So Where Will The Music Take Us This Time?
“The songs and score of ‘Frozen 2’ reflect the growth of the characters and the deepening of their story,” stated Jennifer Lee, one of the film’s directors and the chief creative officer at WDAS. “The music is fun but emotional, personal yet powerful, intimate but also epic. Kristen, Bobby and Christophe have definitely outdone themselves and taken the music to brave new heights.”
YUP ~ SHE’S TALKING ABOUT THE DYNAMIC DUO OF KRISTEN ANDERSON-LOPEZ & ROBERT LOPEZ
The brilliant musical couple has seven all-new original songs written into the Frozen 2 script.
“From the beginning of our collaboration with Jennifer Lee, Chris Buck and Peter Del Vecho, everything we’ve created has come from big questions – what is the story that we all as artists, individually and collectively, need to tell?” said Anderson-Lopez. “Bobby and I approach the story through the lens of which moments of our story lead to big emotions—feelings so strong our characters can no longer talk but need to sing.”
Added Lopez, “Every song has to take a character on a journey.”

SO, LET’S TALK ORIGINAL SCORE
Christophe Beck, the mastermind behind the magical score for Frozen, returns to Arendelle for the continuation of the story. Beck weaves a cohesive musical thread throughout the film by incorporating elements from the original songs into the new score (I guess he just couldn’t “Let it Go” ~ sorry, I had to….). By utilizing traditional Norwegian instruments and the Norwegian female choir Cantus, Beck showcases the unique setting of the film – “magical, but rooted in real tradition.” The new score will also reflect the evolution of the characters.
“Similar to how Elsa and Anna have grown up since the last film, the new score has also matured and introduces more sophisticated musical concepts and thematic elements,” he said. “The story’s emotional arc is more complex and intense than the first so I wanted the score’s thematic concepts and instrumentation to follow suit. I enjoyed exploring extreme dynamic contrasts, harmonic complexity, intricate textures with vibrant colors, and hugely expressive melodic moments.”
