"When people make a big deal about Anna looking too much like Rapunzel I get angry, Rapunzel and Anna are two completely different characters, they may look alike but they have different stories, I don’t want to be looking at Anna as Rapunzel, it’ll just shatter the magic of the movie."
The notion that the two characters are supposed to be perceived as the same construct in terms of personality traits and emotional/psychological conflicts due to objectively evident and undeniable similarities in visual design as well as either being ~ blonde and Disney - similarly to anime and a fair ton of other artistic/media dimensions that don’t get half the flack for that if any at all - choosing to reuse certain external models of character appearance is inherently absurd and irrational. Admittedly, it is not pertaining to global multimillion company striving to avoid or limit significant financial investments (which is the inherently incorrect of an assumption to begin with given the profoundness of the budget in case with either Frozen or Tangled) or time consuming creative process (seeing as Tangled, for instance, was 6 years in making) but rather related to distinct art style a private media company is well within it’s right to maintain. We as consumers have an non-exclusive entitlement to either refrain from supporting a product by not acquiring movie tickets and merchandise or consider Disney’s choices regarding their approach towards character design controversial and dissatisfying but the facts remain and neither the lack of founding nor the presumed insufficiency of effort and focus are the case since CGI department is in a stage of intense development with the animators consistently building it up, inventing new softwares that provides more opportunities concerning the structuring and rendering of landscapes, clothing, hair and a rich variety of facial expressions. Irrespective of the subjective outlook on the striking resemblance between Anna and Rapunzel chunks of the audience might have Disney is stylizing it’s characters in a specific manner deliberately and because they have every right to do it.
Personality wise, if a female protagonist doesn’t fit a certain designed mold of ~ strong! independent! and liberated! she is not allowed to share traits with other female heroines without them being automatically labeled as identical in every way. Women are not allowed to be “merely” nice, creative, optimistic and persistent while simultaneously being desirable and likeable thus forming connections with people and having love interests for they are going to be instantly lumped together, stereotyped and deemed as “Mary Sues”. Rapunzel can hardly get a credit for her remarkable endurance as abuse survivor and Anna is unlikely to be praised for her exceptional loyalty and devotion to mending the bonds with her sister (nevermind the fact that Merida’s entire storyline ultimately revolved around restoring a broken verbal connection with her mother - after her attempt to brainwash said mother inorganically via magic entailed an unpredictable consequence - and reforming their relationship, she IS allowed to have an emotionally challenging arc based on inner struggles due to possessing a number of obligatory qualities establishing her as a universally acknowledged - mostly by the First World - trope of a “strong female character”. To place a necessary disclaimer here I love Merida but that’s not the point now).
It takes a fictional OR real female to match a vague criteria of “worthwhile and appropriate” for her inexplicable ability to draw infinite flows of suitors, get acknowledged in a friendly/platonic manner, explicitly demonstrate and showcase her feelings or be rewarded with romantic attention and gestures to not be condemned or looked down upon because women/female characters who don’t represent that concept are essentially regarded as undeserving of being enjoyable/attractive just like that, loved for no reason and are obligated to prove the legitimacy of their very existence. Now THAT is problematic and harmful of a mentality to perpetuate whereas the admitted similarities between Rapunzel and Anna are nothing more or less than animation style.
The cold never bothered me anyway.
