Let It Go In The Real World

If there’s one song most of the film community knows, it’s Let It Go from Disney’s Frozen. Like every film with characters who break into song, the characters have instrumentation to accompany them. Where does that come from? 

Most of the time, there’s no in world explanation to the sudden piano. This scene in Frozen takes place in the mountains, so there’s no way there’s someone sitting in the snow drifts with a piano just waiting for our ice queen to break out into song.

So, what would Elsa really have been hearing out there when she has her moment of revelation? Check out this video from WalkingTacosDubs that removes the music and puts her in a realistic environment, complete with echoes. Even when the camera moves away from her, her voice changes based on the distance. Talk about a creative take on an iconic song.
