” Let It Go “. This flagship song from “Frozen”, which was sung by millions of children after the film’s release, did not please everyone. Starting with fundamentalist pastor Kevin Swanson who gave a very personal analysis of the animated feature film.
Snow Queen : the height of Disney’s fourth golden age
It will have taken a long way before Disney becomes the great Disney again, following the total triumph of Snow Queen. Indeed, during the 2000s, Disney animation studios are experiencing a slump, characterized in particular by fierce competition from its competitors. Indeed, Pixar (bought by Walt Disney Studios in 2006) shines and brings an innovative animation, in addition to delivering films with more adult messages. As for Dreamworks, it too begins to carve out a royal share thanks to animated feature films more sarcastic than those of the house of Mickey (just see the saga Shrek to realize it). However, the alarm clock rings in the late 2000s.
Indeed, The princess and the Frog (2009) is marked by a salutary return to the studio’s roots: a princess, a traditional animation, a prince charming, wacky secondary characters and songs. One year later, Rapunzel confirms this comeback in great form from Disney. However, we observe in heroines such as Tiana and Rapunzel more “autonomous” attitudes than the previous Disney princesses. Released in 2013, Snow Queen proves it wasn’t just an impression.
Indeed, with 1.2 billion dollars worldwide, the film directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee becomes the most profitable Disney animated film of all time … before being overtaken 6 years later by Frozen 2. Praised by critics and Oscar winner twice, Snow Queen above all shows the evolution of the Disney heroines, who have become much more independent, without the help of a Prince Charming.
Promotion of homosexuality …
“Frozen might make your child be gay. This is the message that Pastor Kevin Swanson conveyed when he spoke about the film. Thus, during a broadcast on Christian radio online Generation Radio, the fundamentalist is not going dead hand in declaring that the film is a real plea in favor of homosexuality. Indeed, according to him, the reason for the discord would be found in the famous piece Let It Go ( Let it go in original version) which would imply for the character of Elsa a real coming out.
Further, in his delirium, he accuses Disney of being the Devil and of being proud to become one of the most pro-homosexual organizations there is. Accusing the studio of being responsible if his 5-year-old daughter (as well as other children who would see the film) ever became a lesbian, Kevin Swanson still ensures that he is not a conspirator …
… And zoophilia!
Although the pastor himself confesses not having seen the film, however, he has other arguments to try to dismantle it. So, in addition to his astonishment in front of a (supposed) gay Elsa, Swanson finds himself dismayed by the relationship that the sympathetic Kristoff has with his reindeer Sven. A complicity that does not seem very clear for Kevin Swanson, who also goes there with his pitiful analytical mind. Indeed, the pastor is convinced that the mountain dweller and his animal maintain a zoophilic relationship. This supposed romantic relationship is said to be Disney’s attempt to promote bestiality. Just that !
