Andersen's Fairy Tales
Gerda is one sweet kid. She likes to sing psalms, and when Kai is pricked by the mirror shards, she "cried out of sympathy" When Kai disappears, she's the one who goes looking for him, even throwing her favorite shoes into the river as an offering. That turned out to be a poor choice, since the river ends up carrying her away in a little boat. But even that doesn't get her down: once it occurs to Gerda that the river might take her to Kai, "that thought was a great comfort and she felt much happier"

Creatives at Disney toyed with the classic Hans Christian Andersen story back in the Snow White era, and then again in the Little Mermaid era, but only the success of Tangled made way for Frozen to finally happen. Take that, cynics. Kristen Bell helped give Anna a less standard "princess personality. So I completely related to the character. When Menzel joined the cast, Elsa had blue, spiky hair and a coat made of living weasels. No, really.

It is a coming of age story, but it also deals with faith and science, good and evil, and some of its elements are loaded with allegorical meaning. The story type Andersen uses was already known to the Ancient Greeks and some of the characteristics of the Snow Queen herself can be traced back more than a thousand years ago, to the times of the heathen religion. She is called the sky god or the sky lady. But Loki managed to do it by tying one end of a cord around the beard of a goat and the other end to his testicles, drawing one another back and forth. In The Snow Queen , two ravens help Gerda during her journey; perhaps an unintentional reference to the pair of ravens that accompany the god Odin and travel throughout the world. In the Alps regions of Germany and Switzerland they still remember the winter goddess Perchta or Bertha.
