    Think you over reached on this theory. Just let it go....
    Elsa's hair and she color are the same as Anna's (her real sister) but it magically changed when she manifested her powers. What?! Hair color can change but blue eyes are resistant to magic because ...genetics??
    Anna's memory wasn't just wiped but quite possibly her patent power too. She could also have magical powers.
    The magical powers of the flower is extended life but Elsa didn't give life back to Anna. She was unfrozen as Elsa learned to control her powers with love. After that Elsa can freeze and unfreeze anything. And the comic relief snowmen are golems. Like sophisticated robots.

    Probably because she is raised in arrandelle her powers evolve a bit to fit the climate but because rapunzal was raised isolated, her powers didn't grow, making life her primary

    Elsa is related to Rapunzel, Anna is related to Tarzan. So Rapunzel,Elsa and Tarzan are not related.

    Doesn’t Elsa just have white- blonde hair because of her powers? Like, Anna’s hair changed too and I’m looking way too much into it ugh

    Btw rapunzels hair would not have grown back because she says herself that if its cut it doesnt grow back (besides in the show but I'm not talking about that) 4:39

    I would like to add just my thoughts about why Rapunzel has a backstory and Elsa doesn't.
    Let's say that Rapunzel doesn't have any backstory, and let's compare how a backstory may influence the story of a character.
    Now, we have imagined that Rapunzel didn't have a backstory. She was born with a magical hair, and here questions start to rise - why does she have only magical hair? Why doesn't she possess the healing power herself? Why these healing abilities are inherent for her hair? In order to get rid of these issues, the authors decided to add a backstory.
    But what about Elsa?
    She doesn't have any backstory, but we actually don't have to know it. We just understand that she has an inherent ability (of course, it would be interesting to find out how she got it). But the point is that athours don't need to explain why some of Elsa' part of body has a magical ability, and she herself doesn't. Viewers just perseve her ice ability as a talent.

    Also since Elsa has white hair and ice powers and Anna has red hair? (See where I’m going ?) Anna has fire powers also it’s not just that the frozen 2 title has scorch marks at the bottom then at the top its ice
