I'M AWARE THAT THERE ARE NO OFFICAL/COMPLETE DESIGNS OF ANNA YET. I STILL FELT LIKE DRAWING THIS
Snow Queen has been one of my most favorite and most adored fairy tales ever. We Russian's even have our own short animated 2D film based on it :3
OK. SO. I have a lot of feels,guys,OK? RANT AHEAD.
Alright,first off - princess Anna. WHAT? Isn't she supposed to be a normal, regular citizen? So confused, but whatever
Second, Anna. Really,Disney? What was wrong with Gerda? I admit it's a bit of an odd,old-fashioned name but it's unique and would be instantly recognizable. Anna isn't that bad of a name though e v e
Third. Disney presents us with yet another light-haired princess. Nothing against blondes/gingers, but I feel like Disney produced enough of those recently (Merida and Rapunzel). Then again I ADORE gingers and if this design stays, it'll be Disney's first strawberry blonde princess. From what I know Giselle doesn't count. She wasn't allowed to join the official cast because of legality issues with Amy Adams.
Finally, where the hell is KAI? Kai the adorable
I'll admit that it's an interesting plot twist, though. It'll certainly be interesting to watch the change in Elsa from neutral to evil.
BUT YES. Don't take this rant too seriously.
I'm still super excited about the movie, I'm just shocked how far Disney went with the twists and redoing of the fairy tale this time. Then again, this IS Disney we are talking about. They always have their own taking on this stuff and that's part of their charm. I loved what they did with Tangled so I trust this movie will be amazing as well.

She's gorgeous as always <33
I have to say, the only thing that bother me a lot so far is how close Anna resembles Rapunzel. Other than the hair, they practically have an almost identical face, including the freckles which both Rapunzel & Merida had. I actually don't really mind them changing the story, because Disney's messed up practically every fairytale they've made into a movie XD
Now, I just hope Anna falls in love with this Kristoff guy, cause if she stays single, Jarida's in trouble.
Besides, if Anna turns out to be a better match with Jack than Merida (you know, because of the connections/relations between them) than that's what has got Jarida really in trouble.
And like you said, Anna is from a movie called FROZEN! And her character is described as free-spirited/fun loving and a young dreamer/adventurer. Already sounds like a good match to me.
I know it's not my place to ultimately decide that the two should be together and Jack would probably choose someone else, but I still like the idea of him making Merida happy. Even if it weren't to work out in the end (I'm more ok that it was a slow erosion of a relationship than an ultimate betrayal in the middle of the love scene).
Besides what I already said, Anna, like Jack, is overlooked in that the whole kingdom adores her older sister, Elsa, while Anna is sort of left off to the side. Elsa is beautiful and elegant and is the future queen while Anna is a lot more plain in contrast, and isn't really princess (let alone queen) material. Kind of like how Jack didn't think he was cut out to be a guardian
That and like Jack risked his life to save his sister, Anna does the same for her sister, Elsa.
But, yeah it's not my place either to decide who Jack's with. Merida's definitely got one over Rapunzel and even Mavis. But Anna's right up there with her.
What do you think?
But I think the public will see Rapunzel and Anna as rivals because everyone keeps saying she looks like her (and some who've seen footage say she acts a little bit like her, too) :/ Or at least compare them a lot.
Then again, I showed someone the first concept art of Anna a while back and he said she looks a bit like Rapunzel. Recently, I showed him the new CGI rendering of her and he said she looks a bit like Merida.
Considering this film was scrapped in the early 2000s, I guess i can't blame them for having a blond hair girl. Pocahontas and Mulan would have been the two that came before the film had they finished mid 2000s. 10 years from Mulan we got Tiana and Rapunzel
Second: I completely agree with you in everything you say in your description. I was incredibly excited for this movie but when I learned of the changes made to the story (two sister princess ok) and the "supposed" final design of the girls I was so dissapointed
Now I have high hopes again because some of the new stuff is great on its own (not comparing to the original tale, which is a completely different thing) and yeah, you said it, it's Disney
I also want a really badass and mean Elsa and not a royal fashion princess
I'm totally with you on the name. Yknow, cause all the other disney princess names have been uber unique and recognizable--would've been nice if her name had stayed the same but what can you do?
And you're style is beautiful! Her eyes are positively enchanting!!
I only have seen few pictures of this upcoming movie so far and didn't know about all these things but I'm still excited
