Does Disney’s ‘Frozen’ pay homage to ‘Watchmen’?

watchmen-let it go

While Adele Dazeem’s Idina Menzel’s performance of “Let It Go” from Frozen is inescapable (and downright catchy), I’d somehow missed widespread speculation that the big scene from Disney’s latest animated blockbuster is an elaborate homage to the Mars sequence from Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.

It’s already inspired some mashups, but now Slate’s Forrest Wickman draws our attention to one that may just erase any doubts, ending the debate once and for all (or, y’know, not): Alex Wolinetz‘s combination of the song’s lyrics with Gibbons’ panels depicting a self-exiled Doctor Manhattan. (You can see the rest of the mashup at Slate.com.)

I LAUGH HARDER THAN I’M SUPPOSE TOOOO!!!!

Could have used more of the Antarctic sequence, I think.

Some of the shots are perfect, and some are bafflingly out of sync with the music — in some cases such a mismatch they have to be intentional (the night shot against the “in the light of day” lyric).

The real takeaway is: dammit, and here I’d just gotten that song out of my head.
