Still unable to let it go, Frozen producers have revealed they had an alternative ending for the highest-grossing animated movie of all time.
Thankfully, they scrapped it.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Producer Peter Del Vecho said in the original story Elsa and Anna were not sisters and Elsa was an evil snow Queen.
"When we started off, Anna and Elsa were not sisters. They weren’t even royal. So Anna was not a princess,” Del Vecho said. “Elsa was a self-proclaimed Snow Queen, but she was a villain and pure evil — much more like the Hans Christian Andersen tale. We started out with an evil female villain and an innocent female heroine and the ending involved a big epic battle with snow monsters that Elsa had created as her army.”
He added: “The problem was that we felt like we had seen it before,” Del Vecho says. “It wasn’t satisfying. We had no emotional connection to Elsa — we didn’t care about her because she had spent the whole movie being the villain. We weren’t drawn in. The characters weren’t relatable.”
As Daily News explains, in the earlier draft, "Elsa is a scorned woman; she was stood up at the altar on her wedding day and froze her own heart so she would never love again."
Everyone assumes Elsa is the villain in a prophecy that “a ruler with a frozen heart will bring destruction to the kingdom of Arendelle.”
The end of the movie sees Elsa creating an army of snowmen to attack the heroes. Hans triggers an avalanche to stop Elsa; however, in the end, it's Elsa who saves the town from the Avalanche. Elsa's heart melts and she learns to love again.
