.The film is based on the Hans Christian Anderson story, The Snow Queen. Since its release, it has become the 18th highest grossing film of all time, joining films such as The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Toy Story 3, Alice in Wonderland, and the second and fourth films in the Pirates of the Caribbean series to reach the $1 billion mark. The chairman at Walt Disney studios, Alan Horn, shared his appreciation for the Disney fans in a recent press release. “With Frozen, we knew we had something truly special on our hands, and it has connected with fans and filmgoers around the world in a way we only dreamed was possible.” Horn added, “Animation is the cornerstone of our company, and thanks to the vision, dedication, and talent or our tremendous cast and filmmaking team, Disney Animation has come roaring back with a new classic for fans of all ages.” Frozen also won the Oscar for "Best Original Song" for “Let It Go,” with music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Idina Menzel, who voiced Elsa in the film, also performed the song at the awards. After they excepted the award, the duo where asked about the upcoming Broadway adaption of the film, and about Jonathan Groff’s character Kristoff only having one song, “Reindeer(s) are Better Than People.” Robert said, “Well, we hope to rectify that for Frozen, the musical. If we-if we do get a chance to write that, and we hope to with Disney, we’ll give Kristoff a proper song.” Despite Frozen’s huge success, the film has yet to be released in Japan, where it will arrive on March 14th. But it is safe to safe that fans aren’t ready to “Let It Go” just yet.
