Marc Drummond and Matt Robison talk about the 2013 Disney hit Frozen.
In the course of the discussion, we cover several topics, including: the sudden transformation of Hans, Frozen’s relation to the Disney renaissance that kicked off in 1989, the subversion of fairy tale tropes, romantic comedies going all the way back to Pride and Prejudice, the questionable decisions of Anna and Elsa’s parents, the many voices of Alan Tudyk, the similarities to Wicked, and the how the songs bring out and foreshadow the main themes of the movie.
There are also some dad jokes sprinkled throughout this episode. We apologize. But not really.

In Pride and Prejudice, it’s Mr. Darcy and Mr. Wickham.
