Question: Do the King and Queen of Arendelle really have a relationship with the King and Queen of Corona? If so, then what kind? Are they relatives or merely friends/allies? If they are relatives, does that mean Anna and Elsa are cousins with Rapunzel?
New this week Answer: Nothing has been confirmed officially, I believe. However the creators were fascinated by fan theories and said that they'll leave that to the viewer's imagination.
Question: How did Olaf find Anna in the room Hans locked her in?
Answer: He was poking around the castle and by chance found Anna.
Question: How did Elsa and her subjects find out about the duke's intention to kill her, giving Elsa the reason to banish him?
Answer: The duke was the strongest opponent of Elsa from the start, calling her a monster and noting how dangerous she was the second he saw her ice powers. Later, his guards (who Elsa had already seen at the ball and were dressed in his colors) showed up at her ice castle and actively attacked her, trying to kill her even as their own lives were in danger. She could naturally assume they were following his orders and that he wanted her dead.
Question: It becomes clear why Hans intends to kill Elsa. Here's what I don't understand though. One of the Duke's body guards tries to shoot Elsa with his crossbow, but Hans redirects the shot toward the chandler so to have it crash down on the Snow Queen. Why would Hans need to kill her that way? If he is eager to kill Elsa then why doesn't he just let the body guard kill her with an arrow?
Answer: He doesn't need to kill her any particular way, that was an accident. He only meant to redirect the shot away from her to keep up the pretense of being on her side because he wasn't ready to reveal his plans to everyone yet.
Question: Since the gloves do a good job at hiding Elsa's powers, why would she need to stay away from Anna?
Answer: They don't restrict her powers, as made obvious by the snow and ice in her room when she's locked in it. They just hide the obvious effects on her hands to try and keep her from thinking about it.
Question: How did Hans and his army find Elsa's ice palace?
Answer: They simply went looking and found it. They didn't know exactly where it was. They knew it was on the North Mountain because thats where the storm was coming from, so that's where they went looking.
Question: Even though Elsa is the one who needs to be isolated due to her powers, why does Anna have to stay in the castle too? Why is Anna never able to leave the castle until she is older?
Answer: She probably didn't want to leave the palace if she knew her sister couldn't leave either. Besides, she is a small child, and the castle is where her parents live. She's too young to just go out on her own.
Question: When the king and queen set off on their ship, where is their journey to and for what reason?
Answer: The creators gave two reasons when asked, one stated they were going to Fantasy Land and another stated a wedding.
Question: When Kristoff takes Anna into the Valley of the Living Rocks, seeing that Anna is freezing, he suggests she warms herself up by one of the holes where steam is coming out. If the valley is heated by the steam, why doesn't Olaf feel the heat or melt?
Answer: Olaf doesn't sit by the steam vent as he does later by the fire with Anna, so who's to say that it is warm everywhere? It could be very localised.
Question: Why did Anna have to be shielded from all knowledge of magic? I understand that to save her, they had to remove her memories from the past. But what would happen if she found out before she did?
Answer: Most probably because her parents didn't want Anna to think Elsa was some sort of freak or monster.There is evidence to suggest that people who can use magic are seen as such during Elsa's escape from Arendelle, where all the townspeople and, quite notably, the Duke of Weselton, were in a state of fear after Elsa accidentally showed everyone her powers. It makes sense, therefore, to hide the truth from a young Anna so that she would not start avoiding or fearing her sister.
Question: After Kristoff and Sven leave the kingdom, Sven tries to prevent Kristoff from moving any further. Why? Is Sven trying to tell Kristoff about the blizzard the kingdom is in since he feels it, or is he just trying to convince him to return to Anna?
Answer: Sven knows that Kristoff has feelings for Anna, so by not going any further, he is trying to convince Kristoff to return to Anna.
Question: In terms of the scene when Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven are chased by the snow monster, I have two questions to ask. 1) Why does Olaf call the monster Marshmallow? 2) While Anna, Kristoff, and Olaf fall off the cliff and Sven runs into a different direction when the chase begins, how does Sven get down to the bottom of the cliff?
Answer: 1. Because the monster looks like a marshmallow. 2. Sven knows that area well, he probably just went a different direction that leads to the bottom of the cliff.
Question: Why didn't grandpapa troll tell Anna about her earlier accident when she is with Kristoff and the trolls? All memories of magic are removed from Anna after her sister accidentally freezes her head. Later on she states that she had been best buddies with her sister, but then suddenly one day her sister shut her out and she didn't know why. There was a perfect chance to have grandpapa troll tell Anna about the first accident which would not only explain why she was shut out, but that it was because her sister loved her and was trying to protect her. Instead the movie ends with Anna not finding out the truth - although Elsa probably would tell her later.
Answer: I don't think the trolls were thinking of that at the time because they were focusing on the problem of Anna's frozen heart.
Question: What does Olaf mean by asking, "Who's the funky-looking donkey?" Was he referring to Krisftoff? Olaf initially mistakes Krisftoff to have the same name as Sven and does not learn his real name until he meets the trolls. Why doesn't Krisftoff or Anna correct him about Kristoff's name?
Answer: It's a joke. He asks who the funny looking donkey is, meaning Kristoff. Everyone assumes he's talking about Sven.
Question: While they are being chased by wolves, Anna uses Kristoff's lute to strike one of the wolves. Did she really aim for a wolf, or was she actually trying to hit Kristoff for misjudging her? In other words, was hitting the wolf just an accident?
Answer: She was aiming for the wolf. Hitting Kristoff was an accident.
Question: When reaching Elsa's ice palace, Anna asks Kristoff and Olaf to wait outside the palace while she goes in to find her sister. Yet, Olaf follows Anna in to meet the Snow Queen, and then Kristoff comes to defend Anna as Elsa strikes her in the heart with her magic. While Kristoff and Olaf were supposed to wait at the front door, Anna and Olaf follow Elsa up the stairs and into another room. How did Kristoff figure what might happen in that room? Why doesn't Kristoff or Olaf wait at the front door like Anna asked them to anyway? Also, when Kristoff tells Anna not to throw a snowball at the snow monster, why does she act calm and suddenly do the opposite of what Kristoff says?
Answer: Olaf follows Anna into the castle because a) the minute he agreed to wait was over, and Olaf takes things LITERALLY, b) he was eager to meet Elsa, his creator, in person (hell, who wouldn't) ? c) he's a very impulsive person and probably just acted on impulse. Kristoff went into the castle mainly out of concern for Anna - a lot of people are just not quite convinced Elsa would never hurt her sister. Besides, people tend to not obey orders but act on their free will. Snowmonster snow fight: Anna acts calmly so that Kristoff will let her go, convincing him she won't throw the snowball and taking the first chance to do so anyway.
Question: To date, Frozen is the highest grossing animated film of all time, beating Toy Story 3. I was wondering if anyone out there could tell me what animated film is highest if you account for inflation, or only count the number of tickets sold. For example, I know that Gone With the Wind out performed Avatar by ether criteria.
Answer: The website Box Office Mojo calculates inflation adjustment for box office grosses and worked out that the highest-grossing animated films was Disney's "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves" from 1937.
Question: I can recognize Fjord horses when I see them, but I can't tell what breed of horses are pulling the ice sleds at the beginning of the film. All I can guess though is that they're draft horses. Can someone please identify what exact breed of horses are pulling the ice sleds?
Answer: In the script, when the horses come, it says: "Massive fjord horses drag heavy ice plows." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fjord_horse
