Welcome to 2021! It's cold, it's been a hell of a journey, and sometimes it feels like we're being pelted by shattered glass. What story could've possibly fit the bill so perfectly?
Disney really missed an opportunity when they decided Frozen was going to have exactly nothing in common with the original story. Honestly that kind of analysis could be worth a video all on its own…
It's myth-y enough I'm still gonna put it in the same playlist, but it would've felt disingenuous calling it a myth, soooooo

I mean, yes, you did just reinvent the plot of Inuyasha, but at the same time, you're right: the demon mirror would be interesting. It also has distinct properties of its own that are not the Shikon no Tama's generic "empower demons" thing. A cursed protagonist with a shard in his eye could even be something like a cut-rate Shiki: he can see the flaws in everything, and weaknesses are flaws, so he can clearly see everything's weaknesses.

Gasp... Is this a story that doesn't force the main characters who are friends into a romantic relationship? Especially since they happened to be different genders. And they even hug!? I didn't know there was such a thing! Jk, it's really refreshing to hear.

I suggest the black and white russian cartoon, it's really fascinating and inspired Hayao Miyazaki to follow his passion into children's animation.

I wonder, could you guys do the Phantom Tollbooth/The Graveyard Book? Although book are kids books, they are very interesting and almost humorous.

Know this one since childhood, with slight variations here and there, and it's still better than Frozen.

When I was little, I watched a live action movie about the Snow queen and thought it was great and got very dissapointed by Frozen. However, I didn't know the original story was so different from the live action movie. Still, I would highly recommend the movie to people. :) And I love the original story too.

This story is written by the same dude who once cried on the lawn of Charles Dickens for like, 2 days (or something, not sure on the length) after receiving a single bad review, which was more like constructive criticism
Lionstar16 Před 9 dny
And Charles Dickens thinking "What did I do to deserve this?! 😠"

Lydia Před 11 dny
So anyway this is my all-time favorite fairy tale from when I was young and hearing it again has been so fun. also the old lady buried the roses so Gerda wouldn't see them. It was the old lady's hat that set her off. I liked it mostly because of how l o n g it took. most fairy tales didn't have the aspect of time very relevant, and the fact that it took all their teenage years to save her friend made me happy.

This feels like narnia with less plot and characters
TheSchultinator Před 11 dny
Playing Red at half-speed makes her sound drunk and it's hilarious
wizzaroot Před 11 dny
Wow I had no idea Frozen is pretty much NOTHING like the original tale. Damn 😂
wizzaroot Před 9 dny
@Lionstar16 yeah, good point 😂 It just feels like Frozen is even LESS like the original than the other Disney movies, and that's saying something. Lol
Lionstar16 Před 9 dny
To be fair, many Disney films take A LOT of liberties with the original source material - for example, in the original Little Mermaid story, she fails to win the Prince's love and instead turns into sea foam

So hear me out: Frozen 3 - Only Elsa is basically a cameo and the original Snow Queen story plays out. The thing is that Elsa is not villainous, but instead takes Kay to her ice castle to use her magic to slow down the mirror shard from going further into him (because he as one more thing he still loves, snow, and if that goes away, it will be irreversible) but it appears like he is being kidnapped to Gurda. Anna takes the place of the woman that helps Gurda because Gurda cuts through her kingdom. The reindeer, of course, is Sven. Some changes, of course, to make it fit. Gurda’s powers probably need to be defined too. 😂

I haven't heard that song in so long.. so I ended up just listening to all the Everly Brothers hits for like 2 hours 😅 still know all the words.

why ... why the heck i keep seeing this story as a different re-telling of the persephone myth .... someone got kidnap, the kidnaper is not the focus of the story but is the title hook anyway, the character who seek the other character have multiple links to nature itself and have load-some of other nature-theme characters either helping or assist with detective arc, .....Oh and the thing that end up responsible for the whole thing are only briefly mention at the start of the story (zeus and the demon). And Oh the frost queen story happen across a whole year so there's the season theme too .... it can't be that much of the coincidence can it? The only different is that they swapped who got the ice-making superpower from the seeker side to the kidnaper side PS: I have a great time imagine which character in this story linked to which greek deity, totally recommended

Is this a Saami folktale? Reindeer and santa-esque mythology are part of Saami culture, along with the aurora borealis/elder shamans being able to communicate with animals. Lapland is way north and winter was often a very dark and sad time, even driving people to suicide. Great video, just want to know the origin of the folklore!

To be honest, here, the snow queen doesn't even look all that antagonistic, she was just kinda "Oh you're cool, you can come with me" and besides, who doesn't have an army of monsters living and guarding their house?

So! I'm named after Kay. Kay is actually an anglicised version of Kaj, and because in Danish 'j' makes and 'y' sounds, and the 'a' is like the 'a' in 'fall', the correct pronunciation is Kai.

I’d actually LOVE to see a Disney movie with this. Specially so I could see a happy “talking object” singing sess where it’s just gerta trying to get closure for Kai’s death but everyone super cheery. It’d be hysterical
