Ice Queen - Completely brazen" is - especially for real Disney fans - a very nice movie. But in the overall work of the studio, the very free adaptation of the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, who already served as a source of inspiration for "Arielle, the Mermaid", belongs rather to the more mediocre contributions. But for an entertaining and atmospheric visit to the cinema, which has adventure, humour and heart to offer, this is the perfect food.
A short word about the obligatory supporting film, which is very original. Here you first have the feeling of seeing a very old, classic Mickey Mouse cartoon. But suddenly the border between traditional cartoon and modern 3D animation is broken and the result is a really funny fun, which Mickey fans will enjoy very much. Therefore a clear one is valid for pre- and main movie only with small restrictions: Worth seeing!
