Recently, ABC showed us how Frozen was made in its special Frozen: Making of a Classic. In this lively, informative hour, we learned how everyone’s favorite animation was made. With the help of stars like Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, and Idina Menzel, we learned more and more about the film.
Frozen took two and a half years to create! It always shocks me how long it takes to create an animated movie. And, the film almost didn’t get made. Frozen was thought of in 1932 by the Walt Disney, and now in 2014, it has finally come to life.
Kristen Bell admitted to be the abnormal princess character. Though some princesses are seemingly perfect, Anna was supposed to be a bit awkward and quirky.
“I really wanted Anna to be just different,” said Bell.

Idina Menzel added a ton like her amazing voice, but she also suggested something crucial: singers have to use their diaphragm, so the animators added that motion into Elsa’s character.
Then, there’s Josh Gad, who played the cuddly snowman named Olaf. He was a inspiration as he used expressions and motions And, honestly, who didn’t love Olaf as he or she watched the movie?
As with many animated movies, the setting was based on a real place. During the special, we saw the actual Norwegian town that Frozen was based on. The architecture and nature was extremely realistic compared to the real thing.
The real question that kept coming up during the production was “Who is Elsa?” First, she was a villain, but soon, she became a good girl with terrifying powers. That’s where “Let It Go” came from actually. Funny how these things work out.
The viral videos of Frozen songs and moments have taken over the Internet. One can never have too many little girls and their daddies singing “Love Is An Open Door.”
“I know what it’s like for lightening to strike and to be a part of that. I’m just really grateful,” Menzel said regarding Frozen’s surprising success.
With Frozen On Ice and a Frozen short on the horizon, it doesn’t seem that the trend is cooling down at all. As always, we’ll just have to see what happens. What’s your favorite part of the film? Let me know, and happy kommenting :)
