Did Disney know it was launching a global phenomenon when it debuted Frozen back in 2013? Uh, they were for sho’ betting on it. And they hit the jackpot when children and adults alike were charmed by the cast of characters they found in Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, Sven, and more.
We can confirm that the magic of the Frozen universe does not diminish after the 500th viewing of the film. Or the 600th. Or when you add Frozen 2 or Olaf’s Frozen Adventure to the mix. But what made the movie so special is how it turned Disney princess tropes upside down, coloring their female leads with agency, all while presenting a form of love that went beyond the romantic. This wasn’t your childhood Disney movie and people were into it.
