Let’s just hope the new Oscar song from Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez isn’t going to get stuck in our head the way “Let It Go” has. The Frozen songwriting team are writing a song specifically for Oscar host Neil Patrick Harris to perform on the 87th Academy Awards, and Harris and the Oscar producers say the “Moving Pictures” number will be part of a multimedia musical sequence during the February 22, 2015 broadcast.

“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 producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron. “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,” said the Lopezes. “We are having so much fun collaborating, and have even enjoyed weaving our experience as Oscar nominees into the song.”
