In “Frozen,” Elsa got her nickname, the Snow Queen, because she possesses magical powers over snow and ice. The sensitive elder daughter of the king and queen of Arendelle, Elsa accidentally causes a never-ending snow to fall over the kingdom, which causes her to become fearful of her powers and uncomfortable being her true self. With her sister Anna’s love and support, Elsa eventually learns to “let it go” and stops being afraid.
