When Elsa is holding the scepter and orb in Frozen, the bishop proclaims: “Sem hón heldr inum helgum eignum ok krýnd í þessum helga stað ek té fram fyrir yðr…” In English this means: “As she holds the holy properties, and is crowned in this holy place, I present to you… Queen Elsa of Arendelle”. In the script, it reads: “Sehm hon HELL-drr IN-um HELL-gum AYG-num ok krund ee THES-um HELL- gah STAHTH, ehk the frahm FUR-ear U- thear…”

Producer Peter Del Vecho explained the English title change from “The Snow Queen” to “Frozen”: “The title Frozen came up independently of the title Tangled. It’s because, to us, it represents the movie. Frozen plays on the level of ice and snow but also the frozen relationship, the frozen heart that has to be thawed. We don’t think of comparisons between Tangled and Frozen, though. The decision to call the film Frozen was the filmmaker’s decision. The studio’s decision to then call it The Snow Queen overseas was because that just resonated stronger in some countries than Frozen. Maybe there’s a richness to The Snow Queen in the country’s heritage and they just wanted to emphasize that.” As he continued to make his statement, “We’re telling a story about family and relationships and that in itself can be very complicated. A lot of times what you perceive something to be isn’t what it turns out to be - Elsa has to hide for her whole life who she is, even from her sister. That clearly affected her and made her into the character she is. Hopefully, if you look at the story through Elsa’s eyes, you’ll be able to understand what she does, or if you look at it through Anna’s eyes, you’ll be able to understand why she does what she does, but they’re all complicated relationships. We don’t think of it as a Princess movie. They happen to be Princesses, but we don’t think about it that way, so I always get a bit thrown when people talk about this. But I can say we want to make them really believable and not set them up on a pedestal. Our version of these characters should feel really real and be relatable to things you might go through in your life.”
