“Love conquers all…
The original inspiration to the box office hit of “Frozen”, The Snow Queen follows Gerda on her quest to save her best friend Kai.
Once upon a time, an evil troll created a magic mirror that shattered into millions of tiny shards. These shards contained the power to change a person’s heart from one that is loving and kind, to one that is mean and cruel. They floated freely through the air and entered people’s eyes and eventually pierced their hearts.
In a small village, Gerda and Kai listen attentively to Gerda’s Grandma as she tells them the story of the Snow Queen. As they listen, Kai looks out the window and is suddenly pierced with a shard of evil mirror. It transforms him immediately into a cruel little boy and he no longer wants to be friends with Gerda and loses interest in village life.
When the Snow Queen takes Kai, Gerda decides to go on a journey to save her best friend. On her journey, she meets many mentors that help her in her quest; a group of silly birds, Garden Woman and her flowers, Lily and Hyacinth, Mr. and Mrs. Crow, the Prince and the Princess, the Robber Girl and her gang of robbers, the Lapp Woman and Reindeer. After many challenges and temptations, Gerda finally makes her way to the Snow Queen’s palace. She finds Kai in the palace but Kai does not recognize his best friend. He is under a spell. Gerda’s love eventually overcomes the Snow Queen’s spell, thaws Kai’s heart and her tears wash away the evil shards of mirror that have pierced his eyes. Kai finally comes out of his trance and remembers not only Gerda but his original nature as well.
