Top 50 Frozen Movie Details

While searching the internet for Frozen movie facts, I found some interesting little known details. Obscure enough that most people could miss it, I want to make you a favor by creating ordered lists with the most intriguing hidden details.

Most of them are not blatantly obvious to be observed at first sight, so take your time and read carefully. We have extensive definitions that accurately explain any behind the scene meaning or famous dialogues.

When Grand Pabbie tells young Elsa that there is beauty in her power, her silhouette matches the scene at the end of the movie when she finally gains full control of her powers and freezes the fountains beautifully in front of an adoring crowd.

Trivia

I have collected all the famous movie trivia questions with answers from Reddit and other sources. They can be very useful in quizzes or games, or simply to learn more information. Most of the fun Frozen details are suitable for kids.

  1. Two men are arguing about which way wood should be stacked. In 2013 there was a heated debate in Norway about stacking wood either bark side up or down, so much so that it became part of the culture. Since Frozen is inspired by Norway it was added in as a nod toward the debate.

  2. The editors made a mistake that you can clearly see if you pause the video at the right moment. Kristoff's finger disappears inside Anna's side as if it were a computer game.

  3. The water spirit is a horse, based on the Nokk from Scandinavian mythology (usually represented as a horse). The Nokk isn't the only ethereal being associated with horses. Poseidon was the Greek god of seas, storms, earthquakes, and....horses.

  4. The siren call in Frozen 2 (2019) is based on Kulning, an ancient Scandinavian herding call

Easter Eggs

Finding Easter Eggs in movies is one of my favorite hobbies. Hidden objects, characters, and their meanings are wonderful ways to discover the filmmaker's perspectives of any given movie.

Olaf can't fully bend his arms at the elbow. The only time he can is during his summer fantasy.

Anna tells Kristoff and Olaf to wait outside the Ice Palace for a minute, and they sit down to start counting. After 60 seconds in real time, Olaf finishes his count and enters the palace.

Olaf waits exactly 60 seconds, as promised.

When Hans confronts Elsa, he is emitting steam when he opens his mouth. Notably, Elsa does not, meaning she is cold on the inside, and thus the cold doesn't bother her.

1 - The opening song "Frozen Heart" is a bunch of strong dudes singing about how dangerous and uncontrollable ice is, and how it's stronger than 100 men, but the story is about Elsa commanding ice with the slightest gesture or thought.

I am pretty sure that you've watched Frozen, maybe in a theater near you or on the small screen, but probably not many of the small details have taken your attention. Most of the previous facts are hidden for some reason, but still, there is plenty of randomly forgetten stuff that makes the movie unique and interesting. The more you know, the more fascinated you'll be about Frozen and will watch it online, download or stream it again and again.
