At that stage, the first major breakthrough was the decision to rewrite the film's protagonistAnna who was based on the Gerda character from The Snow Queenas the younger sibling of Elsa, thereby effectively establishing a family dynamic between the characters. If you do[,] it will be great. If you don't, it will suck". In the original, Elsa had been evil from the start, kidnapping Anna from her own wedding to intentionally freeze her heart and later descending upon the town with an army of snowmen.
So that was when we really found the movie and who these characters were". Because the minute it is [understood,] it deflated. No more than that.
No less than that. At the story meeting where Ripa pitched his take on the story, Lasseter said, "I've never seen anything like that before", followed by a standing ovation. But that was close. In hindsight, piece of cake, but during, it was a big struggle. Their posture was too good and they were too well-spoken, and I feel like I really made this girl much more relatable and weirder and scrappier and more excitable and awkward. I'm really proud of that.
It has everything, but it's essentially about sisterhood. It's such a great relationship to have in movies, especially for young kids. Menzel had formerly auditioned for Tangled, but did not get the part. However, Tangled's casting director, Jamie Sparer Roberts, preserved a recording of Menzel's performance on her iPhone, and on the basis of that, asked her to audition along with Bell for Frozen. It was important to see the scope and scale of Norway, and important for our animators to know what it's like," Del Vecho said.
That problem was not adequately solved until November: The animators themselves may work on multiple characters but it's always under one lead. I think it was different on Tangled, for example, but we chose to do it this way as we wanted one person to fully understand and develop their own character and then be able to impart that to the crew.
Hyrum Osmond, the supervising animator on Olaf, is quiet but he has a funny, wacky personality so we knew he'd bring a lot of comedy to it; Anna's animator, Becky Bresee, it's her first time leading a character and we wanted her to lead Anna. This helped her discover elements that made the scene feel real and believable. According to him, it lent a hyper-reality to the film: From a design perspective, since I was stressing the horizontal and vertical aspects, and what the fjords provide, it was perfect.
We encased the sibling story in scale. It was also Giaimo's idea that Frozen should be filmed in the CinemaScope widescreen process, which was approved by Lasseter. Giaimo also wanted to ensure that Norway's fjords, architecture and rosemaling folk art, were critical factors in designing the environment of Arendelle. In a feeding frenzy on a par with Buzz Lightyear figures in and Cabbage Patch Kids in the 80s, all but the most unlovable items of merchandise sold out: In the Disney Store, parents have to enter a lottery just for the chance to buy the most desirable item, an Elsa costume.
Margita Thompson from Disney Consumer Products says in her defence: Variety called it "longer on striking visuals than on truly engaging or memorable characters". The Onion AV Club overdosed on faint praise: But in its simple pleasures, it's every bit as enjoyable as Winnie The Pooh.
Nor are there any memorable tunes. Frozen, at first glance, looks like more of the same. You get two big-eyed, wasp-waisted princesses, a square-jawed love interest and a wisecracking sidekick.

But the other one is Elsa Idina Menzeland she's the movie's X-factor. To complain that there isn't a clear-cut villain is to miss the innovation that makes Frozen so fresh and resonant. The villains aren't people but emotions: A version of The Snow Queen had been trapped in development hell for decades. As far back as the s, Disney had tried and failed to update Hans Christian Andersen's dark fable.
In the late 90s, off the back of the so-called Disney Renaissance the creative rebirth running from The Little Mermaid to Tarzanthe company attempted it again and shelved it again. InChris Buck, a veteran animator and director of Tarzan, pitched it to John Lasseter, chief creative officer of Disney Animation, as a traditional hand-drawn animation called Anna and the Snow Queen, with Elsa as a villain trying to thwart Anna's love for Prince Hans.

That stalled, too, but bounced back as Frozen with Jennifer Lee who wrote Wreck-It Ralph as screenwriter and co-director, and some crucial twists. The most successful animations have at their core a relationship threatened by a child growing up, whether it's the neurotic helicopter parent and rebellious son in Finding Nemo, or the outgrown toys in Toy Story 3. Frozen has the faultline between sisters.

Her version flopped, not just because the arrangement and delivery hobbled the song but because fans didn't want Lovato to sing it: In plot terms, we know that Elsa is deluded when she sings Let It Go.

But the song is so good at conveying the rush of reckless self-empowerment that it suspends our knowledge of the dire consequences for a few minutes.
