Disney's New Frozen Book Sounds Like Gone Girl On Ice

Frozen is branching out its extended universe and releasing a book based on the relationship of Hans and Anna, and it's going to be told from each character's point of view. So basically, it's reverse Gone Girl.

Spoilers for Frozen and Gone Girl ahead!

According to Stitch Kingdom, Disney's new Frozen spinoff book is titled The Frozen Heart. The book will be about manipulation, love, lies, trickery, and attempted murder in Arendelle. It's the story of Anna and Hans — no, not the man Anna falls in love with in the end (Kristoff) but the Prince who tricks her into loving her and then tries to kill her. Fun! Each chapter will flip from Hans to Anna's point of view. I'm sorry, but this is so much reverse Gone Girl it's hilarious. Here's the premise:

Love is an open door. Or so Anna believed when she first met a handsome prince name Hans. A Frozen Heart tells the story of a lonely young woman who has been shut away from the world for most of her life. Her parents are dead, and her sister-the only person who might show her an ounce of love-is cold and distant. No wonder she jumps at the chance for love and companionship with a dashing stranger. But as Hans' veneer of kindness melts away, Anna finds the love she was searching for all along from her sister Elsa. Told in alternating chapters from both Anna's and Hans' perspectives, A Frozen Heart delves into the couple's failed romance, exploring their backstories, motivations, and ultimate separation.


Okay, now let's break it down, Gone Girl-style, like Anna is Nick and Hans is Amy. Spoilers!

Anna, a gorgeous, silly "aw shucks" character who is imprisoned in her home due to the death of her parents. She meets the mysterious, too-good-to-be-true Prince Hans. Hans then transforms himself to get Anna to fall in love with him (he "cool girls" himself) and it works. Anna falls for Hans. But it's really all a trap and Hans just wants to frame Anna's sister Elsa for the murder of Anna, kill Anna, and then take over the throne. There he will become beloved, famous, and rich. The people of Arendelle will love him for saving them all from the evils of Elsa. That's a pretty elaborate and also totally insane plan. But hell, it almost works. Much like Amy's very elaborate and insane plan to frame Nick, regain her fame (this wan't her original intention but she liked the limelight) and teach her husband a lesson for being an overall shit person. I should point out that while Anna is engaged to the nefarious Hans, she totally falls for Kristoff, which is like the Disney version of Nick's affair in the book. Just sayin'.
