5 Things You Probably Didn't Know About 'Frozen'

'Frozen' is the most successful animated film of all time.  In late January, it passed the previous title holder, 'Finding Nemo's' $339 million in domestic ticket sales. And, as of today, it stands at just over a billion dollars in worldwide sales. Tomorrow's scheduled DVD/Blu-ray release is only going to add the the fortune Disney has amassed from the movie.  If you have a daughter, you probably already know all the lyrics to 'Let it Go'.  If not, congratulations.  You'll have plenty of time to learn the words, the next 647 times you watch the movie.

Here are a few little tidbits about the movie that you can use to impress your kids, or your significant other:

1.)  Google "of course".

If you go to Google and type in "of course", it will auto-populate with "Of course I want to build a snowman".  Yes, 'Do You Want to Build a Snowman?' has become THAT popular.  In the event that you are unfamiliar with 'Do You Want to Build a Snowman' (I apologize in advance for the poor quality.):

2.) Rapunzel and Flynn Rider make a cameo in 'Frozen'.
If you watch closely during 'For the First Time in Forever', you will see Rapunzel and Eugene come into the frame from the left.  It's immediately after the gates are opened, and just as Anna is starting the first chorus of the song.

3.) Keep an eye out for the disclaimer at the end of the credits.

All men do it.  Even princes.  :)

4.) The writers were obviously fans of 'Arrested Development'.
Used in 'Love is an Open Door'. (Again, sorry for the poor quality.):

The Duke of Weselton even does the Chicken Dance:

5.) Robert Lopez, co-writer of 'Let it Go', is only the 12th person to win the EGOT.

EGOT is an acronym for Emmy, GRAMMY, Oscar, Tony.  It's the grand slam of songwriting.  Lopez won a Daytime Emmy for music written for 'The Wonder Pets'.  He won both the GRAMMY and the Tony for songs written for 'The Book of Mormon'. He won another Tony for work on Avenue Q.  And, most recently, the Oscar for Frozen's 'Let it Go'.
There is a parody of 'Do You Want to Build a Snowman?', called 'Will You Help Me Hide a Body?'...and it is GLORIOUS.  Hopefully this will get you through marathon binge watching sessions.


  1. I really laughed out loud at the last video. It is cool finding out things about movies. My family always reads trivia after we watch something.

  2. lol and lol again!
