Dark Origins of Disney Fairy Tales
In the original story, Hans Christian Anderson s The Snow Queen, the lady with the power of ice is the Snow Queen, who is nothing like Frozen s Elsa. The Queen abducts a little boy and enslaves him with her power, promising to only free him if he solves a puzzle and spell the word eternity . A little girl, with an innocent heart full of love and purity, comes and saves the boy with the power of true love, as her tears melt the splinters of an evil mirror lodged in his heart, and the boy s tears dislodge the pieces in his eyes. So it is a romantic love story, not a tale of sibling love, and the queen is evil.
