Move over Elsa, Anna is the Disney princess we’ve all been waiting for

Disclaimer: This article contains spoilers from Frozen 2. 

Since Frozen 2 premiered in cinemas, the film has garnered “$350.2 million worldwide” on its opening week with an additional  “$132.7 million” over the Thanksgiving holidays according to reports.  And who can blame Disney fans for rushing to the movie theaters to watch the highly-anticipated sequel? The new Frozen film offers a fresh perspective to Anna and Elsa’s dynamic and brings to light the individual strength of both sisters.

Throughout the events of Frozen 2, viewers witnessed how much Elsa’s power grew since the first film. This time around, the Queen of Arendelle is able to give Olaf permafrost, conjure memories from water, and even create an ice barrier big enough to protect her whole kingdom from a huge tidal wave.

Though Elsa’s powers are amazing, we can’t help but applaud the actions of her “powerless” sister Anna. In fact, we think she’s actually much more admirable than her power-wielding sister. Here are a few reasons why Anna deserves more recognition from Frozen fans:

She’s responsible

In the first Frozen film, Anna was naive and impulsive. But in the sequel, she showed growth and responsibility–often becoming the “voice of reason” when Elsa decides to go too far.

It’s her sense of responsibility and her practical “can do” attitude that makes her the perfect role model for kids who have yet to understand the difference between what can be done and what should be done.

She’s relatable and unafraid to be herself

Ever since the first Frozen movie, Anna has always been in tune with her quirkiness. Whether that’d be the awkward way she sleeps or her intense approach to charades, Anna has always been so endearing in the way that she’s unafraid to be herself.

This is a trait that most kids can admire and emulate from Anna–and one that can empower them to continue staying true to themselves.

She’s her own person–even with Kristoff

Many times, young girls have the tendency to lose themselves when they’re in a relationship. Anna, however, proves that women can be in positive and healthy relationships without compromising their ideals and personalities.

Plus, we’ve got to give Kristoff props on this, as he makes the other half of this Disney power couple.

She’s strong even without powers

Anna proves that her power doesn’t come from supernatural entities or elements, it comes from within. This is particularly evident in the song “The Next Right Thing”–wherein Anna pulls herself up and gathers the courage to move forward without the help of her sister and Olaf.

This emphasizes the idea that with or without powers, one person can do the right thing and be the hero or heroine of his or her own story.
