Who doesn’t want to live as Elsa?
Frozen is one of the biggest hits that Disney has recently released. It made a profit of $1.2 billion, with only a mere $150 million budget. If you haven’t watched the acclaimed movie already, it’s about a girl named Elsa and her sister Anna, who grew up as princesses in the fictional city of Arendelle. It is supposed to be based off Hans Christian Anderson’s fairy tale The Snow Queen. The whole tale is a fantastical tale about how Elsa escapes and Anna goes on an adventure to try and get her back, or else Arendelle will be stuck in an eternal winter. (no spoilers here. If you haven’t already, and want to watch the movie, you can watch it on Netflix.)
Frozen’s official trailer:
According to TMZ, Isabella Tanikumi, author of Yearnings of the Heart, wrote an autobiography that she says was stolen by Disney. Apparently, Frozen wasn’t based off The Snow Queen, but based off Isabella’s life story instead. According to the description of her book found on Amazon,
[quote_box_center]This is a compelling, introspective account of the life of Isabella TaniKumi, who takes her readers on a journey through various phases of her remarkable life- from her family’s survival during the devastating earthquake of 1970 in Huaraz, Peru, to the trials of overcoming heartbreaks of her youth. Conquering personal insecurities led to exploring the reaches of her intellect while facing the tragic, and untimely death of her beloved sister, Laura.
Despite language barriers and the consequent obstacles of fitting in, Tanikumi wittily narrates her struggles with her assimilation into American life and culture. Forging many enduring friendships most notably with Julie, who rescued her from the depths of grief. Tanikumi also interweaves a dialogue with her long lost love Eduardo. This novel tacitily and expressly addresses Eduardo as a salient recipient of her reflections. Ultimately, Tanikumi is able to share her gratitude and joy as well as her insatiable thirst for life.[/quote_box_center]
She obviously stands by her convictions, since she is suing Disney $250 million for plagiarizing her work and not crediting her.
Is this just a PR stunt or is she for real? We’re wondering how lawsuits like these exist. We’ve heard of some pretty weird ones, like how a woman sued Walmart because of a 2 cent discrepancy, but we’re wondering if this woman actually believes her case is justified. She is obviously not getting the press she wants though, seeing how her Amazon score dropped to 2 stars.
We’re guessing it will be dismissed before it gets to court… but really?
Let’s just say that we don’t think this lawsuit will be any part of Frozen 2.
What do you think of this woman’s lawsuit?
