Pretty sure Hans Christian Anderson was Danish.
Which means that both Little Mermaid and Frozen take place in Denmark.

The Little Mermaid is a fairy tale, so it propably takes place in a fantasy world.
I don't think H. C. Andersen ever thought about geography, when he wrote his stories.

Also, the map represents Disney's interpretations of the stories. They changed the ending of the story, added and removed characters, and gave the Little Mermaid a name. CHanging the setting of the story isn't much compared to the rest.

Besides, it says in the end credits of the movie that it's based on the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen.

It's very clearly stated by the creators of Frozen that the setting is Norway. The writer is Danish though.

Also, if you've ever been to Denmark you will know that there is no such this as a fjord there, nor mountains for that matter.

Well then I guess since the writer of Beauty and the Beast wasn't really thinking about France when they were writing, if could have taken place in Italy. Pretty much the same thing, right?

Actually Frozen have alot of elements from Norway and a bit from Sweden and less from Denmark, but yes at least The Little Mermaid, which don't have elements (of what I know of except that everyone is white) from the real world, should be in Denmark like H. C. Andersen was.

So short summary: It's understandable that Frozen could be places in Norway on the map, but if there isn't any clues from where The Little Mermaid is located it should be in Denmark

Are you trying to troll or something.

Here is a pic of a Norwegian fjord to make it clear that "Frozen" was set in Norway. Not Denmark. While "the Snow Queen" is perhaps set in Denmark "Frozen" is very much not. Disney no doubt thought the Norwegian landscape was more dramatic and fitting for their story than the drab and dull Danish plains.

Do you know what an "adaptation" is? It's this fancy thing that happens when somebody makes their own version of a story.

Have you honestly not figured out that movies cut things out of books yet?

Changing this thing or that is fine- Repunzel's prince not having his eyes pecked out and forced to wonder the desert for four years after making Repunzel pregnant, and Repunzel herself being cast and forced to live as a begger while with child, I'm cool with them changing that.
The Litle Mermaid not having her tail torn in two, Hunchback of Notre Dame not starving to death in his greif, Sleepign Beauty not being raped in her sleep- I'm cool with all of this being taken awya.

But taking away a huge character, taking Kai out is like taking away Repunzel's long hair, or having Ariel be human from the start. Kai was the reason Anna's book counterpart even went on a journey. They could sold Frozen as a stand alone movie- it's a fucking brilliant movie and I love it and by the gods am I going to see the sing along versian, but it's just not the heart wrenching tale I read as a kid.

The guy who wrote Tarzan of the Apes was American, so Tarzan was set in America.
What.

In the Little Mermaid, the location isnt explicably set - fish are found all over the world, and there arent many Mermaids who go to find Prince Eric in Denmark.
