son of a bitch
Which means Rapunzel and Flynn being in Arendelle was likely them on their honeymoon!
Elsa created Olaf. As his builder, part of her personality went to Olaf (likewise, the other characteristics that she ingrained in him). It’s very possible that Olaf stands for the innermost longing of Elsa’s heart. That is why we can all see how much Olaf loves Anna and how much he tries to protect her the same way that Elsa would have. Moreover, Olaf would display the same feelings as Elsa.
Elsa has always wanted to be near Anna. But, because of the curse, she had to stay away from her. For that reason, Olaf can always be seen around Anna.
Elsa and Olaf have the same belief about love. They both know that love means sacrifice. Notice the funny reaction of Olaf when they were on their way to Hans to save Anna? He was very stunned that Anna’s true love is someone he hasn’t heard about. That’s not far from Elsa’s belief that Anna couldn’t marry someone she just met. Later on in the movie, they both have the same surprised reaction when they realized that love is the answer she needed to thaw the ice and to bring back summer.
I feel like this is a line that just goes casually by but then you realize it’s actually pretty profound.
okay so i’ve been wanting to talk about this for a while bc this line is more than just a profound quote, but also foreshadowing the rest of the movie in multiple ways.
firstly Elsa. As a child, her heart is pure and good. this does not change as she grows older. but her head is persuaded to think of herself as an evil monster, and this is what causes her depression and anxiety. she doubts she can be anything but this, because although her heart is full of love and is not so easily changed, her head has been convinced to think she is a danger.
now, Anna. in her heart she has always loved her sister, but her head has been persuaded to think that Elsa doesn’t care for her and this impacts their relationship. but deep down, despite the memory loss and Elsa’s absence through childhood, Anna knows all along, in her heart, that her sister loves her too.
finally, and this is probably the most interesting: Hans. The heart is not so easily changed, but the head can be persuaded. Hans has a malicious, selfish heart, but Anna’s head is easily persuaded. She is tricked into thinking he is her true love — and her head still thinks this even after it is obvious her heart belongs to Kristoff. Her heart’s choice is definite, but it is not until her conversation with Olaf that her head catches up with this realisation.
the troll’s quote basically sums up one of the main messages of this film: do not be naive, people are not always what they seem. But true colours will eventually reveal themselves.
