Film Theory: How To FREEZE Elsa! (Disney Frozen 2)

Feb 27, 2020
So Punk, where is Queen Elsa? You were the last ice block she made, so now it's time to talk Playing nice, huh? Well, we have ways to make you sweat. Ha now you are feeling the heat so I ask you again where is Elsa? That she said, ah Nothing is water, she has no memory or voice or sincerely nothing to help us solve this case. It's literally just water. Hello internet welcome to movie

where it's January and that means it's time to YouTube and chill since it's too hot in Southern California to build a snowman whether I like it or not I have to find other ways to celebrate this time of year So I'm producing a sequel to my own Un

history in case you're wondering yes there will be spoilers so if you don't want to hear the ending you don't want to put this video on ice and go watch the movie already or in other words go and finish Now despite the opening of this video, I'm not actually going to talk about the big theme of this movie, which is water that has memories. That's actually a

No, instead of today. They're actually going back to

to address Elsa's famous adage. I don't know if you've heard this guys, but the cold never bothered you anyway. one of our most famous lines from the most famous song in the movie Elsa lets us all know that part of her power is that she is immune to how cold her ice castle is, not only that, but she walks in the snow and she has a dress with a very cold looking neckline but it doesn't seem to matter because none of it can affect her she seems like a very clearly defined power set.

I can respect that and then he fast forwards frozen to where? They throw it all out the window in Frozen: We have this massive climactic moment near the end of the movie, where we see Elsa

. Arctic Ocean and walking in this permafrost forest for days in a jacket That's perfect for your next trip to Walt Disney Land, by the way, and when we see her defeated it's freezing her today Ah, not just a cheeky rip off of the climax of the last movie where honor froze to death? But it just doesn't make sense. The cold doesn't bother her, so you know what the question is for a theorist who watches this movie today.
film theory how to freeze elsa disney frozen 2
Well, there are so many questions, but the question I want to ask today is that cold. Does it have to be to clearly annoy Elsa? She's not immune to freezing. So at what temperature does she

freeze

at what's actually happening in the scene? Where is the temperature that we get nice? Elsa cold now in case you haven't fed the beast of the Disney sequel machine or your memory of this movie is blurry or you left after the words North old run at to Holland which we repeat like 47 times in this movie for four-years he also ends up in this cold little situation after embarking on a quest at the behest of Well, almost nothing, some spirits that whisper something or something and almost kill his entire kingdom, but they are not the same spirits that are trapped in the misty wood?
It's super confusing, really inconsistent, and not that well written. It's okay, I just have to get that off my chest. Regardless, she travels north to claim her place as the ultimate ice queen. She dumps her sister, who clearly has PTSD from the last movie and is angry at being left alone on this trip. hybrid mermaid horse to the north country and forgets about Kristoff along with the rest of the cast and crew of this

film

who is left alone to sing an '80s inspired power ballad the real theory here is if Disney knew how bad it was made this movie but i don't really need to start with that long short story, what you need to know for this theory is that at the end of the movie Elsa finds herself in the North Country and in a dark mysterious ice cave of self discovery.
She falls from a great distance into him. That is all. Eventually, she freezes. She is thawed by the power of who cares about her. Let's assume, for the sake of this theory, that they were trying to make a movie with cohesion and logical direction. actual scientist? Explanation here or someone just relied on too much Disney magic if we're trying to figure out how spooky it must be for Elsa to freeze. We need to get perspective on the temperatures we're dealing with throughout these movies. We know that Elsa has no problem surviving the cold in the movies.
Two main scenarios. Arendelle and the northern woods, as well as most of the time she spends in the northern sea in Holland. How cold are these places, and how much colder is it when Elsa actually ends up freezing? Arendelle, as you may already know, is a cross between Aaron Dahl and Bergen, Norway. Aaron Dahl for its namesake and Bergen for its architecture and landscape. We talked about this in our previous little frozen theory about the fact that Anna and Elsa shouldn't be biological sisters. which in case you're interested you can catch up here if you missed it since that theory

disney

posted more information about Arendelle including a map shown in frozen fever which we can then cross over with the geography of norway since the only real feature here is the forked river.
I searched for similar geographic areas in Norway and found Alisoun, an area that lined up almost perfectly on a small map. Manipulation of historical ups and downs for Alice hurt in the fall. twelve point two degrees Celsius or 46 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit Which gives us our parallels with Arendelle Interestingly enough Alice doesn't get very cold early on Even in the winter the ups and downs tend to hover just above freezing which means the Elsa's winter wonderland and frozen would have been much colder than the geographic norm, plus we know the ancient roof of the north. The Enchanted Forest is a day or two by wagon from Arendelle.
So it's likely that we're seeing the same temperature averages there as well, with maybe a degree or two difference. None of the people who live there appear to be passing out from frostbite. she can just survive there like everyone else. So with those two out of the way, we can focus on the

film

's northernmost locations, the North Sea and Holland, as Elsa travels north again after abandoning her sister in the middle of nowhere We reach a point where, according to the map of the frozen fever, she meets the north of Sooey, which now means North Sea in Danish.
The closest body of water to northern Norway on a real world map is the Norwegian Sea. Interestingly, the Norwegian Sea's name roughly translates to North Sea So it's a fair substitute, a little research will tell you that the Norwegian view, especially the near-shore areas we're dealing with, tops out at about 5.9 degrees Celsius or 40 point 8 degrees Fahrenheit, which is not exactly the best temperature for surfing, yearly lows of 1.3 degrees Celsius or 36 point two degrees Fahrenheit are reported, so the waters are barely above the point of freezing. This makes it very cold water and easy enough to kill a normal person in a matter of minutes.
The ability of operating systems to survive in cold water is perhaps more impressive than our ability to survive in frozen castles on dry land. what is known as a cold shock response Which is the same response you get if your shower suddenly gets cold, you gasp in surprise as a reflex part of the response But if you are in a freezing ocean the gas forces the water into your lungs your limbs suddenly dazed by the shock of cold and suffocated almost immediately. That's not scary enough or you managed to avoid the cold shock response. You're not in a good place yet Even if you're in control of your body to begin with, you lose control of your extremities in about ten minutes in 50-degree water or below in hypothermia Your core body temperature drops below 95 degrees in less than an hour, even in the best possible conditions.
So for Elsa to survive even minutes in the waters of the North Sea, she would have had to have been wearing the equivalent of several water immersion survival seats, these big old things. they look like rubber This means in water where other people are literally paralyzed and where body temperatures would drop below survivability in a matter of minutes. Elsa maintains a normal internal body temperature and ice surfs with the best of them. It's amazing, but that doesn't freeze her. location to consider. Dr. Holland is Heinlein's glacier he also rides, and what appears to be minutes away from North Old Rock, well I initially wanted to say this was meant to be Iceland as the Frozen crew visited Iceland for inspiration for a geographic film.
It's too far north. Honestly, the nearest coast to Iceland is about 900 miles from Hollis Food or anywhere along the Norwegian coast, which would take a horse, even a magical water horse, about 40 hours of straight running at top speed without rest. our most realistic movie journey. I chose the small I can't pronounce those letters island just off the north coast of Norway. There are also possibilities like Bear Island up here. But you know, they all basically work the same way, so just include them all as potential otto holland understudies, funnily enough. All of these types of islands tend to experience freezing temperatures at least nine months of the year.
Which means that when Elsa probably lands in the hot Netherlands, the temperature will cause the water to freeze right on her skin. Immediately, she will face the ocean winds which will give her a wind chill effect that will make it feel even colder to her, starting at minus five degrees Celsius, her average temperature for unpronounceable. Norwegian Island in November We can estimate wind chills of 10 to 30 miles per hour or 16 to 48 km/h with these winds Elsa's feeling temperature will be about minus 10 degrees Celsius minus 15 degrees Celsius OR 12 degrees Fahrenheit to 5 degrees Fahrenheit, even then there isn't even a chill, as far as we know even at temperatures significantly below freezing.
It's still not cold enough to bother me, so geez, how cold does it have to be for it to seem like an investigative dead end, since we can't even guess the temperature in the magical cave it's in. heck inside the cave, it should probably be warmer because she's not subject to being wet in the wind which said who is one thing we can still speculate about Elsa herself. What if instead of looking at the air around her, the water she's impossibly swimming through all of that stuff? What if we stop comparing her to the way humans freeze and stop assuming she's human instead of assuming her body works like a normal person's body.
It might make more sense to assume she works like the item that she associates with ice Let's take a look at the moment when Elsa freezes again. We see her jump into the ice chasm to follow her past. She falls for a couple of seconds and we see her make a quick landing on her hands and fingertips so a moment later, she hears the truth about what terrible imperialists her people were. seeing her start to freeze again at the tips of her fingers and toes where she landed interestingly may be the only scientifically accurate part of this movie Elsa is freezing like ice to better explain what I mean here and what is really happening to Elsa and how her body works.
I'll have to change it to live action. Hey movie theorists, it might not look like it because you have less hair up here, more hair down here, but don't worry. That's what happens when you do a charity livestream and put your Hair on the line. I'll be back to my old self in t-minus three months. Who knows. Anyway, let's do some real world science. Are we going back to high school? Because you know that this is not content aimed at children, you are only 13 and over here on this channel. You may have done a little experiment in the realm of super cool by now.
There are plenty of YouTube videos on this, but it's just trying to license them. Because they are expensive and doing science myself is really fun and cool. Supercooling is just one of those really nerdy things anyway. It's fascinating to talk about and even more fascinating to see in person and frankly I just want to try it out here as I have the ability and the people to film myself doing this kind of thing. So why not take advantage of that? This is also one of those rare things on YouTube that you can actually do yourself. It might take a couple of times to get it right, but the idea is to chill a bottle of water.
I'm going to get the bottle of water. I'm going to take off my mic and then searchthe bottle. Chris goes to get the bottle of water. Thanks, Chris Let's hope it's very cold and ready to be crystallized now. The things they got here is that first and foremost, the water must be clean and it must be left. temperatures after a couple of hours But it still has a magical area where it stays in a liquid state because it doesn't have what's called a seed crystal Just a couple of crystal structures in the water that ice can form on now There's a lot of complicated math that goes through seed crystals, but for our purposes we're going to think of frozen Elsa as our little water bottle here probably could have cut out a face and pasted it here, right? little action figure of adele dazeem here She looks human but in the movie because she represents the ice element on a molecular level Her body actually behaves more like frozen water than a person now when Elsa falls into that ice cave and hits The down below suddenly we see her entire body crystallize into an Elsa popsicle like we should see with this experiment done Dan done Chris It's going to land right here, ready?
Three two one And you see you see it that goes that goes what you're seeing here is water molecules all of a sudden colliding with each other a little seed crystal on top and all the water molecules colliding with it and Glomming into crystallizing into that the structure continues to the bottom of the bottle until now we have mostly ice with a little bit of water left over how much? Not much Okay, a little more than I expected But you can see that as soon as there was a big impact on that bottle Disrupting the super cold water inside it, everything crystallized from top to bottom now this happened because when the bottle fell on the table, it sent a shock wave through the liquid.
He literally forced the water molecules to randomly collide with each other. That extra movement eventually results in the water molecules forming something resembling the crystalline structure of ice. Once that happens, the water suddenly. you have the seed crystals you need and now more water molecules quickly collide with that seed crystal and line up in the proper structure locking up and freezing almost instantly in the case of Elsa in Frozen 2 we see the crystallization or nucleation process as it begins in cold from her right extremities, her feet, and her fingertips where she landed on the ground, but if we were really being scientifically accurate, I'd act Ally started from the top of her head because that's the end of the shock wave she experienced falling that he said this experiment still provides the best explanation we have for how an ice queen could freeze to death.
She is not a human who controls ice. on a molecular level She is actually ice herself in a very roundabout way. This explanation also helps us understand why Elsa is impervious to cold weather. The cold air, hell, even the brutal chills. . Which means they're not cooling it. She's the one that's chilling them. It's science. She's frozen and super cool, literally and figuratively. It's fascinating to even understand that another person's body functions like a supercooled liquid. She still doesn't give us a real idea of ​​our molecular temperature according to a 2018 study at the University of Frankfurt in Germany.
The supercooled water could reach temperatures of negative 42 point 5 5 degrees Celsius or negative 44 degrees Fahrenheit, which means that Elsa has the potential to reach a massive range of temperatures that would allow her to not only survive in the harshest conditions on earth, but even survive in some places on icy planets. like mars and all this actually makes sense in the context of the movie or as intricate as the lore of it is how giants on earth are made of rock. The wind spirit literally only has wind and the water horse water just ignores that cute little fire lizard Elsa is made up of the element she controls if she really is the fifth elemental creature which honestly she shouldn't be because ice is not an element. that's different from the water horse there, but still, if ice really is a different element in this world, the fact that it's supercooled and only freezes from a landing that hits hard makes a lot of sense, so in an ironic twist, Elsa really is impervious to the cold as long as you don't get hit too hard by anything for future reference to all the villains in the inevitable Frozen 3.
Keep all the swords, guns, flamethrowers or whatever and just hit her to Elsa a good swamp with a frying pan. Tangled Style Organ: A particularly aggressive pillow fight. And frankly, don't tell anyone. I warned you. Because if you are a regular viewer of this channel, you will know that Mickey Mouse and I already have a chill. and relationship. But hey, that's just a theory. This island I can't pronounce nor can I find any pronunciation guide online because it's really hard to find pronunciations for very small areas. Can I say for a regrettable cut to cut the video?
Oh, your trip logs on YouTube right now, why don't you talk on them? There are so many Norwegian travel logs that I have clicked on while searching for this video hoping someone will teach me how to pronounce the names of these places and they are all just clips set to music with moderate amounts of text on top. no help please teach me how to pronounce these places not even Wikipedia as a pronunciation guide for this sore Fuglie Ola. I mean look at these lyrics. What am I supposed to do with this? It is a zero It is an O that has been crossed that is like a no.
No, thanks. Oh, this is an old O pronunciation and geez. Could you even put a G in there? Can you upload videos of yourself? Pronouncing sore fug Lua and then linking them to me on Twitter matpat GT or on the Game Theorist subreddit And I'll try to make a greatest hits compilation of all of them. We'll make a post in the community tab or something. That would be great, please teach me how to pronounce or cut Foglia
