VIDEO: Idina Menzel Premieres FROZEN Song At D23!
Disney's epic and extravagent promotional launchpad event D23 kicked off yesterday and besides all the breaking news and special star appearances occuring there, the house of mouse has also offered up some spectacular performances, as well - including the world premiere of one of Idina Menzel vocal highlights from the new Disney animated film FROZEN.
Menzel took to the stage to enact a surprise live performance of "Let It Go", the very first tune to be heard from the forthcoming FROZEN, live last night at D23, to the ensuing shock and amazement of the rapt audience.
"A kingdom in isolation and it looks like I'm the queen," Menzel sings in the emotive and evocative song by AVENUE Q and THE BOOK OF MORMON Tony Award-winning composer/lyricist Robert Lopez and his wife, Kristen Anderson-Lopez.
"Let it go / Let it go / Can't hold it back anymore," Menzel plaintively pleads - as the character of Elsa in the film - with the catchy chorus of the ingratiating, melancholy-tinged tune.
If this lovely little ditty is any indication of the quality of the full score for the film to come, clearly we are in for quite a treat - frozen as it may be!
FROZEN is directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, with a screenplay by Jennifer Lee and Shane Morris based on the Hans Christian Andersen story THE SNOW QUEEN. In addition to Menzel, FROZEN also stars the voice talents of Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff, Santino Fontana, Josh Gad and more.
FROZEN is set to be released in 3D on November 27.
