Fables and Folktales: The Snow Queen

Welcome to 2021! It's cold, it's been a hell of a journey, and sometimes it feels like we're being pelted by shattered glass. What story could've possibly fit the bill so perfectly?
Disney really missed an opportunity when they decided Frozen was going to have exactly nothing in common with the original story. Honestly that kind of analysis could be worth a video all on its own…
It's myth-y enough I'm still gonna put it in the same playlist, but it would've felt disingenuous calling it a myth, soooooo

  • I've seen the snow queen on DVD and I was fucking scared of that one scene, where the queen has the drawing of Gerda and makes it horrbile.

  • When I was little, I watched a live action movie about the Snow queen and thought it was great and got very dissapointed by Frozen. However, I didn't know the original story was so different from the live action movie. Still, I would highly recommend the movie to people. :) And I love the original story too.

  • This story is written by the same dude who once cried on the lawn of Charles Dickens for like, 2 days (or something, not sure on the length) after receiving a single bad review, which was more like constructive criticism

  • Loved the moral message at the end

  • So anyway this is my all-time favorite fairy tale from when I was young and hearing it again has been so fun. also the old lady buried the roses so Gerda wouldn't see them. It was the old lady's hat that set her off. I liked it mostly because of how l o n g it took. most fairy tales didn't have the aspect of time very relevant, and the fact that it took all their teenage years to save her friend made me happy.

    • @Lionstar16 yeah, good point 😂 It just feels like Frozen is even LESS like the original than the other Disney movies, and that's saying something. Lol

    • To be fair, many Disney films take A LOT of liberties with the original source material - for example, in the original Little Mermaid story, she fails to win the Prince's love and instead turns into sea foam

  • Ok but he solved the eternity puzzle. So is he gonna become king of the world or?

  • So hear me out: Frozen 3 - Only Elsa is basically a cameo and the original Snow Queen story plays out. The thing is that Elsa is not villainous, but instead takes Kay to her ice castle to use her magic to slow down the mirror shard from going further into him (because he as one more thing he still loves, snow, and if that goes away, it will be irreversible) but it appears like he is being kidnapped to Gurda. Anna takes the place of the woman that helps Gurda because Gurda cuts through her kingdom. The reindeer, of course, is Sven. Some changes, of course, to make it fit. Gurda’s powers probably need to be defined too. 😂

  • why ... why the heck i keep seeing this story as a different re-telling of the persephone myth .... someone got kidnap, the kidnaper is not the focus of the story but is the title hook anyway, the character who seek the other character have multiple links to nature itself and have load-some of other nature-theme characters either helping or assist with detective arc, .....Oh and the thing that end up responsible for the whole thing are only briefly mention at the start of the story (zeus and the demon). And Oh the frost queen story happen across a whole year so there's the season theme too .... it can't be that much of the coincidence can it? The only different is that they swapped who got the ice-making superpower from the seeker side to the kidnaper side PS: I have a great time imagine which character in this story linked to which greek deity, totally recommended

  • Is this a Saami folktale? Reindeer and santa-esque mythology are part of Saami culture, along with the aurora borealis/elder shamans being able to communicate with animals. Lapland is way north and winter was often a very dark and sad time, even driving people to suicide. Great video, just want to know the origin of the folklore!

  • So! I'm named after Kay. Kay is actually an anglicised version of Kaj, and because in Danish 'j' makes and 'y' sounds, and the 'a' is like the 'a' in 'fall', the correct pronunciation is Kai.
