The groundswell of support for Frozen, 2013’s best animated movie and Disney’s most enduring offering in a decade — has blossomed into a full-blown cultural movement as the Oscar nominee (for Best Animated Feature) ices out its box office competition, breaking box office records right and left.
Buoyed by Oscar-nominated single “Let It Go,” Frozen’s soundtrack is also cementing its place in the record books, becoming the fourth animated film in history to reach No. 1 on the Billboard charts — it joins Jack Johnson’s Curious George (2006), and Disney’s Pocahontas (1995) and The Lion King (1994).
But, perhaps more significantly, “Let It Go” has become an anthem for anyone who has ever felt dissed, disenfranchised, or devalued. Hence, the widespread application of GIFs from the splendid scene.
Now, Disney is issuing a thank-you to Frozen’s fans the world over by creating a music video for “Let It Go” that cycles through 25 languages as Elsa goes from exiled to exhilarated.
