No, the title is not wrong, and the snow mascot could have gone from “drag up” if it had been up to Jennifer Lee, co-director of Frozen. At least that was her will when she became part of the project.
- 11 Disney characters that are cute
Speaking at the 15th annual Arts and Entertainment Journalism Awards in Los Angeles, Lee said his first intention was to “kill the snowman” after seeing an early cut of the feature. The director made this weird and sinister revelation after accepting the Distinguished Storyteller Award, an honor given to her by Josh Gad, the actor who voiced Olaf in the original version of the film.
Who saved the snowman, after all, was the animator working on the feature. Olaf’s script had turned out so well that it impressed the filmmakers and, luckily, the life of Anna and Elsa’s partner was spared.
It is good to note that the success of the Disney character was so great that it even resulted in a spin-off in 2017. Frozen has two Oscar statuettes and more than 1 billion dollars at the box office adding all its productions. Until then, it is the fifth highest-grossing film in the history of cinema.
