Response of movie-goers to Disney’s Frozen has triggered the release of a sing-along version of the Oscar®-nominated, Golden Globe®-winning adventure beginning January 31, 2014. Frozenaudiences are invited to join the act—literally—as more than 1000 theaters will exhibit the new version.
“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,” said Dave Hollis, executive vice president, theatrical distribution, The Walt Disney Studios. “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.
At Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre, the Frozen sing-along version will include 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.
Frozen has received two Oscar® nominations: best animated feature and best original song (“Let It Go”). 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.
Frozen was released November 27, and posted the number 1 all-time Thanksgiving debut and the largest opening ever for a Walt Disney Animation Studios film. Disney’s 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.
Frozen will be released in Digital HD & 3D February 25 and on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD & On-Demand March 18, the home version of Frozen will contain never-before-seen bonus extras to complement the film’s gorgeous animation, memorable characters and unforgettable music.
