Once Upon a Time

In the last minute of Season 3's finale of Once Upon a Time, it was revealed that Emma Swan and Captain Hook brought back with them to present a vessel from the past to the present. Once there, the vessel broke open and released Elsa into Storybrooke[1]. In July 2014, it was announced the actresses Georgina Haig will be Elsa[2], Elizabeth Lail will be Anna, and Scott Michael Foster will be Kristoff[3]. Elsa and Anna's parents, Sven, Marshmallow, Grand Pabbie the Troll King, and Hans have appeared in series.


Frozen's fandom immediately took off after the release of the film. The fandom is still rapidly growing and mainly focused on Tumblr, Deviantart, Archive of Our Own and FFN.

Crossovers with Rise of the Guardians and the Big Four are popular, especially with RotG's character Jack Frost with Elsa is very popular especially on Tumblr due to their similar powers.


The het Anna/Kristoff ship and femslash incest Anna/Elsa took off immediately after the film's release, as did others but these two pairings seem to be the most popular pairings. The pairings Hans/Anna, Elsa/Kristoff and Hans/Elsa are also common pairings for the fandom. The slash pairing of Kristoff/Hans is fairly rare but exists.

Crossover pairings are popular, especially Elsa/Jack Frost.
