Now there's so much to be said about this clip, but I'll start by saying that it's the most powerful sequence in a Disney film, in my opinion. This is the best "I want" song in Disney's library, second to maybe Part of That World. And it sounds like just the kind of song Howard Ashman would have written. Howard would have understood Elsa completely, and he would have penned lyrics that revealed her pain as well as her power. "Let it Go" celebrates being an outsider. As someone on twitter said, it's more an "I am" song than "I want."
|The cold never bothered me anyway...also, teach me to be fearless and frigid Queen Elsa.|
|I"m never going back / the past is in the past!|
Onto the animation. How do I even describe it? I don't even need to! It's all in the video. But it's all so gorgeously rendered. This is the type of sequence that should make everyone realize how powerful animation is; how it's such an important art form. This is something that thrills and impresses people of all ages. This sequence is already a classic.
