Neil Patrick Harris better know how to “Let It Go.”
Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, the Oscar-winning team behind Disney’s Frozen, will pen an original musical number for the awards show host to perform on the Dolby Theatre stage on Feb. 22.
Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron made the announcement Tuesday morning that the two are currently constructing “an original multimedia musical sequence” called “Moving Pictures.” Harris also broke the news via Twitter, using the social platform’s new 30-second video feature.

“On the heels of the international success of last year’s Frozen and their Oscar for ‘Let It Go,’ we couldn’t be happier to have Kristen and Bobby Lopez write an incredibly special song for Neil Patrick Harris and special guests to perform this year on the Oscar stage,” said Zadan and Meron in a statement. “YouTube, get ready!”
“We love the Oscars® and have always been huge Neil Patrick Harris fans, so when he asked us to write him a song for this year’s show we said, ‘Yes!’ before he could finish the sentence — it’s possible he may have been asking us for something else,” added the Lopezes. “We are having so much fun collaborating and have even enjoyed weaving our experience as Oscar nominees into the song.”
The Oscars will be held on Feb. 22 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood and will be televised live on ABC at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
