Although the film was a box office hit as well as the highest-grossing original animated movie of all time($398.4M), Disney's Frozen, has unforgiveable pitfalls that children of this generation cannot truly appreciate.
I could not help but notice all of the shortcomings of the film, and those shortcomings seemed to outshine the positives. Am I too grown up for Disney movies? Or did Frozen simply fall too short for the standards and expectations of those accustomed to the classics?
Of course I cannot help but be biased, considering I grew up in the '90s when Disney was in its prime; however, I am not difficult to please when it comes to anything Walt Disney, but Frozen was the first one that I was content with seeing only once.
The 4 Pivotal Shortcomings of Frozen:
Every Disney movie has a strong introduction that foreshadows the premise of the main plot. It foretells possible obstacles the protagonists might endure, who the protagonist is and why he/she is important, and gives us a summary of who the characters ultimately are (or going to become).
Beauty and the Beast's introduction introduces the prince who is turned into a beast because of his selfishness while also foreshadowing the premise that the spell must be broken by true love before the last petal falls.
The Lion King introduces the concept of the "circle of life" while Mufasa later goes on to tell Simba the ways of the kingdom, and how one day he will be king, too. This concept comes full circle in the end when Simba overcomes his deceitful uncle, Scar, while proceeding to majestically climb Pride Rock. Tangled efficiently ties together 18 years of details within the introduction: how Rapunzel was a princess, how she was stolen and why, and the importance of her hair. Frozen on the other hand, had an introduction that fell extremely short. Although we get some details, they are vague, choppy, and irrelevant for the most part. It fails to answer the most critical aspects that the audience needs answered.
Why is Elsa cursed? Did her parents sell their souls to the devil? Will she go on some crazy journey to find an explanation and perhaps, a cure? Who is Elsa besides being the main character? What makes her so important? Why should we care about her?
Before seeing the film, I thought that Elsa was the main character throughout the whole film, but the film is more about Anna and her juvenile fantasies as opposed to anything relevant and unique.
People seem to care more about recreating the "Elsa" braid, singing songs that don't fit the plot, and Olaf the snowman, than truly remembering (let alone, understanding) what the story was about.
Which one is supposed to be the primary antagonist?
What hurts the credibility of Frozen the most is probably the sheer lack of character development (or relevance for that matter). The trailer is extremely misleading to that fact as well. The title and the trailer adds to the assumption that Elsa is the main character and almost as if she is the antagonist. Whether she is the protagonist or antagonist, the audience is led to believe she will be more epic and involved in the film than it actually turns out.
Who is the protagonist? By making Elsa and Anna somewhat as of equal importance, it fails to provide a primary protagonist from the two. I understand the creators interest in trying to place the importance of sisterhood above romantic relationships, but that idea is not necessarily achieved. The only time that sisterhood seems to be the front-runner in the story line is when Elsa and Anna were children, Anna's quest to bring Elsa home, and the very end when, once again, Anna is sacrificing herself to save Elsa. Although it is clear that Elsa doesn't need or want a "prince charming," we see Anna consistently falling in love at the worst possible times. There really is no ideal notion of "sisterhood" besides the beginning and the end of the film.
- Elsa: Here we thought she was going to be some strong, independent, female character when in reality, she spends most of the film locked in her living quarters or sulking alone in her ice-castle. She proves to be just a depressing, cynical, and ultimately, a weak woman who has spent the majority of her youth sulking in her bedroom out of fear to harm the kingdom or Anna. Why didn't she use that time to get her powers under control? Why did the creators not utilize Elsa's potential to be a phenomenal character by using her perseverance in order to go on a quest to find a solution to the curse? Elsa had huge potential to make Frozen an unforgettable tale.
- Anna: She appears to be the protagonist. Although naïve and hungry for her "one true love," Anna is the one who ultimately saves the day. It isn't that I don't appreciate Anna's childlike innocence, her sincere actions, and the unconditional love she has for her sister. My problem is that by making her the shining center, she is less appealing to older audiences.
- Olaf (see: #4)
- Kristoff: Although he is a loveable character, there are just so many gaps in his own storyline to the point where he is almost expendable from the movie completely! Questions as to what happened to his parents, why him and the moose are best buds, why was he raised by trolls--- are all left unanswered.
- The Trolls: Why? Why? Why? More pointless than Olaf, the trolls should have never even been included in the plot. Yes, they were important in understanding the curse, but they did nothing but serve as an extra (or dare I say comedic relief) in the movie. Not to mention that the song they sing is the worst of them all.
Aside from who the protagonist should be, another sloppy mishap is that there is absolutely no true villain or antagonist.There are ultimately three different "antagonists" in Frozen: Prince Hans, the Duke of Weselton, and the pack of wolves. Not even all three combined could measure up to the iconic Disney villains such as Scar from the Lion King, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, or Jafar from Aladdin (just to name a few).
One of the most important aspects to the major success of Disney movies is the soundtrack. Whether catchy or dark, upbeat or slower, the best Disney soundtracks are those that fit with the mood and purpose to the plot. The soundtracks are the 'means to an end' in that they flow with the storyline. For instance, The Lion King opens with "The Circle of Life" which is hands down just am amazing song.
- Other songs include "I Just Can't Wait to Be King" (foreshadowing future events), "Be Prepared" (again, foreshadowing future events/moving the plot along), etc.
The songs in Frozen are catchy, yes, but they were inconsistent.
- The majority of the music fails to provide any plot movement.
- The first half of the film included many songs that lacked a purpose, while the second half of the film was completely lacking in any music up until the finale.
To sum things up, the author of Dr. Bok's Evil Movie Blog stated things perfectly:
- "Some songs in Frozen are too poppy; definitely at odds with the opening chant in the film. While the chant does give an interesting sound, the succeeding pop tunes tend to diminish it, which is why when we finally hear that chant again when Elsa finally thaws Arendelle, one can’t help but feel that the motif was underdeveloped."
- "Frozen’s musical numbers are distracting in the sense that it distracts you from the problematic script, and the storyline."
Since when was Olaf dubbed the shining star of Frozen? Not only is he just a pointless come-and-go character in the film, he's only a pointless character in order to be reproduced as a plush toy sold in stores all year round. I thought winter was over, but the franchise cannot seem to "let it go."
Ultimately, Olaf serves no purpose to the plot of the film. Although the trailer seemed to highlight him as a major character, Olaf was simply just an Elsa creation from her childhood. His character completely hinders any chance of depth that the plot truly needs. When things seem to get too touchy or too serious, there he is, providing a snappy phrase that is supposed to be funny but fails miserably. What about that solo song of his? Also pointless, and the whining that he's going to end up in the Disney graveyard only makes me wish he would melt and never come back.
Don't get me wrong, Olaf is a loveable character in his own right; but he did not belong in nor truly fit in Frozen like people think he did.
Canon Stinks on September 03, 2020:
Anna would've lived a simple, carefree, fun-loving non royal home-lifestyle since her childbirth infancy.
Sansa and Arya Stark rock and rule, whereas, Elsa and Anna suck and drool on August 31, 2020:
Sansa and Arya are better written sisters than Elsa and Anna. I'm glad Sansa became Queen of the North at the end of Game of Thrones.
Love Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen. Hate Disney's Frozen 1/2. on August 31, 2020:
We were better off without Disney's Frozen before until 2013.
Sansa and Arya Stark rock and rule, whereas, Elsa and Anna suck and drool on August 31, 2020:
Game of Thrones is better than Disney's Frozen 1/2.
Classic Lovers/Fans on August 31, 2020:
An AU where Elsa's another real natural-born child prodigy, whereas, Anna's born to be another voiceless deaf-mute.
I never ever even like Anna and Elsa as canon sisters. on August 31, 2020:
Disney's Frozen would've been a lot better off with Anna and Elsa as unrelated, sister-less only children in retrospect because they're (Anna and Elsa are) too different to be sisters which would've been more fitting to have them (Anna and Elsa) as unrelated, sister-less only children since they (Anna and Elsa) were more like strangers to each other. Their (Anna and Elsa's) sister relationship's too toxic to deal with. In fact, Frozen would've had a better canon storyline if only Elsa grew up elsewhere in the distant Northern oversized mega ice castle/palace together with canon childless human grown adult outer Snow Kingly/Queenly tycoons far away from Arendelle since she (Elsa) was 8 or better yet, her (Elsa's) childbirth infancy, whereas, Anna grew up elsewhere together with canon childless human grown adult explorers/live wires/simple non royals at hearts who're truly more open minded about magic far away from Arendelle since she (Anna) was 5 or better yet, her (Anna's) childbirth infancy. After all, they (Anna and Elsa) deserved to lack a canon sister on their own because of their problematic, behavioral actions/issues.
I never ever even like Anna and Elsa as canon sisters. on August 31, 2020:
An AU where Elsa's raised by more exceptional, more formal, more intellectual, more natural-born, more precocious, more prodigious, more professional, childless human grown adult fit, real, royal, richer, wealthier, higher upper class, noble, gentry, more affluent, more luxurious, overprivileged, more gifted, more proper, primmer, highborn, magical, supernatural ice powered perfectionists/tycoons who normally show courtly manners in public and cub-less grown adult magical, mythical, tamed, wintery creatures since her (Elsa's) childbirth infancy, whereas, Anna's raised by carefree, spirited, wild, lowborn, lower-class, middle-class, casual, informal, non magic, outdoorsy, ordinary childless human grown adult explorers/live wires/simple non royals at hearts who're truly more open minded about supernatural magic and cub-less grown adult wild magical, mythical creatures/ordinary animals since her (Anna's) childbirth infancy.
Screw Undeserved Canon Sibling Yin Yangs on August 31, 2020:
Elsa and Anna are far too different to be sisters if you ask me.
Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen always rocks and rules, whereas, Disney's Frozen always sucks and drools. on November 28, 2019:
Sister-less always fits Elsa and Anna better if you ask me.
An AU where Elsa and Anna grow up to be Arendelle's classical tale of 2 long lost sisters who live in 2 different, separate, distant foster homes away from Arendelle after one traumatic childhood acci on September 06, 2019:
An AU where Elsa's properly raised by natural, precious human grown adult fit royal real professionals who show courtly manners in public know how to deal with the ice powers, whereas, Anna's correctly raised by human grown adult non royals/unfit royals who show wilderness instead of King Agnarr and Queen Iduna of Arendelle after one traumatic childhood accident.
Neither Anna nor Elsa deserve a sister on their own. on August 09, 2019:
Elsa should've been raised by canon real grown adult fit royals/professionals who know how to deal with the ice powers, whereas, Anna should've been raised by canon grown adult non royals/unfit royals instead of their own parents, Arendelle's royal monarchs.
Frozen Sucks on January 09, 2019:
Anna and Elsa should've came from different Disney canon princess movies instead.
Anna's ugly on the inside/outside anyway. on January 09, 2019:
Ever since the beginning of the movie she bugs poor Elsa from the first second of the movie. She shoves poor Elsa, and then she makes poor Elsa freeze everything accidentally and have the hardest childhood. She's not pretty, either. Her cheeks and chin look bad to me. Boo Anna. I hate her so much. I mean, her lips are just way too thin, thinner than her eyebrows even. Her nose is too low. That streak of hair is just plain old wrong. Sir Jorgenbjorgen's a better listener than the likes of that pain in the butt, Anna.
Snow Queen Elsa would've had telekinetic powers, like Matilda on January 09, 2019:
Snow Queen Elsa - Slender, radiant pale skin, light freckles, rosy cheeks, pink lips, long platinum blonde hair in a French braid, purple eye shadow, blue eyes
Choose Gerda (Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen) over Anna on January 09, 2019:
The problem is her personality is annoying. She's a clueless hypocrite who makes decisions on a whim, runs of without a clue where Elsa is. "I learned not to marry someone you just met, hey, Kristoff, he's the man who I've known for a day or two, LET'S KISS!". And she also get no consequences for her stupidity. She's the prime example on how not to do a classical Disney princess, but at least Rapunzel and Moana are making some good names for themselves.
I'd choose Yuki no Joou (2005) over Disney's Frozen. on January 09, 2019:
Another likable Japanese anime cartoon.
I'd take Gerda (Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen) over Anna any day. on January 09, 2019:
Jennifer Lee, Brittney Lee, and Kristen Bell screwed Anna's canon character up anyway.
I love Avengers Grimm (2015) on January 09, 2019:
Snow White (Avengers Grimm 2015) has ice-control powers, using them to grow icicles as weapons and to freeze people.
Elsa weighed seven pounds when she was born. on January 09, 2019:
Elsa's infancy should've been shown in canon, lazy creators of Frozen.
Good Snow Queens on January 09, 2019:
Elsa, Deidre from the Once Upon a Time series novel Winter's Child, and the other Snow Queen from the 2005 anime of the same name are the only three incarnations of the character to be portrayed as heroic characters.
I'd choose Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen over the Disney's Frozen any day. on January 09, 2019:
Princess Anna and Snow Queen Elsa of Arendelle - Ugh, oh no, not another canon sibling yin yang. Great, just what we need, another canon sibling yin yang.
Snow Queen Elsa Lovers/Fans/Worshippers on January 09, 2019:
I prefer to think of her as quiet, regal, and joyous in canon. I never ever even want to see Elsa being all bubbly and happy-go-lucky at all. Poor Elsa should've been a classical canon character instead of just a plot device with an ill-fitted musical number. And all that because someone scrapped the original ideas to make her look better as a heroine.
Related in the Adaption on January 09, 2019:
◦ The Summer Witch is often made to be the Snow Queen's sister. In the Hallmark adaptation, the Princess and the Robber Queen are also made her sisters as well, having the four represent the four seasons.
The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen on January 09, 2019:
Andersen met Swedish opera singer Jenny Lind in 1840, and fell in love with her, but she was not interested in him romantically (although the two became friends). According to Carole Rosen, Andersen was inspired to model the icy-hearted Snow Queen on Lind after she rejected him as a suitor. The Snow Queen was based on a woman Hans Christian Andersen personally hated for being shrewd and distant.
I dislike Anna and Elsa as canon sisters on January 09, 2019:
Neither Anna nor Elsa deserved no siblings on their own. In fact, neither Anna nor Elsa deserved to have each other as sisters at all.
I wanted a sibling-less/sister-less canon Princess Anna and a sibling-less/sister-less canon Snow Queen Elsa on January 09, 2019:
Anna and Elsa - Oh no, not another sibling canon yin yang. Great, just what we need, another canon sibling yin yang….
Sir Jorgenbjorgen should've been in this movie. on January 09, 2019:
Sir Jorgenbjorgen's cute.
Hate Plot holes on January 09, 2019:
Disney if you screw on this "possible" sequel, then you have a lot of Frozen fans to deal with.
Frozen should've been different from Disney's Tangled. on January 09, 2019:
Frozen kinda gets on my nerves. It's a lot like Tangled.
Classic 2D animation style/technique rocks on January 09, 2019:
Disney's Bolt, Tangled, Wreck It Ralph, Frozen, Big Hero 6, Zootopia and Moana should've been classically animated because 3D CGI ruins our lives.
I'd love to hear Snow Queen Elsa talking in a real British accent. on January 09, 2019:
I'd rather want to hear Snow Queen Elsa speaking in a real British accent instead.
Canon Drools/Stinks/Sucks on January 09, 2019:
Elsa, Olaf, Marshmallow, the snowgies (Frozen Fever) and Sir Jorgenbjorgen really should've came out in classic 2D animation style.
Elsa of Arendelle would've possessed the brown brunette hair, and hair turn would've turn back to platinum blonde back and forth non stop to no end in canon. If any/other ex-Disney animators could get together to create a more classical, full, independent remake in cel animation. If I were Jennier Lee and the other creators of Disney's Frozen, I'd let Princess/Queen Elsa of Arendelle be born to be both a normal, ordinary, brown haired brunette muggle and a magical, unordinary, abnormal, special frost, ice, snowflake platinum blonde muggle born equally in case any/other ordinary magic fearers/haters rather prefer Elsa's ordinary, normal, non magical form over Elsa's magical, unordinary, abnormal, special frost, ice snowflake form.
Hate Anna and Elsa as canon sisters. on January 09, 2019:
I dislike the fact that Elsa and Anna live in the same castle of Arendelle when they've barely seen each other for past thirteen years ago.
I hate canon Anna on January 09, 2019:
Canon would've been better off if Anna was a villain who's truly jealous of her elder sister, Elsa being the firstborn and attempts to get her revenge on her for shutting her out for past thirteen years ago.
Elsa The Snow Queen should've been the title instead of Frozen. on January 09, 2019:
If I were Jennifer Lee, I'd give Elsa both brown/brunette hair and ice platinum blonde hair equally.
I hate rock trolls. on January 09, 2019:
Those rock trolls were the reason why Elsa got scared, they recommended Elsa to be locked up to avoid any damage but they never taught her how to handle her powers correctly.
The Snow Queen's (1957) more memorable than Disney's Frozen on January 09, 2019:
The Snow Queen's (1957) something from my childhood. She's beautiful but most of all she's threatening. She knows exactly what she wanted and that's why I love her, even she isn't nicest person on this world...... She's just most powerful creature and she is full of charisma.
I wish the duke of Weselton was never ever even a canon character on January 09, 2019:
That insufferable Duke of Weselton plans to discover all of the secrets of Arendelle and kill Queen Elsa, thinking that she's a monster and a sorceress just because she has ice powers.
Love Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen, but hate Disney's Frozen on January 09, 2019:
I really wish Disney tried to make a straight on adaptation of 'The Snow Queen' story instead of Frozen.
I detest canon Frozen for what it is the way it is on January 09, 2019:
I really wish there can be a real Snow Queen adaptation one day. It is a great story that really deserves it
Old Classic Disney always rocks and rules, but New Modern Disney sucks and drools on January 09, 2019:
Gerda, Kai and The Snow Queen (Hans Christian Andersen) - Better than Anna and Elsa
Frozen's inferior to more classical Disney films on January 09, 2019:
It really felt like Hans was used as nothing at all but an excuse to bring the two so called "sisters" back together when Anna and Elsa are far much better off without each other since they're more like strangers to each other anyway.
Canon Stinks/Sucks on January 09, 2019:
Elsa would've been born with both brunette like her mother and platinum blonde hair equally in canon.
Snow Queen Elsa should've came out in canon classic 2D animation style. on January 09, 2019:
Canon would've been better off if Anna was raised as a commoner and anything else more than/but royalty.
I love classic animations a lot. on January 09, 2019:
Why Walt Disney never made The Snow Queen into one of his classic Disney movies?
Anna's inferior to any other more classical heroines/princesses on January 09, 2019:
I hate Anna and Elsa's common back story that we get in the film.
I don't like Anna as a canon character on January 09, 2019:
Anna is the worst character to come from Disney in years. She was unoriginal and the same old cliched female character, but just a tad annoying and stale.
I can't stand Anna as a canon character. on January 09, 2019:
Anna's annoyingly stupid anyway, but not Gerda (Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen)
Thumbs up for Classic Disney, but thumbs down for Modern Disney on January 09, 2019:
It's still hard to forgive Disney for ruining our lives with ugly looking 3D CGI!
Elsa and Anna's sisterhood sucks on January 09, 2019:
Elsa and Anna should've grown up to be a classical tale of two long lost (means lost/absent for a long time) sisters of Arendelle in canon because they're more like strangers to each other anyway.
Kai and Gerda's (Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen) friendship's better than Elsa and Anna's sisterhood on January 09, 2019:
I still don't get why Kai and Gerda had to be the names of two elderly servants of Arendelle.
More Than Just the Spare should've been kept as a canon song instead of For The First Time In Forever on January 09, 2019:
It's still tough to easily forgive Disney for cutting the song, More Than Just the Spare because it shows how Anna really feels about herself compared to Elsa.
Blossom's and Elsa's ice powers. on January 09, 2019:
If Blossom (The Power Puff Girls) has ice breath, then shouldn't Elsa have ice breath in canon as well, like Blossom?
Love 2D Traditional cel 2D animations/cartoons, but hate 3D CGI animations on January 09, 2019:
I'm sick and tired of CGI animation! I mean, what happen to the traditional animation? It has that Disney magic which made us feel good and enjoy every bit of the movie, it colors were bright and vibrant, and the emotions, the action, it all had that special feeling. Something CGI doesn't have, and never will...
More Than Just A Spare's better than For The First Time In Forever on January 09, 2019:
Anna: Spare, am I really just the spare
I'm not part of the town, not born to be queen
Just somebody hopelessly in-between
She's the scholar, athlete, poet
I'm the screw up, don't I know it
But then who could ever compare
Of course they're gonna think I'm just the spare
Well, I won't care
So I'm the extra button on a coat
In case another one comes loose
But if I have to be a button
Why can't I be a button that's of use (oops)
I may lack style and I may lack grace
And once in a while I fall on my face
But this little button deserves a place in the sky
This button wants to fly
Wait, buttons can't fly, it doesn't make any sense
So I'm a rusty horseshoe hanging up
Over somebody's old barn door
And I'll be hanging there forever
Just wishing the horse had one leg more
And maybe I can't be the perfect one
And maybe I err on the side of fun
But horseshoes need a chance to run somewhere
This horseshoe is more than just a spare
Someday I'll find my thing
A thing that's all my own
That thing that makes me part of something
Not just all alone
If only all this feeling I have in my heart
Could mean something to someone, how I'd love to play that part
So I'm just the second-born sister
Who most of the town ignores
Like a button, like a horseshoe
Like a girl who's bad at metaphors
Maybe I don't have a magic touch
And maybe I don't have a talent as such
Just this heart with much too much to share
So I'll never be the heir
But I'm more than just the spare (sorry)
I'm still downright mad at Disney for cutting the song, More Than Just the Spare because it shows how Anna really feels about herself compared to Elsa.
Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen rocks and rules, whereas, Disney's Frozen sucks and drools on January 09, 2019:
I love the original Snow Queen fairytale better than Disney's Frozen.
I love Arya Stark of Winter-fell, but hate Anna of Arendelle on January 09, 2019:
Arya Stark's (A Song Of Ice And Fire/Game Of Thrones) a bajillion, trillion, billion, million times more badass than that screwed up character, Anna, isn't she?
Elsa's canon characterization was messed up. on January 09, 2019:
How come Elsa has ice powers, whereas, Anna doesn't?
Classical Disney fairytales are better than the likes of Modern Disney on January 09, 2019:
Disney, are you going to do this to all your fairy tale based films by calling them by an adjective? Ex: Tangled, Brave, Frozen (Rapunzel, The Bow and The Bear and The Snow Queen) What's Jack the Giant killer is going to be called Giant?
I would've easily liked Anna if she hadn't copied Rapunzel in the canon personality department on January 09, 2019:
Why you had to make Anna look like Rapunzel (Disney's Tangled), Disney?
Elsa and Anna should've came from two other different Disney canon princess movies. on January 09, 2019:
I would've been relived if I've gotten a canon sibling-less/sister-less Princess Anna and a canon sibling-less/sister-less Snow Queen Elsa.
Anna's nothing but a Rapunzel (Disney's Tangled) rip off. on January 09, 2019:
Anna even looks like a caricature of Melissa Gilbert as well!
I hate how ugly 3D CGI really looks. on January 09, 2019:
It would've been better off if modern 3d films were also classical 2D style as well.
I can't stand how ugly 3D CGI really looks. on January 09, 2019:
I love classic animated films over made that had the guts to not 3D CGI any of this at all.
I detest plot holes. on January 09, 2019:
Frozen's filled with unquestionable plot-holes, why's Elsa gifted with the ability to manipulate snow and ice, and the plot twist of Hans being the actual bad guy's just plain stupid.
Brothers Grimm's Rapunzel's superior to Disney's Rapunzel. Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen's better than Disney's Frozen on January 09, 2019:
I prefer if they kept the classical, original title that was adapted from a classical fairy tale since it's more creative than simple, boring word titles like Tangled and Frozen. It feels like they're doing a half-assed job on the title just to appeal to both genders, doesn't it? If they kept the classical, original titles like Rapunzel and The Snow Queen, then it would've been easier for me to recognize that it's a classical fairy tale.
Classic Disney's better than Modern Disney on January 09, 2019:
I don’t get why people act like Anna's so great. She’s boring. She doesn’t easily interest me. Anna's such an idiot. I really dislike her character. ‘we finish each other’s s-’ ‘sandWICHES’ like was that supposed to be funny? Anna was a total insult to Gerda the original heroine of the story of The Snow Queen.
Classical tales of long lost siblings/brothers/sisters are more interesting on January 09, 2019:
Hans would've grown up to be the long lost youngest brother of the Southern Isles in canon. Anna would've grown up to be Elsa's long lost younger sister in canon.
Frozen's poorly made. on January 09, 2019:
I love Elsa but why's she the only human in the movie who has magical powers, whereas, her parents and sister, Anna didn't appear to have any powers?!!
I dislike confusions on January 09, 2019:
Elsa isn't even a Princess anymore since her coronation she's a freaking Snow Queen
Canon Sucks on January 09, 2019:
Those parents should've correctly raised Anna to be another more mature person in canon.
Love classic 2D animations/cartoons, but hate 3D CGI animations on January 09, 2019:
Disney really should've came up with nicer, more original ideas, and laid off ugly looking 3D CGI already.
Snow Queen Elsa lovers/fans/worshippers on January 09, 2019:
I'd still rather love to see Elsa in another new longer princess-y/queenly dress in Frozen 2.
Would've been better off if Elsa was another canon child prodigy, like Matilda on January 09, 2019:
Would've been better off if Anna grew up to be Elsa's long lost younger sister in canon.
Love Classic Disney, but hate Modern Disney on January 09, 2019:
Disney has to stop the stupid Hidden Villain trend into its current state of decay already
Love Gerda (Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen), Hate Anna on January 09, 2019:
Anna's a dumb idiot whose only main goal was to find a man as opposed to reconcile with Elsa and had no reason to not leave the castle of Arendelle. And apparently wound up with someone that she was forced to love by little rock shits that are apparently ok with adultery. A guy that she barely knew for two days, had nothing in common with, insulted her, and thought his reindeer dog thing could talk back to him.
Gerda (Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen) rocks and rules, whereas, Anna sucks and drool on January 09, 2019:
I found Frozen to be one of the worst Disney movies that had been ever made. I didn't like how Anna was handled in the final cut at all because she should've also been the other, classical canon sibling-less/sister-less heroine we all know/love just like Gerda from the source material's Snow Queen, but no, instead, she just had to be turned into an obnoxiously insufferable bimbo with no thought, no ambition, either, no talent, and even worse, zero canon character development. Jennifer Lee (writer and co-director) and Kristen Bell (voice actress for Anna) were responsible for making Anna the "overly awkward airhead everyone knows/loves". If Anna were to represent love and warmth, the color green doesn't easily do justice to her canon character. Green's a cool color, while it may represent life, it also represents calmness and tranquility, but the Anna we know's neither calm nor tranquil, she's the exact opposite: feisty. We should've gotten a calmer, more tranquil, less obnoxious, less insufferable, less feisty canon Anna. Pink and magenta better represents her character as her element is love and warmth to Elsa's ice and snow.
Classic Disney's superior to Modern Disney in every way. on January 09, 2019:
I miss those days back when Disney used to make awesome villains a lot. Disney needs to stop using a trope in their recent movies that people have been getting tired of, the twist villain, a character that gets introduced in the film and is revealed as the villain later on.
Any other more classical heroines/princesses are superior to the likes of that Anna in every way. on January 09, 2019:
Snow Princess/Queen Elsa would've had a pure evil, wicked, jealous canon stepmother, like Snow White and Cinderella.
Anna and Elsa are rather more fit to be unrelated to each other/sibling-less/sister-less on January 09, 2019:
Anna and Elsa are more like strangers to each other anyway.
I dislike Frozen for what it is the way it is. on January 09, 2019:
Anna was another naive Disney princess who should've been able to leave the castle of Arendelle whenever she wanted in canon. Elsa had to be locked up (bad idea in the first place).
Both Anna and Elsa would've remained better off sibling-less/sister-less equally in canon on January 09, 2019:
Canon would've been better off if Anna and Elsa have gotten more proper canon character development and grown into REAL more mature women.
Alternative Universe Over Canon on January 09, 2019:
EXTERNAL. THE BALCONY OF ARENDELLE:
"We could easily see the village outside the castle gates which it's comprised of homes, shops, a marketplace, the docks, and the city's clock tower and the mountains, the vast wilderness landscape surrounding this kingdom of Arendelle. It's here that Arendelle's primary export—ice—is harvested. Traversing through this area could be rather dangerous, such as savage wolves lurk throughout." "Oh, man!"
EXTERNAL. THE CASTLE TOWERS OF ARENDELLE
"Whoever still lives here is free to hang and explore."
EXTERNAL. THE ROOFS OF ARENDELLE
"Whoever doesn't easily fear getting on the roof could slide down to escape. Whoever easily fears getting on the roof could rather end up injured or even killed."
INTERIOR. THE DUNGEON OF ARENDELLE
"This is where any criminals are held prisoner, isn't it?" "Yup." "Whoever rather prefers the large rooms hates how small this dungeon is."
EXTERNAL. SMALL KINGDOM OF THE SOUTHERN ISLES
The Southern Isles changed during the time Prince Hans grew up to be the long lost youngest brother of the Southern Isles away from here. "This is where Hans used to live, isn't it?" "Yup." "Hopefully, Prince Hans was correctly trained and taught how to do anything and make any other efforts to rightfully earn the throne of any other kingdom properly in case if not here at all." "Three other princes of the Southern Isles pretended that their youngest brother, Hans was invisible for past two years ago." "No wonder Hans grew up away from here." "You got that right." "After all, Hans deserved to have anything else better to do than being trapped in the shadows of his twelve older brothers." "I know, right?" "Right." "Prince Hans of the Southern Isles is twenty three." "Wonder if twelve other princes of the Southern Isles really miss their long lost youngest brother, Hans a lot?" "I wish I've known."
INTERIOR. SMALL KINGDOM OF THE SOUTHERN ISLES
"Hey, what's this? An old diary of Prince Hans of the Southern Isles?"

Rather than helping their daughter, Elsa to control her powers wisely, they've chosen to hide them instead which made the situation even worst.
Disney's Frozen's not at all a classic anyway on January 09, 2019:
I wish Ice/Snow Princess/Queen Elsa was another canon child prodigy, like Matilda Honey. I wish Elsa had telekinetic powers in canon, like Matilda as well.
Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen rocks and rules, whereas, Disney's Frozen sucks and drools on January 09, 2019:
Stupid Grand Pabbie should've also erased all of Elsa's true, but repressed, traumatic memories of the fateful childhood accident that evening in canon back when Elsa was eight back then, which he never did.
Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen's more classical than Disney's Frozen on January 09, 2019:
Disney's Frozen deserved to be far much better off without the likes of Anna and Elsa's sisterhood because Anna and Elsa are more like strangers to each other anyway.
Snow Queen Elsa's canon characterization should've been correctly developed/explored in the canon movie back then before on January 09, 2019:
If Grand Pabbie wiped Anna's true, but repressed memories of the life-altering accident, then how come he didn't bother to wipe Elsa's true, but repressed, traumatic memories of the fateful childhood accident as well like he should've back then in canon?! Huh?!
Bubbles The PowerPuff Girl on December 18, 2018:
Frozen is terrible, it's a movie about sibling rivalry, and the parents die early!!! (Bambi's Mahahahahahahaahammmm!!!!!)
Alvin And The Chipmunks on November 15, 2018:
I hate Disney's Frozen movie, I love Warner Bros. The Snow Queen ten trillion times more.
Love classic 2D animations, hate 3D CGI animations on September 05, 2018:
I really feel that Elsa was more of a classical protagonist. Elsa should be the protagonist of Frozen 2 to make up for it. I'll never ever even mind Elsa being the protagonist of Frozen 2, she deserves it after all. There's a lot to explore about Elsa since she has many hobbies and talents, and she has her insecurities. I hope I see her develop more, I strongly felt that she was underdeveloped in Frozen 1 due to her low screen time. But if Elsa's that interesting of a character, then how come they focused so much on that Anna and so little on poor Elsa? Huh? It feels like the creators of Frozen actually hated Elsa's canon character so they've given her so little screen-time as a middle-finger to any of these/those who actually wanted to learn/know more about her better. They've purposefully given poor Elsa so little screen-time just to hurtfully spite all of her biggest fandoms. I blame those creators of Frozen of making a less classical, uninteresting, boring, naive Frozen movie plot about that Anna and not taking advantage of the much better opportunity to write a much more interesting, more compelling, more classical story about Elsa herself. Those creators of Frozen should've correctly utilized Elsa's potential to be a phenomenal, classical character by using her perseverance in order to go on a quest to find a solution to the curse properly back then before. They could've at least properly fleshed her out more than ever correctly to be honest. Frozen would've been a million times better movie than ever if only it focused much more on Elsa than ever instead of that obnoxious, insufferable huge pain in the butt, Anna, Elsa's so much cooler and that Anna just ruined the whole entire Frozen canon movie and made everybody else get headaches. I just honestly wish the writers, directors, filmmakers and creators of Frozen have slowly taken more time on this whole entire Frozen canon movie patiently back then before... especially including Elsa's whole entire canon characterization/portrayal which it would've helped any of us to get to know Elsa. Then we would've gotten to know Elsa better/more than ever. They should've correctly developed Elsa's canon personality/backstory of her ice powers back then before properly. In fact, they should've let any of us know where Elsa's ice powers really came from and how was she born with them. Then her canon character development would've been there. Then we all would've seen how Elsa really develop as a canon classical character. Then Elsa would've been a better written canon classical character. Frozen could've at least been a lot, way, far much better than it is/was. Plus, Elsa The Snow Queen should've been a classical canon title instead of that rather less classical canon title, Frozen.
I love Snow Queen Elsa of Arendelle a lot on August 21, 2018:
It would've been rather far much better off if only Elsa and Anna also came from different Disney canon princess movies, because I hate the fact that Elsa's journey isn't the main focus at all like it deserved to be, but I especially hate the fact that it had to be Anna's. Even then, Elsa still would've gotten a ton of personality and development. It's easy to feel for Elsa because many parents can over protective when their children have.... special traits. It happens more in real life than say, not wanting to be a villain. I felt more for Elsa's freedom in Let It Go and the movie's end because we see how much of a toll isolation and rules has had on her.
Disney's Frozen should've always dealt with anything else better/more than only just mainly isolation on August 21, 2018:
Just because Elsa was isolated, didn't mean Anna also had to be cooped up, did it?
3D CGI animations ruin our lives on August 21, 2018:
The Snow Queen - More classical title
Frozen - Less classical title
Love 2D classics but hate 3D CGI animations on August 21, 2018:
(To Snow Queen Elsa) Hello, beautiful.
Anna's nothing at all but a disgrace to classic Disney. on August 21, 2018:
I would've also easily liked Anna more too if she actually had grown out of her clumsiness, had gone outside any/other time she wanted which she could/would've been able to, been in any/other more places than only just one place, had been correctly/properly raised as anything else more than only just royalty, even as a non royal commoner, had grown up to be anything else at heart more than only just another/the second-born crown royal princess of Arendelle she should be since her childbirth but also less isolated anywhere else in the more creative, cooler, more unbeatable, more upbeat, brighter, more high-tech, better, future/futuristic canon modern day setting magical, mythical, fairytale, higher fantasy world/universe away from Arendelle wherever her heart leads without Elsa around, had any/other lessons other than only just royal crown princess lessons, created so many other more fun adventures in order to eliminate all of her other boredom, had any/other goals to achieve, had any/other real life skills/aptitudes/talents to help her develop her intelligence, her maturity, self independence, self defense and self protection, had gotten to gain this and that much real life experience from/knowledge of the whole entire outside real world/reality, had any/other paintings on the walls to talk to her too, had any patience to get to know any/other strangers first and better than ever before in order to be more careful who she really trusts, even Prince Hans of the Southern Isles himself and openly interacted with any other actual, real life people easily in canon if she was so lonely too but/which she never ever even did at all anyway, did she? It's especially all because the king of Aren-delle ordered that the gates were to be closed to in order to stop Anna from trying to escape Aren-delle only just to keep Anna trapped in the same isolation together with Elsa, so Anna couldn't easily go very far at all, could she? The fact that Elsa and Anna are just another canon sibling yin yang who were basically more like strangers growing up isolated, lonely, alone in the same castle together with each other during the separation instead of different castles without each other really bothers me the most to no end at all.
Elsa deserved better, more proper canon character development than ever in the first canon movie. on August 21, 2018:
After the royal couple of Aren-delle took their daughters to the rock trolls to get Anna's head healed, Grand Pabbie should've openly asked Elsa what happened the way Elsa should've told Grand Pabbie about the accident in the ballroom of Aren-delle in canon. Grand Pabbie should've also asked royal couple of Aren-delle what's the opposite of fear in canon too. What that stupid, foolish Grand Pabbie should've done back then before in canon was to also erase all of Elsa's true but repressed memories of Elsa accidentally freezing her sister, Anna's head, too, not only just erase any of Anna's true memories of Elsa's ice powers at all but maybe just healed Anna's (injury?). He could've at least properly delivered his message better than ever back then before correctly in canon. He should've openly told Elsa and her parents an act of true love can thaw a frozen heart in canon. In fact, he also should've actually been more clear with how Elsa needed to control her abilities and stopped her father the king of Aren-delle from going through with his isolation plan back then before in canon too. Plus, her parents could've at least prevented the WHOLE ENTIRE THING in order to bother helping Elsa control her ice powers back then before in canon, so her parents should've correctly encouraged/reminded/showed her how to still love, accept and embrace not only just her ice powers but also be her own true self for who she really was actually born to be with compassion by providing Elsa with more brilliant advice and better guidance as to how to keep her ice magical powers under her own control and not let them be unleashed by an accident at all which it would've helped Elsa become more opened to the others and outside world around her in canon. In fact, her parents should've sent Elsa to any/other less isolated, magical, royal opened environments where she could understand, love, accept and embrace not only just her ice powers but also be her own true self for who she really was actually born to be with compassion in canon. Then Elsa would've had any clue what to do and what she could've/would've done back then before in canon, but she also still would've had much contact, any/other greater royal crown princess lessons and better, more proper, correct training to be a queen of Aren-delle in canon. Then she could've been correctly set/learned how to take better, more proper care of/to manage a whole kingdom in canon. Then she would've been correctly taught/trained to help any of them conquer any other kingdoms properly in canon. That way, she would've always been able to live in love in canon. Then she would've been saved from living in fear in canon. Then she would've always been able to master her abilities with lots of practice and patience all the/other time in canon so she would've had a lot full, higher control of her ice powers in canon. Then she would've still had any fun with her ice powers in canon. Then she would've often used her ice powers as magical, special gifted, talented, skillful aptitudes frequently more than ever in canon. Then she would've gotten better at using her ice powers in canon. Then she would've learned any/other modicums of self-control in canon. Then she would've actually learnt how to use her ice for battle other than only just controlling them with her emotions so she would've had true fighting experience in canon. In fact, she would've had more proper, correct, better weapon training in canon. Then she would've used them to grow icicles as weapons and to freeze any of her irredeemable enemies/foes/opponents in canon. Then she would've used them in combat in canon. Then she would've used all this/that time to get her powers under control in canon. Then Elsa would've always known any/other ways to learn how to control/use her ice powers all the/other time in canon. Then she would've done something/anything/everything much more spectacular/a whole lot, way, far much more elaborate, impressive other than only just turning the palace of Aren-delle into an ice skating rink all the/other time in canon. Then she would've been more empowered than ever in canon. In fact, even though after/if the accident happened, Elsa still would've always been able to freely use her powers to make herself any/other snow friends, any/other way more servants, including ice giants, any/other winter animals/magical, mythical creatures like a giant ice-eagle which are easily used to cold temperature, any/other snow dancers and any/other snow bees to keep her company in order to avoid her friendless loneliness in canon. Elsa would've obviously had much better, more creative/productive uses for her supernatural/magical abilities (such as building public art, even setting up any/other villages for any/other living snowmen/people such as Olaf, his friends and his relatives) in canon. Then she would've had any/other experience with ice architecture in canon. Then she would've had ice breath in canon like Blossom (The PowerPuff Girls). The less she had to keep her ice powers secrets for a long time the better. Then she would've been saved from the isolation in canon. Then Elsa would've been far much more of a dramatic classical canon character and anything else more than only just a past thirteenth year anxious kicked puppy all the time in canon. Then she would've freely lived a better canon life than ever before. In fact, she would've freely lived a better canon life than isolation. Then she would've been more imaginative than ever in canon. Then Elsa herself could've been more very compelling than ever before. Then she would've known how her magic actually works in canon! Then she would've at least solved and undone any of her problems in canon. Then she would've trusted herself in canon. Then she would've developed any other more sighs of maturities, self independence, self protection and self defense in canon. Then she would've learned anything else/everything else in canon. Then she would've had/gone through better, correct, more proper canon character development. In fact, she would've had better, correct, more proper canon character development. Then she would've grown as a classical canon character. Then she would've been better off belonging/living/growing up/being raised to be less isolated, less lonely in a whole entire real fairytale/higher fantasy world that would easily accept her for who she really was actually born to be. The less she had to be too caught up in her own misguidance/insecurities/fears/suspicions/paranoia/concerns/worries/pessimism/anxieties/nervousness/stress for a long time the better. The less she had to just sit in her bedroom all day the better.
Disney's Frozen really should've came out in canon classic cel hand drawn traditional 2D animation/cartoon style on August 21, 2018:
I blame those creators of Frozen of making a less classical, uninteresting, boring, naive Frozen movie plot about that Anna and not taking advantage of the much better opportunity to write a much more interesting, more compelling, more classical story about Elsa herself.

Any/other reasons why Elsa The Snow Queen should've had her own classical film solo that really focuses on her: on January 28, 2018:
Her ice powers!
Her classical hot beauty!
Her more proper ladylike/princess-y/queenly manners!
She's a misunderstood outcast who deserves better and nothing worse at all.
She didn't have enough screen time at all
Frozen was not enough Elsa at all.
Elsa's canon characterization wasn't given enough to do at all like it should've back then before.
She didn't have enough time in the movie at all.
She should've always gotten to use her ice powers.

Just recently watched Frozen for the first time. My thoughts immediately after watching it were, "That's the most poorly written Disney animation I have ever seen."
I can't hardly believe how sloppy the script was for Frozen. What, exactly, happened to cause things to go so wrong and for the film to be released anyway?
