"Frozen" sing-along coming to theaters nationwide
Jan 23, 2014
Beginning January 31, audiences will have a chance to sing along with the film Frozen while it's still in theaters. Over 1,000 theaters nationwide will feature a sing-along version of the hit animated film, with the lyrics showing at the bottom of the screen and a bouncing snowflake highlighting the words so audiences can sing along.
Dave Hollis, executive vice president of theatrical distribution for The Walt Disney Studios said, "Frozen fans have embraced the film's original songs and its soundtrack with such passion - there are countless YouTube videos from people singing songs like 'Let It Go' - we decided to create a version that would celebrate that enthusiasm. It's a great opportunity for families to get together and have some fun with these songs."
Frozen won a Golden Globe for Best Animated Film and has been nominated for two Oscars - Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song ("Let It Go"). The film has grossed $773 million in the box office and is close to surpassing The Lion King's box office numbers. The soundtrack has stayed at number one on Amazon and iTunes, and will be headed to Broadway in the future. The songs were all penned by three-time Tony awarding-winning Robert Lopez, known for Broadway's Avenue Q and The Book of Mormon, and his wife, Kristen Anderson-Lopez, who among other projects, worked on Winnie the Pooh and Disney's Finding Nemo - The Musical.
Check local listings to see if the sing-along will be shown in your theater. Each individual theater will decide how long the sing-along will be shown in their area.
Frozen will be released on Blu-ray and DVD March 18.
