Idina Menzel Promotes Encore by Idina!

Idina Menzel has been pretty busy promoting her new clothing line, Encore by Idina. She spoke with PEOPLE, stopped by The Kelly Clarkson Show and Hoda and Jenna this past week and also went live on QVC’s Instagram as well as a pop-up appearance on QVC. I created a Youtube playlist with those videos, so you can catch up here:

“We’ve Got Tonight” by Idina and Charles Kelley

 

“We’ve Got Tonight (Live)” by Idina Menzel and Charles Kelley is available now as part of the release of the Kenny Rogers concert tribute, “Kenny Rogers: All In For The Gambler – All-Star Concert Celebration”. The concert was filmed way back in 2017 and finally aired on CBS in September 2021. The CD/DVD is available on Amazon and the song is available on streaming platforms, including Apple Music. I absolutely loved this performance and I’m so glad it’s finally available!

Idina Menzel Makes Fashion Debut With ENCORE

Idina Menzel is getting into the fashion business! A preview of her new sportswear collection, Encore by Idina Menzel, is now available on QVC.com! Encore by Idina Menzel is a collection of chic yet easy-to-wear styles that transition seamlessly from one activity to the next. Idina will appear on QVC May 23 from 4 to 5 PM to launch the collection, which features jumpsuits, hooded rompers, ballet cardigans, fit and flare dresses, high-waisted crop jeans and French terry zip-front hoodies and pants ranging from $40 to $100.

The signature piece is the “Swing Jumpsuit”. Idina spoke with WWD about the collection and shared: “The swing is the person in theater who I respect the most and is the person who has to learn every role. For me, it’s a hooded jumpsuit. If you really wanted to, you can wear it to bed and wake up, throw on sneakers and get your kids to school, throw heels in your car, and if you have to go for drinks later, you can go out.” Read the full interview here and shop the collection here!

 

‘Disenchanted’ Will Stream Thanksgiving 2022!

‘Disenchanted’ Will Stream Thanksgiving 2022!

Disney has announced that Disenchanted, the sequel to 2007’s Enchanted, will be released on Disney+ this Thanksgiving! As we know, Idina Menzel will reprise her role as Nancy Tremaine! Amy Adams, Patrick Dempsey and James Marsden are also reprising their original roles. James Marsden recently told PEOPLE, “It was a crime that in the first film, she’s in a movie musical and you have Idina Menzel, and she doesn’t sing a note. We’ve raised the bar by giving her some big, Stephen Schwartz, Alan Menken … I can’t say too much about what she sings, but original music, I’ll say.”

Picking up 15 years after Enchanted left off, Disenchanted will follow Giselle as she “moves to the suburb of Monroeville with Robert and their teenage daughter Morgan, where she must juggle the challenges that come with a new home and discover what happily ever after truly means to her and her new family.

Here’s the first official still from the movie:
