Did You Know, Frozen’s development can be traced all the way back to the 1930’s? The movie’s origin comes from Disney’s desire to make an adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale “The Snow Queen”. The main struggle throughout the years has been creating characters an audience can relate to and connect with. Originally, Elsa (like the Snow Queen) was the evil villain in the story. However, as the story unfolded it was clear that Elsa was not a bad person, she just made bad decisions in a stressful situation.

    ‘The powers would be too hard to explain, so we just said she was born with
    it’ are you kidding me. Yeah that would be all fine and good in a different
    story (we didn’t need to know how Genie came to be in Aladdin or who made
    the Cave of Wonders) but in THIS STORY, it’s brought up several times with
    different answers saying it IS a curse later or that her powers are the key
    driving point of the entire movie rather than anything else. It isn’t “Oh I
    have to save my friend who’s life is in danger (which happens to be by
    magic)” it’s “Elsa has FROZEN THE LAND in the middle of summer and I have
    to get her to change it back.” It’s entirely revolved around her powers,
    which worked in Tangled because the power the princess had was ONE
    character’s selfish motivation, while the plot progressed because of
    Rapunzel’s own desires to see the world and her growing relationship with
    Flynn/Eugene. Anna was okay with Elsa’s choice to stay in isolation if
    that’s what she wanted but she needed her to control her powers.
    *the powers were the driving force of the narrative, not the relationships*
    and for a movie about exploring different kinds of love, that’s pretty

    I really like the original concept but the story was pushed around and
    rewritten FOR YEARS and it really shows…

  15. GuyWithAnAmazingHat says:

    At the peak of the most graphics intensive sequence of Let it Go, it took
    an average of 8 hours to render a single frame due to all the lighting
    physics of the ice and the huge amount of snow and smoke particle effects.

    It’s pretty obvious where the story is leading to and then suddenly sort of
    cuts off and then takes a turn (but not in a good way). I don’t think the
    story flowed very well, very anti-climatic.
