'Frozen' returns in sing-along version

By: Guest Blogger
This could be good news or bad news, depending on your threshold for ultra-wholesome family entertainment: the higher-ups at Disney have decided they haven’t made quite enough money yet on Frozen, their $773-million-grossing blockbuster that’s still going strong in theatres, and thus will be releasing a new sing-along version starting Jan. 31. Not to make more money, mind you, but to “celebrate the enthusiasm” (that’s straight from the press release) of the film’s many young fans, specifically the ones who’ve been flooding YouTube with their own renditions of the film’s tepidly aspirational songs. I wasn’t a fan of the movie—can you tell?—but many others love it, and they’ll probably appreciate this new version. But will parents appreciate being forced to shell out—again—by their little American Idol wannabes? (I can’t even imagine what these screenings will be like: all those preteens wailing and emoting en masse. Ugh.) In any case, it’s clearly a canny move by Disney. Several other movies have gotten sing-along releases in recent years— The Sound of Music, Grease—but they’ve all been established hits. As far as I’m aware, this is the first time a film still in theatres has gotten the treatment. Kinda makes you wonder what might be next: a sing-along version of American Hustle, maybe? It could work! Who didn’t love the soundtrack to that one?
