Sup Travellers?! Peruvian native and autobiographer Isabella Tanikumi is one of the many people who watched 'Frozen', the fifth highest grossing movie of all time. She didn't say if she liked it or not but she's apparently planning on suing Disney for $250 million because she believes that the plot was stolen from her 2010 memoir " Yearnings of the Heart."

 EntertainmentWise points out a synopsis of the book:

"This is a compelling, introspective account of the life of Isabella Tanikumi, who takes her readers on a journey through various phases of her remarkable life- from her family’s survival during the devastating earthquake of 1970 in Huaraz, Peru, to the trials of overcoming heartbreaks of her youth. Conquering personal insecurities led to exploring the reaches of her intellect while facing the tragic, and untimely death of her beloved sister, Laura."

Firstly, I don't recall an earthquake in 'Frozen' nor the death of Elsa's sister. Nevertheless, Tanikumi's three page complaint insists that 'Frozen' stole the story, characters and general feeling from her work and demands a jury trial. She lists 18 examples of what she claims to be plagiarism from characters' names to the animated film's central sisterly relationship.

I don't see how Tanikumi can possibly win this case but there's no harm in trying right? [LOL]. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
