It's time for me to share my own answers to my blog party questions. :) Those of you who have not participated yet can see the original post HERE. :)
Kristoff and Anna, just 'cause they're adorable. ;)
1. Who is your favorite Frozen character (or characters) and why?
I really love them all, but I'd have to say my top favorites are Anna, Kristoff, and Olaf.
2. Which is your favorite Frozen song (or songs) and why?
I also love "Do You Want to Build a Snowman" and "Frozen Heart". "Let it Go", "In Summer", and "Fixer-Upper" are nice too. Who am I kidding? I really love ALL of the songs. ;)
3. If you could make one change to the movie, what would it be?
4. Would you want to see a Frozen sequel? What would you want it to be about?
I would be interested in a Frozen sequel if it was well done, like the Toy Story sequels. As some of you have already mentioned, I feel that Frozen does well as a stand-alone, and I would hate to see that ruined by a less-than-stellar sequel. I'm sure Disney is looking for ways to make the most of this franchise since it was such a big hit, but the story and the characters have to be there to make any additional films a true success. There have been too many disappointing Disney sequels in the past that have almost ruined the originals for me, because I always think of the sequels when I watch them.
I also think it would be rather difficult for Disney to please everyone with a sequel. For example, so many people loved the fact that Frozen did not focus as heavily on romance, but what a lot of viewers would want to see in a sequel would be more of Anna and Kristoff's relationship, or even their marriage (like Eugene and Rapunzel's in "Tangled Ever After"). And I'll admit, I wouldn't mind that myself, as long as it was set a few years down the road and not right away. This might frustrate the crowd that were so happy with the first film, though. "And we're back to the romance again!" ;)
On the other hand, if they chose to focus on Elsa and Anna once more, there could be a great story there. Think of how interesting it would be to see their relationship grow now that they could be together again. It would be nice to see a little more development of Elsa's character, too. While Frozen was about both of them, a lot of it focused on Anna (which I didn't mind). Maybe the second film could focus more on Elsa.
I have to say, though, I kind of like leaving the ending the way it is. It gives the audience the opportunity to come to their own conclusions about what happened after the movie.
And you know, to avoid all of the possible disappointment, how about this great idea from someone on Pinterest?

5. Ice Palace or Arendelle Castle?
Arendelle Castle...I'm not into icy furniture, and I hate being cold. ;)
6. If you could choose a sidekick from the movie, would you choose Sven or Olaf? Why?
Sven is a big cutie, but I'd have to say Olaf. He would cheer me up when I was feeling blue. :)
7. Do you think all men pick their noses, as Kristoff claimed?
I can neither confirm nor deny this theory, but I have my suspicions that it might be true. ;)
8. Which Frozen character is the most like you (or the one you relate to most) and why?
Probably Anna. I've always been kind of clutzy, and I've always had a problem with just blurting things out and then having to backtrack. :} ("I mean, not fuller...you don't look fuller...") ;)
9. How many times have you seen Frozen so far?
Six. Four times in the theaters, once online for Little Gal's birthday party, and once on Blu-ray Tuesday night. :) And Friday, it looks like I'll be watching it again with a friend who hasn't seen it yet. :D
10. In keeping with my overall blog theme, ;) which of the Frozen dolls that have been released is your favorite? (e.g. the Disney Store fashion dolls, Disney Store Disney Animator's Collection and Toddler dolls, Limited Edition Disney Store dolls, Mattel dolls, etc)
I'm definitely a fan of the Disney Store fashion dolls. I'd love to get the Deluxe Fashion set with Elsa and Anna in their coronation gowns, but not for the $70 it would cost to get it through the store, or the even higher price I'd pay on eBay. :} I'll stick with my original classic dolls...I'm very thankful to have those with how difficult they are to find. :) I love the DAC Kristoff and Toddler Anna and Elsa dolls, too. :) And if I was independently wealthy, I'd go for the Limited Edition Elsa in her coronation gown and the Limited Edition Anna in her winter attire. :)
Stay tuned for more Frozen fun, coming soon!
