Disney confirms ‘Frozen 2’ is now in the works

Original co-directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck will be both involved in the sequel

Disney has officially announced that Frozen 2 is in the works.

Released in November 2013, Disney’s Frozen went on to become the highest-grossing animated film of all time with global box office takings exceeding $1.274 billion (£820 million). It also won two Academy Awards: Best Animated Picture and Best Original Song for Let It Go.

Disney has recently revived its characters for a seven-minute short film titled Frozen Fever, which will be shown in cinemas before screenings of Disney’s new live-action Cinderella film when it opens on March 27. Now the Mouse House has confirmed that a feature-length sequel is coming. Original co-directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck will be both involved.

“We enjoyed making Frozen Fever so much and being back in that world with those characters,” Disney Pixar’s Chief Creative Officer Jon Lasseter said at Disney’s shareholder meeting in San Francisco, California yesterday (March 12). “Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck have come up with a great idea for a sequel and you will be hearing a lot more about it and we’re taking you back to Arendelle. We are so excited about that.”

However, Disney has yet to announce a release date for the sequel or reveal any details about its plot. In the meantime, watch a trailer for Frozen Fever here.
