During the annual Walt Disney Company shareholders meeting, Disney announced that they plan to produce a sequel to the box office smash Frozen.
The announcement was made by Pixar’s John Lasseter, Disney CEO Bob Iger and actor Josh Gad.
Directors of Frozen, Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, will both return to develop the sequel along with producer Peter Del Vecho. It has also been confirmed that Josh Gad will return to the role of Olaf. Other details about the film are unknown at the time, but both Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell are expected to reprise their roles as Elsa and Anna.
Frozen, which was released in 2013, became the highest grossing animated film of all time, making over $1.25 billion on a $150 million budget.
On top of that, the film’s original soundtrack topped music charts, with the song “Let it Go” winning the Oscar for Best Original Song. At the Oscars, Frozen also took home a well-deserved Best Animated Feature award as well.
This weekend, a Frozen short film entitled Frozen Fever will be shown before Disney’s Cinderella.
