Broadway's 'Frozen' Debuts New Elsa Song 'Monster' Performed by Caissie Levy!

Disney’s brand-new Broadway musical Frozen begins preview performances TONIGHT (February 22) and a new song from the show just debuted!

Caissie Levy sings the power ballad “Monster” as Elsa at the end of the second act and you can watch her amazing performance thanks to The New York Times.

“It’s a moment of anxiety where the freedom she found in ‘Let It Go’ is shaken, and she hears in the distance the voices of the men coming for her, and she realizes now is the time she has to decide what her next move is,” songwriter Robert Lopez said about the song.

Kristen Anderson-Lopez added, “It’s full of conflicting emotions. It’s got fear. It’s got rage. It’s got her self-flagellation. It’s someone who has been living a double life of secrets and shame that no one knows about, and this is the moment of reckoning with all the destruction that she left behind her.”

Kristen Bell's Reaction to Her Kids Breaking Her 'Frozen' Ornament Is So Good

Kristen Bell‘s kids decapitated her Elsa and Anna Christmas ornament (from her hit Disney movie Frozen), and she posted the image on her Instagram account.

“This will be the cover of my autobiography and it will be titled ‘My children keep me grounded’” the 37-year-old actress posted on her social media account.

If you don’t know, this isn’t the first time that Kristen and Dax Shepard‘s kids – Lincoln, 4, and Delta, 2 – have shown a preference for Elsa, who was voiced by Idina Menzel in the film.

For Halloween, her kids had her dress as Elsa instead of dressing as her own character, Anna!

'Frozen' Short Film Before 'Coco' - Everything You Need to Know

If you’re seeing the new Disney/Pixar movie Coco and you’re wondering why Elsa and Anna from Frozen are on the big screen instead, don’t worry. You are at the right movie!

Olaf’s Frozen Adventure is a new 21-minute short film that Disney is playing in theaters before Coco. Depending on the amount of trailers your theater shows, the main feature won’t begin until about 40 minutes after the listed showtime.

The new short film features the voices of Idina Menzel as Elsa, Kristen Bell as Anna, Josh Gad as Olaf, and Jonathan Groff as Kristoff.

Olaf’s Frozen Adventure follows the lovable snowman, who is on a mission to harness the best holiday traditions for Anna and Elsa, who don’t have a family tradition for the holidays. There are four new original songs, including “When We’re Together.”

The short has a different creative team than the original film. Prep & Landing‘s Kevin Deters and Stevie Wermers-Skelton directed with original songs by Elyssa Samsel and Kate Anderson.

Go see Coco, now in theaters, to see the short film too!

Josh Gad Opens Up About Calling Sick Children as Olaf

Josh Gad is opening up about some of the touching experiences he’s been a part of as the voice of Olaf from Frozen.

The 36-year-old actor recently explained that he’s called numerous sick children whose only wish is to talk to Olaf.

“I actually get choked up thinking about some of the kids that I’ve left messages for because it’s so…it’s so fleeting. It’s such a little thing that I do that goes such a long way for these children. But you take their mind off of it for a minute, for a day,” Josh told Buzzfeed.

He added, “Hopefully you give their parents a distraction. As a parent, it’s the hardest thing to think about and, you know, I take ownership of the fact that that’s as much my job as doing the voice for commercial reasons. The fact that it has transcended that is such a wonderful thing, but it’s also really sad. I would take all of it back if it just meant that the kids could have a normal life. You know at the end of that call is another call where the child is gone.”
