Queen Stormella is an evil ice witch and the main antagonist of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer the Movie and supporting character in its sequel book Rudolph Saves The Sprites.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The MovieEdit

She is first seen coming to Santa Claus's toy factory and demands justice for her ice garden being destroyed and that she knows that one of Santa's elves was responsible by revealing Doggle's hat. After Doggle and Boone are revealed to have been the elves to have caused the incident Stormella demands Santa to hand them over or she will close off her bridge (which Santa uses to get across Grand Chasm) but Santa refuses so with that Stormella closes her bridge and says that if anyone tries to cross it she will create a storm so big and powerful Santa will not be able to make his trip before leaving to return to Ice Castle.

Years later Zoey crosses the bridge whilst looking for Rudolph and is captured and imprisoned by Stormella. Later Rudolph along with Leonard cross the bridge to rescue Zoey and a siren goes off alerting Stormella who looks through her crystal ball to see who crossed her bridge, but can't see anything due to the light of Rudolph's nose. Stormella later catches Rudolph and Leonard trying to save Zoey and imprisons them too and sings I Hate Santa Claus before leaving to create her storm. When she is asleep Slyly enters her room and steals her keys in order to free the others but later after the group escape they are confronted by Stormella who threatens to harm Zoey but Rudolph ends up blinding her with his red nose which causes her to fall off the edge of a cliff but is saved by him. Stormella by the laws of The North Pole, then grants Rudolph one wish for saving her so he says that he wants her to be nice and turns down the offer of having an ordinary nose. So Stormella becomes nice but says that she cannot stop her storm but later when Rudolph joins the rest of the Flyers he uses his nose to see through the storm and help Santa deliver his presents.

Stormella is last seen been given a ice sculpture of herself by Santa to make up for the statutes that were destroyed and later joins in with singing Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and plays piano at Santa's home.

Songs sung by StormellaEdit

Trivia Edit

  • The screenwriter wrote Stormella with to her daytime talk show. Although the role ultimately went to Whoopie Goldberg, Stormella's appearance stands as an homage to Roseanne who was the true inspiration for the character.
  • An earlier draft of the script revealed the reason behind Stormella's hostility toward Santa and the Elves: she was Santa's jilted ex-girlfriend and responsible for Santa setting up headquarters at the North Pole in the first place. She even kept his picture hidden under her mattress. However, the producer nixed this idea claiming, "You just can't do that. This is a kid's show."
  • In the German-dubbed release, Nina Hagen (who some call the godmother of punk), sings the voice of Stormella.
  • It appears that Slyly and Leonard have heard of Stormella or encountered her previously before their encounter of her when helping Rudolph save Zoey as Slyly knew of her owning wolves and Leonard knew another enterance into Ice Castle.
  • In the book Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: A Retelling of the New Animated Movie, Stormella's fate is different from that of the film. In the film, when Stormella falls down the cliff, Rudolph saves her whilst in the book, she falls down the cliff to an unknown fate.
