Today is the last day in Hamlette's I ❤ Austen Week!! It has been so much fun!! Really, go check out everyone Else's posts, they are lovely!
I am back to today for a really weird comparison, Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility vs. Frozen. It was my sister who first pointed out how similar they are, and since then I have been on the look out for similarities, and there are quite a few! I wanted to share them all with you!
SPOILER ALERT!!!!!! If you have not seen the movie Frozen AND seen Sense and Sensibility 1995 or read Sense and Sensibility, DO, NOT, READ, THIS!!! This is a comparison post with every detail and Frozen and Sense and Sensibility have such cool (no pun intended) surprises that I do not want them to be spoiled for you if you read this.
Sense and Sensibility
1. The basics.
The stories are mainly about two sisters. Both fathers die.
Well, the first obvious similarity about them is their names. Elinor, Elsa, they both start with El.
They also both try to hide their feelings (at least at the beginnings), they don't want ANYONE to see what they are feeling.
Once again their names are the first thing you think about. They don't have a lot of sense. I mean, sure he saved you, but that doesn't mean you are instantly in love. See points 4 and 5 for their love interests.
Now, they both abandoned the second sister. They did it for different reasons, but they did it all the same!!! They both save the sisters to get their love.
They both have some good times together, but they still did it.
5. Colonel Brandon
Look at THEM! They are twins!!! They both love the second sister, and they both get her in the end. They both save her at one point.
Can you see why I'm doing this post yet?
(Also, really weird note that Kristoff is the only main character in Frozen who doesn't have a four letter name.)
6. Mrs. Jennings
They both try to get 3 and 5 together.
Well, there you have it. Did I miss any similarites?
I am going to put this header here to thank my little sister for making it!
Thank you so much for hosting this fun week Hamlette!!!!
