Oscars 2015: 'Frozen' songwriters to pen number for Neil Patrick Harris

'Frozen's' Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez are writing a song for Oscar host Neil Patrick Harris

Do you want to help a showman? For "Frozen" songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, the answer is yes.

The Academy Award-winning husband-and-wife duo, who claimed a statue last year for the original song "Let It Go," are on board to write a new musical number for this year's Oscar show, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris.

Harris revealed the news on Twitter, posting a 30-second-video selfie in which he teased, "What they are doing, I am not at liberty to say. But I can tell you that it won't be a song called 'Let It O,' with a big giant Swarovski crystal O in the background."

Shortly after, Oscar show producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron confirmed that the "Frozen" pair are writing a multimedia musical sequence titled "Moving Pictures," which Harris and unnamed special guests will perform during the Feb. 22 ceremony.

"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," the Lopezes said in a statement. "It's possible he may have been asking us for something else."
