Disney+ has announced a new documentary on Idina Menzel, the actress/singer best known to Disney fans as Queen Elsa, will air on the streamer this December.
The documentary film “Idina Menzel: Which Way to the Stage?,” follows the singer’s path to realizing her lifelong dream of headlining a concert at Madison Square Garden in her hometown of New York City.
It includes footage of Menzel in her most notable stage performances, “Rent” and “Wicked,” as well as interviews with family, friends, co-stars and creatives. The press release says it will also chronicle her personal experiences with in vitro fertilization.
“We made this documentary to show firsthand how important it is to pursue your passions and lean on those around you in times of hardship,” said Menzel in the release.
“This documentary was a joy to make, and I hope it resonates with my fans and new audiences alike who find themselves balancing motherhood, work and marriage while chasing their own dreams and inspires others to keep pushing forward.”
Menzel became a Disney Legend in a ceremony at D23 Expo last month. She also recently released her children’s book “Loud Mouse” via Disney-Hyperion imprint, and hosted the live broadcast of “Harmonious Live” on Disney+ this summer.
“Idina Menzel: Which Way to the Stage?” will debut on Disney+ on Friday, December 9, 2022.
Anne McCabe directed the doc, and Disney Branded Television and Ideal Partners (House of Z) produce for Disney.
