Re: Elsa, The Snow Queen (Disney)
I just saw a new article at Yahoo that debuted a batch of official posters from Disney, showing the various characters in Frozen.
Elsa's character naturally appers on the first slide, suggesting that she will indeed be the main character- as she should be.
Very pretty, with the snowy fairness of her features and her light-blonde hair- but oh, too, too thin!
The article includes some fascinating tidbits about the plot (which really should come with spoiler warnings):
From the outside, Elsa looks poised, regal and reserved, but in reality, she lives in fear as she wrestles with a mighty secret — she was born with the power to create ice and snow. It’s a beautiful ability, but also extremely dangerous. Haunted by the moment her magic nearly killed her younger sister Anna, Elsa has isolated herself, spending every waking minute trying to suppress her growing powers. Her mounting emotions trigger the magic, accidentally setting off an eternal winter that she can’t stop. She fears she’s becoming a monster and that no one, not even her sister, can help her.
Anna is more daring than graceful and, at times, can act before she thinks. But she’s also the most optimistic and caring person you’ll ever meet. She longs to reconnect with her sister, Elsa, as they were close during their childhood. When Elsa accidentally unleashes a magical secret that locks the kingdom of Arendelle in an eternal winter, Anna embarks on a dangerous adventure to make things right. Armed with only her fearlessness, a never-give-up attitude and her faith in others, Anna is determined to save both her kingdom and her family.
It sounds very exciting.
Also, here's one more picture of Elsa that I discovered online- a still from a leaked preview video (which predates the trailers in this thread) showing Elsa wielding her awesome magic:
The actual video is here. The sequence from which that still is taken appears at 1:05. It's just a short moment, but it's completely amazing.
