We've seen a fan animatic of "Life's Too Short," a duet that was ultimately cut from Frozen, but what was Disney's actual vision for the scene? This storyboard sequence gives us a clue.

These storyboards, played over the song from the Frozen soundtrack, were shown at an open lecture at the Beijing Film Academy. The scene didn't fit the final version of the movie, as this Elsa is more determined to hang on to her freedom than afraid of her powers and an earlier version of the film contained a prophecy that a ruler with a "frozen heart" would bring unending winter to the land. And the moment when Elsa blasts Anna with her ice powers is more shocking in the deleted scene.
