She is so strong of heart. For so much of her life, she has known pain and disappointment, but she does not let that anguish break her or destroy her hope.
In fact, the flame of hope in her soul only burns brighter. She holds on to her optimism and positive outlook on life. To do that – after going through so much for so long – shows an incredible willpower. She does not let the pain of her life overtake her, but carries herself forward and in the process becomes an inspiration to those around her.
She is determined.
She risks everything for the people she loves.
She has faith in her sister, recognizing the pain that her sister went through and how it was not unlike her own – and Anna refuses to abandon Elsa to the darkness of despair. Anna does not judge her sister, but extends an open hand to her.
Anna is her own salvation, the salvation of her sister, and the salvation of Arendelle.
This is not something you can pull off without total cooperation and trust.
Look how much better skilled Elsa is leading competently her sister.
Notice her body language. She changes her body balance trusting that Anna will support her while she is unstable. Elsa tightens the grip on her sister while looking deeply in her eyes with a promise of change to come.
And Anna perfectly adapts, reading her sister’s body language easily and responds by bending her knees in preparation for whatever will happen and sticking to Elsa for life.
And off they go in a mad twirl of perfect trust and understanding.
“I always hate how some people say that Frozen shows a “healthy” relationship between sisters. As a person who has three older sisters, I can safely say that that’s not how I act towards them (and we have a pretty healthy relationship), and Lilo&Stitch probably did a better job of showing a healthy relationship between sisters. (I still think the movie was pretty good)”
Sidon didn’t know how long he had been standing under the frozen figure of his sister. Probably at least three hours, given that the sun had set since he began. He had to remain strong for his people, for his father, for Link. But, sometimes, it was a lot harder than he would like to admit.
