* Did Not Think This Through: Anna immediately falls in love with Prince Hans upon meeting him. Even though she has only known him for one day, Anna naively believes Hans is her true love. She doesnít take the time to get to know Hans for a period of days or weeks before considering marriage. She doesnít even take time to consider whether or not Hans is actually trustworthy. After waltzing with Anna during the coronation ball and playing around the castle with her, Hans proposes to Anna, who immediately accepts. Then Anna asks her sister, Queen Elsa for her blessing, but Elsa is so shocked that she refuses to let Anna get married. Eventually, after returning from her journey to find Elsa and bring her back to Arendelle, Anna reunites with Hans, who reveals his evil nature. She then realizes she was wrong about Hans.

* AnachronismStew: WordOfGod is the movie takes place around the 1840s, but RuleOfCool and RuleOfFunny fudges things a lot.

to:

* AnachronismStew: WordOfGod is that the main events of the movie takes supposedly take place around the 1840s, in July 1839, but RuleOfCool and RuleOfFunny fudges things a lot.



** The word 'OK', which was invented in 1839, is used frequently throughout the film, especially by Anna. It works for post-coronation day events in the film, but Anna says 'OK, bye' to Elsa in "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?", which was before the word 'OK' was around.

* DarkerAndEdgier: A major contender for this among Disney films, despite having a body count of only two minor characters (Anna and Elsa's parents), and the villains punished justly without death. The film features childhood trauma, dead parents, murderous noblemen, a comic relief character that spends the movie dreaming about the thing that will kill him, and the entire cast nearly dying [[spoiler:in a massive snowstorm near the end]].

** [[AllThereInTheManual In the script]], there are minor characters called [[Literature/TheSnowQueen Gerda and Kai]]. Gerda is a portly servant, while Kai is the servant who introduces the sisters at the coronation ball.

* NotAllowedToGrowOld: Elsa's and Anna's parents look to be in their early to mid-twenties in the prologue. At first it's understandable, given that the girls are about 8 and 5 at the time. However, they don't age a day by the time of their death, when Elsa is 18 and Anna is 15. OlderThanTheyLook may be in effect by then, but at the time of her death, Idun looks like the animation model used for Elsa at the coronation with brown hair and a different dress, which looks egregious when an 18-year-old Elsa is standing right in front of her.

** A lot of the film's conflict (especially regarding the glove and major argument between the two sisters) might have been avoided if Elsa, their father Agdar, or mother Idun, had just told Anna about Elsa's powers when they felt she was old enough.

** "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?", "For the First Time In Forever", and "[[AwardBaitSong Let it Go]]" are each an IWantSong and as far from the conventional example of one as you can get -- in the first, Anna just wants to have Elsa back in her life; in the second, we see Anna's naivete while Elsa's part is about her dread for the upcoming coronation; in the third, it's more a revelation of Elsa's that she's finally free to be herself -- regardless of the consequences for her kingdom and sister -- now that she imagines that she has nothing left to lose.

** In "For The First Time In Forever", Anna wonders if that night she'll ''meet the one'', thinking he'd be "a beautiful stranger, tall and fair". While she initially thinks it's Hans, ''Kristoff'' is the "tall and fair" one (being a husky blond), and she ''does'' meet him that night.

* FreudianExcuse: "Throw a little love their way, and you'll bring out their best." In other words, if someone's best hasn't been brought out, it's because love was never "thrown their way." For example:
** [[spoiler:Hans's villainy stems from growing up without being loved]].
** [[spoiler:Kristoff's inital misanthropy may have resulted from growing up among ice miners who treated him badly (i.e. ignoring him and leaving him behind). The trolls treated Kristoff better, hence why he's warmer to them and not with humans.]]

** When Pabbie alters Anna's memories so that she won't remember Elsa's magic and puts them back in her head, look closely and you can see Anna's tired expression change to a smile.

A product of extended DevelopmentHell that can be traced all the way back to Creator/WaltDisney ''himself.'' It is only the second time they tapped Creator/HansChristianAndersen for a full-length feature (not counting shorts and sequences used for ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}''), following up ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''.

''Frozen'' turned out to be an enormous commercial success, to the surprise of many, including Disney themselves. Box office sales worldwide totaled over a billion dollars, and it ranks on Wiki/TheOtherWiki as one of the top-grossing animated films of all time. Four years later, ''Frozen'' continues to be a merchandise powerhouse. A cinematic sequel, ''Frozen 2,'' is currently in the works.

''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''.



A young adult novelization called ''Literature/AFrozenHeart'' was released in October 2015, told from the alternating perspectives of Anna and Hans, showing two different perspectives on having 12 brothers and the attitudes of a sociopath's inability to love and his own large family. He is shown thinking of other people as objects and tools throughout and does not consider himself at fault for his mistakes. While the novel is not confirmed canon, it has been well-received by many fans.

The story continues in the new ''Literature/AnnaAndElsa'' series of children's chapter books; the first two have been released in January 2015. The same year, a theatrical short titled ''Disney/FrozenFever'' was released alongside ''Film/{{Cinderella|2015}}'', telling a story of Anna's friends throwing her a birthday party; the short features the original cast and crew and a new original song. The fourth season of the ABC series ''Series/OnceUponATime'' also features a continuation of the story, and additional backstory linking it to the original ''Snow Queen'' story, though this is all non-canon with the film. A holiday special was released in the 2017 holiday season titled ''Disney/OlafsFrozenAdventure'' alongside ''WesternAnimation/{{Coco}}''. A stage musical is slated to appear on Broadway in 2018. A feature-length sequel was also announced in March 2015 and will be released on November 27, 2019. A small singalong show was added to [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disney California Adventure]] in 2015, and was replaced by a full stage version, ''Frozen Ė Live at the Hyperion'', itself replacing ''[[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular]]''.
