PHOTOS: First look at “Frozen” characters Anna & Elsa is actually “fan-made,” says Walt Disney Studios

in Disney, Movies

Argentine site Cine 1 has posted a first look at what Walt Disney Studios is now calling “fan-made” images of characters from the upcoming Walt Disney Animation Studios film “Frozen.” Anna and Elsa are sisters, separated as part of the film’s story.

[Images removed by request of Walt Disney Studios, indicating they are “fan-made FROZEN posters being passed around online as official Disney art.”]

When asked if there is anything officially connected to the film in the now-removed images, a Walt Disney Studios spokeswoman responded, “They didn’t come from us, so I just know that they aren’t official. Everyone will definitely know when we send something that is.”

So it’s possible they were leaked and, if so, even more likely that they’re not finalized designs. But they may simply be of fan origin to begin with and not “real” at all.

Official “Frozen” synopsis:
Featuring the voices of Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, “Frozen” is the coolest comedy-adventure ever to hit the big screen. When a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, Anna, a fearless optimist, teams up with extreme mountain man Kristoff and his sidekick reindeer Sven on an epic journey to find Anna’s sister Elsa, the Snow Queen, and put an end to her icy spell. Encountering mystical trolls, a funny snowman named Olaf, Everest-like extremes and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.

Disney did recently release this concept art for “Frozen” as well:

“Frozen” will slide into theaters on November 27, 2013.

    Wow… I’m getting less and less excited for this movie. First the concept art of that godawful snowman and now this. There’s no creativity in these designs.

    Anna looks 80% Rapunzel and 20% like something out of the “Legends of Valhalla: Thor”-film. And Elsa looks like the Disney Fairy-line. To me, it almost looks like they took the existing 3D models and re-made the hair and re-texturized the eyes or something. So yah.

    Hopefully the environment designs will be good, at least.

      I thought it was a tangled sequel until I read the article

    I totally agree.. I thought it looked like a Rupunzel knock off and Tinkerbells sister. I was super excited for this movie, now I not so much. I love Disney movies. I hope it will surprise everyone still… :/ NEED NEW CHARACTERS

    If they were fan made then why did they have to be pulled?

      My guess is that Disney didn’t want people to continually think they were the official designs. Also I read they were early concept designs so technically it’s Disney property and they can do whatever they wish.
      I was also very upset with the designs for all the reasons said above. But I’m so happy to know it’s fake! I’m only hoping the actual designs will be the breathtaking look we want.

    i saw the officialpicture of anna in frozen :)) she looks alot like Rapunzel, BUT anna has blue icy eyes, JUST LIKE JACK FROST xD so yeah, i was thinking that Anna is Jack and Rapunzel’s daughter xD and yeah, Elsa looks so much like Jack, so it’s like Jack and Elsa are related, like siblings xD sorry, my imaginations are running wild xD

    1. Emily

      Dude……..Jackunzel or whatever isn’t even real. If Disney wanted to make something like “Jackuzel” already, they would have……… but I do like your imagination………………. DONT LOSE IT AN IMAGINATION IS SOMETIMES THE BEST THING A PERSON CAN HAVE!

    They were most likely actually fan made, Anna’s facial structure is WAY to similar to Rapunzel’s and Disney is way to smart to do something stupid like that. It’s going to be an awesome movie, as long as you guys will quit trashing it for things that weren’t even Disney’s fault. The storyline is solid, it has an all-star cast, Olaf (snowman) and Sven (reindeer) are adorable and will give the movie a shining humor that Disney is famous for. How about you wait until the movie comes out to get pissed about everything?

    1. ok, so. I watch the movie a few minutes ago and it really was Rapunzel! The Co-director even clarified that, so did the animator that created that scene! If you watch the move again, you will see!!!!!!!! P.S. im a kid and I love Frozen
