It's actually not been a particularly long wait (especially when compared to the 3 month gap between the US and UK releases of Wreck-It Ralph), but UK Disney fans should be extremely happy to know that Frozen, the studio's acclaimed new hit, is out now!
The film - which opened to record numbers for the Mouse House in the States - has just earned a whopping 10 Annie Award nominations, and, trust us, it deserves them. Prominent UK critic Mark Kermode calls the film "utterly charming" in his review, saying "the scenery looks like a mix of Norway and Narnia." Check out his review, from this week's Film Review show on Radio 5 Live, embedded above.
Another noted British reviewer, The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw, also enthused about the film in his review. "It's a slap-up Christmas treat," he said. "A wide-eyed charmer of a film with terrific musical numbers from Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez... there are lovable characters and a robust, satisfying story with a big heart and a neat twist." Concluding, "it is glorious family entertainment."
Britons may also be interested to know that comedian Jack Whitehall has a small role in the film - more on that here. And Disney have released the entire "Let It Go" scene from the film (one of the movie's best) to try and convince you to see the film, too. Not that you should need convincing at this point... Check the clip out above.
Directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, produced by Peter del Vecho, executive produced by John Lasseter, with songs by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez and voice acting by Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad, Frozen is out now! Here's our review.
