The complexity of character’s emotions in this movie is incredible.
Because of Anna’s past and having doors in her face throughout her childhood she’s developed a fear of them not opening.
Younger kids who watch Frozen now will probably completely overlook Anna’s hesitation. They’ll think of it as a funny line that Olaf said about her not being able to knock. But years from now when they re-watch this beautiful film they’ll notice just how sad it is. As they grow older and go through the same type of heartache Anna is experiencing; that same hesitation, they’ll understand just what this poor girl is going through.
They’ll relate to Frozen in a way that much more deep than just “that movie I watched as a kid” they’ll grow up learning new life lessons each time they watch it. Just like me, and many other Disnerds have with the films we used to watch as kids. I can’t wait til the younger generation starts picking up on just how amazing it is that they have Frozen to grow up with.
SOMEONE SAID IT. I noticed that too, when I first saw this clip I was looking at Anna & my heart was breaking
Has anyone else noticed that when Rapunzel and Flynn are drowning, Flynn moves Rapunzels hair from her face. And when Mother Gothel stabs Flynn and he’s dying, he moves Rapunzels hair out of her face again. It’s as if he wants to see Rapunzels beautiful face as the last thing he sees before he dies..
Yeah, see, THIS is a trigger. Something that prompts a horrible flashback that makes someone go into a literal panic attack. It is NOT something that makes you slightly uncomfortable, so can we all just stop tossing that word around like it’s nothing.
thank you Wreck It Ralph
Reblogging for valuable commentary
Also, can we talk about how Felix dealt with it? He NEVER used that word again (only once in front of Ralph, never by her), there was never any talk about how she could get over it, and in their wedding they all made plans to help her with her paranoia by recognising her fears and showing she was safe by pointing guns at the window and having extra security.
A++++++ on dealing with mental issues magnificently, Wreck-It Ralph!
Also what you’re talking about is Visual Effects, not animators :)
So pissed that Elsa and Anna look exactly like Rapunzel. UGH
They really don’t, to me anyways. I think Elsa and Anna’s faces are a teensy bit more matured and sculpted than Rapunzel’s face; her’s is rounded and so are her eyes.
^^ THIS and aren’t Elsa & Anna and Rapunzel cousins though?
Although it’s just a theory at this point, yeah, I think they are.
Most Disney princesses have similar looks. I think the only reason tons of people are comparing Anna and Elsa to Rapunzel is because they’re the first two computer-animated non-Pixar princesses. Their facial features are similar to Ariel’s too, but I don’t see anyone complaining about that. Even then though, there are still subtle differences in each face, and I find it pretty damn easy to tell the difference between Anna and Elsa and Rapunzel. (Ideally, Disney would have a wider array of appearances for their princesses, but that doesn’t make Anna, Elsa, or Rapunzel any less compelling and likable as characters!)
