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.
During preproduction on the film, the film's production, art, lighting, and design leads teams went to Wyoming, Quebec, 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), 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 (1962) scope and scale to this," he finished.
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?
When Elsa lets her hair down during "Let It Go", her braid passes through her left shoulder. The intention is that it should look as though it has swung there under its own weight, but when viewed frame -by-frame it jumps through too quickly and there is too much of it already there when she turns and runs her hand beneath it for that to be the case.
For the Disney credits, "Caffeination" is one of the job titles.
Also released in 3D.
