A Disney adventure inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen. It's significant because it finally tears up Disney’s reductive fairy tale principles about love, writes Dan Hunter.
How did Frozen become Disney’s biggest hit since The Lion King and help it steal Pixar’s crown as king of animation?
Loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen, and with more than a shade of Tangled 2.0, Frozen sees two sibling princesses at odds with one another, with Elsa in a self-imposed exile due to her uncontrollable icy magical powers and Anna struggling to save their medieval kingdom from tricksters and permafrost.
So far, so Disney. But, co-written and co-directed by Jennifer Lee, one of the talents behind Disney’s excellent Wreck-it Ralph, Frozen is significant because it finally tears up Disney’s reductive fairy tale principles about love.
By focussing on two sisters struggling to communicate instead of fetishizing marriage to a handsome prince, Frozen transcends being simply a hugely entertaining and well-crafted film, and becomes a tale that its target audience can actually relate to – and indeed gain something useful from.

A Disney adventure inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's 'The Snow Queen', Frozen features the voice talents of Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel.
Princess Elsa, heir to the throne of Arendelle, has special powers that enable her to make snow and ice, which proves to be both a wonderful and dangerous gift. Following an accident that put her younger sister Anna's life at risk, Elsa has been trying to keep her powers under control. When an incident at her coronation ceremony exposes her magic ability to the citizens of Arendelle, Elsa flees and cuts herself off from the rest of the world, but in her emotional state she sets off a spell that casts a perpetual winter over the kingdom. It falls to Anna, with the help of mountaineer Kristoff, his reindeer Sven and a snowman called Olaf, to journey through treacherous conditions in order to reunite with her sister and find a way to break the spell.
