Fearless optimist Anna teams up with Kristoff in an epic journey, encountering Everest-like conditions, and a hilarious snowman named Olaf in a race to find Anna's sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom in eternal winter.

Loosely adapted from the Hans Christian Andersen classic "The Snow Queen," the 3-D animated film "Frozen," is a musical/fantasy/comedy from the Walt Disney Animated Studios. Featuring (in both voice and singing roles) Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel and Jonathan Groff, "Frozen" is the 53rd production in the Disney Animated Classics series.

"Frozen" introduces a new Disney princess, Anna the Ice Princess, joining such familiar Disney characters as Cinderella, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. Mystical trolls, sub-zero surroundings and charming snowmen and reindeer all contribute to the adventure, which involves Anna (Ms. Bell) enlisting a gruff, rugged mountain man to assist her in locating and rescuing her sister Elsa, who's unintentionally trapped the Kingdom of Arendelle in wintry, blustery conditions. Time is obviously of the essence in a race to save not only Elsa, but also the helpless citizens of the frozen Kingdom.

"Frozen's" soundtrack features music from the husband/wife team of Robert and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, noted composers who have contributed on other Disney productions such as Winnie the Pooh, Finding Nemo and Phineas and Ferb.

Most people suffer the pain of destroying your favorite movie by scratching the disc. Maybe your kids are a bit too rough with it, maybe your disc player decides to chew on it or maybe you are just unlucky. Such as:

"I have many bluray discs and Sometimes my kids have damaged them. So I want to keep copy on the kids movies before I let them use them"

"I want to make a digital version of my large Blu-ray collection. In an effort to safe my original discs from being ruined, i'm too late for a few."
