“Quite frankly I like that Elsa, Anna, and their parents all look alike. There are plenty of families that are almost carbon copies of the other and it’s nice to see that.”

Alright, you know what? There is such a thing as family resemblance. Heck, I’ve even seen folks who were the spitting image of their parents. But these are not real people we’re talking about. These are computer generated characters who have been lazily designed (i.e. copy-and-pasted and slightly tweaked). This is not a reflection of real life, this is a move by an animation studio that didn’t care to make the main female leads visually distinctive other than a few cosmetic features, as well as their mother being a model recolor of one of the main characters.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with making characters who are related look alike; it’s a cliche as old as the medium. But at the same time, they don’t have to keep doing it. Like it’s been stated in several posts and drawings: they could have definitely made Anna and Elsa distinct from each other, especially considering they’re not twins. Elsa could have been given angular features similar to her father, but no. They had to keep her and Anna as marketably attractive as possible to sell the brand. Because heaven forbid we have a leading woman who looks unconventional or unattractive.
There are ways that you can show likeness without having to just copy-and-paste character models:


Don’t act like genetics or family resemblance had anything to do with this decision to make Anna, Elsa, and their mother all have the same face. The movie was a rush job and so they decided rather than design distinct female characters, they would just copy-and-paste to save time as well as make more marketable princesses for their brand.

^ THANK YOU

Wait, what?! THE QUEEN IS ELSA AND ANNA’S MOM. OF FUCKING COURSE, THEY’LL LOOK A LIKE. WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY COPY AND PASTE?!
The hatred for Frozen, I swear!

Did you read like any of the above text beyond the copy-and-paste thing? Also pointing out flaws =/= hatred necessarily. I can point out flaws in my favorite films of all time. That doesn’t mean I don’t adore them. It just means I don’t think they’re perfect.

What especially annoys me is the fact that the mother from Frozen (her name is Queen Idun apparently? Gee would have been nice to hear that in the film or something) has not only the exact same hairstyle as Elsa, but that she had the same hairstyle at the beginning of the movie when the girls were like <5 and at the point of her death over ten years later! Did fashions in Arendelle not change for over a decade? Why does the presumably 30+ year old mother have the exact same hairstyle as her teenage daughter?
