Idina Menzel Hopes to Star in the Frozen Musical
The actress mirrors costar Kristen Bell's excitement over the film's Broadway adaptation
Idina Menzel isn’t quite ready to let it go.
The actress, who was the voice of Elsa in Disney’s hit movie Frozen – and turned the film’s anthem, “Let It Go,” into a worldwide sensation – would love to reprise her role as the blonde princess for the Broadway rendition, she said at Variety‘s Power of Women luncheon on Friday.
“Yes! Sure! Absolutely!” Menzel told Cosmopolitan.com of wanting to play the part live.
Menzel, who is currently starring in the musical If/Then, isn’t the only one excited for a possible onstage reunion. Although Disney has yet to announce the cast of the upcoming musical, actress Kristen Bell has already shown interest in playing her part as Elsa’s sister, Anna.
Whether she returns as Elsa or not, Menzel is forever grateful for the support she has received for her role in the record-breaking animated film. “It was such a dream of mine to be in the Disney family and become an animated queen,” she says.
But as fans continue to go crazy for anything and everything Frozen, the actress admits her 4-year-old son Walker would rather channel another iconic character.
“We’re supposed to go to a Frozen event, and I thought he would want to dress up as something from the movie,” she says. “And I asked him, ‘Who?’ He said he wanted to dress up like the Michael Jackson zombie from ‘Thriller.’ ”
