How Disney’s Frozen Would’ve Looked As A Hand-Drawn Animated Film


Just when you think you’ve heard the last of Disney’s mega hit ‘Frozen’, it pops up again, this time with some brilliant artistry depicting how the animated film would’ve looked as a 2D feature.

How would ‘Frozen’ look if it wasn’t made in spectacular CGI? is a question that’s likely given no one sleepless nights, but we need ponder no longer, thanks to a user who uploaded a series of gorgeously hand-drawn scenes from the hit movie to Imgur.

Take a look at some of the lovely images below.


Included are some of the memorable scenes between Hans and a head-over-heels Anna, but also a pleasant reminder of everyone’s favourite ice monster, Marshmallow (below).


The seven images randomly appeared on the website which unfortunately doesn’t offer any details on who actually drew them. All we get is a copyright credit to Disney themselves, but the skill behind them looks rather professional to us - it could conceivably be a current or former Disney animator, or simply form part of the film’s very early concept designs, even though it does show identical scenes from the final movie. The alternative is someone’s just a conversion tool, but we want to believe someone’s taken the painstaking time to hand-draw all of these from scratch.


While we’ve not heard much from the ‘Frozen’ brand in recent months, having seen its two-year plus craze final die down, but no doubt we’ll start to hear more when the sequel begins production. ‘Frozen 2′ was about as inevitable as the sun rising, considering the first animated movie, directed by Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, was a phenomenal global hit that amassed in excess of $1.2 billion.

Disney have made a fortune with merchandise too, with huge demand for all things Elsa and Anna over the past three Christmases, the ‘Frozen’ brand is lucrative to say the least.

At present, there’s no details about where ‘Frozen 2′ will take us, only that Kristen Bell (the voice of Anna), Idina Menzel (Elsa), Josh Gad, (the loveable Olaf), and at least one of its co-directing team will return in the shape of Jennifer Lee.

The film won’t likely begin pre-production for some time though, considering Disney have their release schedules fit to burst for the foreseeable future, but there’s no harm in preparing yourselves for the ‘Frozen’ hype to swamp us once more.
