Anna – Frozen (Disney, 2013)

Anna Reine des Neiges (1)Gingers are definitely Disney’s favorites. After Ariel, Penny, Megara or Merida, meet Anna! In the new Christmas animated Disney movie, “Frozen”, she is the sister of Ice Queen Elsa, and the main character of the movie. A surprising choice when you know that Elsa, (the Ice Queen) is blonde and has super powers that makes her a witch in everyone’s eyes. If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the plot summary :

Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen‘s fairy tale The Snow Queen, the film tells the story of a fearless princess who sets off on an epic journey alongside a rugged iceman, his loyal pet reindeer, and a hapless snowman to find her estranged sister, whose icy powers have inadvertently trapped the kingdom in eternal winter.

Unlike her older sister Elsa, Anna is very eccentric, optimistic, energetic, awkward, and far from elegant. She usually acts before she speaks and can be rather impulsive, but holds a lot of innocence to her, nonetheless. She has glittering blue eyes, rosy cheeks, thin lips, long strawberry red hair tied into two pigtail braids, bangs on the right side of her forehead and a dusting of freckles (a trait that she shares with her sister Elsa, even though Elsa appears to have less freckles than Anna does). When she wears sleeveless dresses, it is shown that she has some freckles on her shoulders as well as on her face. No doubt, she is a true ginger!

Anna Reine des Neiges (2)The movie itself is a touching story of love between two sisters and tolerance. Elsa has magic powers that aren’t harmful until she gets tied up  and gets scared. I will not tell you the end of the story but what I can tell you is that the images are beautiful, the characters are funny and very human. A true Disney movie!
