Elsa runs away and creates an ice castle where she plans to live in order to protect Arendelle from herself. Anna heads out to find Elsa in order to break the curse of winter and bring Elsa back. Along the way she gets help from Kristoff.
Anna finds Elsa, but in an argument, Elsa accidentally freezes Anna’s heart. Anna must find a way to bring Elsa back, break the spell, and save Arendelle all before she becomes frozen.
Fun Facts about Frozen and Elsa
Elsa is one of Disney’s most complex princesses. Initially loosely based on the Danish fairy tale “The Snow Queen, ” Disney found it increasingly difficult to portray Elsa as she is more villain than heroine in the original fairy tale.

As we now know her, Elsa does do some villainous acts, however, we see her more as a princess with an internal struggle which makes her more relatable and less villain.
