Aside from the two princesses, the primary personalities in the film are Kristoff the mountain man, his reindeer Sven, Prince Hans of the Southern Isles and a goofy snowman named Olaf. Hans is basically in the regular Prince Charming mould, and it is Anna's amorous interest in him that prompts the use of Elsa's ice magic at her coronation. When Anna sets off to save Elsa, she encounters Kristoff and Sven, his reindeer.
She coaxes them to advise her in the mountain ranges and they journey together. Amorous feelings also grow between Anna and Olaf. She's a very popular girl. Last, and by no means least, is Olaf the snowman. Olaf was produced by Elsa using her magical powers during the course of her childhood and has the crucial role of "wacky sidekick" throughout the show. He's undoubtedly, at least in my opinion, one of the most amusing Disney characters for a long time - and he gets some wonderful quips plus a few outstanding visual japes.
The movie is set in the domain of Arendelle. The King and Queen have two little girls; Elsa and Princess Anna. Elsa is the successor to the crown and she has mysterious ice abilities. She can create frost, snow and ice with no more than the wave of a hand. That's a great deal of fun and Elsa and Anna make full use of Elsa's snow powers when they're playing - till Elsa unintentionally harms Anna with her magic that is. Following that incident, Elsa is essentially sealed off and forbidden to reveal her snow powers again.
Later on, when both princesses have become young adults, their mother and father die during a sea voyage and Princess Elsa is crowned as queen of Arendelle. Sadly, prompted by an emotive argument with Anna, Elsa unleashes her ice power once more, and on this occasion in front of her subjects. She panics and dashes out of the castle, accidentally plunging the kingdom of Arendelle into perpetual winter as she departs.
She takes sanctuary in an isolated ice castle, which she builds on the North Mountain working with her ice powers. Equipped with very little more than a positive frame of mind, Anna takes off to be rejoined with her older sister, save her from her self imposed isolation and, while she's at it, to see if they can't fix the inclement climate.
It has now been a year since the release of Frozen. However, at this time, there's absolutely no sign of any reduction in the demand for Frozen themed gifts. With Xmas rapidly looming, mother and fathers will be eyeing the retail stores very carefully to ensure that reserves of the required products do not get used up too rapidly. Following the initial launch of the movie, it was really very hard to source Frozen toys, dress up gear, action figures etc. There were a fair number of dissatisfied kids, and also aggravated mother and fathers around twelve months ago. However, Disney finally seems to have recognized just what a colossal hit it has and stocked up accordingly. Hopefully stocks will hold up well enough to ensure that everyone gets just what they want this year.
Despite having a sisterhood in place, the film still passed through a number of variations before it was finally premiered. In the earlier editions Princess Elsa was much nearer to the authentic Snow Queen than she ended up being in the ultimate release of the movie. Early versions saw her as a villain, which would undoubtedly have been much more in line with Andersen's original portrayal.
However, this was adjusted to show a more sensitive and vulnerable element to her character and, whilst it may not have been in complete accord with the root material, the end result would seem to validate this action. Aside from the modifications to Elsa's character, the relationship between both princesses, despite the differences in their dispositions, is a pivotal aspect of the plot.
The two protagonists, Elsa and her young sister Princess Anna grow up together in the kingdom of Arendelle. Elsa has magic ice powers; she can create ice, frost and snow just by waving her hands. That's a rather neat trick for any young girl and Elsa and her sister Anna play and make use of Elsa's snow magic to have some snow fun. Up until Elsa unintentionally harms Anna using her snow powers that is. Afterwards, Elsa is separated and instructed not to use her mystical powers. Later on, when both girls are teenagers, their parents perish at sea and Princess becomes Queen of Arendelle. Regrettably, triggered by an emotive disagreement with Princess Anna, she lets loose her snow powers once again - and this time in the public eye. Distraught, she flees the castle, inadvertently plunging her country into endless winter as she leaves. She finds sanctuary in a distant ice castle which she creates in the mountains using her snow magic. Anna sets out on a quest to be reunified with Princess Elsa; and she eventually achieves this assisted by some fellow travellers which she meets along the road. Unfortunately, Anna is once again wounded by Elsa's ice magic and needs to be saved by an unselfish act of "true love".
