Everybody seems to have their own views on frozen. Some love it, some don't mind it, and some can't stand it. I liked frozen, and I thought it was about time I wrote another article about it. This article (like Frozen itself) will focus on Anna and her character.
-Easy to relate to
Anna has so many aspects that people can relate to. She is a bit of a 'people's princess'. For example, who hasn't at some point in their lives found themselves in an awkward position and acted like her? And, I don't know about you, but I get Anna-styled bed head all the time! I love the flawless princesses like Aurora, but an occasional Anna is refreshing.
How I look in the mornings... Sexy, I know.
What I love about Frozen, is that the princess is part of the comic relief. I have been waiting for this for a very long time. Sure, Olaf gets most of the funny lines, but Anna shines as well. She proves girls can be funny too!
Anna is such a loving person. I'm not usually sappy, but I find her heart-warming and endearing! She sacrifices herself for Elsa, she gets Kristoff that new sleigh.... She's such a cutie!
This was SO sweet of her
At first, I was planning to call Anna stupid. Then, I read Shiki_Otherside's comment and I realised Anna isn't dumb. She's just really reckless sometimes. Running off after Elsa without any real plan and leaving Hans to look after the kingdom was a really rash move. Sure, she was worried about her sister, but her actions almost resulted in her own and Elsa's death. Also, Anna getting help from a total stranger is another example of this. It takes her for ever to remember STRANGER DANGER!
Stranger danger Anna? No... Just me... Ok then.
Anna's also really irresponsible. She completely ignores her royal duty growing up. In "a sister more like me", Elsa studies and learns about her kingdom while Anna just messes about and plays. Anna is also irresponsible by abandoning her kingdom to search for Elsa. She has a sense of duty towards her sister, but her kingdom is always an after thought to her.
What a pretty face Anna!
Anna is also very ignorant at times. Falling in love with Hans was really ignorant of her. This isn't ignorant because "you can't marry a guy you just met" (lots of other princesses did that), but is because she doesn't even try to get to know Hans. She never had a chance of finding out what he was really like if she didn't even ask him his first name.
Plus, Anna is extremely ignorant towards Elsa's warnings in the "First time in forever reprise". Lines such as "Stay away" and "You'll only make things worse!" really should have prompted Anna to back off a bit. She pushed Elsa too far and got her heart frozen. This is all because of ignorance.
LISTEN TO HER ANNA!
I hope you enjoyed my article. Thanks to Shiki_Otherside for her help and thanks to dclairmont who was kind of the inspiration for this article. To those of you who are sick of Frozen: I can only apologise.
