We love anytime Jonathan Groff and the recent EGOT-ed Robert Lopez collaborate, and this is no exception!

The Frozen composer recently had his puppet show that he co-wote, 1001 Nights: A Story About Loving Stories, premiere last week in Hotlanta, Georgia, and as if by the magic of a genie, our wishes have been granted!

Even though he's not in the production at all, Jonathan sang a snippet of the song, Come Away!

Ch-ch-check out the song that will show you a whole new world…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

It's time for a little fantasy!

Disney has got another animated fairytale in the works … and some very LOVELY ladies have signed on to provide the voices for the leads.

Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen (The Little Mermaid was loosely based on this tale as well), the House of Mouse is prepping for their version of the story called Frozen. It's the story of a young girl who takes on a perilous quest to defeat an evil Snow Queen, who has kept her kingdom in the cold for far too long!

The role of the Wicked queen will be voiced by none other than Tony Award winning Idina Menzel, while Kristen Bell has been cast to be the voice of the brave, young Anna.

Disney also has

Creators Of South Park Get Mormon For Broadway!

Filed under: TV NewsBroadway BabiesDisney

This is going to EFFING RIDICULOUS.

We can't wait!!

The brilliant creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, have always infused their hysterical comedy series with musical numbers and songs, so it's no surprise that they've been working on a stage musical, but one based on the Mormon faith?!

Apparently so!

The team has collaborated with Avenue Q creator Robert Lopez, director Jason Moore and producers Scott Rudin and Anne Garefino on The Book of Mormon, which will revolve around two Mormon missionaries attempting to spread their faith in Uganda, interwoven with the story of Mormon founder Joseph Smith!

WTF?? We know!

But for all the Mormons in the world whose hearts just stopped, you can relax for the most part - despite their usual dose of political incorrectness and satire, the HIGHlarious writers have no ill will for the faith!

Stone asserts that none of their work, especially South Park, would never work "if it didn't have a heart."

"We learned a long time ago that if something is cynical just for the sake of being cynical, it won't last too long."

Parker agrees:

"There's a lot of Mormon stuff in our work because Matt and I both grew up around a lot of Mormons. I've never met a Mormon I didn't like. They're really nice people. They're so Disney. They're so Rodgers and Hammerstein. We're bigger authorities on The Book of Mormon than most Mormons. Broadway is big and scary to us. And by no means are we coming in to kick Broadway's ass. We're pretty sure we're going to get our asses kicked. But Bobby and Scott and Jason have a lot of the theater experience, so with their help, maybe we won't fall flat on our faces."

As bizarre as the concept is, we're confident that these guys will pull it off! They've got a great team assembled and rarely miss their mark.

What do U think?? Are U excited for The Book of Mormon??
