Social Stigmas and Disney: My “Frozen” experience

I watched Disney’s award-winning movie “Frozen”  for the first time very recently with my Mum. She was loaned a colleague’s daughter’s precioussole DVD copy of the animated hit movie. I knew a little about it, the well-known “Let It Go” song, and there was a blonde girl called Elsa in a blue sparkly dress; I knew nothing of the storyline.
