How Is 'Frozen' Different From 'The Snow Queen' By Hans Christian Andersen? They're An Icy World Apart
Guys — I have a confession. I didn't really like Disney's Frozen, the inescapable movie based on "The Snow Queen" by Hans Christian Andersen. As a devout Disney follower, I applaud the fact that the film gave us a sister relationship, rather than a romantic relationship, at the forefront of the story. But that does not excuse Frozen's gaping plot holes and the not-that-catchy songs (not counting "Let It Go" of course). That's not to take away from the excellent performances of Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, who played Anna and Elsa, respectively.
As a huge fan of original fairytales (despite their super creepiness), it would have been interesting if Disney had stuck a bit closer to the source material. So what are the similarities and differences between Disney and the Danish writer's tale? Let's a take a closer look...
