Note: This is a review of the original motion picture soundtrack to Disney’s Frozen. Reviews for the film are under embargo until later this month.
El Capitan Theatre moviegoers will kick off holiday celebrations early with an exclusive advance engagement of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen, beginning five days before the film’s nationwide release. El Capitan is frozen over this holiday season, welcoming guests into a snow-covered wonderland — complete with ice-capped opera boxes and a flurry of snowflakes. Frozen showings, which will run Nov. 22, 2013, to Jan. 5, 2014, will be preceded by ice carving performance artists on stage, as well as Frozen characters Anna and Elsa in their first live-on-stage appearances.
Earlier today, Amazon.com began listing the soundtrack for ‘Toy Story of Terror,’ the Toy Story Toons Halloween animated special, which was scored by long-time Pixar collaborator Michael Giacchino. You can find the track list below.
What starts out as a fun road trip for the Toy Story gang takes an unexpected turn for the worse when the trip detours to a roadside motel. After one of the toys goes missing, the others find themselves caught up in a mysterious sequence of events that must be solved before they all suffer the same fate in this ‘Toy Story of Terror!’
We have previously shared news that the original motion picture soundtrack for Disney’s upcoming animated film, Frozen, would be a two disc set, featuring an original score composed by Christophe Beck with new songs by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.
Up until now, however, other than previously announced details such as Elsa’s ‘Let it Go’ (performed by Idina Menzel) and Olaf’s ‘In the Summer’ (performed by Josh Gad) along with a supposed leaked track list, there has been very little in the way of additional details.
