Lawsuit filed by Kelly Wilson against Disney over the similarities between her animated short film "The Snowman" and the trailer of the Mouse House's "Frozen (2013)" movie could head to trial.

"The sequence of events in both works, from start to finish, is too parallel to conclude that no reasonable juror could find the works substantially similar," Chhabria said. The judge listed the resemblances as follow: "(i) a snowman loses his carrot nose; (ii) the nose slides out to the middle of a frozen pond; (iii) the snowman is on one side of the pond and an animal who covets the nose is on the other."
