Frozen is making it’s way back into the mainstream and – to the chagrin of some – back into everyone’s heads!
Disney announced today (13th June) that at this year’s D23 Expo in August, a Frozen fan event will be held at the Anaheim Convention Center – a venue situated close to the original Disneyland.
This one-day-only event is called ‘Frozen FANdemonium: A Musical Celebration!’ and will be hosted by President of Walt Disney Music, Chris Montan and the Academy Award-winning songwriting duo behind the film, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.
The couple won both an Oscar and a Grammy for the movie’s signature song ‘Let It Go’, as well as a Grammy for the complete Frozen soundtrack. This completed Lopez’ collection of awards, making him the youngest recipient of the EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony). Their song ‘Moving Pictures’, sung by Neil Patrick Harris, opened the 2015 Academy Awards.
The event will feature everyone’s favourite Arendelle residents, including Elsa and Anna, and will focus on the music of Frozen – exploring its magical world through the power of song. Along the way, fans will get to participate in fun interactive segments and sing-alongs of their favourite tunes, including the powerful (and now slightly overplayed) ballad, originally sung by Idina Menzel. Fans will also be able to hear the stories behind the songs, as well as experience many more surprises that are yet to be announced.
D23 is the official fan club for the Walt Disney Company, founded in 2009 with the D standing for Disney and the 23 standing for 1923 – the year when Walt Disney himself arrived in Hollywood. The 2013 D23 Expo presented an exclusive look at Frozen with a special sneak-peak live performance of ‘Let It Go’ sung by Menzel.
The fan event will take place on 16th August at the Anaheim Convention Centre, California.
