It was a joke.

A joke that was also extended to the credits, basically saying it was Kristof's opinion and is not shared by the filmmakers or anyone at the Disney corporation.

I'm offended as a man! Is there an organization I can complain to that will take this to the media?

Especially going into a Disney Princess movie.

IT was cute, but it needed much more Olaf.

Not debating the quality. It is a joke and you are questioning "truthfulness" of it.

Well, if it were even remotely accurate, there might be some humor in it. I just think they were really stretching for a laugh.

I don't think Elsa or Anna had enough carrots to give Olaf a dong, sorry to burst your bubble.

It was a throwaway line designed to do two things. 1. Provoke Anna (and clearly sections of the Internet), and 2. As setup. It was a silly line deliberately tailored to deliver the punchline:

"Excuse me, Sir! He is a Prince." (Arms folded. Case closed.)

Prince stereotype subverted. Loner's lonesomeness re-established. Playful banter begun. Joke made, followed up on and then hammered into the stratosphere with the credit crawl caveat.

Re: Disney's Frozen - (11/27/13)

So Frozen:

http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/...16722023392130

This past weekend, as the movie's domestic total hit $317.7 million, "Frozen" surpassed "The Lion King" to become the highest grossing Disney-produced animated film of all time, not accounting for inflation or re-releases.

World-wide, "Frozen" has now collected $712.3 million and has yet to open in a few major markets, including China.

Sunday, it won a Golden Globe award for best animated feature, helping make it a favorite for an Oscar.

As Ms. Wedde can attest, the movie's popularity has also driven successful spin-offs that are often the real drivers of profitability for a Disney franchise. Her daughter owns dresses for both of the movie's princess heroines, as well as the soundtrack album.

"We listen to the soundtrack every single day, multiple times a day," said the married mother of two in Bethel Park, Pa.

In early January, "Frozen" was No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album-sales chart, only the fourth animated film soundtrack in the chart's 58-year history to claim the top spot.
And Frozen is going to Broadway:

http://www.wired.com/underwire/2014/...ozen-broadway/

As I walked out of the theater after seeing Disney’s animated musical Frozen for the first time in November, the first thing I said was, “I can’t wait to see the Broadway version of this in 10 years.”

I may not have to wait that long. Disney CEO Robert Iger told Fortune the company is “in discussions to develop a show” (Fortune’s paraphrase). “We’re not demanding speed, we’re demanding excellence,” said Iger, which suggests aspiring snow queens should not expect to line up at open casting calls anytime soon. That said, it’s clear Disney is not waiting around to make sure Frozen becomes a perennial classic like The Lion King or The Little Mermaid — it’s planning to move the franchise to Broadway while it’s still hot. This is a great idea. Here’s why

How big is frozen? Big enough that there are a ton of reprises/covers/parodies of the songs on the net.

Here the Frozen Composers talk about some of their favorite:

Was not expecting the first variation at all, or the horror mix. Holy shit that one works well.

I think so, Most people didn't think this would out make Tangled. I think even the most optimistic person didn't think this would go past about 300 million.

Re: Disney's Frozen - (11/27/13)

being the parent of a 3 year old girl, i knew this was going to happen. the push by disney and its princess characters are at an all time high. So disney did the calculated move to make a movie involving more princesses and release it while they have the kids interest... and bam....


from Sophia the First to Princess Ana... Disney is smart
