Three of my Favourite `Frozen´ Alternatives

Frozen is Disney’s twist on the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, The Snow Queen.

It just so happens to be one of my favourite fairy tales, so as you can imagine, I had high expectations for the movie.  Did it match them?

Sure it did!

But we need something to watch when it ends, so it’s time to find out – what are the best movies like Frozen?

Here you go, three great movies that match up to our frosty favourite.

***
`The Little Mermaid´ (1989, Ron Clements, John Musker)

Disney’s earlier Hans Christian Andersen adaptation should definitely be your first stop.

I think Anna and Ariel would get along great, don’t you?

Our favourite red-haired mermaid does get to switch legs for fins

They’re both fun-loving and adventurous, and I bet Ariel would totally be up for building a snowman.

And though nobody wears an ice dress, our favourite red-haired mermaid does get to switch legs for fins.

Pretty cool, no?

SIMILARITY MATCH: 80%
Danish origins, deceptions and a ‘transforming into your true self’ theme make these movies a great pair.

***
`Beauty and the Beast´ (1991, Gary Trousdale, Kirk Wise)

Like in Frozen, good and bad aren’t straightforward here – Beast, Gaston, you don’t have to look far for examples.  And that’s not all that makes this film interesting.

I love snow.  I am unbelievably jealous of Elsa’s powers, so you can imagine how much I love the snowy scenes in this movie.

It also features another one of my favourite attributes of Frozen, anthropomorphic things!  If you can’t get enough of Olaf, you’re in for a treat.

A whole castle full of enchanted living objects, and they’re all so darn lovable.

SIMILARITY MATCH: 80%
Frozen fans will love the snowy scenes, unexpected heroes and anthropomorphic cuties.

***
`Mulan´ (1998, Tony Bancroft, Barry Cook)

This accidental Chinese warrior princess has to go against her family to protect them and save her country.  Oh, but it’s not all dramatic, nail-biting stuff.

Who wouldn’t love their own, personal dragon?

We meet cute, funny friends like Mushu along the way.

But where Mulan really competes with Frozen is in the ballad stakes.

Christina Aguilera recorded the movie’s signature track, so if you’ve got Let It Go memorised, give Reflection a try.

SIMILARITY MATCH: 60%
Its gender politics lend a different tone, but Mulan and Anna are two tomboyish heroines – and its theme song competes in the ballad stakes.

What are some Movies Like `Frozen´?

Any I missed?

We all love Anna, Elsa and their wonderful, icy world.  But it’s not a long movie, and it ends all too soon, so we definitely could use the help of these three films.

Maybe you’ve seen one or two of my choices already?

If you did, let me know what you thought!  And if you haven’t caught them already, I hope my suggestions give you some alternatives.

Now to Ask a Favour

Have you got any similar movies to recommend?  I know there must be plenty more movies that are like Frozen out there, so let’s hear it.

Great sibling movies?

Dazzling effects and magical lands?

Unforgettable soundtracks?
