Frozen is a 2013 American 3D computer-animated musical fantasy film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures.Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale "The Snow Queen", the film tells the story of a fearless princess who sets off on a journey alongside a rugged iceman, his loyal pet reindeer, and a naïve snowman to find her estranged sister, whose icy powers have inadvertently trapped the kingdom in eternal winter.
based on my research, Elsa, one of the main character and the older sister of anna, both princesses possesses cryokinetic magic. ables her(elsa) to freeze things. an incident had diverged their relationship causing them to be separated from each other. it is because elsa accidentally damaged anna's heart cause of her magic and planted a curse at it. only the trolls have the wility to heal such curse, and they erased the incident at elsa's memory. many years have past untill the coronation of elsa as the new queen of her kingdom, it is the time that she must face the crowd and also almost like her first of seeing other people, because she is forbidden to socialize outside and forced to shut everyone in her life including those closest to her. at the ball. anna ask for her blessing to marry a prince she just met, but elsa doesn't permit her sister and forced to reveal her powers to the citizens making the whole kingdom to freeze(winter). the people began to be scared of her and treat her as a threat. so elsa left the kingdom and and gone to the woods. scared of herself that she might hurt more. anna, the loving sister followed her and tried to convince elsa to get back to the kingdom.
The beauty of this scene is that it celebrates what makes us different. This scene is incredibly freeing, and what if that was true for you as well. What if the very thing you’ve been ashamed of, such as your sensitivity, your distractibility, your looks, your financial status was actually your secret superpower? What if this message of hope and strength was really your message? How would that look?Learning to accept herself actually allowed Elsa to realize what her true values were: her family. And it was the sisters’ love and brave actions that ultimately broke the curse and melted not only the snow at Arendelle, but also Anna’s frozen heart.
“Love’s a force that’s powerful and strange
People make bad choices if they’re mad, or scared, or stressed
But throw a little love their way, and you’ll bring out their best,
True love brings out the best.”
