You know, I just realized something this morning.

I remember seeing Frozen for the first time and being unhappy that it didn’t follow the original Danish story “The Snow Queen” (which it was inspired by) at all. As in, not at all.

In the original story the Snow Queen is an older, immortal being who is completely isolated from the world and kidnaps children to keep her company. She’s not evil, just lonely and insane. Eventually the children die from exposure and she goes out and finds more. The story follows a girl searching for her kidnapped friend. When she rescues him, the Snow Queen sees their love and bravery and releases them willingly, showing that her heart is still human.

Then it hit me:

Frozen is the prequel.

This is the Snow Queen before she loses her mind, slaughters everyone in the kingdom, and begins kidnapping kids who remind her of how much fun she and Anna used to have as children.


Edit: When people ask "How did you like the movie?" this pretty much sums up my feelings - www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQLhXh…

EDIT EDIT: I recently saw this interpretation of the film here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Tc5K9… It's from a straight and probably extroverted point of view who connected with Anna the most. I wasn't able to think of the movie in the direction he takes it (since I was completely unable to connect with Anna myself) and he makes excellent points here.

Well that would make sense, even if it is a little frightening.

The Snow Queen story always used to scare the crap out of me.

Have you seen any of the movie versions? Vik says there's an outstanding live-action one. I've only seen an animated one that looked like a moving storybook. It was GREAT!

By the way, did you like it, beside the fact it doesn't follow the original story?

It's not a bad movie and I can totally see why so many people love it.
I personally found Anna's story uninteresting and thought she took up waaaaaaaay too much screen time, but that's just an opinion.

Telling my own experience, I was really surprised because I liked it. I bet it would be a huge flop because of the potential clichés but on the contrary it was a good story.
I agree, I was interested to Elsa more too. I'm also a bit pissed that from the original tale Disney took just the setting, the bad ice element and the queen. While the rest was totally different. I mean, in effect the original tale had more obvious themes than this one (you know, kids' love, a heroine who wants to regain the love from her friend, a bad queen who is bad because she's bad) but at least you, dear Disney, don't tell people that that tale inspired you!
Anyway I would love if there was a spin off with the connection of this story and its tale, as you said :D
