Argument: Frozen Is Disney's The Shining

All work and no play makes Elsa a dull girl.

Disney has long claimed that the hit movie Frozen is a retelling of the classic folk tale The Snow Queen.

Do you believe the official story?

Mary Katharine Ham doesn't. In a systematic argument, she explains how it is actually a remake of Stanely Kubrick's 1980 horror film The Shining.

It all makes sense. Olaf is Wendy Torrance. Anna is Danny Torrance. Elsa is Jack Torrance. They're cut off from the rest of the world in the Overlook Hotel, which is trapped in an eternal winter.

Power is growing within Danny. A dark, unearthly power. Elsa can't control it. And it will destroy them all.
