DISNEY CHANNEL AND DISNEY XD STARS PERFORM NEW POP ARRANGEMENT OF "DO YOU WANT TO BUILD A SNOWMAN?" FROM DISNEY'S "FROZEN"; MUSIC VIDEO PREMIERES SUNDAY, JULY 20 ON DISNEY CHANNEL

Weekend Programming Event also Features Comedic Moments with Olaf in "Frozen's Olaf-A-Lots" and a Saturday Sing-Along to Six "Frozen" Songs

Twenty-six stars of Disney's hit programming for kids and tweens perform a new interpretation of the song "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" from Disney's Academy Award-winning animated film "Frozen."

Steven Vincent, Vice President Music and Soundtracks, Disney Channel, said, "We have a remarkably talented group who, in their approach to this cover song, kept the heartfelt beauty of the original but transformed it into a duet as an ode to friendship." He continued, "They were asked to sing live with no pre-recording, so the session became like a big party with a group of friends singing their hearts out and having fun together to deliver a project that ultimately encourages young viewers to express their feelings, to participate in interactive ways and to share their creativity and talents."

A weekend of related programming events include the affable snowman Olaf (the voice of Josh Gad) hosting the evening of new episodes ("Dog With A Blog," "Girl Meets World," "Phineas and Ferb" and "Wander Over Yonder") on FRIDAY, JULY 18 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET/PT); and a Saturday Sing-Along to songs from the "Frozen" soundtrack ("Do You Want to Build a Snowman?," "For the First Time in Forever," "Love is an Open Door," "Let It Go," "Reindeers Are Better Than People," and "In Summer"), SATURDAY, JULY 19 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel.

Recorded and filmed at the Jim Henson Studios in Hollywood, Disney Channel's "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" song and music video features lead vocals by Sabrina Carpenter ("Girl Meets World"), Rowan Blanchard ("Girl Meets World"), Kelli Berglund ("Lab Rats"), Piper Curda ("I Didn't Do It"), Jordan Fisher ("Teen Beach Movie"), Grace Phipps ("Teen Beach Movie"), Olivia Holt ("I Didn't Do It"), Tyrel Jackson Williams ("Lab Rats"), Leigh-Allyn Baker ("The 7D," "Good Luck Charlie") and Kevin Chamberlin ("Jessie"), with featured harmonies by Dylan Riley Snyder ("Kickin' It"), Peyton Clark ("I Didn't Do It") and Jake Short ("Mighty Med").

Disney Channel's "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" song was arranged and produced by Grammy-nominated Marco Marinangeli ("Take My Hand: Songs from the 100 Acre Wood").

Globally, Disney's Academy Award-winning "Frozen" is the fifth highest-grossing film and the highest grossing animated film of all time. Its Home Entertainment debut is the biggest digital release ever and in physical units is one of the best-selling home entertainment titles of the last decade.
