Six-part audio series goes behind-the-scenes of the ‘Frozen’ sequel; first episode, with Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, debuts November 20.
ABC Audio, in conjunction with Walt Disney Animation Studios, has released the trailer for “Inside Frozen 2,” a new podcast series that gives us a rare deep dive into the making of the upcoming sequel to Frozen, the biggest animated movie in box office history. The six-part series, hosted by ABC News Chief Meteorologist Ginger Zee who appears daily on Good Morning America, launches on Wednesday, November 20th – just two days before the theatrical release of the film on November 22nd.
The first episode features an interview with Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who wrote all seven new original songs for Frozen 2 and won an Oscar for Frozen’s iconic song “Let It Go.” In the podcast series, the Lopezes not only talk to Zee about their creative process and evolution of songs from conception to completion, but also give an intimate piano performance, previewing the highly anticipated songs from Frozen 2 including “Into the Unknown.”
“I am so excited to bring all of you with me on a journey behind the scenes of Frozen 2 — you’ll get rare access to the creators, songwriters, animators and composers who brought this film to life,” says Zee. “The podcast format has given us the opportunity to explore the ins and outs of making one of the most anticipated films in Disney’s history and share the Frozen 2 magic with fans across the world.”
