«Die Eiskönigin 2» Warum schämt sich Elsa eigentlich auf einmal für «Let It Go» bzw. «Lass jetzt los»?

Disney and its affiliates

«Let It Go» from » Frozen » is arguably one of the most recognizable and beloved Disney songs of all time. There are countless cover versions on YouTube and the official Disney UK sing-along version alone has been viewed a staggering 2.8 billion times.

But the power ballad of Elsa (sung by Idina Menzel in the original ) is not only a catchy catchy tune that has occupied the world for nine years now, but also marks an important step in the development of the character Elsa on a purely narrative level. Quite apart from the fact that the song was interpreted as a metaphor for a coming out very soon after it was released in cinemas. «Let It Go» is therefore often considered an anthem for the LGBTQ+ community.

It seems all the stranger, given the popularity and importance of Let It Go, that in a scene from Frozen 2 Elsa turns away in shame when she sees an ice sculpture of herself singing a brief excerpt from the song. So why do the makers distance themselves a bit from their own mega hit?

That’s why Elsa doesn’t like «Let go now» anymore

On the one hand, this probably has something to do with the enormous popularity of «Let It Go»: The song is apparently still very popular and will probably be discovered by young viewers for many years to come. But many less Disney-affine viewers are probably fed up with «Let It Go» by now. And that’s exactly what the makers want to allude to here with a wink.

On the other hand, Elsa is now grown up: in the last six years, the youthful Elsa has not only become a reigning queen, but also a grown woman. And as such, she would probably no longer do many things the way she once did as a young girl. It can get embarrassing when you think back to the past. Anyone who goes back six years on their Facebook wall after entering adult life is probably ashamed of one or the other posting and can therefore understand Elsa’s reaction to her singing performance from the first «Frozen» film only too well.

Also: Elsa seems to find peace with herself and her powers during «Let It Go», but at the same time it becomes clear in the film that she still does not have her magic completely under control even afterwards: As Anna (Kristen Bell) her sister in the newly created Ice Palace, Elsa’s powers erupt and an icy projectile hits Anna’s heart.

So Elsa’s self-imposed exile in the mountains is obviously not a solution. A happy ending is only possible when Elsa and Anna reflect on their sisterly love and Elsa returns to Arendelle. Therefore, in «Frozen 2» Elsa doesn’t look back (only) with positive feelings on the «Let It Go» phase in her life.

After «Frozen 2»: It could continue in «Frozen 3».
