Disney has given Movie Fanatic several screenshots from its blockbuster Frozen (which topped last week’s box office) that provide what is called Easter Eggs. Each photo has a story behind it that links a scene in Frozen to something from Disney’s immediate or distant past. Our first Easter Egg photo is proof of that and it is from the coronation of Queen Elsa. Look who was invited!
Welcome to Arendelle: Elsa’s coronation draws guests from far-away lands -- and movies. From Tangled, Eugene Fitzherbert, aka Flynn Rider, and Rapunzel even made the guest list.
Next up, one of Disney’s most recent hits, Wreck-It Ralph, gets a cameo of sorts in the form of a confection! After all, Anna does love sweets!
Sweet Repeat: Anna’s affinity for chocolate summons sweet treats all the way from the land of Sugar Rush in Wreck-It Ralph.
It’s teased in the Frozen trailer, the scene where Anna goes into the shop looking for supplies to help her go find her sister Elsa. Did you notice something special on the shelf? I would have bought that, freezing cold outside or not!
It’s a Mouse: Disney’s famous icon makes the quickest of cameos in Frozen. A small Mickey Mouse plush sits on one of the lower shelves in Wandering Oaken's Trading Post and Sauna.
Lastly, another reference to Tangled!
Repurposed Painting: Artist Lisa Keene’s painting -- completed during the development phase of Tangled and based on The Swing by Jean-Honoré Fragonard -- made such an impression on Frozen filmmakers, it became part of Anna’s signature song, For the First Time in Forever, when she leaps into the air and mimics the painting’s pose.
