What’s Next For Anna Faith Carlson, The Real Life Elsa From ‘Frozen’


Idina Menzel

If you’re looking for a real life version of Elsa from Frozen, you’d be hard pressed to find anyone better than Anna Faith Carlson. The 18 year old from Florida has quickly become a viral sensation thanks to her uncanny resemblance to the popular Disney princess. But what does the future hold for the living, breathing version of Elsa, really, what are the career options for a real life Disney princess?

FrozenElsa and Anna, the animated versions

Anna Carlson looks like Elsa from Frozen, this is pretty much an indisputable fact and something which the young model is all too well aware of. Anna was the one who first noticed the resemblance when she sat down to watch Frozen for the first time last December. "Every time I watch [the movie], it's weird because it's like I'm watching myself. It's kind of creepy,” she told the Orlando Sentinel newspaper. As creepy as watching the movie might be, Anna has no problem with exploiting her Elsa resemblance for a few thousand likes on Instagram. Her profile is full of pictures of herself dressed as the Disney character and she even went to her high school prom in full Elsa garb! But she’s also been putting her unique claim to fame to good use, by visiting sick children at Florida hospitals and performing a special rendition of ‘Let it Go’, the film’s famous song. To add extra authenticity to her act, she’s even recruited her actual sister, Lexie Grace, to perform with her playing Elsa’s sibling in the movie.

A Florida teen has become an internet sensation after sharing a photo of herself dressed as Disney's Frozen princess, Elsa, via Instagram. 18 year-old Anna Faith Carlton's remarkable physical similarity to the animated princess as well as her meticulous attention to the character's hair, make-up and outfits have made her an instant internet star.

Anna rapidly shot to 350,000 followers after her striking image was even shared on the news: "It was everywhere, and I was, like, what is happening, I don't understand," she said.

Idina Menzel Robert Lopez Disney Finding Nemo

Anything Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez put their name to will immediately turn to gold given the monumental success of Frozen and their hugely respectable selection of highly regarded past projects. The animated Disney film not only won an Oscar for the song “Let It Go”, which featured Idina Menzel on vocals, but also attracted audiences so extensive it helped cement the film as the biggest Disney smash in years. Children were enraptured by the soaring anthems penned by the Lopez duo whilst it also found acceptance and admiration from adults.

What's So Great About Disney's 'Frozen' Soundtrack?


Idina Menzel Kristen Bell

The question is really, what’s not good about the Frozen soundtrack? We’ve been playing it repeatedly on Spotify since the movie first came out, but why has it struck such a chord with kids and adults alike? We thought we’d talk you through why we think the Frozen songs may make up the greatest Disney soundtrack of all time. A big claim, but we reckon we can back it up.

Frozen Disney Soundtrack Frozen has become the highest grossing animated film of all time

Possibly the catchiest song from the Frozen soundtrack, “Do You Want To Build A Snowman”, sung by Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel AKA Elsa and Anna, hears Anna sadly serenade her big sister in the hope that she’ll come out and play with her. It sets the tone perfectly for the rest of the film, showing how sad little Anna is about her sister distancing herself. It’s the love between these two sisters that is the important theme in the animated film, rather than the usual Prince/Princess dynamic. This is important in itself, it’s a little dated these days to expect the typical boys meet girl, boy saves girl, storyline.  Frozen steers away from this, it’s a wholly more modern concept that any of the previous Disney movies.

The Long, Cold Story Behind Disney's 'Frozen'


Idina Menzel Kristen Bell

Disney’s icy adventure ‘Frozen’ can now call itself the highest grossing animated film of all time after surpassing ‘Toy Story 3’ by taking over $1.072 billion at the world wide box office. That’s quite an achievement for Disney, but what makes it all the more remarkable is the real story of how ‘Frozen’ made it to the big screen. A journey which took nearly 70 years until a seemingly small idea was mentioned.

Frozen has overtaken Toy Story 3Frozen has overtaken Toy Story 3 to becoming the highest grossing animated film

The origins of 'Frozen’ lie in the Hans Christian Andersen tale ‘The Snow Queen’, a story which had been the subject of a major Disney headache for nearly 70 years at the time of ‘Frozen’s’ inception. Back in 1943 Walt Disney saw the potential of the Danish author’s stories, which included 'The Little Mermaid’, ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’ and ‘The Snow Queen’. The original plan was for Walt to collaborate with Samuel Goldwyn to produce a biographical piece on Andersen and incorporate some of his famous works into the story, using Disney animation. Eventually the project fell through and Goldwyn went on to do his own movie on Andersen in 1952, leaving the animation part out. Despite the setback, Disney never lost sight of the potential of Andersen’s stories, most notably ‘The Snow Queen’.

Frozen has finally overtaken the sales of Toy Story 3 to become the highest grossing animated movie of all time. The Oscar-winning musical comedy dominated the box office over the winter period.

Oscar Producers Zadan And Meron Tease Some Of This Year's Biggest Moments


Ellen Degeneres Craig Zadan Bette Midler U2 Pharrell Williams Idina Menzel Karen O

Oscar producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron made a controversial hit out of the Oscars last year, but they might be on thin ice this time. Getting Seth McFarlane to host anything is a risky bet and his antics last year got a lot of people – notably the feminist crowd – pretty riled up. The controversy served its purpose. Last year’s show pulled in 40.3 million US viewers, the largest audience the show has had in three years. Zadan and Meron’s show was a hit with the key 18-49 demographic and the duo were invited back this year.

Ellen Degeneres
Ellen might be a safer choice for host, but she is far from boring.

And yet. The choice of Ellen for this year’s host suggests that the producers were at least a little bit intimidated by last year’s backlash. This year’s host, Ellen, while hilarious and ever entertaining, is a much safer option and has proven appeal with the Oscars’ key demo – women.

Idina Menzel - Let It Go


Tony award-winning Broadway sensation Idina Menzel unveils 'Let It Go' as a single following its appearance in the Walt Disney Animation adventure 'Frozen' in which she stars as the troubled Snow Queen, Elsa.

The video for the track is a clip taken from the film showing Elsa venturing up a snowy mountain looking sadly down at the ice disaster she has made of the kingdom. She appears guilty about not being able to hold in her power and just wants to hide and cut herself off from everybody, before transforming into the ice enchantress she truly is and accepting that she can't be the perfect girl everyone expects her to be and she should enjoy her unique gift instead. The song is a catchy orchestral number with a power to it that is so acutely demonstrated by Menzel's incredible vocals.

The movie, directed by Chris Buck, opened with huge success and has now been nominated for two Golden Globes with 'Let It Go' being given a nod for Best Original Song and the movie being up for Best Animated Film. If successful, the Best Song award will go to writers Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who have previously revealed it was the first song they wrote for the film.

Frozen Review


Excellent

Disney learns a lesson from Pixar's Brave, giving these orphaned princesses some feisty purpose that doesn't depend on a man. Everything else about this movie is fairly formulaic, including the requisite goofy sidekick character. But the frosty animation adds a stately, dramatic tone that's picked up by Broadway-style songs and just a hint of moral complexity in the story, which is based on Hans Christian Andersen's story The Snow Queen.

With her ability to freeze anything at a touch, young Queen Elsa (voiced by Menzel) has spent her life hidden away in the castle. No one can know her secret, including her restless little sister Anna (Bell), who meets her dream man in Hans (Fontana) on the day of Elsa's coronation. But Elsa's startled reaction to this news triggers an ice age in the kingdom, which sends Elsa fleeing to hide in the mountains. So Anna decides to track her down. She enlists help from local delivery boy Kristoff (Groff) and his pet reindeer, and as they head into the hills they encounter one of Elsa's newest creations: a singing, dancing, scatterbrained snowman named Olaf (Gad).

The winter wonderland setting gives the animators a lot to work with, and the imagery is spectacular. We actually shiver at the gleaming ice and snowy landscapes, which are so detailed that they make us want to see the film again. The characters are also sharply rendered, although they're designed without much subtlety, including the usual Disney physicality in the girls' big-eyed Barbie-like figures.
