DVD Frozen : Disney has another hit in its repertoire with this Oscar-winning, heartfelt story of sisterly love. And it’s one of the few films released in 3-D last year that splendidly incorporates the technology into the plotline. The animated musical, which was adapted from Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen, immediately pulls at the heartstrings with the introduction of toddler Anna (Kristen Bell), who adorably tries to wake up her older sister Elsa (Idina Menzel) for playtime. Little Anna knows of Elsa’s incredible gift to turn everything she touches into ice and urges her sis to create a winter wonderland in the grand hall of the family’s castle. Accidentally, Elsa hits Anna with an icy blast that changes their relationship.

    Let It Go, sung twice on the soundtrack, by Menzel and by Demi Lovato, is one of eight original songs by Robert Lopez (Avenue Q and The Book of Mormon) and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (Winnie the Pooh), but the standout number is the beautiful ballad For the First Time in Forever. Bell harmonizes perfectly with Broadway veteran Menzel on the duet. On DVD and 2-disc Blu-ray/DVD combo pack.

Also new: American Hustle; Saving Mr. Banks; Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom; Reasonable Doubt; Flu; Legendary; Swerve
