Oil isn't the only worthwhile commodity in Kuwait ... one woman claims it's also the home to the idea for "Frozen" ... and she claims Disney stole it from her.
Muneefa Abdullah claims she came up with the idea that true love conquers evil, a central theme in "Frozen."
Abdullah has filed a lawsuit against Disney, claiming she wrote a book called "New Fairy Tales" which contained the short story, "The Snow Princess."
Abdullah says her story involves a princess who possesses magical ice powers that give her the ability to turn people and objects into ice ... which just so happens to be the plot to "Frozen."
Abdullah fires off a number of similarities, including:
-- A kingdom made of ice and surrounded by mountains -- A sibling in search and rescue of the sibling possessing the magical ice powers -- A journey up the mountain, snowy guards guarding an icy castle on the mountaintop -- The idea that only love is capable of defeating evil
