Some Thoughts on Disney's Frozen

See more stills from Frozen on Disney Animation's Tumblr


For those of you that know me, it should come as no surprise that I saw Frozen at the theater a few weeks ago.  Ever since I've been thinking about some of the unconventional elements of the story, so I thought I'd share those.


~~SPOILERS BELOW~~


“Cold, cold, cold, cold, cold!”


1. Unlike most stories, the act of "true love" was not romantic but family.  I thought this was important. I mean, like most of us, even Anna thought she needed to find her "Prince Charming."  Not once, but twice.  This really stood out to me since in every other story, the prince must give true love's kiss or give the shoe back or something.  Have their been any other stories like this where the act of true love is from a family member?

2. She was the victim and the hero.  Not only was Anna in peril because of her sister, but it was her act of putting herself in harm's way for her sister (the one who harmed her, albeit by accident) that showed Elsa the way to control her powers.
