The story continues in the new ''Anna & Elsa'' 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 will debut 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 - Live at the Hyperion'', itself replacing ''[[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular]]''.

** [[ThePowerOfLove Only an act of true love can thaw a frozen heart]]. [[spoiler:And it doesn't have to be ''romantic'' love, nor does it state ''who'' has to do said act -- or even which heart needs thawing.

His original intent was to escape from the Southern Isles forever and prove his worth to them, but ironically, the great (and unscrupulous) lengths he went to appeal them had disastrous results, and ultimately transformed him into the man he is today.]]

** A lot of ads for the movie make [[spoiler:Hans out to be a supporting character of the movie by having him pictured along with Anna, Elsa, and Kristoff. Granted he was technically a supporting character at the beginning of the film, but this is ultimately revealed to be an act - and by the end, he has revealed himself as the films most villainous character]].

** Another red herring (within a red herring) is that "[[ThePowerOfLove only an act of true love can thaw a frozen heart]]." Hans is Anna's true love, right? So all she needs is [[TrueLovesKiss a kiss from him]] and she'll be saved. [[spoiler:[[WrongGenreSavvy Or so you would think]]. Hans never loved Anna in the first place, and is only using her status as Princess to get into the Arendelle royal family. Anna realizes that it's ''Kristoff'' who is her true love, so Anna tries to find him for his kiss. Unfortunately, her curse freezes her solid just as Hans is about to kill Elsa, which saves Elsa from Hans's sword. This counts as "an act of true love", thus reversing the curse. (As is usual for prophecy, everybody - including the WrongGenreSavvy audience - overlooks an equally valid interpretation of the statement.)]]

* ChurchOfSaintGenericus: The bishop at Elsa's coronation wears Arendelle's crocus on his mitre instead of a cross. Similarly, the orb used in the coronation is not topped with a cross but a crocus flower. So exactly which religion Arendelle follows (catholic, orthodox, Church of England-style state religion, etc.) is unclear.

** This trope applies to Prince Hans of the Southern Isles to extremes (and serves as his FatalFlaw), as his father is an extremely stone-cold and unfeeling man who views [[TheUnfavorite his youngest son]] with outright contempt, and allows Hans's brothers to bully him in order to gain his approval at the expense of Hans, believing that it's all "good politics". His older brothers (sans one) regularly bully and humiliate him during political meetings; in fact, three of them even ''pretended'' he didn't exist for ''two years''. And though his mother loves him, she does little to stop his abuse at the hands of his older brothers. Despite this, Hans's driving obsession has always been to win the respect and love of his neglectful parents and abusive brothers.

* ShipSinking: The sheer brutality of the [[EvilAllAlong main plot twist]] in ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' did this to the [[spoiler:Hans/Anna]] ship, and by extension, every other [[spoiler:Hans]]-related ship. Essentially, [[spoiler:Hans reveals that [[ItsAllAboutMe he only ever cared about getting the throne]], and Anna was the easier sister to seduce. He then explains how now that she's dying, all he needs to do is kill Elsa to become a VillainWithGoodPublicity.]] Said EvilGloating is done with a [[SmugSnake smug, satisfied smile]]. WordOfGod confirms that the character in question is and always was [[TheSociopath a sociopath]].



* VillainWithGoodPublicity: [[spoiler:Hans, ''even towards the viewer''. No-one knows about his usurpation plan and instead view him as TheWisePrince]].

** [[spoiler:Hans' main flaw is his hypocrisy. He vowed not to be like his brothers and willingly use violence as the chief means to an end (as his father is known to be an extremely ruthless, cold and tyrannical dictator who uses brute force to control his subjects). Yet, near the end of the book, Hans is determined to uphold his family's legacy and kill Elsa and Anna for his own ends.]]

Added DiffLines:

* FatalFlaw:
** Queen Elsa's main flaw is fear of her own powers. This flaw is justified because she almost killed her sister Anna when they were playing.
** Anna's major flaw is her impulsive naivete. It's best shown in how she rushes up the mountain Elsa's run off to with no protection from the cold, no plan to bring her back beyond talking her down somehow, and no idea she'd accomplish that. [[spoiler:To say nothing of her falling head-over-heels with Prince Hans, who turned out to be TheSociopath looking to gain the throne by any means necessary.]]
