The night I was going to see Frozen, my cat had to be put down, and I chose to go on and see the movie instead of being there in her last moments. I know it’s my own fault, but I really regret that decision now. Frozen is kind of ruined for me because I can’t help but think of my kitty when I watch it, and wish I’d chosen differently.
I really hate that people are so negative about Frozen just because it’s popular. Frozen is a really special film for me. It came out at a time when my relationship with my older sister was strained. She was like Elsa. She was scared and didn’t know how to deal with me. I was like Anna. I was lively and I wanted to know her but she shut me out. I thought she hated me. Frozen gave us common ground and brought us together in the most perfect way, for that it will always hold a place in my heart.
My sister once described Frozen as “our whole life story” with me being the one who was very private and shut everyone out (Elsa) and her being the optimistic sister (Anna). And while I don’t particularly mind being compared to Elsa, I’m a little hurt that my sister remembers our childhood in that way. The only reason I felt the need to shut everyone out back then was because of my anxiety and depression. I wish she understood that it wasn’t exactly my fault.
No hate towards Elsa, but sometimes when I see frozen merchandise, fan art or anything Frozen that has Anna and Elsa. I feel a little sad for Anna always seeing her in Elsa’s shadow. I know that’s a weird thing to feel sad over. Maybe it’s because I can relate that I feel sad.
When Frozen came out I saw it with my mom and my niece who was a toddler at the time and for weeks afterwards my niece sang Let it Go all the time. I thought it was so cute I downloaded the musical scenes onto a dvd for her to watch and every time she watched the Let it Go scene she would copy Elsa. 5 years later and I still think about it whenever I listen to Let it Go
Frozen it’s such a special movie to me and I miss the pre-release fandom that use to exist. It was such a fun time, getting excited for the smallest things being released about it. I wish more people could have experienced that part of the fandom.
I used to hate Elsa, but now, I think I let the fandom dictate my opinion on her. Now, that the Frozen fandom has calmed down a bit, I don’t hate Elsa, in fact, I actually like. She’s not my favorite, and between the Frozen sisters, I prefer Anna, but I realize that I hated the fandom’s portrayal of her more than anything.
When I was 11, I used to act out scenes from the movie alone in my room, and that was honestly what made me realize I wanted to pursue musical theatre (fitting now, since it’s on Broadway!). Frozen is a huge part of me. Yes, it may be overrated, but I really love it, and I’ve learned not to care what people say about it.
