I didn’t realize how much Jessica Jones is like Frozen until watching the final scene of the new Netflix series.
Without giving it away, the sisters on Jessica Jones save each other much like Elsa and Anna rescue each other in Frozen.
Then I started thinking of all the other ways the two are alike. Here is an impartial list that I came up with:
Death of parents is a catalyzing event
Doors used as symbolism to shut out others, physically and emotionally
Society is afraid of the hero’s powers
The hero tries to isolate herself and conceal her powers
The hero tries to maintain a cold and unemotional front
The charming boyfriend turns out to be evil
The bad guy uses his persuasive powers to gain control
Good-looking guys are sidekicks
An act of true love helps the sisters save themselves
They’re both something I want my daughter to watch
