With reviews divided by 67% approval on Rotten Tomatoes, James Wan | just released Malignant in rooms. For the North American public, the tape also arrived through the platform HBO Max, but in Latin America they will have to wait for the window of around 45 days to expire. In a recent interview, the director made a strange comparison between his film and one of the most celebrated animated feature films of Disney.
In an interview with Comicbook, James Wan | referred to the connection that exists between Frozen and Malignant. As the explanation has some spoilers for the film that has just been released, we recommend that you continue reading only if you were able to enjoy the launch. The director spoke of one of the most important plot twists, which are revealed towards the end of the film’s journey.
The comparison that Van made between Malignant and Frozen had as its axis the sisters who star in the story, Madison (Annabelle Wallis) and Sydney (Maddie Hasson). “You have a history between Madison and his blood brother, who was Gabriel, who turns out to be a horrible person. But his adoptive sister, with whom he has no blood connection, is the one with whom he has the greatest connection, the one who is the most affectionate “, asserted the director. Thus, he explained that with his co-writer, Ingrid Mute they talked about the relationship between Anna and Elsa on Frozen.
“A Ingrid he loved the idea of telling a love story, but it is not a love story between two protagonists. It is a love story between two sisters. And I love it”, assured Van. In this context, he highlighted: “I hadn’t seen that in a horror movie, at least at this level. And it’s funny, because we jokingly referred to this as the horror version of Frozen”. The director also highlighted the idea that the message of the film has to do with the fact that the person someone feels closest to does not necessarily have to be someone with whom they have a blood tie.
The other Disney movie connected to Frozen
It seems that Frozen it is a film destined to be connected to different films. It is not the first time that the 2013 film has been compared to another feature film. For years, fans believed that the protagonists of Frozen they were sisters of Tarzan, and this had to do with the beginning of both films, which included a shipwreck. The theory had such an impact that even the director of both films, Chris Buck, answered them in an interview with MTV.
“Whatever people want to believe, go ahead. That is the spirit of Disney”, said the director, who explained that he told Jen Lee, co – director of Frozen, that “the parents of Anna and Elsa they did not die. Yes, there was a shipwreck, but they were at sea a little more than we thought because the mother was pregnant, and she gave birth to a small child on the boat. They are shipwrecked far away from Scandinavian waters. They end up in the jungle, building a tree house and a leopard kills them, so their baby is raised by gorillas. “. The bad news for those who defend this theory is that Frozen 2 debunks this version, since it shows that the shipwreck occurred in another part of the world, and that the parents of Anna and Elsa they did indeed die.
