This week: How to write a hit Disney song, with Bobby Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.


Whether you (or a small person you know) are a fan of the animated world of Frozen, it can’t have escaped your notice that songs from the films have been some of the biggest of the last decade, forever cementing their place in Disney legend.

That’s all thanks to the amazingly creative songwriting force of husband and wife team Bobby Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez.


But how do they go about writing such epic tracks?


In this 22m Vanity Fair film, Bobby and Kristen talk about how they came up with their ideas for the songs for Frozen and Frozen II, using classical themes, personal experiences, character arcs from the story - and feedback from their own kids - to craft these award-winning tunes.
