Okay, gorgeous animation aside, I love how this gifset shows these characters in way evocative of the four seasons.
- Rapunzel is Spring, because she’s new to the world and the world is new to her - she’s young and small and naive, but she blossoms and grows into a strong, independent woman (and much-loved ruler of her kingdom, just saying)
- Merida is Summer, because she’s all about activity and the outdoors and she’s a little bit fiery - she’s sassy and her temper is short and she’s totally independent
- Hiccup is Autumn, because he’s a bit more mature and grounded - at least compared to Merida - and because his role in his movie marks a period of great growth
- Jack is Winter, because look at anything related to the movie even just the wikipedia summary that one’s pretty self-explanatory
Also winter is symbolic of death, and Jack…died.
