Disney's Frozen Collector's Edition Review

Since its release in theaters, Disney’s Frozen has become a world-wide phenomenon. Not only has the film continued to break records at the box office, but it finally brought home the Oscar for “Best Animated Feature Film” and “Best Original Song” for Let It Go.

After having seen it in theaters and participating in one of the sing-along versions, it is no surprise to most that I would be making Frozen part of my Disney collection. I received the Collector’s Edition that offered not only the Blu-ray, but the DVD and Digital Copy. The crisp, beautiful colors come through brilliantly on Blu-ray. It even includes four versions of the Pop version of Let It Go. Demi Lovato performs the version featured in the credits while the other four videos are performed by Martina Stoessel (Spanish & Italian) and Marsha Milan (Malaysian).

The only negative thing I would say is that I wish there were more special features. I really love seeing what it took to make these films and history behind its origin. Some of the videos that had been leaked at the time of release and what I thought would be in the featurette just wasn't there.

However, Alice Davis (wife of the famous Marc Davis of Disney’s Nine Old Men) was featured in D’frosted: Disney’s Journey From Hans Christian Andersen to Frozen. She shared some of Marc Davis’ drawings for an attraction created for Disneyland where the producers for Frozen took some inspiration from. It was something that really hit home for those who yearn to always have a connection with what Walt Disney had been involved in while he was alive to what the Walt Disney Company is doing with those ideas and entities.

Overall, Disney’s Frozen Collector’s’ Edition is ultimately the way to go. At least in a household that has multifunctional digital gadgets will definitely make a difference to have both of the DVD Blu-ray and digital copy.
