    I think it is a little too early to call this a “classic”, it must stand the test of time. Frozen was a good animated movie, but I would not go as far as to compare it to the original Disney classics just yet, the movie has not even been out for a year.

    It is obvious Disney is very eager to cash in on this film, they are trying very hard to convince people that this is one of the “best” animated films ever. They have spent much more $ promoting Frozen then the average Disney movie.

    Walt Disney Co may lo longer lure kids with McDonald’s Happy Meal Toys …. but it hasn’t stopped the Bob Iger regime @ the Burbank HQ from schilling to death anything they can which succeeds at the Box Office ! ;-)
