Frozen star Idina Menzel has promised the UK she will not sing the film’s hit anthem Let It Go on her next visit to the country.
The Broadway actress, who made the song famous as she voiced ice queen Elsa in the 2013 Disney animation, said she knew that many British fans - or at least their parents - had been subjected to the uplifting earworm a few too many times.
She vowed not to bring it back to life as she appeared on ITV’s Good Morning Britain on Wednesday to talk about sequel, Frozen 2, due to hit cinemas in November 2019.
Commenting on visiting the UK nearer the time, she told presenters Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid: “I won’t sing Let It Go because I know you are sick of it.”
Menzel will reprise her role voicing the magical queen in the new release, with Kristen Bell returning as princess Anna.
Asked about the new movie’s script and score, the 45-year-old admitted its creators would struggle to come up with a track to rival Let It Go.
“We are still working on the story,” she said. “But I’m resigning myself to the fact that, as great as the writers are, you can probably never beat that.”
Morgan attempted to prove her wrong by doing his own impression of the singer belting out the chorus.
While he described the reception in the studio as “silent horror”, Menzel politely conceded he was “not tone deaf”.
But his rendition proved to be too much for early morning viewers, with Samantha Patrick responding on Twitter: “Piers, please don’t try to sing.”
