Queen Elsa of Arendelle, also known as the The Snow Queen, is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Animation Studios‘ 53rd animated film Frozen (2013). She is voiced primarily by Broadway actress and singer Idina Menzel. At the beginning of the film, she is voiced by Eva Bella as a young child and by Spencer Lacey Ganus as a teenager.
Created by director Chris Buck, Elsa is loosely based on the title character of The Snow Queen, a Danish fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen. In the Disney film adaption, she is introduced as the princess of the fictional Scandinavian kingdom of Arendelle, heiress presumptive to the throne, and the elder sister of Princess Anna (Kristen Bell). Elsa is scripted as having been born with the magical ability to create and manipulate ice and snow. She inadvertently sends Arendelle into an eternal winter on the evening of her coronation. Throughout the film, she struggles first with controlling and concealing her abilities and then with liberating herself from her fears of unintentionally harming others, particularly her younger sister.
The Snow Queen character, neutral in the original fairytale and villain in numerous adaptations of the character, proved difficult to adapt to film due to her transparent depiction. Several film executives, including Walt Disney, attempted to build on the character, and a number of scheduled film adaptions were shelved when they could not work out the character. Buck and his co-director,Jennifer Lee, were ultimately able to solve the dilemma by depicting Elsa and Anna as sisters. This led to Elsa being gradually rewritten as a sympathetic, misunderstood character.
Elsa has enjoyed a largely positive reception from reviewers, who praised her complex characterization and vulnerability. Menzel was also widely praised for her vocal performance of Elsa, especially that of her performance of the song “Let It Go“, with critics frequently calling her a “powerhouse”. There are unconfirmed reports that Elsa will be inducted into the Disney Princess line-up in 2014 along with Anna, becoming the 13th official member.
Elsa is a misunderstood women that runs away because of her uncontrollable powers. As a child, she was locked up and didn’t experience much love. At the end of the movie, though, she finally understands that love is stronger than fear will ever be.
Olaf is a cute, funny snowman that joins Anna, Kristoff, and Sven on their journey to the North Mountain. He was the one that helped Anna discover what true love really was.
