The first Snow Queen story by the Russian animated studio Wizart came into being in 2012. Now, in four years after the first premiere, we can see colossal evolution of the Russian animation. The graphics and the characters clean-up have improved – now we see brighter colors, more interesting costumes, and more scenic locations. Of course, there is nothing left of the initial story of Kai and Gerda, children living next door to one another, from Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale. The teenagers from the new story have grown up, acquired more difficult tempers, lost their parents, but gained a huge experience in the show business. Then, as one would expect, the brother's and the sister's paths separated. She, like any girl, chose to follow her heart as well as the new guy called Rollan, whereas Kai became an animated downshifter – a pirate artist. Both the family division and excessive curiosity placed the whole Troll Country under a threat. It is worth mentioning that the participation of the Hollywood screenwriter Robert Lence and the Comedy Club show stars turned out very useful – the movie became funnier but sometimes, like in all Russian masterpieces, this went a little bit too far. It should also be pointed out that the Russian animation is becoming interesting abroad too: releases in Korea, Bulgaria, Turkey and countries of the Middle East are planned for the beginning of 2017. I would like to wish successful distribution to The Snow Queen and a great enjoyable time watching the movie – to the audience.
