“Frozen” has been cited by critics as Disney’s best animated film in a generation. And there’s a Eurovision connection. But only if you plan on watching the Russian version – “Cold Heart”. Not content with all his recurring appearances at Eurovision, the 2006 runner up and 2008 winner, Dima Bilan has moved into movies, lending his vocals to the character of Prince Hans. You can see hear him in action at the 43 second point in the trailer below (click here if you want the English one).

As with all Disney films, “Frozen” is crammed full of songs. But Prince Hans, and consequently Dima, only gets the opportunity to sing once, the duet “Love is an Open Door”. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find Dima’s rendition online, so y’all will have to make do with the English one for the time being.

A pleasant little ditty, don’t you agree? Hopefully, the Russian version pops up on Youtube soon. I’m dieing to hear Dima’s interpretation. However, while Dima always came out on top, or very close, at Eurovision, this time he’s gotten the short straw songwise. Because leaving the cinema there’ll only be one song on your mind – the brilliant, classic in-waiting, “Let it Go”. Believe me, I’m speaking from experience.

So what do y’all think? Are you jealous that only the Russian audiences will get to hear Dima’s dulcet tones? And does anyone else suspect that Zlata Ognevich will be raging that she didn’t get to be Disney royalty first?

*I purposely haven’t gone into detail on the plot and the role of Dima’s character, so please don’t leave any spoilers in the comments.*

Thanks for this post.
I’ve readed in a russian newspapper that Dima will sing more songs in the film… at 17 of December will come out a cd with all songs (10 song in russian version of the film) and Dima is the creator (and maybe the singer ) of all of them.
