Frozen Collector's Edition Blu-ray Combo Pack Review

WOOHOO! Finally, I have Disney's Frozen in my collection! Frozen came out on Blu-ray/DVD yesterday and I bought it right away. Several stores had exclusive offers if you buy it from them. Bestbuy and Futureshop offered some kind of activity book or journal, Walmart offered an Elsa or Anna Infinity figure and Target offered an exclusive DVD with special features. I chose to go with Target since it was a few dollars cheaper there ($22.99 but with 5% off by using my REDcard) and I cannot resist extra special features! 

Frozen, is Disney's 53rd animated feature very loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen. It is about two sisters, Anna (Kristen Bell) and Elsa (Idina Menzel), who were once very close but were forced to separate when Elsa's ice powers almost killed her younger sister. Fast forward to Elsa's coronation as queen, where her powers were exposed to everyone. In panic, Elsa flees into the mountains but not before covering her kingdom in ice and snow. Anna goes off in search of Elsa to bring back summer, teaming up with mountain man Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), his reindeer, Sven, and a funny talking snowman, Olaf (Josh Gad), along the way.

It is an amazing movie with amazing songs. The film has amassed over $1 billion at the box office, won a several awards including two Oscars - Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song and continues to break records. It is my favourite movie!

 The combo pack contains the Blu-ray, DVD version and a digital download code of the movie.

 Special features included:
  • "The Making of Frozen" - a musical starring Josh Gad, Jonathan Groff, and Kristen Bell singing about how Frozen was made - but not really.
  • D'frosted Disney's Journey From Hans Christian Andersen To Frozen - this is a look at the earlier attempts at making this film. It actually took them more than 70 years to make this movie! Worth the wait because it was amazing!
  • Four deleted scenes introduced by Christ Buck and Jennifer Lee - "Never Underestimate the Power of Elsa," "The Dressing Room," "Meeting Kristoff #1" and "Meeting Kristoff #2".
  • Four music videos of the pop version of "Let It Go" from the end credits
  • And the Mickey Mouse short "Get A Horse!" that played before the film in theatres.
I was a little disappointed with the special features. I wanted more! Where's the ACTUAL making of Frozen and there's no commentary?

Target's exclusive offer was this bonus disc that had a deleted scene, the Voices of Frozen featurette starring the filmmakers and cast members, and a Frozen Art Gallery. The deleted scene featured Anna chasing a pig through town. It was pretty funny! It was the referenced in the other deleted scene that is on the Blu-ray. 

I have a hunch that there will be a re-release of the film, like a Special Platinum Collector's Edition or something in the future because there's no 3D version in this combo pack and it was release in 3D in theatres. But for now, I'm pretty satisfied with this version. I can finally watch it over and over and over again. Multiple Frozen movie nights with friends! Yaaaaaay!

You can buy the Collector's Edition of Frozen on for only $19.97 right now! And it's already the number one bestselling Blu-ray/DVD! I've heard the Collector's Edition has been selling out at some of the local stores. Good thing I bought mine first thing in the morning! It's a must for any Frozen fan!

Yeah, loved it. I especially like that Kristen Bell is so funny and upbeat even in real life! I hope she gets cast as Anna in the Broadway version as well. There has been rumors.
