Lonely Anna

"Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" is a song sung by Anna (Agatha Lee Monn, Katie Lopez and Kristen Bell) with additional dialogue by Elsa (Eva Bella and Spencer Lacey Ganus) in the 2013 Disney animated film, Frozen.

During this scene and song, a five-year-old Anna tries to convince Elsa to come outside of her room to play once she became isolated due to her powers. When Elsa's power started to become stronger, she is required to wear gloves. Anna, now nine-years-old, continues to convince Elsa to come out to play.

Years later, their parents left on a ship to cross the sea, soon crashing and causing their death. Fifteen-year-old Anna, who has just returned from her parents' funeral, comes to comfort Elsa about their future together.

The younger versions of the sisters are sung by Agatha Lee Monn and Katie Lopez (Jennifer Lee and Kristen Andersen Lopez's daughters, respectively).


Young Anna: Elsa?
Do you want to build a snowman?
Come on, let's go and play!
I never see you anymore
Come out the door
It's like you've gone away

We used to be best buddies
And now we're not
I wish you would tell me why!

Do you want to build a snowman?
It doesn't have to be a snowman...

Young Elsa: Go away, Anna.

Young Anna: Okay, bye...

Teen Anna: Do you want to build a snowman?
Or ride our bike around the halls?
I think some company is overdue
I've started talking to
The pictures on the walls!

Hang in there, Joan.

It gets a little lonely
All these empty rooms
Just watching the hours tick by...

Anna: Elsa, please I know you're in there
People are asking where you've been
They say, "have courage" and I'm trying to
I'm right out here for you
Just let me in

We only have each other
It's just you and me
What are we gonna do?

Do you want to build a snowman?


  • In the middle of the song (between 9 year-old Anna and 15 year-old Anna), it shows Elsa and Anna growing up and how their parents die (they die in a shipwreck).
  • The title (Do You Want to Build a Snowman?) of the song is what Anna asked Elsa in the beginning of the movie which made Elsa want to play with her snow powers with Anna resulting in Anna almost dying, although Anna remains oblivious to her powers throughout the years.
  • In one of the Frozen books, an extract from the book read that Anna attempted building a snowman outside herself, but fails because she has no help.
  • According to The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic, "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" almost didn't make the final cut of the movie. The song was constantly taken out and put back in but ultimately, right before release, there was a final call to place it back in.
