All there may be left to do now could be wait, and hope that when this film drops on Disney Plus, it’ll include some powerhouse anthems sung by a sure iconic voice (Disney, is it an excessive amount of to ask to provide Idina Menzel and James Marsden a duet about operating Andalasia collectively?). Your transfer, Disney.
