i did not find it broadway-like at all. most broadway shows have a very clear musical direction and theme and all of the songs flow nicely together and make a lot of sense together, and imo the songs in frozen did not
my first love was patrick stump and it didn’t work out because he doesn’t even know i exist but one time i got to see him sing live so that’s cool (actually like 9 times)
i actually found olaf really funny and was surprised by how much i liked him, i was fully prepared to hate him. i thought in summer was a cute song, but i do agree that it wouldn’t have been a huge loss if they’d cut it.
i like to think sitron got to stay in arendelle and became good friends with sven :>

animation was lovely, esp. on scenery and snow and elsa’s magic and especially especially the palace. kinda weak on facial expressions tho, noticed a lot of weaknesses during let it go. voice acting was very strong for named characters, but background characters had hella weak voice acting. the songs were good individually but the soundtrack as a whole has an unclear direction, like they didn’t know what kind of vibe they were going for. poppy? musical theatre? who knows. olaf was a pleasant surprise - comic relief in all the right places, silly but not the kind of silliness that you get sick of after three jokes. the trolls (and fixer upper, to a certain extent) felt really out of place, their character design didn’t really seem to fit with the aesthetic of the rest of the movie. that may have been on purpose, but i didn’t like it. the plot twist with hans was expertly written and handled - you wouldn’t have known unless someone had told you beforehand or if you have knowledge or a lot of experience with writing and analyzing writing. i called the “act of true love” being an act of sisterly love from about a million miles away, but it was still a nice twist on the usual true love’s kiss storyline. overall, it was a good movie, heartwarming and sweet, but it had its flaws and it didn’t really meet my super high expectations (because you can’t compare a movie to the lion king and expect me to not have astronomically high expectations)
i stand by everything i’ve said about it in the past. it was in poor taste to remove most of the female characters from the original fairytale, and even poorer taste to have an entirely white cast of characters with only a few unnamed people of color in the background. not a fan of how disney added not one, but two romantic subplots to a story that (as far as i know) did not even have one to begin with. i would have been happy with a few queer characters, but the same goes for all hetero-heavy mainstream media. i get that frozen is more loosely based on the snow queen and not a direct adaptation, but i don’t like that they changed so much of the source material and ended up with a final product that is very problematic and not even a little bit inclusive or representative of the audience it was marketed to.
