The Snow Queen : 5 things you never knew (maybe) not on the cartoon

While you can still see The Snow Queen 2 cinema, M6 broadcasts on Monday, 23 December the first pane, The Snow Queen. But are you sure to know everything about the movie ? Here are 5 things you never knew (maybe) not on the cartoon signed Disney.

1. A project that date

The Snow Queen was released in the cinema in 2013, but the project does not date from yesterday. You do know this, perhaps not, but the film is adapted from the story The snow Queen written by Hans Christian Andersen and published in 1844 in the anthology New Tales. As soon as the 1940s, Walt Disney wanted to adapt this story, but the project fell to the water. He then returned several times on the table, especially in the late 1990s. It was only in 2008 that the adaptation came to fruition when Disney convinced Chris Buck, co-director of Tarzan, to return to work for the studios. This last was then referred to one of these projects is a film The Snow Queen which he then co-reality with Jennifer Lee.

2. Elsa should be the villain of the film

Adored from both large and small, Elsa has not always been the heroine of The Snow Queen. To paste up the story of Hans Christian Andersen, the writers had first made Elsa the big bad of the story : it was supposed to have launched intentionally a curse on Arendelle. It is only afterwards that Hans was introduced into the story and became the villain of the film.

3. A writing express to be Released, issued

Released, delivered, became a huge hit, which sometimes has a few drunk dads and moms. And it didn’t take long to write the lyrics of the song entitled Let it Go in English : less than 24 hours ! What are Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, who are married in the life who wrote the title. They were told they saved the title after a ride in Prospect Park in Brooklyn.

4. Guests not unknown

Have you noticed that several of the Disney characters hiding in The Snow Queen to start with… Mickey mouse ? We can see that in the scene where Anna meets Kristoff. Another character who made an appearance : Rapunzel (without the long hair).. You can find her at the coronation of Elsa. This is obviously not the first time that characters from the Disney universe call in another film.

5. The hard work of the animators

To create The Snow Queen has not been easy, especially for the animators who worked on the project. To create the hair of Elsa, they even had to create a new software ! Yes, the hair of Elsa contain over 400,000 strands (so that it has 100 000 on average on a human). For the purposes of the film, the animators also had to create more than 2000 kinds of flakes of snow. The scene the longest to animate to the required 132 hours of work : this is the one where Elsa observes the world from the top of his ice castle. Finally, 50 people worked on the scene where Elsa created her castle, and that only lasts 36 seconds.
