Hans Christian Andersen (April 2, 1805 - August 4, 1875) was a Danish author, fairy tale writer, and poet who wrote many fairy tales that Disney adapted from to make films and shorts like The Ugly Duckling, the 1989 animated film The Little Mermaid (based on the book of the same name), Piano Concerto No. 2, in Fantasia 2000 based on The Steadfast Tin SoldierThe Little Matchgirl and the 2013 animated film Frozen based on The Snow Queen. One of his other stories, Ole Lukoie, was adapted into a 1944 Walt Disney's Little Library storybook, Through the Picture Frame.

Trivia

The names of Frozen's characters were inspired by conducting an Internet search for Norwegian baby names. While completely unintentional, a fan put together the fact that Hans, Kristoff, Anna, and Sven sound like Hans Christian Andersen. [1]
