As with all new movies at the El Cap, we got a special show, by "Images in Ice". I thought that it was kind of lame because the sculptures were clearly partially pre-made, as we could see the form that would come out of the ice even before they started carving. I know that they didn't have time to make the intricate designs that they showed on the slides, but I really wasn't whelmed by the whole thing. Yay, they're pretty girls with chainsaws who dance around and carve ice. Whatevs.

I was hoping that we'd get a trailer for "Maleficent", because I know that Dodie would have liked to see the one that I saw the night before, but I guess they're saving that for another time.
The short was "Get A Horse", which we thought was going to just be a classic MIckey cartoon, but it ended up being a whole lot more, using 3D so that the characters popped out of the movie screen. It was a lot of fun, and very clever. Nice one, Disney!
On to the main event:
- Kristen Bell has a lovely singing voice. I really liked her character of Anna.
- I couldn't make out Idina Menzel's voice...until Elsa started to sing. Then, I thought, "If that's not Idina, then I haven't listened to 'Wicked' enough." Turns out that I have, and it was interesting that she was playing someone with magical powers again.
- "The cold never bothered me anyway." Love it!
- Sven reminded me of the reindeer that dance in the Very Merry Christmas parade at Disneyland.
- So is the white streak in Anna's hair from when she got hit by the magic when she was a kid
- "Oh, look, I'm impaled."
- Love the disclaimer about boogers at the end. Also, someone gets credit for "caffienation"?
- The icicles hanging from the trees were amazingly beautiful.
- "You're gorgeous." -- That's so me when I'm being an idiot in front of Pella.
- "Watch out for my butt!"
Well, that was enjoyable! The theatre lobby was themed really well with the snowflakes everywhere. I hope that everyone enjoys this movie as much as my friends and I did.
