"An act of true love will thaw a frozen heart" -Olaf
Although Jesus isn't mentioned within the story, the gospel is clearly represented. Elsa is incapable of helping herself and fixing her problems. She wounds her sister emotionally and physically. Yet because of the sacrificial love of another, her heart is changed.
Elsa's song "Let it Go"
Lyrics: “Turn away and slam the door/I don’t care what they’re going to say/Let the storm rage on/The cold never bothered me anyway.” "That perfect girl is gone"
These words illustrate the complete opposite of how Christianity is supposed to be.
This attitude that Elsa has is hardening to one's heart. She is doing what she thinks is best for her, and completely disregarding her family who is trying to help.
This represents selfishness.
Led by emotions

Who am i? Where am i?
What went wrong?
WHAT'S THE SOLUTION?
I'm Queen Elsa and I am in the kingdom of Arendelle.
I lost control of my magical powers and hurt my sister, Anna.
An act of true love.
Elsa was trying to figure out how to control her powers on her own, but what she really needed was an act of true love.
This is exactly what happens to us as sinners. When we become a Christian, we turn our lives over to an act of true love (Jesus).
Jesus sacrificed His life for us just like Anna sacrificed her life for Elsa's.
If I were communicating with a nonbeliever about this film, and at the same time trying to share the gospel with them, I don't think it would be too difficult to explain. This film clearly shows the story of Jesus.
I would explain how Anna sacrificing her life for Elsa parallels to what Christ did for us.
I would also tell he/she that giving your life over to Christ would make life a lot simpler and decrease your anxieties. (Love was the answer to controlling Elsa's powers)
