And Now For Something Completely Different

There’s Frozen Concept Art Where Elsa Is Basically Bette Midler


During her tenure as a Disney Animation artist, Claire Keane envisioned a version of Frozen‘s Snow Queen, Elsa, who was “based on Bette Midler’s showgirl stage presence.” Well… that’s… OK then. I’m not going to be able to get Bette Midler singing “Let It Go” out of my head now. Thank you for that. It’s somewhat unspeakably awesome. Keane also drew up concept art for an Elsa inspired by “Amy Winehouse’s pathos…. with a deep, soulful voice and dramatic mood swings.” A sketch of that is under the jump, and you can see more on Keane’s website.

    Yeah, I have the art book and her evolution is really interesting. Though there are a couple of these where I feel like she’s Morrigan from Dragon Age, but maybe angstier.

    Probably because I’ve been replaying DA:O, but whatev~

    How interesting would this have looked on the big screen, instead of the recycled visuals from Tangled we got instead.

    Looks like an actual “SNOW QUEEN” instead of the lukewarm teenage oatmeal we got instead…!
