"Alfons Maria Mucha (Ivančice, 24 July 1860 – Prague, 14 July 1939), often known in English and French as Alphonse Mucha, was a Czech Art Nouveau painter and decorative artist, known best for his distinct style. He produced many paintings, illustrations, advertisements, postcards, and designs."
Elsa is the Snow Queen; she could easily be perceived as a villain, but that’s not who she is. She’s extremely complicated and misunderstood. She actually banishes herself from her home to avoid hurting others, and in return, she finds the liberation to celebrate who she is.
With the female empowerment, what I take from the character for myself, and where Elsa and I meet, is wrestling with being a strong, powerful, extraordinary woman. Also, we worry about having to hide that, in fear of hurting other people. I understand and relate to that. I think as women, the smarter and more powerful we are, the more it can be threatening and alienating to other people, more than with men. That’s something we need to support each other with.
I thought about it a lot when I was younger, more than I do now. Now I celebrate who I am, and what I’m doing. When I was younger, I never wanted my friends to think I was showing off. That’s why I think it’s great for kids to see this movie. Everything’s always about being homogenized, and following in a group. The people who stand out always have the most problems. So the more we have those messages out here about the people who are struggling with something, or are different or gifted, as well as the opportunity to give them a platform to celebrate that, is the stronger way to go.

“When the Japanese repair broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that when something has suffered damage and has a history, it becomes more beautiful.”
"Kintsugi" it’s called, in case you didn’t know and were wondering.
