Most of you must have watched the movie Frozen and fell in love with it. Did you know this movie has Norwegian ties? Let me elaborate further.
The Kingdom of Arendelle is fictional for sure. But it pays homage to Norway’s port city of Arendal. However, the appearance resembles the city of Bergen with its Fjords.
The glaring stave churches of Norway inspired Disney movie animators, especially John Lasseter. These Gothic-styled castles added authenticity to the Norwegian-themed movie.
The setting was in the 1840s for the movie. This might come as a surprise to you. Disney was quite accurate with its depiction of 1840 in Frozen.
Even the costume design was authentic to this era. The outfits of both women and men reflected the 1800s and their fashion sense perfectly.
When everything is so precise, why would Disney spare names? Ana, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff, Hans and every name you come across in this movie is Norwegian.
