Frozen Fan-Made Song: Is This How The Movie Should Have Ended?
WARNING: The following clip contains MAJOR SPOILERS for Disney's Frozen. In fact, this whole article deals solely with the film's final act. So unless you have already seen this magnificent movie musical, please turn back now!
Here at Cinema Blend, we fell hard for Disney's Frozen. Katey gave it four stars. Kelly praised its progressive depiction of true love, and Eric called "Let It Go" one of the years Best Movie Music Moments. As for me, I proudly listed it in my Top 10. Still, when we rehashed the fantastic Frozen from start to finish amongst ourselves, one flaw we all agreed on was home much the movie cried out for one final song. Well, all hail them Internets, because a talented pair has given us a special Christmas gift of the finale song we dreamed of.
io9 shared the above video, which was an online collaboration of two big Frozen fans. The first, Jovan Bradley, has been singing the praises (and songs) of Frozen on his tumblr Musical Catbug, and so he wrote his own lyrics to a final song, along with instructions on how to sing it there. Based on the first song Anna sings, "Do You Want To Build A Snowman," he created a reprise, and suggested it could have been sung when Anna sacrifices herself to save Elsa from the evil Hans' death stroke. From there, Scarlet-Glow recorded the song--with a pretty impressive impression of Idina Menzel--and paired it with some pirated moments of the movie to show how it could have worked. The results are what you see above, and they are pretty fantastic.
Here are the lyrics:
"Yes I wanna build a snowman… I'm sorry that it took so long… I didn't know I needed you…I really do… and now you're gone… please…just ask me once more… just one more time…I promise I'll open the door …yes I wanna build a snowman…"
Aside from underlining the movie's theme of sisterhood, this reprise also nicely ties together "Do You Want to Build A Snowman" and "Love is an Open Door" through its lyrics. Pretty clever. My only qualm--and it is a minor one considering this is a fan-made addendum--is that this execution might have suggested that Elsa's confession saves Anna from her icy fate, when of course it is Anna's act of selflessness and love for her sister. But really, this is beautiful in its understanding of the film and how it accents this touching moment of loss and reunion.
For reference (and fun), here's the original "Do You Want to Build A Snowman?"
