Elsa, Frozen

Queen Elsa or simply Elsa is a main character of the movie Frozen and in the upcoming sequel, Disney's iteration of The Snow Queen. In that movie, she has secluded herself from the people of Arendelle by fleeing to the mountains and creating an ice palace. Elsa apparently is born with the power to create ice out of her own hands.


As the queen regnant of the Kingdom of Arendelle, Elsa appears calm, reserved, regal and, unlike her sister, is experienced in grace, energy, and poise. Beneath this elegant appearance, however, Elsa is quite complex; in truth, Elsa is troubled with her abilities — a trait that stems from a traumatic incident as a child. When she was younger, she had cared strongly for Anna and, although she was the more mature and reserved of the two sisters, Elsa was still quite playful. However, ever since her magic nearly caused her sister's death, Elsa had lived in fear and trauma for a great amount of her life, too nervous to let her powers overdevelop. As a result, she chose isolation from everyone she cared about, including Anna, out of fear that she could hurt them and kept things to herself rather than communicate or be around anyone.


Elsa is a strikingly beautiful young woman with a tall, slender figure, long platinum blonde hair, blue eyes, small nose and pale skin with a light dusting of freckles, a trait she shares with her sister Anna, though less prominent. Her face is the mirror image of her mother, as during her coronation, she bore a striking resemblance to the Queen, albeit with a different hair color. In her pre-Snow Queen state, she wears a teal dress with a sweetheart bodice with bronze lacing, black sleeves and magenta cape, with dark brown shoes with gold outlines and teal stockings (which disappear after her transformation) underneath, and her hair woven in a French braided crown twist bun. Ever since the accident with Anna at age 8, Elsa wears white gloves to contain her powers, but at her coronation, she wears longer, cyan gloves that go with her outfit.

Game Appearances


Elsa along with the other Disney Princesses appear as playable fighter in STORM. She and Anna are unlocked after defeating the Snow Goblin in the Frozen Universe. Elsa has a pallet swap resembling her mother Queen Idun.

The Disney Altercation

Elsa is confirmed to be a playable fighter in the crossover fighting game, The Disney Altercation. She is one of the 120 selectable fighters ready to battle from the start. Her younger sister Anna is also a starting fighter in the game. Both sisters have been confirmed to have major roles in the game's story mode.



  • Originally, Elsa was to be the main villain of the film. But the writers felt that her song, "Let It Go", rather made her sound like a sympathetic person who was well-meaning. This ended up turning her into a heroine.
  • According to Jennifer Lee, Elsa was born on the Winter Solstice, meaning her birthday is around December 21 assuming the film takes place in the Northern Hemisphere.
