We haven’t had a new DVD to watch for a while, so my girls were really excited when we received a copy of The Snow Queen to review. Of course, they wasted no time in racing down to the basement to watch it!
“Wishing to create a new world where clean lines replace emotions and the polar wind cools human souls, the Snow Queen has blanketed the world in ice and set out to destroy all art. According to the predictions of a magic mirror, the last threat to the Snow Queen comes from the master glass-maker Vegard, whose mirrors reflect not only appearances but also souls. One day the polar wind takes away Vegard and his wife Una. But they manage to hide their baby boy Kai and daughter Gerda. Time passes, the servant of the Snow Queen finds Gerda’s brother Kai, whom he believes to be Vegard s successor. When Kai is abducted to the Snow Queen s palace, Gerda embarks on a journey across the icy wonderland, facing difficult obstacles and finding new friends on her quest to set Kai free, defeat the Snow Queen and warm the hearts of people everywhere.”
This movie certainly didn’t start out slow. It began with action and excitement that really caught my kids’ attention immediately. In the movie, The Snow Queen is turning everything into ice, and Gerta and Kai manage to escape the frozen fate of their father. They get separated for a time, but are reunited later in the movie. Unfortunately, Kai is captured and taken away to the evil Snow Queens palace and it is up to Gerta to rescue her brother. The ‘good vs. evil story line let’s my kids see that good always prevails!
With trolls, pirates, and even a pet weasel, this movie was really fun for my kids and kept them interested (which is sometimes difficult to do). I honestly didn’t see them until the whole movie was over…..and that means The Snow Queen gets an A+!!
With the freezing temperatures right now, The Snow Queen DVD is the perfect movie for the winter season!
The Snow Queen DVD gets BRAGGING RIGHTS!!
