My daughter, like almost all children, had last Monday off for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. I gave her a slew of options of what we could do: Go to the new American Girl Doll store, play Disney Infinity, go for a bike ride, or go visit the animals at the zoo. Her choice was not any of those. She wanted to go see Frozen … again! This was fine by me, since I love the instant classic almost as much as she does. But I hesitated and suggested a totally different option, for one reason, I knew there was no way my 8-year-old child would be able to sit through the screening without belting out and singing along with the very VERY popular songs from the soundtrack.
I mentioned that the songs were very VERY popular, and this is not just my opinion from hearing my daughter and 90% of her friends breaking into their own versions of Let it Go each and every day. The popularity of the soundtrack is now fact. It was the No. 1 album on the Billboard Top 200 for two straight weeks. Impressive, no?
But instead of worrying that my daughter’s singing would disturb other theater-goers, this kind of behavior will be encouraged at the brand new sing-along version of Frozen hitting theaters really, really soon! The special sing-along Frozen experience will be in select theaters starting on Friday, Jan. 31, 2014. This special version will have the song lyrics on the screen with a bouncing snowflake to keep everyone up to speed.
“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.”
