No right, no wrong, no rules for me. I’m free!
I love this scene so much. Not only are the vocals and music amazing, but the animation too. You really got how confident she feels. Elsa always had this looming anxiety because of her powers, and she always had to hide them, because she feared what everyone would say and think. When she is finally able to be herself and accept herself, she is visually so much happier. You can feel how overjoyed she is to finally be able to “let go” of all of her worries, through her voice, through her expressions, and through everything she does.
Best scene in the film :-)
There’s a wonderful Rooney moment coming up where she tells him that she understands exactly what is asked of her and she’s already committed it all to memory. And I love the way she just points at her head for a second like, “I got that.” And then when he insists that she take these papers, instead of resisting him anymore, she just takes them and then drops them on the nearest chair. [laughs] She did that to me, like, once or twice a day. -David Fincher (TGWTDT audio commentary)
