Frozen Director Now Apologizes to Parents for "Let It Go"
Hey parents! "Frozen" director Jennifer Lee is really, really sorry about those songs your kids are still obsessed with from that Oscar-winning blockbuster of hers.
You’d think the woman behind the most successful animated film of all time would be thrilled that kids are still so enchanted by it more than a year later. But Jennifer Lee, the director of "Frozen," says she now finds herself apologizing to parents whose kids are still obsessed with the film and its song "Let It Go."
"A year ago, I'd meet people who, when they found out who I was, they'd say,‘Oh, we love the songs! We sing them all the time.’ Now they’re like, ‘Yep, we’re still listening to those songs,'” Lee said in an interview. “I’ve gone from, ‘Thank you,’ to, ‘Sorry!'”
"Frozen" created a major sensation upon its release last November, a day before Thanksgiving day 2013. The movie earned Lee an Oscar the next year for best animated feature, and spawned countless parodies and lip sync videos of the film's hit songs. The popular anthem was sung by Idina Menzel in the film and went on to be a worldwide hit.
