This famous fairy tale was the original source material heavily edited in the end for Disney's Frozen animated feature movie. Which Treats of a Mirror and of the Splinters Now then, let us begin. When we are at the end of the story, we shall know more than we know now: but to begin. Once upon a time there was a wicked sprite, indeed he was the most mischievous of all sprites. One day he was in a very good humor, for he had made a mirror with the power of causing all that was good and beautiful when it was reflected therein, to look poor and mean; but that which was good-for-nothing and looked ugly was shown magnified and increased in ugliness. In this mirror the most beautiful landscapes looked like boiled spinach, and the best persons were turned into frights, or appeared to stand on their heads; their faces were so distorted that they were not to be recognised; and if anyone had a mole, you might be sure that it would be magnified and spread over both nose and mouth.
Find out why Elsa of 'Frozen' may be our fave Disney princess yet. Frozen is the biggest Disney animated smash in years, thanks in large part to one of its heroines, the lovely Snow Queen who started out as Princess Elsa. The film and its soundtrack are pretty massive and have worked in concert to reinvigorate a still-beloved storytelling brand. The hype shows no signs of dying down and is anchored by Princesses Anna and Elsa. Elsa is the big sis and has the show-stopping song "Let It Go" to her credit. That song helped propel this film and story to stratospheric levels.
It is a coming of age story, but it also deals with faith and science, good and evil, and some of its elements are loaded with allegorical meaning. The story type Andersen uses was already known to the Ancient Greeks and some of the characteristics of the Snow Queen herself can be traced back more than a thousand years ago, to the times of the heathen religion. She is called the sky god or the sky lady. But Loki managed to do it by tying one end of a cord around the beard of a goat and the other end to his testicles, drawing one another back and forth. In The Snow Queen , two ravens help Gerda during her journey; perhaps an unintentional reference to the pair of ravens that accompany the god Odin and travel throughout the world. In the Alps regions of Germany and Switzerland they still remember the winter goddess Perchta or Bertha. In other areas, there is a similar divinity called Holda or Holle or Huld or Hulda, perhaps even Huldra in connection with the Scandinavian creature , which is sometimes responsible for the falling of snow.
