Okay! Here now I will rant about why I hate when people criticize Frozen because “Anna ended up with a man in the end anyway!”
That man being this guy:
lookit that adorable dork
Now I am normally rather indifferent towards Disney princes (”princes” being a loose term for the male protagonists, who usually wind up princes anyway by marriage if not birth) - the exceptions being Kristoff and Eugene Fitzherbert from Tangled.
I love Kristoff as a character because…well, he’s Kristoff. An adorable, gruff dork who somehow manages to be gruff but not unkind or offputting…
But what ticks me off when people criticize his role is what he represents: the family we choose.
Yes, Elsa and Anna choose each other from the very beginning, but their familial bond is of blood, and not what I’m talking about right now.
Anna’s family is the embodiment of “This is my family. It’s little and broken, but still good.” Anna arguably did not have a healthy family growing up…losing her bond with Elsa without even knowing why and so blaming herself, ultimately losing her parents as well. Ditto for Elsa, with the added pain of her powers being what they were, and blaming herself for what happened to Anna.
Honestly, I doubt Anna was truly in love with Hans. She was in love with the idea of being in love with Hans - and because that was the only way she knew she might have a chance of getting out of the castle she was essentially imprisoned in. She wanted family - she even mentions wanting all twelve of Hans’s brothers over.
Then of course she confronts Elsa, that all happens, and Anna heads out in the storm and meets Kristoff and Sven. Another stupid criticism: Anna “needed” Kristoff to get stuff done. Quite frankly I think the only thing Anna truly needed from Kristoff was logistical: how to get to the North Mountain. And for goodness sakes, she was locked in a castle all her life, that need is perfectly valid and unavoidable. Everything else Anna did: reaching and saving Elsa, taking Hans out like a boss…that was all her.
What I love is how Anna and eventually Elsa accept Kristoff, Sven, and Olaf into their family. This is shown perfectly by that wonderful portrait from Frozen Fever:
They’re a weird little family. Two sisters (one with ice powers), an ice harvester, a reindeer, and a talking snowman. Only two of them bonded by blood (one doesn’t even HAVE blood…or genetics), but all of them happy and…together.
Because they chose that. Anna chose Kristoff as family, and now look at them. Kristoff is more than just Anna’s boyfriend, he’s family! Just look at him and Elsa in Frozen Fever:
They’re like brother and sister. Ice Bros, as I like to say.
And that is so important. Because family is more than blood. Bonds formed by choice, whether blood related or not, are the strongest of all.
Anna ran. All she wanted was to get away, away from Kai, away from the lies. Tears blinded her as memories of the Chamberlain chased after her. Strong hands lifting her up after falls, pushing her on the garden swing, carrying her to bed when she fell asleep outside Elsa’s door. He had always been there for her, and he had always been part of her parent’s lie.
