Why is Disney Frozen so popular?
A master of its craft, Disney is renowned for creating award-winning animations that steal the hearts of viewers. However, the Frozen obsession is unlike any other, and fans worldwide are unable to ‘let it go’. So, why is Frozen so popular in comparison to other Disney movies?
From its nuanced characters and plot points to a multi-platinum tracklist that brings the narrative to life, Frozen has it all. But it also offers a spectacular twist on the classic fairy-tale arc, breaking the mould by featuring not one Disney princess but two, each with equally unique personas that stray from what’s expected.
Plus, Queen Elsa’s transformation from villain to hero struck a chord with viewers of all ages, as she embraced her flaws with the help of her sister and friends and turned them into strengths.
With so much success, it’s no surprise that Disney Frozen toys are so sought after, which is why we’re proud to offer a varied selection at competitive prices. Whether you’re searching for Disney Frozen arts and crafts for school activities or Disney Frozen Funko POPs to add to your collection, there’s something for you.
