arrested development references in frozen

Who'd have guessed that the people at Disney were such big fans of Arrested Development!?!

Why do we say that, you ask?

Well, there were two MAJOR references to the series in the hit movie, which, apparently, were overlooked by a lot of people!

But, Robert Lopez, the Frozen composer (& EGOT winner!!!), admitted that one of the references was an "unconscious callback" to Jason Bateman's character on the show.

He said:

“I think [my wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez and I] had seen [that] episode once, and we did the joke, and realized that we had kind of made an homage. And then we tried to rewrite it, but we kept it because we couldn’t come up with anything better. Because Arrested Development is amazing.”

AH-MAZING!! We're sure the AD fans who saw the film were pleasantly surprised! Plus there's a very obvious reference to Portia de Rossi's character too!

But, did U catch the homages in the film??

If you didn't, then ch-ch-check them out…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

There was this scene:

And then this joke, which is what they tried to rewrite, but ended up keeping anyway!

    Every character in AR did the chicken dance, not just Portia's character.
