Frozen audiences are invited to join the act - literally - as more than 1000 theaters nationwide introduce an all-new sing-along version of Disney's Oscar-nominated, Golden Globe-winning big-screen adventure beginning Jan. 31, 2014. In addition to today's announcement, Disney has debuted a new version of the previously-released "Let It Go" musical sequence, which showcases the 25 different languages this hit animated musical was translated into.
Here's what Disney's Dave Hollis had to say about the new sing along version in a statement.
"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."
According to Hollis, on-screen lyrics and a magical bouncing snowflake will accompany select showings. Moviegoers can check local listings for showtimes and theaters. The duration of the sing-along run will vary by theater.
Disney's Frozen received two Oscar nominations, including best animated feature and best original song ("Let It Go"). Named best animated film by more than a dozen critics associations, the film won a Golden Globe for best animated feature, two Critics Choice Movie Awards, including best animated feature and best song ("Let It Go"), and a Producers Guild of America Award for outstanding animated feature.
In wide release since November 27, the film posted the No. 1 all-time Thanksgiving debut and the largest opening ever for a Walt Disney Animation Studios film. Frozen, WDAS' 53rd feature film, has earned more than $773 million worldwide, including $337` million domestically. The film's soundtrack was No. 1 in the Billboard top 200 for two straight weeks.
At Hollywood's El Capitan Theatre, the Frozen sing-along version includes on-stage appearances from the movie's Elsa prior to each showing, plus snow flurries inside the theater. Showtimes are at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.
On Digital HD & 3D Feb. 25 and Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD & On-Demand March 18, the in-home version of Frozen promises continued family fun with a blizzard of never-before-seen bonus extras to complement the film's gorgeous animation, memorable characters and unforgettable music.
About the Movie
Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph, presents Frozen, a stunning big-screen comedy adventure. Fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey-teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven-to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf (voice of Josh Gad), Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom. The film is directed by Chris Buck (Tarzan, Surf's Up) and Jennifer Lee (screenwriter, Wreck-It Ralph), who also wrote the screenplay. It is produced by Peter Del Vecho (Winnie the Pooh, The Princess and the Frog). Featuring original songs from Kristin Anderson-Lopez (In Transit, Winnie the Pooh) and Tony winner Robert Lopez (The Book of Mormon, Avenue Q), and an original score by Christophe Beck (The Muppets, Oscar®-winning short Paperman), Frozen opened in theaters nationwide on Nov. 27, 2013. Accompanying Frozen is Walt Disney Animation Studios' Get a Horse. With Walt Disney himself as the voice of Mickey Mouse, the all-new short features Mickey, his favorite gal pal Minnie Mouse and their friends Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow as they delight in a musical haywagon ride.
