Animation is evolving into one of cinema's most important artistic and commercial genres. It is also a key component of children's movies, though it can also be appropriate for young adults. Animated movies are publishing storytelling abilities, and they are transmitting certain messages through the movie. As a result, when thinking about the concepts, meanings, or terms that animation or animated films are attempting to convey, it will somehow seem to stimulate viewers' interest and motivation to figure out the film's deeper meaning. For instance, the issue of assisting young adults in understanding gender roles and self-acceptance has not been thoroughly explored. Throughout the years, there are many animated movies released and Frozen (2013) is one of the significant animated films that has received a lot of love until now. Hence, this paper intends to analyse the influence of Frozen (2013) on young adults’ perception of self-acceptance and gender roles, which includes determining how animation affects social behaviour and will affect young adults' perceptions of gender roles and levels of self-acceptance. To reach the objectives of this study, a quantitative research method will be used, along with a convenient sampling technique and an online survey questionnaire. This research is aimed at 100 young adults aged 18 to 30 years old, who are interested in animation and have watched Frozen (2013) before. The results indicate that the 2013 movie, Frozen can promote the notion that one should learn to accept their flaws since nobody is perfect with the agreement of the majority of respondents. The movie also suggests that gender stereotypes can be altered as well. For instance, the main female characters, Elsa and Anna can play dominant roles and embrace flaws while the males, such as Kristoff can also become supporting roles. To conclude, this study is helpful to the animation field and people may have a better idea, in terms of learning positive values through animated movies
