A study of new princess Anna from Disney's new upcoming 3D film ''Frozen''.
EDIT: If you wish to post this on Tumblr,please reblog from my original account :3 Tumblr link-----> [link]
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 brother NEIGHBOR (I totally forgot he was her friend next-door) of Gerda who gets kidnapped by the Snow Queen? Apparently he's not even present in the movie. He's going to be replaced by a dude named Kristoff (awesome name,I'll give them that). OH and get this, Anna is the Snow Queen's sister,whose name is Elsa. I just-...WHAT?
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.
I see Anna fell on yet another icy cold river, thus freezing her garments to the point she can't even walk right. Oh Anna, what are we gonna do with you? Research and develop a thread that can withstand even the lowest of temperatures?
Ok first off let me just say something here, I saw the snow queen and frozen and frozen is nothing like the snow queen so they have nothing to do with each other. Elsa isnt evil and anna is not gerda thats why shes a princess and not an orphan and frozen was cute. Again, NOTHING like the snow queen.
I saw the movie yesterday and I absolutely love it. That besides the point, you can't just come on artworks and post spoilers. They aren't major spoilers,but they are spoilers nonetheless. Please try to be more considerate to others,thank you.
So, your Highness. Aren't you on your way to the bar to drink, just because that's one of your ways to deal with your sister shutting you out? Because I could tell from your body language in that you must be lonely.
Disney's original ideas show that it was going to be bery similar to the original fairy tale. However, there was already another 3D animation of the Snow Queen (Ibelieve it was a European production) so they probably decided that their movie wouldnt do well with competition. Im glad they called it "Frozen" and not "The Snow Queen" because it lets this movie be the story of Frozen, which in my opinion was a beautiful story.
Your art is beautiful (the colors are gorgeous and vibrant, the expression is so sweet), but I really think that people shouldn't support this movie. It has a lot of bad messages, like what you mentioned in the comment. Here's more: [link]
Everyone's so skeptical about this movie, but I have to say the more I look into it the more excited I get for it! I remember everyone was SOOOO freaked out over Tangled, and now she's one of Disney's most iconic characters.
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
I hate to say this, but I think for those of you who love the coupling Jarida (Jack Frost x Merida), Merida may have some competition with this one. Not only is she lovely and funny, but she has a history related to WINTER!!! Imagine that! WINTER!!! Jack's a WINTER spirit and this girl has something related to the season he controls. That's a bad combination for someone like Merida if she was already in love with Jack.
Now, I just hope Anna falls in love with this Kristoff guy, cause if she stays single, Jarida's in trouble.
I know, but I like Jarida better. I mean it makes a little sense. Merida and Jack are both single, they're free spirits, and they're top-notch warriors when provoked, plus they're GREAT older siblings. Sure, Merida's more a firey-type warrior and Jack is more cool-headed. But still, I like the idea of Jack and Merida being happy together.
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).
It's fine that you do like it a better. The problem that Jarida faces is that JackxAnna or "Janna", I guess makes more sense.
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.
Possibly. To me, I imagine Punzie, Merida and Anna as besties in the royal court cuz they're the CGI trio. Maybe Rapunzel would be the peacemaker between the two?
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.
Technically Rapunzel is both and good for Merida! She's the second red-headed girl. There are actually 5 dark haired princesses, 2red heads, and 3 blond haired ones
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
Hi! Please first let me say: your drawing is amazing and Anna looks so cute and innocent! Lovely! 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
