Disney is making a movie about a powerful girl, a princess! It is as shocking as the Pixar-Brave animation, yet it found its way to the top movie lists in the year 2013. The 3D animation tells of Elsa, the queen of Arendelle and her sister princess Ana. Elsa keeps herself away from her surrounding and shut people out. Even her sister does not know the reason behind this isolation. Everything goes in the same direction till the day of coronation when Elsa is becoming legally a queen. We realize that she has super powers that enables her to turn everything sh touches into gold and that what she did by mistake to Arendelle before she escapes for a long period. Sisterhood is the major theme of the movie and every act of pure love that could turn ice to steam. As for the movie’s animation, it is where secrets lie and now we will gradually discover.
The simple three-letter word ice cost animators days of hard mental work. It turned out that creating 3D animated and still ice-shaped location and structure would require the creation of a new software called Matterhorn to be able to give you all the snow effects displayed especially in Elsa’s palace.
Santino Fontana, the actor playing Hans has been sharing in different movies that needed a vocal. In Frozen, his talent got very clear and apparent in the duos he had with Ana at the very beginning of the anime.
Rapunzel and Flynn appear in Frozen! In the very first shot after Ana starts singing in the day of coronation before the gates got opened, we can see both Rapunzel and Flynn just before Ana.
Relating themselves to Pixar, Disney has hardly made a successful anime that was not a Pixar partnership. As for Frozen, it is different. This 3D anime is the first succeed and win awards away from Pixar.
