Disney’s animated smash “Frozen” has earned more than a billion dollars at the box office since its November 2013 release. The movie is also a critical hit, earning an Oscar for Best Animated Feature.
But its soundtrack centerpiece “Let It Go,” which also won an Academy Award for Best Original Song, appears to have started its own cottage industry.
There are myriad cover versions of tune online, and singer Idina Menzel launched a viral wave when she appeared with Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” and performed it with The Roots, using only basic elementary-school musical instruments.
Now there’s a new version of the song out there that takes things a whole lot further. The performance features the voices of 21 classic Disney (and Pixar) characters…and all the voices come from the mouth of one man — Brian Hull — in a single take. No overdubs. One shot. Bam!
Hull posted a notice about his recording on Facebook on Friday. In less than a day it had notched more than 300,000 views on YouTube and was up to more than 425,000 views Saturday night.
The video begins with Hull singing as Captain Barbossa from “Pirates of the Caribbean.”
The talented voice actor moves flawlessly (and from all appearances — without stopping or editing) from voice to voice, from live actors to animated characters. And if you pay close attention to his face, you can see Hull changing its physical appearance, as if he’s morphing into his vision of the characters to help the tune.
Of course, no Disney production would be complete without the voices of Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy. And Hull nails all three of them.
TheBlaze has questions for Hull that we hope to ask in an interview we’ve requested with the talented guy. After we chat, we’ll update this post.
