Exciting news, Aurora is featured in the new Frozen II soundtrack! Aurora's voice appears in the song 'Into The Unknown' performd by Idina Menzel and Aurora, her voice also appears in the trailers, which you can hear/see in this post and in the further posts. The soundtrack is due to be released on November 17th, and the film will premiere on November 22nd.
"The new trailer seems to include a newly-voiced version of ‘Vuelie’, the introductory song which played over the opening credits of the original film. There’s a much darker feel to this new score, and we’re excited to hear more..." says classicfm.com I hope she can make it to the soundtrack this time.
The 22-year-old from Os has a role in the soundtrack that is certainly to be one of this year's biggest films.
The trailer for "Frozen 2" has just been released, and Aksnes contributes with the bright voice one can hear over the dramatic music. Aksnes' record company Petroleum confirms to VG that it is her voice that appears in the trailer. So far, they can't say more about the pop star's involvement in the movie.
Aksnes was also central to an early trailer for the latest "Alien" movie, "Alien Covenant" from 2017, but was not included in the film itself.
She even announced the news of "Frozen 2" on Twitter, linking to the trailer and a simple message: "Listen carefully."
interesting,i wonder if shell get shunned from the soundtrack again?
Whilst Aurora's music has featured in numerous major international movie trailers over the past few years ('Winter Bird' in the 'Equals' trailer, 'Nature Boy' and 'Under the Water' in various 'Alien:Covenant' trailers, her version of 'Baby Mine' in the trailer for the Tim Burton 'Dumbo' remake, etc) often, by the time the finished movie made it to the big screen and the official soundtrack was released, Aurora was sadly missing!
And it seems that (together with 'All is Found' by Kacey Musgraves and 'Lost in the Woods' by Weezer) it is a version of new 'Frozen II' theme 'Into the Unknown' by 'Panic! At the Disco' which will play during the film's closing credits.
But according to this new Bergens Tidende article, Aurora's voice is still very much involved in the final 'Frozen II' cinema release. Indeed, it plays a central role in the movie's plot, as Aurora's is the mysterious and enchanting voice which main character Elsa hears, drawing her and her companions to leave their homeland on their quest northwards 'into the unknown'.
Furthermore, Aurora's management have confirmed to the newspaper that Aurora's voice will indeed be heard in the original AND dubbed foreign language versions of the cinema release.
Given that the first 'Frozen' is currently the biggest grossing animated movie ever, even if this sequel enjoys only a fraction of that success, it still means that very many more people will get to hear Aurora's 'mysterious and enchanting voice' for themselves!
Although the movie doesn't open in cinemas until next week (or later still depending on location) the soundtrack to 'Frozen II' is available from today.
Below (uploaded to YouTube by DisneyMusicVEVO) is Idina Menzel's English language version of 'Into the Unknown' featuring the distinctively crystal-clear vocals of Aurora.
Aurora also features on the following version by the Dutch singer and actress Willemijn Verkaik.
And on this version by the Thai singer and actress Wichayanee Pearklin.
In fact these are just a few, as it seems that there are countless different language versions of 'Into The Unknown' set for the worldwide release of the film. The original 'Frozen' was apparently officially translated and dubbed into no less than 41 languages with several additional unofficial dubbed versions being produced by local independent studios since.
Numerous versions of the song 'Into the Unknown' have already appeared in various languages on YouTube, streaming platforms, etc. While none of the versions which accompany the credits (such as those by 'Panic! At The Disco', Taeyeon, Giuliano Sangiorgi, etc) feature Aurora, all of the versions which form part of the actual storyline of the film, regardless of language, thankfully do all seem to feature Aurora's vocals.
Some more of those versions featuring Aurora are by the following artists, though there are no doubt many more besides:- - Taryn Szpilman (Brazilian Portuguese) - Charlotte Hervieux (French) - Willemijn Verkaik (she sings the German as well as the Dutch version) - Serena Autieri (Italian) - Ana Margarida Encarnação (Portuguese) - Sia Koskina (Greek) - Monika Absolonová (Czech) - Katarzyna Łaska (Polish) - Anna Buturlina [Анна Бутурлина] (Russian) - Gulsim Myrzabekova (Kazakh) - Gisela (Castilian Spanish) - Begüm Günceler (Turkish) - Jelena Gavrilović [Јелена Гавриловић] (Serbian) - Tiêu Châu Như Quỳnh (Vietnamese) - Hye Na Park (Korean) - Takako Matsu (Japanese)
