Entertainment This Week: Evil Elsa? ‘Frozen’ producer reveals film’s original ending

Uh-Oh Frozen Fans, Elsa Had A Different Role Than We What We Saw

Disney’s animated phenomenon, “Frozen,” may not have been a heartwarming tale of sisterly love if its creators stuck to the film’s original planned ending.

“Frozen” producer Peter Del Vecho tells Entertainment Weekly the original version of the film was more in line with the Hans Christian Andersen tale on which it’s based. Del Vecho says princess sisters Anna and Elsa weren’t related in early scripts. He says “Elsa was a self-proclaimed Snow Queen, but she was a villain and pure evil.”

The drafts included a finale with Elsa using her powers to save the kingdom, but Del Vecho says the character’s evilness gave them “no emotional connection” to her. The filmmakers finally got things right after reworking the script.

A sequel to the film is in production.

‘Happy Endings’ Star Adam Pally Arrested On Drug Charges

(AP) — Actor Adam Pally has been arrested and charged with possession of cocaine and marijuana in New York.

New York City police spokesman Thomas Antonetti tells The Associated Press that Pally was arrested late Tuesday night in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan. He faces a criminal possession charge for the cocaine and a possession of marijuana count. A court date is set for June. Pally’s representative didn’t immediately return a request for comment Thursday.

Pally is best known for his role as Max Blum in the short-running ABC sitcom “Happy Endings.” He also plays Dr. Peter Prentice on Hulu’s “The Mindy Project” and stars in “Making History” on Fox.

(AP) — Longtime friends Leonardo DiCaprio and Q-Tip hung out at an intimate showcase for an Australian band making its New York City debut late Wednesday.

DiCaprio bobbed his head from his plush chair while sitting next to Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Nina Agdal and chatting with the leader of A Tribe Called Quest.

Q-Tip went to the stage to watch when the band asked people to come closer, as DiCaprio, in a fedora, sat back. The audience included music industry insiders, record label players and some press.

Chase Atlantic performed songs from its three-song project released in January, “Part One,” as well as tracks from another three-song album, “Part Two,” to be released Friday.

The group’s genre-bending sounds echo The Weeknd and The 1975. Band members include brothers Clinton Cave and Mitchel Cave, and Christian Anthony.
