Sequel to Frozen
They tweeted out, “Forecast: Winter weather ahead! @DisneyAnimation developing #Frozen2 with Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee.”
Actually, Variety was the first source to report that there would be a second Frozen film, but at the time there was no release date given or production details. Yes, it’s not really brand new information that there will be a second installment of the hugely successful Disney flick, but until yesterday, there was no official word.
As soon as the news was announced, Kristen Bell jumped on Twitter to show her excitement over the sequel. She even posted an adorable photo of herself posing with a bag of ice with the caption, “Dreams really do come 2!!!” However, this is not the only bit of news fans should be getting revved up about. Walt Disney Animation Studios is also taking a look back at Arendelle this Spring when they release the short film titled, “Frozen Fever”.
This short film will once again feature Buck and Lee, as well as producer Peter Del Vecho and songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. You may recall that the Lopezs both won the Academy Award for “Let It Go” back in 2014.
According to the studio, the “Frozen Fever” plot will be simple. When it comes to the premise, they said, “It’s Anna’s birthday and Elsa and Kristoff are determined to give her the best celebration ever, but Elsa’s icy powers may put more than just the party at risk.” Then, John Lasseter, who is the Chief Creative Officer of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios released a statement about the project that said, “We enjoyed making Frozen Fever so much and being back in that world with those characters. 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.”
The first “Frozen” film earned $1.27 billion worldwide and is the most successful animated film of all time. Are you excited about the sequel?
