When Elsa and Kristoff discover that Hans and his twelve brothers are searching for an urn that has the ability to trap people like Elsa, the two of them go to find the urn and succeed in locating it. However, Hans arrives and threatens Kristoff's life until Elsa hands the urn over. He plans on trapping Elsa so that he can become the new ruler of Arendelle. Hans opens the urn, but unintentionally releases Ingrid, who turns him into an ice statue and keeps him amongst her belongings.
Thirty years later, Hans and everyone else is released from Ingrid's powers. Hans manages to capture Anna and Kristoff on Blackbeard's ship, and has the two locked in a chest and dumped overboard to die. However, Anna and Kristoff return to Arendelle with Elsa, and they manage to defeat Hans, claiming Arendelle once again. It is heavily implied that the battle resulted in Hans getting punched in the eye by Anna.
