How “Let It Go” Altered Anna and Elsa’s Relationship in “Frozen”

Frozen Let It Go Golden Globe

According to an interview with the New York Times, the story of “Frozen” wasn’t always about Anna and Elsa’s relationship. In fact, they weren’t even supposed to be sisters.

Originally, Anna was supposed to be the perfect princess rather than the quirky awkward girl we’ve grown to love.

When the story began developing, it was suggested in a meeting at the Walt Disney Animation Studios that Anna and Elsa be related and things started falling into place.

On top of that, it wasn’t until the song “Let It Go” was completed where things really began to take shape. The song led to a complete change of the screen play and drove home the focus of Anna and Elsa’s relationship as sisters making the movie what it is today.

With the popularity of “Frozen” in theaters right now, it should be no surprise that the 17″ limited edition Anna and Elsa dolls sold out within the first 24 hours.

Pre-orders began for these dolls last Friday, January 10th, in Disney Stores and on the Disney Store website.

These gorgeous 17″ dolls leave out no detail. The molds capture Anna and Elsa’s features perfectly and the embroidered clothing is beautifully crafted with the designs matching Anna’s outfit and Elsa’s coronation dress to a T.

These dolls are limited to 5000 units and retail for $99.95 each. They will officially be released on March 18th along with the DVD and Blu Ray version of “Frozen”.

What “Frozen’s” Anna and Elsa Could Have Looked Like

With a recent update to the “Disney Animated” app for the Apple iPad, some artwork and behind-the-scenes facts from “Frozen” were added to the cornucopia of Disney Animation information that was available at launch.

One of the more interesting additions highlights some potential character designs for “Frozen’s” leading ladies.

Below you will see a couple of screenshots that show what Anna and Elsa could have looked like had the early alternate designs passed.
