(Source) – Disney’s Frozen has been one of the company’s greatest non-Pixar successes in years — pulling in $1.2 billion worldwide in its theatrical release alone. But now Disney could lose a chunk of those profits. Frozen is being sued for $250 million by Peruvian author Isabella Tanikumi for plagiarism, reported TMZ. Frozen is, like The Little Mermaid before it, an adaptation of a Hans Christian Anderson story — The Snow Queen. With Disney doing an upfront take of the classic tale, it seems unlikely that they’d add a touching autobiography of a Peruvian woman like Tanikumi growing up in the Andes as inspiration. Isabella’s autobiography, released in 2010, recounts the author’s hardships that eventually led to the death of her younger sister — the obvious parallel to Frozen.
Coming from an Uncle that has seen this shit flick no less than a billion times, it probably would’ve been a better idea to try to rip off a movie that’s a little more, I don’t know, fucking realistic. A non-animated film would be a good starting point. Are there talking snowmen in the slums of Peru? Because if Isabella can’t shoot ice from her tits to make colossal frozen fortresses then it’s an open and shut case. But there’s a small part of me that wants her to cash in on the case and start a strong precedent for these movie claims. After that it’s no holds barred on Hollywood and I’m coming in HARD for some Lego Movie royalties. Poor baby sis needs that jaw surgery before the next full moon and her gravitational pull kills us all. A death not seen since Majora’s Mask.
