A Look at Disney: A Sister More Like Me
Enjoy this older review, I’ve been in a Frozen mood, so I wanted to share one of my favorite Frozen articles with you guys.
The art is just gorgeous and almost gives me a Mary Blair type vibe and that adds to the beauty and with the scenes with the sisters as little kids, Â cute. Â If you want more from Brittney Lee, check out this concept art of Elsa.
And this is pretty much, where the story actually kicks in. As we follow Elsa, and Anna throughout their lives, wishing for a sister more like themselves.
Elsa Â wishes for a sister that is more classy and refined and more dignified, while Elsa wants a sister that is more fun-loving and silly. Â As they show the differences between them and as Â the book goes on, Â we see how much have they changed over the course of their lives.
You were the picture of perfection, every day, no matter what
I view this line as Anna both looking up to older sister and wanting to be like her but also sad that she isn’t like Elsa. Â In many respects, this particular line is very much like Â Anna’s cut song, Â More Then Just The Spare.Â I bring up this song because like that line it delves into Anna truly feels about her relationship with Elsa. Â As if, she cannot measure up to pedestal that both the citizens of Arendelle Â and more importantly, Anna herself have placed Elsa on. Â Not realizing that Elsa is far from perfect herself and while the book really doesn’t show her fear such as this scene from the film.
I tried to understand you, but the door was always shut
Here again, we see doors make another appearance, when talking about Frozen. Â If you’ll recall my look at the Party Is Over! scene, Â I made mention of how Anna in that instance was trying to open the door that she put had always been shut. That as we know from the film is perhaps Anna’s biggest regret and this one line reinforces that notion.
Elsa & Anna
Now, I’ve decided to group the sisters together as this book was solely focusedÂ on their relationship and how they’ve drifted apart over the years.Â And this book focuses on how they wanted a friend, the wish for a sister more like themselves but it took them a long time to realize that they just needed to reconnect with each other.Â They went from this at a young age…
To finally reconnecting as adults.
My Final Thoughts
All in all, this book is a great look at the relationship between Elsa and Anna. And how much, they mean to one another.Â And how, they needed to rebuild their strained relationship that had develop over the years.Â It was very cute and very enjoyable.
