Well, it’s been long enough since the movie’s come out that I feel I should do a Forgotten/Minor Characters post on Disney’s 53rd animated feature, Frozen. For a brief summary of the movie (for like the 2 of you who haven’t seen it) and my thoughts of it, check out my review here.
So I’ll just jump into my forgotten/minor character for this film: The Bishop of Arendelle. He’s definitely a minor character in the film and only appears during Elsa’s coronation ceremony.
But, my question is, why doesn’t he appear anywhere else? When Elsa runs away, Anna sets off to find her and the kingdom is left in the hands of…Hans.
During this wintery dilemma, the people are trying their best to deal with the cold and Hans is trying his best (cough…cough) to take care of the people. Now, I would think that during this time of difficulty, the citizens of Arendelle would turn to the Bishop for spiritual uplifting.
Arendelle seems to be a nation that honors its Church and I just don’t get why the Bishop isn’t around more in the film! Where is he? Maybe he’s busy doing what he can to help the people that he has no time for camera appearances.
Maybe he’s pulled a Merlin and blew his way to Bermuda to avoid the cold.
Or maybe I’m just looking too deeply into this.
In the end, choosing a forgotten/minor character from a film as popular as Frozen, proved to be quite a task. Hence, I had to choose the Bishop for this position. And it’s good because now our other forgotten/minor character priest won’t be lonely.
