The Snow Queen: Mirrorlands (Russian: Снежная Королева: Зазеркалье, romanizedSnezhnaya Koroleva: Zazerkal'e, lit.'The Snow Queen: Looking Glass') is a 2018 Russian 3D computer-animated fantasy adventure family film written by Andrey Korenkov, Robert Lence and directed by Robert Lence and Aleksey Tsitsilin. Wizart Animation took charge of design while Boris Mashkovtsev, Yuri Moskvin, Vladimir Nikolaev [ru], Pavel Stepanov, and Vadim Vereshchagin produced the film. The film stars Lina Ivanova [ru] as Gerda and Nikolay Bystrov, Filipp Lebedev, Lyasan Utiasheva, Vladimir Zaystev [ru], Irina Bezrukova [ru], Nadezhda Angarskaya [ru], Vsevolod Kuznetsov [ru], Olga Zubkova [ru], Nikita Prozorovsky [ru], Anton Eldarov [ru], Mikhail Yuryevich Tikhonov in supporting roles.

For the first time in Russian animation history, a film was co-directed by a Hollywood animator. Mirrorlands is the fourth film in the The Snow Queen franchise, following The Snow Queen 3: Fire and Ice, and like the previous installments, the stories are inspired by the 1844 fairy tale of the same name by Hans Christian Andersen. The film follows the war between magicians and technocrats.

The film was presented at film markets and festivals such as AFM and Cannes. Central Partnership and Soyuzmultfilm released the film in Russia and in Commonwealth of Independent States on 1 January 2019. The film received positive reviews from critics with reviews comparing the movie to the masterpiece works of Russian author Mikhail Bulgakov.

Plot

Gerda and Kai are finally reunited with their parents. Together they move to a certain province, ruled by a powerful inventor King Harald. In a family full of professional magicians, only Gerda doesn't have the ability to wield magic. However, the family is satisfied by selling first-class magic trinkets. One day grandma comes to buy a trinket at their shop. Gerda tells it cost ten dinars. Grandma couldn't buy it all because of her retirement benefits. She almost leaves, before Gerda tells her to buy it for free.

A new competition at the court was announced, with families including Gerdas clamoring to go and get the position as court magician. Sadly, Gerda is the only one who stays at the home responsible to guard the store items. King Harald is an ardent advocate of technical progress. He builds machines and robots. Harald decides to banish all magicians from the realms. Harald nearly lost his family due to the Snow Queen's previous deeds. As reparation, Harald issues a new decree that the products of scientists, engineers, and the inventors will be the standard while the amulets, potions, and talismans of the magicians will be relegated or even forbidden. King Harald finds a way to ban all the magic from the world - all the possessors of magic powers are now trapped in Mirrorlands.

After the powerful king traps all the world's magicians in the polar internment zone, Gerda finally finds out why all the magicians vanish at the palace. Gerda takes this mystery into her own hands as she battles to keep magic alive through kindness and friendship. However she is sent to jail at the top of the castle. Inside the Mirrorlands zone, a meeting is held of all those who have magic. Gerda's parents believe only Gerda can rescue them. They travel to the Snow Queen's castle, where she is playing chess. They reconcile all their past differences and agree for a united plan of action. Gerda will be helped by trolls, pirates, and even the frigid and mysterious Snow Queen herself. Even Rollan the wielder of fire will return from the prequel to help save the magicians from the imminent threat imposed by the magical blue mirror called the looking glass.

One of their rendezvous to the land of the trolls includes an aerial battle with zeppelins in the floating City of Pirates. Gerda manages to seek the services of air captain Alfida. Alfida agrees to sail the shark airship zeppelin with the hero and heroine as passengers. King Harald and his airship fleet are already on their way to thwart Gerda's plan of liberation engaging in a battle between spells and technology. Teaming up with the pirates of the Flying City, the heroes try to capture the capital of the region and re-open the portal to the looking glass using the amulet of King Arrog.

Development

“The main idea of the movie is a confrontation between magic and the technical progress. We’ve managed to create a visually pleasant world where magic intertwines with technologies. A huge city teems with all kinds of steam carriages, airships, submarines, automatic cleaning machines, and other gadgets. That forced us to develop a lot of technological ideas to achieve what we wanted."

— Director Robert Lence[4]

The fourth installment of The Snow Queen franchise was in the works since 2016.[5] Wizart Animation collaborated with American animation veteran Robert Lence. Previously, Lence has worked as a script writer, animator, and story board consultant for major studios including Dinsey, Pixar, and Dreamworks.[6] Lence became a director alongside co-director Aleksey Tsitsilin. For the first time in Russian animation history, a film was co-directed by a Hollywood animator.[2]

Both Tsitsilin and Lence reciprocated their skills for the movie. Tsitsilin noted Lence gave the film more comedic output that is usually present in American animated movies, while Lence remarked, "It was also nice to see them incorporate things in the film that are particular to their own culture and sensibilities. Because they do indeed have such a rich history of film making and storytelling in their country. And likewise, I learned a great deal from them as well." Lence also pointed out, despite the geographic and language barrier between Hollywood and Russia they were able to find common ground. Lence continued, "It’s those revelatory crossover moments in the course of creating the story, where we came to a shared understanding of what is funny, heartfelt, or entertaining. We realized that we can both learn from each other's cultures and differences, and celebrate what each of our cultures has to bring to the table."[7]

The work for the movie lasted two years. The movie had children as the target audience alongside messages that foster kindness by using actions guided by the heart.[8] At the March 2018 FILMART Asian Film Market in Hong Kong, preliminary content of the movie was presented.[9] On 12 September 2018, at the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, a trilateral liaison between the Russian Export Center, Wizart Animation, and the company from China - HY Media/Cayie International Media Group was signed. Andrey Slepnev, General Director of the REC and Yuri Moskvin, executive producer of Wizart Animation attended the forum.[10][11]

The signing became one of the first times, China became a joint partner in producing a Russian animated movie. Lisha Nin, the CEO China-HY Media/Cayie International Media Group remarked the plan will bring the Russian animation industry within great export potential to China.[10][11]

Themes

In November 2017, at the American Film Market, Wizart Animation presented the materials for The Snow Queen: Mirrorlands. Presenters remarked the film will be a fusion of technology and magic. Robert Lence explained how the film will be a melting pot of steampunk genre through the use of technology such as airships intertwined with the polar fairy tale setting of the franchise based on the Hans Christian Andersen's plot.[12][13][14] Co-director Alexsey Tsitsilin emphasized the film will also feature fundamental themes such as friendship, kindness, forgiveness, and perseverance saying, "The movie answers the question, ‘Should we really treat people united by some common feature bad if only one of them did something wrong?" The movie will explore this theme around the realm of collective punishment and whether it is a rightful means of justice.[7]

The concept is explored in the film, when a decree to imprison all magicians in an ice portal because they don't fit scientific, technical definitions is imposed on the land with mostly everyone affected except the character Gerda.[15] The film described the ramifications that arise when science converges with magic.[6] In the film, the character King Harald represents the clan of scientists and technology while the character Gerda represents the clan of magic and fairy tales. The film is a description of the cultural phenomena that is released when seemingly incompatible establishments intersect and cross each other's path. The script's use of diametrically opposite clans of magicians and technocrats were applauded by reviews, as if the story came out of a 20th-century Bulgakov novel.[16][17]

The conflict is explored within the context of science colliding with magic presented by new characters such as King Harald.[6] The conflict parallels mankind's rationalism in the Industrial Revolution in contrast to the spiritual enlightenment found in schools of thought such as Transcendentalism, and Naturalism.[18][19] Another theme developed was reconciliation seen in the finale when unexpected enemies find common ground to help solve the crisis of the fairy world.[18] The script was developed to accommodate all the friends and foes of the past series.[15]

The film was slated to finished by the end of 2018. Central Partnership and Soyuzmultfilm distributed the film to Russia and neighboring countries.[20][21] Soyuzmultfilm returned to produce a Snow Queen adaptation ever since its 1957 film by Lev Atamanov that has earned a place in Russian animation classics.[22] A Russian cast gave the voice performance for the characters. Lina Ivanova (Hermione Granger-Harry Potter) voiced Gerda. Alfida the pirate was voiced by Lyasan Utiasheva. Celebrity stage and screen actress Irina Bezrukova voiced Gerda and Kai's mother, Una. Nadezhda Angarskaya voiced Lilit. Vladimir Zaystev (Sherlock Holmes-Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows) voiced King Harald.[23] Polish actresses Agata Kulesza and Natalia Szroeder also lend voices for the localized dub.[24] Brazil voice cast included actress and singer Larissa Manoela, João Côrtes(pt), and Igor Jansen.[25]

Animation

The feature film is considerably different from its prequels due to its sophisticated artwork on technology. The animation studio expanded the fairy tale universe to a megalopolis whose industry runs on inventions.[26] Animators increased the quality of the film to showcase real-life depiction of the elements such as clouds, lava and water. Special effects of the reflections of the sun on the sea waves were developed.[27][6] At the AFM presentation, animators explained how they created a cloud system. First the layout department models the cloud, adds geometry with polygonal modeling tools, and stages the shot. Next, the effects department uses volume processing tools to generate complex shapes. 3D noise displacement and smoothing algorithms are employed in this process. Finally, OpenVDB library created by DreamWorks efficiently formats the data.[21]

Animators had to hone their skills especially in the areas of dialogue and actions when it came to interactions between the characters Gerda and the Snow Queen, because they were the only characters in the story capable of communicating with each other. Animators unlocked new areas of artistry that featured aerial chases with zeppelins featured in the City of Pirates episode.[21]

Soundtrack

The original score was composed by Fabrizio Mancinelli who had worked on a number of projects for Disney including Growing up with Nine Old Men (directed by Theodore Thomas) and comedy film Scappo a Casa. With Mancinelli's original score, the music for the soundtrack was recorded by the Budapest Scoring.[28][29] The theme song is "The Best Adventure" sung by Fabrizio Mancinelli and Jessica Kline. Yulia Iva, a singer from Russia who has worked for projects such as Beauty and the Beast and Little Mermaid gave voice to the theme song "The Best Adventure."[24]

Reception

Critical response

KinoKultura review by Olga Blackledge stated the international appeal of The Snow Queen franchise is undeniable as it has been shown in over 150 countries. Furthermore, there was a statement about the film's overall secret formula for success, "So what is its secret? The franchise in general, and Mirrorlands in particular, have been praised for its technological mastery which is consistently growing. Even with a relatively low budget, Wizart Animation manages to create world-class animation."[2] InterMedia gave the movie an acclaimed 5 stars, stating the movie's script is akin to the stories of Russian author Mikhail Bulgakov.[16]

Critics from Germany of Die Schneekönigin: Im Spiegelland (The Snow Queen: In The Mirror Country) included Film-Rezensionen's review was much more favorable with the film's theme of reconciliation. The review stated, "The conciliatory note is, of course, extremely nice as the Snow Queen tries to get away from the usual black-and-white drawing that prevails in such animated films."[12] Spielfilm also reviewed the film with 3/5 stars:

The fact that Alfida's ship and the king's chase fleet are flying through the air, carried by a zeppelin shaped like a shark or by balloons, is one of the most appealing visual ideas of the film. This turbulent story also borrows from the genre of superhero films. Thematically and creatively, the film impresses with an enormous wealth of ideas. He's trying to bring too many different elements under one roof. The landscapes with their gorges through which the airships fly, the blue mirror country, but also the old town in which Gerda lives, are beautifully drawn backdrops. So all in all, the jam-packed film turned out to be quite appealing.[50]

Moviebreak finds Mirrorlands is the perfect alternative to Frozen II, as both were released in 2019. The review was surprised by the output, because Wizart has proven it "gained self-confidence" in building a series from a fairy tale. The review liked the movie's message of reconciliation and animation stating, "With plenty of action, some suspense, and the theme of reconciliation, the fourth part of the 'Snow Queen' series also surprises and reveals entertainment for the very little ones among us. Although there are again narrative weaknesses and a quite simple plot, the strengthened visual power as well as the ambivalent characters can convince. Even non-connoisseurs of the series will not do much wrong here and can enjoy a fast-paced fairy tale on the big screen."[51]

Reviews found the character development of Gerda exemplary as she becomes a superhero girl. Moviebreak stated, "This then also benefits the finale, where not only Gerda can finally triumph as a fighting girl and no longer needs to be saved" and Italian review from der Zweifel stated: "Everything goes for the better and the girl eventually discovers that she is the most powerful magician in the village turning into a kind of superhero." der Zweifel also touched upon the innovative plot's idea of the struggle between technology vs. magic has "great potential" that parallels modern society's importance on rationalism contingent upon "what is seen" or "technological" as opposed to what "the sense of spiritual and magical that man has always sought and developed spontaneously."[18]

French critic from Avoir-Alire remarked at its visuals, "Despite a limited plot, the franchise of Wizart Animation tends increasingly to the development of a very recognizable universe of its own: impeccable graphics, saturated colors, friendly characters, sustained rhythm. Young spectators should appreciate it. A simple story, no surprise, saved by a dazzling staging. The scenery is quite remarkable; the enchanting, icy blue color makes all the aesthetics of the film."[52]

LePop from Brazil stated, "With a plot that tries to rescue the golden times of Fairy Tales, The Frozen Kingdom: The Land of Mirrors can please children and also fathers, mothers and other family members who like this style of narrative."[53] A Czech review from Červený Koberec approved of the movie's plot: "the belief that even bad people can make amends makes The Snow Queen special compared to other fairy tales." The review also stated, "The creators are still coming up with at least new ideas" that didn't have any superfluous elements like "unnecessary jokes and political innuendo."[54]

Chris Hunneysett reviews gave the movie 3 stars stating the movie's landscapes were particularly noteworthy through its "epic sweep of the adventure on a journey of honey hued vistas: featuring lava lakes, giant rock monsters, and sky pirates." In-depth, the animators added intricate details to the landscapes as well: "However there’s a surprisingly intricate styling to the charming cityscapes, which feature robot-like street sweepers and trolley trams, and it’s full of slapstick silliness with mischievous and cute critters."[55]

Sunday Independent from Ireland, remarked the film is highly competitive. With a final rating of 4 stars, the review stated, "To save the day, she(Gerda) will team up with the Snow Queen for an elaborate adventure populated with a robust array of characters and top-drawer fantasy animation. Parents really can't go wrong here."[56]

Box office

The budget spent on the film was $6 million.[2] During the premieres in Poland and Slovenia the cartoon took second place in rentals overtaking major overseas competitors. The movie became the first Russian film to receive $1 million at the international box office in 2019.[57] In Russia the collections in total amounted to $5.1 million. By the end of 2019 box office results, the animated movie became the most popular Russian animated film at the foreign box office. The fourth part took the second place of the highest-grossing domestic films releases abroad in 2019 with first place going to the feature film Going Vertical.[58]

The cartoon picked off where it left off from its prequel in Bulgaria as it set new records. According to general director Emil Simeonov of the distribution company Pro Films, Mirrorlands became the best foreign independent animation venture in Bulgaria in retrospect of 25 years that earned more than 100 thousand levs (the currency in Bulgaria) topping DreamWorks' How to Train Your Dragon-3 at premiere weekend. Fees for the fourth part of the franchise exceeded $2.5 million outside of Russia.[59] The film was a major Russian release in France.[60] Overall, currently the film has collected a total of $10 million.[3]
