It has just been announced that Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee are bringing us Frozen 2. This is right on the heels of Frozen Fever, which will be released with Cinderella on March 13th.
The official Frozen 2 announcement!
Winter weather ahead! Frozen 2 is officially in development at Walt Disney Animation Studios with directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee and producer Peter Del Vecho, the Oscar®-winning filmmaking team behind Frozen.
The news was announced at Disney’s Annual Meeting of Shareholders this morning by Bob Iger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company; John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios; and actor Josh Gad, who provides the voice of Olaf from Frozen.
“We enjoyed making Frozen Fever so much and being back in that world with those characters,” said John Lasseter. “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.”
A release date and production details are yet to be announced.
If you read my interview with Chris and Jennifer during the Cinderella Event you will notice that they were hiding this little glorious tidbit. When asked what was next they said they didn’t know. Sneaky! In Frozen Fever they wanted to focus on Elsa more. I wonder if it will be the same for Frozen 2? Or dare I say there may be a wedding? Things were definitely blushing toward that way in Frozen. It would be awesome if Anna and Kristoff got married in Frozen 2 OR if even Elsa found true love! What a positive message that would send.
The possibilities are endless and I for one can’t wait to find out!
