'Frozen 2' deleted song: Watch the storyboard animation for Kristen Bell's cut song 'Home'
Even the sounds of Arendelle royalty aren't immune to the cutting room floor.
While Sterling K. Brown revealed to Yahoo last year that his musical number was cut from Frozen 2, so was a track by the popular co-lead Anna, voiced by Kristen Bell.
The storyboard animation for that song, "Home," will be available on the upcoming home entertainment release for the Disney mega-hit, but for now you can watch it exclusively above.
"Wandering through the town with everyone doing all of their stuff, Somewhere in my heart I feel, I've not yet done enough, Somewhere in my heart I feel, I've not yet done enough," Anna sings in a love letter to their hometown of Arendelle. " For these people I know, this place that I love so, my home, my home."

As Frozen 2 songwriters (and current Academy Award nominees) Bobby and Kristen Lopez told Collider, "Home" was originally intended to the film's musical opener. The idea was the song played off the fact Anna had the biggest "happily ever after" ending to 2013's Frozen, and thus had the most to lose in the early goings of the sequel.
"The subtext of it was, 'I am super scared to lose all this stuff. … All my family,'" Bobby Lopez explained. "And what we realised then was, even though there was some of that that was right, we had completely ignored setting up the other characters. Elsa and Kristoff and Olaf, and we needed to lose that."
The song was eventually replaced by "Some Things Never Change," which Anna opened before it segued to Kristoff, Olaf and Elsa.
"Everyone got a little verse and we didn’t have to do any extra exposition that slowed down the beginning," Bobby said.
Frozen 2 comes home, with a sing-along version and all-new extras, on Digital in 4K Ultra HD™, HD on 16 March, and on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™ and DVD on 30 March.
