Welcome back, Hans.
Can we get a Frozen sequel centred around Hans and the “punishment” he endures once he returns to The Southern Isles? And how his family eventually feels bad for how terrible they’ve treated him and made him feel? Where there’s a happy ending, reteaching us the importance of family and love?
Because I truly believe Hans needs this.
NO! What the heck? Hans LITERALLY WAS GOING TO KILL TWO PEOPLE. He doesn’t need a HAPPY ENDING, he needs actual honest to God JAIL TIME. He was a predator! He took advantage of the fact that Anna was DESPERATE for love, he took advantage of the fact that Elsa THOUGHT she was doing the right thing, and he played them BOTH. HE TOLD ELSA HER SISTER WAS /DEAD/. She was on the way, sure, bUT FOR FUCKS SAKE, he lied to her to make her EASIER TO MURDER. He doesn’t need hugs and a happy fucking ending, he’s a sociopath.
Also, why this assumption his family ever treated him poorly? If anything, Hans acts like a guy used to getting what he wants. You know, A GUY WHO DOESN’T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER? Even if his brothers teased him when they were little, Hans acts like a guy who is used to getting whatever he wants, and when Elsa said no, it spelled out her death. Even when she HADN’T said no yet, he planned an “accident’. That wasn’t a break your legs accident, for fucks sake, he meant to kill her.
HANS DOESN’T DESERVE YOUR PITY. For FUCKS SAKE.
I think we can all agree Hans is hot and all, but that doesn’t change the fact that he’s an irredeemable, sadistic, sociopathic murderer. It doesn’t matter if his mommy was mean to him. Look, Cinderella had an evil stepmother and sisters who made her a literal slave her entire life, but she didn’t plan to seduce and murder her prince, now did she?
I don’t really think it’s fair to compare Hans to Snow White. All she had to do was lie there and that’s how she got her happy ending.
Sorry If I’m defending the bad guy in the film but no matter how logical your arguments maybe, I can’t hate Hans. I don’t like what he did, but his family situation hits a little too close to home for me to hate him.
Well, the comparison was being made between Hans and Cinderella, not Snow White, and the point was that your home life can be terrible but you can still escape from it being a decent human being, not how much work it took to get a happy ending. (Also it is completely fair to compare a villain to a heroine if that helps emphasize how extreme the actions of the villain was)
I understand some people can’t hate Hans, or can relate to his family situation. And that is fine. What isn’t fine is saying Hans deserves pity or sympathy after his evil actions. I acknowledge he is a tragic character, and it is a shame to see a handsome young man corrupted by lack of love and neglect, and you may sympathize with and pity his background and the unfortunate result of that background, separate from his character and actions.
But he ATTMPTS MUDER FOR PERSONAL GAIN. He is actively trying to take lives. To sympathize with Hans’ character, the villain of the story, is sympathizing with a potential murderer. No matter how much you relate with his situation, you are not a murderer and you are not a villain. You do not take lives for power and gain. You should know what it is like to love and feel for others, and he does not. He makes the personal choice to be evil, and while that may be influenced by his situation, that is still a choice people should not sympathize with. No body likes what he did and you don’t have to hate him for it, but no one should forgive what he did, or defend what he did, or think he can be easily redeemed from what he did.
To have the mindset to plot to overthrow a kingdom, to lie and take advantage or people, and show blantant disregard for human life is going to be terribly hard to change.
