Idina Menzel & FROZEN Songwriters Detail 'Let It Go' Hit StatusBroadway headliner and popular crossover star Idina Menzel joins with the songwriting team behind her current mega-hit FROZEN breakout single "Let It Go" for a discussion of the song's unexpected international hit status as part of a new interview.

Tony Award winner Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez take viewers behind the scenes of the creation of the instant-classic tune for the Disney tentpole release while Menzel shares her own personal reaction to the show's viral video frenzy in the clip.

"My son, for instance, sings 'Let It Go' back to me in the bathtub," Menzel candidly shares of the song's impact, even in her own household.

Additionally, the Lopez team shares some backstory on the original version of the character of Elsa and how the song radically changed her perceived characterization in the final film.

FROZEN is currently available on Disney's streaming service, with a Blu-ray and DVD release set for next month.
