When the newly crowned Queen Elsa accidentally uses her power to turn things into ice to curse her home in infinite winter, her sister Anna teams up with a mountain man, his playful reindeer, and a snowman to change the weather condition.
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, but it was scrapped when master animator Glen Keane famously quit the project. "The Snow Queen" resurfaced again in 2009 and John Lasseter recruited directors Kirk Wise and Gary Trousdale (Beauty and the Beast (1991), The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996), Atlantis: The Lost Empire (2001)) 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 placed on hold, rather than being put back in "development hell" again, as Disney devised a way to make the story work.
Come on, Sven!
Young Anna: Elsa, psst! Elsa!
Young Anna: Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!
Young Elsa: Anna, go back to sleep!
Young Anna: I just can't! The sky's awake so I'm awake. So we have to play!
Young Elsa: Go play by yourself!
Young Anna: Do you want to build a snowman?
Gloves were able to hold back Elsa's magic, but it had no problem at all going through her shoes. However, it is possible that the effect of her gloves is merely psychological and that they don't actually stop her powers per se.
For the Disney credits, "Caffeination" is one of the job titles.
All video releases are presented in an unusual 2.24:1 aspect ratio which closely matches that of Technirama and 70mm film. This is because the film was created with 70 mm Todd-AO in this ratio.
