In the 2013 Disney’s movie “Frozen,” Elsa, princess of Arendelle, possesses cryokinetic powers, with which she is able to produce ice, frost, and snow at will. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale “The Snow Queen,” this 3D computer-animated fantasy-comedy film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios successfully depicted the dynamic relationship between two sisters, Elsa and Anna.
Now, if Disney was inspired by HC Andersen’s story, in turn, I was also inspired by “Frozen,” especially when I saw two of my best friends, Vimna and Jinga together. Well, they are not blood-sisters like Elsa and Anna, but they are the closest “sisters” that I know of. That’s why I’m making this “Frozen Yoghurt” short animation. It’s my second short animation project, and I had fun creating it.
I completed “Frozen Yoghurt” just before the 2014 Oscar’s Night. I was so thrilled to see that the first two of my animations were such hits. gravity won 7 awards, including best director, out of 10 categories it was nominated for.
“Frozen” two Academy Awards for best animated feature and best original song (“Let It Go”) as well the Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Feature Film, the BAFTA Award for Best Animated movie, five Annie Awards (including Best Animated Feature) and two Critics’ Choice Awards for best animated feature and best original song.
I like “Frozen” a lot because it was a testament that a good story can be a good entertainment-education medium as well as a profitable venture. It was a commercial success with over $1.2 billion in worldwide box office revenue. It ranks as the highest-grossing animated film of all time, the fifth highest-grossing film of all time, the highest-grossing film of 2013, and the third highest-grossing film in Japan.
I hope that one day I can produce quality and profitable products for children and parents around the world like “Frozen.” Good quality entertainment can help the world to be a better place for everyone.
