HER musical CV boasts collaborations with Calvin Harris, Diplo and Major Lazer – and now Ellie Goulding can add Sir David Attenborough to the list. I can reveal the unlikely duo have teamed up to record the soundtrack for nature documentary king Sir David’s first Netflix series, Our Planet. Ellie Goulding is working with Sir David Attenborough to record a track for his new series Our Planet After being recruited by him, Ellie has recorded what is being dubbed an “environmental anthem” — entitled In This Together — at London’s Abbey Road Studios. It has been written by Oscar-winning composer Steven Price, who was behind the music in space movie Gravity. Backed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the track is destined to top the charts when the eight-part series drops in 192 countries on April 5. Ellie, an Environment Global Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations, is a long-standing fan of Sir Dave’s — naming his Galapagos documentary, about the Pacific Ocean isles, as her all-time favourite. David personally recruited Ellie and is hoping she can ‘help him bring the environmental cause to the young generation’ A source said: “Ellie has been trying to work with David for years and was gobsmacked when she was asked to do so, for what is going to be his biggest global documentary project yet. “He was well aware of her environmental work, he wanted nobody else and he hopes Ellie and Netflix can help him bring the environmental cause to the young generation.” I have now had a glimpse of the lyrics, which include lines such as: “I can hear the whole world saying it’s now or never. ’Cos it’s not too late if we change our ways and connect the dots.” Ellie and Sir David united in public for the first time for the launch of the Netflix series earlier this month, at an event in London hosted by the World Wildlife Fund. The series is his first step away from the BBC and will show a range of habitats from the remote Arctic wilderness to the vast landscapes of Africa Sir David’s new show is his first major step away from the BBC and will feature his narration over footage of the planet’s most precious and fragile habitats. It was filmed in 50 countries, with 600 members of crew working for more than 3,500 days. Ellie has been hoping to use Sir David’s voice on a track since at least 2014 — when she told The Sun: “I’ve written a lot of songs about relationships and break-ups. I feel like my next album is going to be about the beginning of the universe    and also watching    documentaries and loving David Attenborough — his voice and his knowledge is amazing. Ellie is a United Nations Environment Global Goodwill ambassador and a long-standing fan of Sir David “If I could somehow utilise his voice in a recording with me, it would be awesome — a chance to make a point with my music and his authority.” It’s David’s turn to repay the favour.

In case you somehow missed the global frenzy the first time round in 2013, the musical tale of Snow Queen Elsa and her fearless sister Anna became one of the highest grossing animated movies ever. Fans of Disney’s Frozen are excited for the sequel after the release of the new trailer This week saw the release of the first two-minute trailer for the sequel, which notched up more than 116million views in 24 hours. Frozen 2 will not be out until November, yet social media is buzzing with speculation. Kate Jackson takes a look at the frosty phenomenon and what to expect from the sequel . . . The £1billion phenomenon NOT since Star Wars has a movie dominated the toy market in the way Frozen has, with Elsa dolls out-selling Barbie. Disney is estimated to have been shifting a billion dollars-worth of Frozen related products in both 2014 and 2015. In the US there has been £430million worth of Frozen dolls sold Elsa doll sales, like the soft toy below, were worth £430million in the US alone. And the blue evening dress worn by Elsa as she sings power ballad Let It Go is Disney’s all-time best-selling costume — with Anna’s outfit in second place. Children were named after the tormented ice queen, merchandise spun out of control and Let It Go was belted out in homes and playgrounds across the world. In Britain, 1.45million DVDs were sold in the first three weeks after the film’s release in 2013 and the Frozen Snow Glow Elsa doll became the most popular Christmas toy. The original movie cost £117million to make and Disney is estimated to have shifted over a billion dollars worth of merchandise It didn’t stop there, a year later merchandise continued to increase tenfold, and was still going strong in 2016. Fans could buy everything from Frozen chairs to ride-on toys cars, board games and backpacks. And it was Elsa and Olaf, the naive snowman, who were shifting the goods, rather than the film’s heroine Anna. On top of that, the icy tale proved to be the biggest-selling DVD of this decade, shifting more than three million copies in 2014 alone. Fans could buy everything from Frozen chairs to bikes and backpacks The original Disney movie cost £117million to make and went on to be the highest grossing animated film of all time, taking $1.287billion. It won two Oscars — Best Animated film and Best Original Song — plus a Golden Globe and a Bafta. However, Spencer Lacey Ganus — who played teenage Elsa — earned just £600 for her one-day of work. She ended up with ten times that from royalties. New viewers (if there are any) start here INSPIRED by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen, Frozen is a fairy tale for the modern era, with fierce princesses Elsa and Anna as the heroines. In the original movie the kingdom of Arendelle is trapped in an eternal winter after princess Elsa’s incredible powers are unleashed following her coronation as Queen. Frozen looks at the relationship between sisters Elsa and Anna, as well as the friends they meet along the way such as snowman Olaf Elsa flees, and her sister Anna, her new friend Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven and naive snowman Olaf set off to persuade her to end her self-imposed isolation and save her homeland. Meanwhile, the Duke of Weselton schemes to take control of Arendelle by getting rid of both Elsa and Anna. Elsa is able to conquer all – but only by letting go of her fear.

The mum of two, who is married to actor Dax Shepard, had dreamed of being in a Disney animation since she was four. She said of the movie’s success: “When we were making it, there was a part of me thinking, ‘This is really, really special’.” Idina Menzel: Elsa As Frozen brought global fame, Glee actress Idina was dealing with a divorce. The New Yorker, 47, was balancing the glamour with going to “mediation with my ex, figuring out which days he was visiting our son and the sadness and regret.” When asked a couple of years ago if her son, now nine, was excited about Frozen 2, she admitted: “He doesn’t give a s***.” Jonathan Groff: Kristoff While voicing Kristoff the Broadway actor was also filming the American TV series Looking, in which he got to have raunchy scenes with History Boys actor Russell Tovey. On stage in 2015 he played King George III in Hamilton, which earned him a Tony Award nomination. Jonathan, who stars in Netflix crime drama Mindhunter, describes Frozen as “like crack for children”. Josh Glad: Olaf The voice of the world’s most famous snowman grew up in sunny Florida and didn’t see snow until he was 15. Prior to Frozen, the 37-year-old played tech icon Steve Wozniak in the film Jobs and more recent movies include Murder On The Orient Express and Beauty And The Beast. The dad of two said: “If I had to be remembered for one character, Olaf would be fine.”[/boxout] The trailer clues THE teaser has a dark, fearful tone, starting with Elsa running across a rampaging sea, which many fans have interpreted as her being trapped on a mystical island. The girls are wearing new combat-style outfits and Anna is wielding a sword, which some have likened to a superhero movie. Many fans think that the new film will have underlying messages about climate change after Elsa is seen trying to freeze an ocean And rather than winter, it seems to be autumn — although this may not be in their native Arendelle. Writer and director Jennifer Lee said it will be “bigger, more epic” than Frozen, adding: “They’re going to go far out of Arendelle.” While most fans have been poring over the trailer, they should be paying more attention to the poster. Josh Gad, the voice of snowman Olaf, tweeted: “If you look hard enough, this teaser poster will reveal quite a few surprises (like how pretty a snowflake is up close).” There is speculation that it is set in a different land as we can see an autumnal forest rather than the snowy vistas of Arendelle There has also been speculation that Frozen 2 could send a message about climate change. In the trailer, Elsa is either trying to reduce the temperature of the sea as she crosses it or she may simply be freezing it so she is able to walk across it. It could, though, simply be that this story takes place during a different season or that the characters are in a different land. The other problem with the climate change theory is that Frozen is clearly set before the industrial revolution, so any rise in the Earth’s temperature is unlikely to have been made by humans. The new songs THERE were two versions of mega-hit song Let It Go in the original movie – the empowering one sung by Elsa as she refuses to hide her secret powers any more, and a pop version by Demi Lovato at the end credits. The song Let It Go won a Grammy and an Oscar, and sold more than ten million copies in 2014, making it the year’s fifth best-selling song. Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez have promised at least seven new songs for Frozen 2 Husband and wife team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez have promised at least seven new songs. Director Jennifer Lee reckons one could rival Let It Go’s success. She said in November: “We have a new song that I think is an evolution. It’s our own song.

We’ve been working with them for two years and this song just came and I love it.” [boxout headline=”The snowflake” featured-image=”3762509″]THERE is just one bold image on the new movie’s official poster – this snowflake-like formation with four diamonds. Each diamond contains a different symbol inside it, and fans have speculated that they might stand for the four elements of earth, water, air and fire. Or perhaps, for the four seasons.
