* Why is Anna so eager to get engaged to a man she just met? It isn't just her [[ThinksLikeARomanceNovel romantic mindset]] or [[WideEyedIdealist idealism]] (though those certainly contribute). In "For the First Time in Forever," Anna imagines meeting the love of her life. Near the end of the song, she says "I know it all ends tomorrow, so it has to be today!" She assumed that Hans was her ''only'' chance at finding true love.

* The snowmen Elsa creates are actually parts of her will. Olaf represents her desire to see heat and the sun and not to bother with the cold. It also represents her bond with Anna. Marshmallow, on the other hand, represents her wanting to stay away from others and Arendelle when she flees. Note how he was created when Anna tried to bring her back home. Note, too, that Olaf is small, weak and ultimately ineffectual. Marshmallow is huge, and dangerous. Which side of Elsa's personality was more aggressively fostered...? Probably entirely coincidence, but it makes a nice bit of recursive sense. The scene where [[spoiler: Olaf tries to stop Marshmallow from getting to Kristoff and Anna's ice anchor gains an undercurrent of MoodWhiplash laden symbolism when you think how in For The First Time In Forever Reprise, the GenreSavvy Anna tries to convince Elsa that their bond is enough to stop the EternalWinter Elsa accidentally set off, Foreshadowing the end of the movie but all that actually happens is Anna is hit with a potentially fatal ice blast in the heart.]] It's been [[WordOfGod mentioned]] that Olaf is so innocent and constantly happy because he was created when Elsa was finally happy, during her IAmBecomingSong. Marshmallow gets created when she's angry at Anna for trying to get her to leave the castle, and lashes out. That's why he's so big and dangerous. That's why his reaction to having a snowball thrown at him is to [[DisproportionateRetribution try and kill Anna for it]], and his happy ending is to [[spoiler:rule over the empty castle, completely alone.]]

* [[spoiler:Han's]] attempt to kill Anna by simply locking her in a room may be seen as GenreBlindness but is GenreSavvy as as not one is allowed near there and the fact that he simply speeds up the process Elsa unintentionally began will ensure that his hands look clean while Elsa's look very dirty.

** Taken in context, all the disjointed nature of the song is brilliant given what type of song both singers are singing. Anna is singing a LoveSong. Hans is singing a VillainSong.

Added DiffLines:

** Or the Song isn't about Else, but someone else. Consider the Following:
*** Kristof is the only main character who hears the song, thus, it's meant for him.
*** There's the Duality at play. "Split the Ice Apart" (make one into two), two warnings about the "Frozen Heart", two warnings to "Watch Your Step, Let it go." In addition, Ice is always ascribed traits two at a time.
*** The only time things happen in three in the song, it is a failure, specifically the attempt by one, ten, or a hundred men to contain the magic of Ice. Three separate men will be given a chance to save Anna from Ice: Her father, Hans, and Kristof. In all cases, these do not work. Similarly, three times men will try and contain or control Elsa's powers without success: Her Father, The Duke, and Hans. The only thing that would work is the love of two sisters for each other... [[NoManOfWomanBorn Stronger than one, stronger than ten, stronger than a hundred men indeed.]]
*** Twice in the film, two characters let things go, but they are ill informed missteps. Elsa sheds her duties as queen, unaware of the growing danger she is to the kingdom, and Kristof let's Anna go to her true love, unaware of who that is.
*** Twice we're warned about the dangers of a Frozen Heart. This is quickly confirmed by the Troll two seens later who says the heart is not so easily changed from this condition. The audience is now set up to expect a Frozen Heart to appear... but remember there's two frozen hearts. The first one is clearly beautiful... it's sharp and sheer... we'll know it when we see it. And this is the one that is given a softer warning. But the next time we discuss the Frozen Heart, there's a beauty and a danger... and this danger is given a much more ominous warning. As the audience, we clearly know that Anna is the Frozen Heart... but Hans is ascribed the same condition at the end of the film. The song could be the closest thing to his VillainSong the film has without surprising the reveal.

* In Sweden "''Let It Go''", while being a popular song, is often criticized for sounding too much like a [[EurovisionSongContest schlager]]. Disney has been known for having the music in their movies match the setting. Maybe it's not a coincidence that "''Let It Go''" sounds like something that might represent Sweden in the EurovisionSongContest?

* Elsa's crown is different from her mother's...[[http://nuggles.tumblr.com/post/74902435671/everytime-i-see-a-gifset-of-elsa-and-her-mom-i because]] her mother's crown sank beneath the sea when she drowned. Also, although we don't know from the film which of Elsa's parents was the one to inherit the throne and which married into it, it's possible their mother was queen by marriage, and thus had a less elaborate crown; if true, it would probably mean Elsa would be expected to wear a more regal crown.

* In "In Summer," during Olaf's imagine spot, Anna and Kristoff appear at one point for no real explained reason and they're shown holding ridiculously large sandwiches while sitting on a picnic blanket. But then remember Anna blurted out "sandwiches!" in response to Hans's line "We finish each's others'..." in "Love is an Open Door", meaning sandwiches are one of Anna's favorite foods[[note]]This also get a nod in Disney/FrozenFever: Elsa lets Anna find a sandwich during the "treasure hunt", to which delightedly exclaims "Ooh, sandwich!". They are clearly her favorite food only second to chocolate[[/note]]. So when Elsa created Olaf, he got many of her memories of Anna and thus imagines Anna making an oversized sandwich, or something like that.

** Additionally, the meaningfulness of her not being able to finish the word, sentence and song because her running into Hans. It goes like this:
--->'''Anna:''' ''[Exhilarated]'' Nothing's in my waaaa-''[BAM, slams into Hans]''
::: Signifying 1) Anna you're wrong, something ''is'' in your way 2) That something is Hans.

** Another real life example: the former queen of the Netherlands' birthday was January 31st, but its celebration (a national holiday, during which everybody goes out on the streets) was April 30. They just kept the date of the birthday of the queen before that (her mother). The current king's birthday is April 27th and now it is again celebrated on that exact date.
