MCS #22: Frozen guest post

Frozen (2013)

Welcome to this week’s Morning Cartoons Saturday. For the first time (in forever), I’m hosting a guest. She’s here today to talk about Disney’s newest hit animated feature, Frozen. Please welcome Amarilys Acosta.

Five Frozen Quotes That Got Me Thinking

I’ve been a fan of Disney Princess movies since forever. Even now that I’m older, the last three that have come out—Tangled,Brave, and Frozen—have managed to strike a chord with me. I can still identify with many of the things these princesses go through and empathize with the story presented in the movies. So, below I want to share with you five of my favorite quotes from Frozen which I watched recently…and then re-watched the day after because it was that good.

Grandpa Troll: Born with the powers or cursed?

This quote got me thinking that all of the princesses before have been cursed or affected by a curse. Ariel is cursed by Ursula to have no voice. Pocahontas isn’t cursed, but magic is still worked on her by Grandmother Willow so that she understands the words of the foreigners. Rapunzel’s magic hair is the reason Mother Gothel kidnaps her, so it’s sort of a curse. Merida puts her mother under a curse spell. And on and on the examples. Elsa is the first princess to be born with power of her own, and yet the way they handle it becomes her curse. But it was nice that Grandpa Troll made the distinction between the two states—born with power or cursed.


Grandpa Troll: The heart is not so easily changed. But the head can be persuaded.

The old adage of follow your heart comes to mind. The heart knows the truth and it’s never confused about what it wants, but the mind…yeah, easily changed and confused 100% of the time!

Kristoff: You know, most people who disappear into the mountains wanna be alone.
Anna: NOBODY wants to be alone.

We aren't saying you can change him
'Cause people don't really change
We're only saying that love's a force that's powerful and strange
People make bad choices if they're mad or scared or stressed
But throw a little love their way, and you'll bring out their best
True love brings out the best

I really loved that they included these lines in the song! Love is not about changing the person, but about sharing your love with them. And maybe your love and care will open them up and turn them into something better.

Olaf: Love is putting someone else's needs before yours […] Some people are worth melting for.

How love should be always = Selfless.
