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.
Idina Menzel called Frozen (2013) "a bit of a feminist movie for Disney." "I'm really proud of that," Menzel tells Zap2it. "It has everything, but it's essentially about sisterhood. I think that these two women are competitive with one another, but always trying to protect each other - sisters are just so complicated. It's such a great relationship to have in movies, especially for young kids." Kristen Bell said, similarly, "I'm really excited to show it to people. I became a part of the kind of movie I wanted to see as a kid. I always loved Disney animation, but there was something about the females that was unattainable to me. Their posture was too good and they were too well-spoken, and I feel like I really made this girl [Princess Anna] much more relatable [sic] and weirder and scrappier and more excitable and awkward. I'm really proud of that." Director Jennifer Lee shared the same feeling in a March 21, 2014 interview with CBS This Morning (1992), wherein she noted that although they're princesses, Anna and Elsa are more modern than the titular character in Cinderella (1950): "These girls are very different from Cinderella. Their wants and goals and dreams are much more, I think, contemporary. And I think you'll keep seeing that shift."
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?
In the shot where Anna and Kristoff gets a first glimpse of Elsa's castle, the camera starts from behind an exposed rock protrusion, but in the shot of the mountain before the song "Let it Go" starts there was none.
For the Disney credits, "Caffeination" is one of the job titles.
A sing-along version of the film with on-screen lyrics and a bouncing snowflake, was released in selected theaters on January 31, 2014.
