Is “Love is an Open Door” actually a villain Song?

I know.  You’re reading this and going “No!  I love that song!  It’s so sweet!”

Yes, yes it is… If you are thinking about Anna’s part.

Let’s think about Hans’ lines for a moment, shall we?

Oh Grumpy Cat, how right you are this time.

Anna sings: “All my life has been a series of doors in my face/and then suddenly, I bump into you!”

Hans: “I was thinking the same thing!  Cuz’ like, I’ve been searching my whole life to find my own place.

There.

Right there.  See it?

Anna is totally talking about how she has finally found someone to love her.

Hans keeps saying the word place.  Shall we look some more?

At least he’s willing to sing and dance for the throne… I guess…

Anna: “But with you, I see your face, and it’s nothing like I’ve ever known before. Love is an open door!”

Hans: “But with you, I’ve found my place, and it’s nothing like I’ve ever known before.  Love is an open door!”

He doesn’t say anything particularly nice about Anna here, facially or otherwise.  He’s not unkind, but he just doesn’t mention her.  He’s still talking about his place.

Hans & Anna: “Say goodbye to the pain of the past!  We don’t have to feel it anymore.”

Hmm, the pain of loneliness from not finding your love, or the pain of knowing that 12 of your siblings would have to die in order for you to rule?  Hmm?  Which is it, Hans?!

Thank goodness he was thinking “sentences.”  Just in case that beginning ‘s’ slipped out, he was covered.

One last thing.  At the end they both sing “Life can be so much more with you!”  More like… being king?

To Hans, love is an open door… an open door to Arandelle’s throne room!

Really, you didn't even have to kill Anna… According to Once Upon a Time, Anna & Elsa's mother was heir to the throne, yet their father was still a king.  Hans, you selfish jerk.

***Afternote: I do love this song.  Even as a love song, it is super sweet and cute.  But the subtle hints are just wonderful little tidbits, kind of like Mother Gothel only saying “I love you most” to Rapunzel’s hair, not Rapunzel herself.***

Favorite Sidekick – 30 Day Disney Challenge: Day 7

I have to be honest, the first sidekicks I thought of are Dreamworks characters…

Because Tulio and Miguel act like the sidekicks.  It's really a serious story about the horse's journey.

Oops.

But I do have a favorite Disney sidekick duo, too!  So without further ado… Continue reading “Favorite Sidekick – 30 Day Disney Challenge: Day 7”
