Idina Menzel performs “Let It Go” at the 86th Annual Academy Awards
let’s talk about how much idina loves and understands the characters
In Tangled, we broke a wall down. Acting-wise, having Glen there to push you to find the truth in what you’re caricaturing, we all learned that on the film. I started Frozen with that knowledge. I learned that all on Tangled. But now, it’s a finely sharpened tool instead of a blunt instrument. When Idina Menzel came in and we showed her two sequences in particular, she paid us the ultimate compliment. She said, ‘What you guys are doing here, some of the great actors, I don’t see it in their performance.’ She noticed little furrowed brows, wrinkles, eye tension, pulsation in the lips, the breathing. Then her husband Taye Diggs told us he kept getting wrapped up and lost in the characters’ eyes. It was so cool because that’s exactly what we were trying to do. Being told we’re creating performances that you often don’t get from live action. That is the ultimate compliment for an animator.
Full Let It Go lyrics?
A few months ago, an Anon sent me the lyrics to Let It Go. I didn’t post them at the time because 1. spoilers! and 2. I wasn’t sure if they were legit or not… But they seem to match what we heard Idina sing at D23 so I guess they are? So thanks Anon, and sorry for not being able to publish them sooner! Obviously this is not official or anything, so take it with a grain of salt? (Also maybe someone else can confirm them?)

Of course! Idina Menzel played Nancy :)
