And following the likes of the original movie’s Do You Want to Build a Snowman, Frozen Fever features Making Today A Perfect Day, a musical number written by Oscar-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez and sung by Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad, all resuming their unforgettable characters from the original movie.
According to the songwriters, Making Today A Perfect Day showcases Elsa’s great desire to surprise Anna—all while battling an ever-worsening cold. “I think on some deep level,” says Lopez, “she knows she shouldn’t be doing this party. She should be in bed. But Elsa is fierce and her love for her sister is fierce. So the song has a really intense drive to it—especially the piano.”
Adds Anderson-Lopez, “We wanted it to be that perfect sunny-afternoon song so that it fought against the situation that she’s getting sick; that adds to the comedy.”
Reuniting with the performers was like getting together with old friends, says Anderson-Lopez. “I feel like we’ve been through something extraordinary together; that connection will never go away.”
Directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, produced by Peter Del Vecho and Aimee Scribner, and executive produced by John Lasseter, Frozen Fever is now showing in cinemas, in front of Disney’s live-action Cinderella, which also has its soundtrack now out on CD.
