Well, whaddayaknow, I was kinda reluctant to see Frozen at first, because, you know, the whole disney princess thing, but it actually turned out to be one of my favorite Disney movies ever, and this drawing really does it justice! Fantastic work!
I really liked this movie so so good...then again I didn't read and only seen the tv trailers for it so I was surprised by some of the things in the movie(even though I am getting tired of the 3dish feel of these new movies)...and Elsa's song is the best "new" Disney songs I have heard lately (I still love the old disney songs bestest). Giving you a fave and a good review of the movie. ^-^

sadly, i'm kind of putting off faving anything FROZEN related until I see it. (its crazy how many products they released before the actual movie came out. which is today) ill go see it sometime and if its as good as all this stuff shows, dang, i gota lota faving/buying to do o.o
Wow, you actually made her look interesting instead of the lazy design Disney gave her. She actually looks like an imposing queen of winter now
Personally I'm not going to see this movie because the character designs for Anna and Elsa are basically palette-swapped versions of Rapunzel with different hair and because they completely ruined the plot of the original fairytale (we could have had an epic adventure with an entirely female cast and badass witches and female bandits!). Plus, one of the creators of the movie tried to explain away Anna and Elsa's same-face syndrome with some BS about how women are too hard to draw and make them look different, so I'm going to stay away from this misogynistic mess of a movie.
However, you are right, there is a sexism problem at Disney. For whatever reason, they don't trust women to sell movies, despite the fact that their biggest fans and largest audience are generally women and that blockbusters like the Hunger Games show that audiences are just as willing to watch women kick ass as they are to watch men kick ass. It's why they refuse to use the word "princess" in their American movie titles and why they added larger roles for men and reduced or omitted t
(Sorry I accidentally hit submit too soon, also please read these replies backwards, ie read the third one down first) omitted roles for women. And yes this sucks and is total bullshit, but boycotting the movies they do make with female characters, especially ones with empowering messages like Frozen, isn't going to do anything but make Disney trust females even less and make the problem worse. Fortunately Frozen is doing amazingly well at the box office, so I'm excited to see more movies from them like Frozen and Tangled in the future. The next one Moana, which takes place in Polynesia, is looking pretty awesome.
Thank you for the compliment to my art, I really appreciate it especially considering that you don't care about the source material. However I love this movie and feel the need to try and defend it. SPOILERS FOR PEOPLE THAT HAVEN'T SEEN FROZEN. Looking at your other comments I'm kind of wondering if we even saw the same movie. Anna the most boring princess? First off, she's got fierce competition for that title, it's hard to be blander than Cinderella or Aurora. But in all seriousness, I love Anna for all her dorkiness. She's more of a normal flawed teenage girl than a well-mannered princess ("don't know if I'm elated or gassy, but I'm somewhere in that zone"= best line in a princess I WANT song ever!). And yeah there was romance, but it takes a total backseat to the relationship of the sisters. In the end it's this relationship and not love from Christophe or Hans that saves Anna and teaches Elsa to thaw the ice. And better yet, in the end Anna doesn't wait for some one to save her but acts on her own and saves herself. For this I think Frozen might actually be one of, if not the most empowering movies from Disney for girls. And yeah, Frozen does lack diversity, but I really don't understand why it's being hated for this when this is pretty universal problem. The Avengers is all white and reached a much larger audience, yet people don't riled up over that. This seems especially odd since Disney actually has a pretty good track record for this (Mulan, princess and the frog, Lilo and Stitch, the upcoming Moana, etc).
Um...do you even know what sexism means? Erasing a diverse female cast and replacing it with generic white male characters is sexism, The male characters are the source of the sexism. Kristoff constantly belittles Anna (who, by the way, is the blandest and most boring character I've ever seen from Disney), and even the relationship between the sisters is shoved aside in favor of Anna's ~love life~ which, by the way, everyone seems to know better than Anna, because everyone's telling Anna what she should be feeling (you can't marry him! You just met him!) Even the snowman, who has been alive for ONE DAY, knows Anna's feelings better than she does (Kristoff is in love with you and you should be with HIM!) And to be honest, I actually liked Anna and Hans. They had actual chemistry, whereas Kristoff didn't treat Anna right at all. Revealing Hans as the "bad guy" was probably the cheapest twist to come from Disney.
Also that damn snowman was annoying and contributed nothing to the movie.
