Disney and ABC have lined up an act sure to please “Frozen” fans: Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell will perform together for the first time on prime-time television during “The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration.” The program airs 9 to 11 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 30.
Menzel gave voice to Elsa, and Bell supplied the voice of Anna in “Frozen,” the beloved 2013 animated film. The actresses will sing “When We’re Together” from the new featurette “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure.” They will be backed by a choir on the steps of Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Resort in California. Menzel also will perform “When You Wish Upon a Star” during “Disney Parks Magical Christmas Celebration.” That special airs on Christmas morning on ABC affiliates.
Bell said in a statement: “This performance will combine two of my very favorite things: the holidays and singing alongside my ‘Frozen’ sister, Idina Menzel. I’m excited to sing a song with Idina that I feel has the potential to become a new holiday classic.” Menzel said: “Anytime I get to reunite with Kristen, whether it’s in the studio or on the stage, is very special for me. I think I can speak for her when I say we are both so proud of this story we get to tell and these sisters we get to portray.” [Source]
