Frozen is set to return to cinemas with a sing-along version of the hit film.

The Disney animated musical movie, which stars Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel and Jonathan Groff, will be back on the big screen on February 7 in the UK, with a bouncing snowflake accompanying the song lyrics at the bottom of the screen.

Tony Chambers, head of studio sales and distribution for Disney EMEA and UK/Ireland, said: "Frozen's music is at the core of its critical and box-office success.

"With an Academy Award nomination for Best Song, a chart-topping soundtrack and the multi-language Let It Go a YouTube worldwide phenomenon, it makes perfect sense to create and release a sing-a-long version for everyone to enjoy."

Based loosely on Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen, Frozen has already become one of Disney's biggest hits.

The movie, which won the Golden Globe for best animated film and has received two Oscar nominations, has made over 669 million US dollars (£407 million) at the box office worldwide, making it the second highest grossing non-Pixar Disney Animation title of all time after The Lion King.

It is also one of Disney's most successful films, taking fourth spot in the list of original animated films of all time after The Lion King, Finding Nemo and Up.

Frozen, which will be released on DVD, Blu-ray and on-demand on March 31 in the UK, is also set to be adapted into a stage musical in the future.
