Idina Menzel: ‘Frozen’ Movie A Familiar Role For Former Wicked Witch

Idina Menzel has come a long way since focusing on Broadway shows like Wicked.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Disney released a trailer for Frozen, an animated movie featuring Idina Menzel as one of the main characters.

Speaking about her role in Wicked, Idina Menzel explains how she approaches a role:

“When I’m doing my thing — when I’m so involved in it — I can’t remember what I did, so that’s why you have people around you to tell you. You just lose yourself in what you are doing. And, those are the best moments.”

The story for Frozen has been been swirling around the movie industry for quite sometime. In 2010, Frozen was shelved due to script problems. Some people thought the story would be based upon the original Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen, but that’s not the case.

The basic plot for Frozen involves a prophecy trapping a kingdom in eternal winter. The main character Anna, as voiced by Kristen Bell, must team up with mountain Kristoff to find her ice-hearted sister the Snow Queen, who is voiced by Idina Menzel. They desire that the Snow Queen put an end to the icy spell but the pair must battle Everest-like extremes, mystical creatures and magic in order to save the kingdom. But apparently the Snow Queen is holding a secret back for why the icy spell has trapped everone. So it almost sounds like Idina Menzel is reprising her role of the Wicked Witch of the West, where she wasn’t quite as bad you’d normally believe.

Idina Menzel is mostly known for her voice so it’d make sense to be a voice actress in a 3D animated movie. But if anything Idina Menzel is more known for her singing voice so she’ll be part of the Frozen soundtrack, featured in three songs called “For The First Time In Forever,” “Let It Go,” and a reprisal version of the first song. The second song will also feature Idina Menzel as the only singer.
