DISNEY’S Frozen 2 will feature a character who is not constantly making snappy wise cracks, it has emerged.
In a radical shift away from animated film tradition, the film includes a character called Susan who talks normally instead of having a punchy, witty response to every situation.
A Disney spokesperson said: “We’re keen to move away from the animation stereotype of irritatingly over-confident chipper characters who talk in a perky, rhythmical manner that makes you want to kick them off a cliff.
“Susan is a girl who works in a shop and speaks normally instead of in a sequence of forced, funny retorts.
“For example, in a scene where she falls down a tunnel Susan doesn’t say ‘We’re in a hole lot of trouble’, the more obvious ‘Hold onto your hats, compadres’ or start singing a song about growing as a person.
“She just falls down the hole, looking really scared and squealing a bit, then lands in a heap at the bottom, groaning in pain.
“At the point you might expect a one-line zinger about her ‘butt’ but instead she just says ‘Jesus Christ my leg really hurts’ then hobbles off.”
