Frozen is inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale The Snow Queen, but the author Isabella Tanikumi says it is her own own story about growing up in the Andean mountains of Peru, reported TMZ.



Tanikumi says Disney plagiarised and copied the story, characters, and plots from her book.



Frozen tells the story of a fearless princess who sets off on an epic journey alongside a rugged iceman, his loyal pet reindeer and a snowman to find her estranged sister, whose icy powers have inadvertently trapped the kingdom in an eternal winter.
