What You Didn’t Know About FROZEN

A doctor helped in the making of Frozen

No, this isn’t a story about the song “Let it go,” so you can be thankful about that, unless you aren’t sick of it yet.  But as many times as you’ve seen the movie Frozen, you still don’t know everything about this wonderful gem of Disney.  Here are 7 things you didn’t know about Frozen.


50 people worked on the technology for the scene where Elsa builds her ice palace. One frame of the scene took 30 hours to render.
(By contrast, it only takes Elsa about 36 seconds to create the entire palace in the film.)


The animators held a “Sister Summit” to understand what sisterly relationships are like.
This helped make Anna and Elsa’s relationship even stronger in the film.


The official crest of Arendelle is called a crocus.
It’s a symbol of rebirth and spring. And this whole time we thought it was just a pretty flower.


Chris Williams, who voiced Oaken, went on to direct Big Hero 6!
Maybe he added some of Oaken’s loveable nature to Baymax? We think yes.


When Anna becomes completely frozen, you can see Elsa’s signature snowflake on her iris.
Pretty cool, right? (Pun 100% intended).


Disney artists had to take a crash course in meteorology to learn about snow.
The animators brought in Dr. Ken Libbrecht a.k.a. Doctor Snow (best nickname ever!) from Cal Tech, to learn about the formation of snow crystals.


Elsa has more strands of hair than Rapunzel.
Rapunzel may have 70 feet of magic glowing hair, but Elsa’s hair contains 420,000 single strands.
