Just a short while ago on THE TONIGHT SHOW, Jimmy Fallon & The Roots were joined by Idina Menzel to perform the Academy Award-winning song "Let It Go" from Disney's FROZEN... on classroom instruments. The complete song, done in a manner far more loose and entertaining than the Oscars version (and without John Travolta being an idiot), can be heard below...

FROZENFROZEN took home the Oscar for Best Animated Film this year, and will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD on March 18th. As I've been teasing here on the site these past few weeks, I'll have some exclusive, Rock Father-style FROZEN content coming very soon, the fruits of my recent visit (on Mickey's dime) to Walt Disney Animation Studios, where I was fortunate enough to sit down with FROZEN producer Peter Del Vecho, writer/director Jennifer Lee, and director Chris Buck. More coming this Friday.

Additionally, on the same day it won two Academy Awards, FROZEN, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 53rd feature film, crossed $1 billion at the worldwide box office. The biggest non-sequel animated film ever released and the second biggest animated film of all time globally, FROZEN has earned an estimated $388.8 million at the domestic box office and $611.5 million internationally for a global total of $1,000.3 million. It is The Walt Disney Studios’ seventh release to reach the $1 billion mark, joining MARVEL's THE AVENGERS and IRON MAN 3, Disney’s second and fourth PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN films, Disney•Pixar’s TOY STORY 3, and Disney’s ALICE IN WONDERLAND.
