Disney is onto something pretty cool with its latest princess picture, “Frozen.” It’s evolving a solid story template that will give its girl movies an identity distinct from the studio’s boy films.

The new movie, verrrrry roughly based on Hans Christian Andersen’s ‘The Snow Queen,” unfolds in a Disney-fied version of 19th-century Norway called Arendelle. There live two princesses and their doting parents (who are not long onscreen; Disney toons typically wipe out parents like Batman origin yarns). There’s rambunctious young Anna (who has Livvy Stubenrauch’s infectious voice as a tot and Kristen Bell’s flawless delivery as an adult). Older sister Elsa (Eva Bella, then Idina Menzel) has the secret, magical ability to chill whatever she touches. Hey, it’s a fairy tale.
