Known Trivia

  • As pointed out in a message board written by an IMDb user regarding the film, Anna, Hans, and Kristof are all named after Hans Christian Andersen: Prince Hans as in Hans, (Krist)of as in (Christ)ian, and (An)na as in (An)dersen. 8 of 8 found this interesting Interesting? YesNo |
  • Prince Hans is named after Hans Christian Andersen, a famed and influential Danish fairy tale poet and author of “The Red Shoes”, “The Emperor’s New Clothes”, “The Ugly Duckling”, “The Steadfast Tin Soldier”, “The Little Match Girl”, “The Little Mermaid”, and “The Snow Queen”; the last of which the movie is based on. Disney Animation also adapted various Andersen’s fairy tales into animated short or feature-length films: The Little Mermaid, The Little Matchgirl, “The Steadfast Tin Soldier” segment in Fantasia/2000, the “Ugly Duckling” plot element in Lilo & Stitch, and the title of The Emperor’s New Groove is derived from that of “The Emperor’s New Clothes”. 6 of 6 found this interesting Interesting? YesNo |
  • The original Danish fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, on which this film is based, is a personal favorite work of Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark Margrethe II. 4 of 4 found this interesting Interesting? YesNo |
  • A live reindeer was brought into the animating studio for animators to study its movements and mannerisms for the reindeer character, Sven. Co-director Jennifer Lee said it was the best moment during production for her. 3 of 3 found this interesting Interesting? YesNo |
  • Walt Disney Animation Studios attempted several times before to develop Hans Christian Andersen’s classic fairy tale “The Snow Queen” into a film in the 2000s but it never worked. They first tried it in 2002, and master animator Glen Keane infamously quit the project, then it was scrapped. “The Snow Queen” was resurfaced again in 2009 and John Lasseter recruited directors Kirk Wise and Gary Trousdale (Beauty and the Beast, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Atlantis: The Lost Empire) to helm the project. Producer Don Hahn and writer Linda Woolverton also signed on to the project, alongside Alan Menken and Glenn Slater who were commissioned to write the songs. In 2010, the film was put on hold, rather than be put back in development hell again, as Disney worked out a way on how to make the story work. 2 of 2 found this interesting Interesting? YesNo |
  • Elsa is the second Disney royal role for Idina Menzel. At the end of Enchanted, her character Nancy Tremaine went to Andalasia and married Prince Edward. 2 of 2 found this interesting Interesting? YesNo |
  • During preproduction on the film, the film’s production, art, lighting, and design leads teams went to Wyoming, Quebec, Canada, and Norway in order to study and gain an appreciation for the environment for the film, such as walking through snow (Wyoming), make observations of how light reflects and refracts on snow and ice (Quebec, Canada), and to gain an inspirational natural look on ice, mountains, water, and other elements needed for the story (Norway). “We had a very short time schedule for this film, so our main focus was really to get the story right but we knew that John Lasseter is keen on truth in the material and creating a believable world, and again that doesn’t mean it’s a realistic world – but a believable one. It was important to see the scope and scale of Norway, and important for our animators to know what it’s like,” Peter Del Vecho, the film’s producer, said. “There is a real feeling of Lawrence of Arabia scope and scale to this,” he finished. 3 of 4 found this interesting Interesting? YesNo |
  • Kristen Bell stated that with Frozen, she has fulfilled a lifelong dream of voicing an animated character ever since she saw The Little Mermaid and Aladdin as a kid. When she was around that same age, she recorded a voice box where she sang a couple of songs from The Little Mermaid, including “Part of Your World”. Her Little Mermaid vocal tracks were part of the reason why she got the part of Anna, as director Jennifer Lee said to her that if she hadn’t recorded her own vocal tracks from Mermaid, it would’ve been very difficult to the find the right one to play Anna. 3 of 4 found this interesting Interesting? YesNo |
  • Frozen joins with other Disney animated feature films that have been filmed in the ultra widescreen film format: Lady and the Tramp, Sleeping Beauty, The Black Cauldron, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Brother Bear, and Wreck-It Ralph. 1 of 1 found this interesting Interesting? YesNo |
  • On December 22, 2011, Disney announced that “The Snow Queen” had been put back into development, now entitled Frozen, with a different crew, and was scheduled for the 2013 holiday season release. It was, however, uncertain whether or not the project was still going to be in hand drawn animation or switch to computer animation. Twenty days later, on January 11, 2012, it was announced that the film was now going to be computer animated. 1 of 1 found this interesting Interesting? YesNo |

Plot: Fearless optimist Anna teams up with Kristoff in an epic journey, encountering Everest-like conditions, and a hilarious snowman named Olaf in a race to find Anna's sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom in eternal winter. Full summary » |  »

Story: Anna, a fearless optimist, sets off on an epic journey – teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven – to find her sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom. From the outside Anna’s sister, Elsa looks poised, regal and reserved, but in reality, she lives in fear as she wrestles with a mighty secret-she was born with the power to create ice and snow. It’s a beautiful ability, but also extremely dangerous. Haunted by the moment her magic nearly killed her younger sister Anna, Elsa has isolated herself, spending every waking minute trying to suppress her growing powers. Her mounting emotions trigger the magic, accidentally setting off an eternal winter that she can’t stop. She fears she’s becoming a monster and that no one, not even her sister, can help her.
