Origins and conception[ edit ] An illustration of Gerda, the character Anna is based upon. Attempts to produce an adaption of " The Snow Queen " in the Disney studio dated back to , when Walt Disney considered collaborating with Samuel Goldwyn to produce a biography film of Hans Christian Andersen. However, the story and particularly the Snow Queen character proved to be too problematic to Disney and his animators.

Most obviously, Andersen's version did not feature any confrontation between them: There just was not enough character conflict to form a full-length feature.
