The Original Plot For Disney’s Frozen Has Been Revealed And It’s Dark AF
“Anna and Elsa weren’t even sisters.”
But it was almost completely different, and had the film makers gone with the original storyline, we doubt it would have become the success it is today.
The film’s producer, Peter Del Vecho, revealed to Entertainment Weekly that Frozen’s ending was completely dictated by the construction of Elsa’s character.
“When we started off, Anna and Elsa were not sisters. They weren’t even royal,” he said.
“Elsa was a villain, and was pure evil. She’s a scorned woman; she was stood up at the altar on her wedding day and froze her own heart so she would never love again.”
That version of the story involved Elsa creating an army of Snow Monsters to attack the Kingdom of Arendelle, where an innocent, unrelated Anna lived. The attack on Arendelle caused an avalanche, putting everyone’s lives in jeopardy, including evil Elsa’s.
So Anna convinces Elsa to use her wicked powers for good, and encourages her to save everybody. This good deed melts Elsa’s frozen heart, allowing her to love again.
“The problem was that we had no emotional connection to Elsa — we didn’t care about her because she had spent the whole movie being the villain. We weren’t drawn in. The characters weren’t relatable.”
And so Elsa and Anna were made sisters, and Frozen was transformed into the movie we all know and love today. What a great decision that was!
