As if there was ever any doubt that the studio wasn’t about to let go of the world of Frozen, Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger confirmed there will be a Frozen 2. The decision is a real no-brainer for the studio following the success of the 2013 box office blockbuster that pulled in $1.2 billion worldwide during its theatrical release. Iger made the announcement along with Disney/Pixar CCO John Lasseter and actor Josh Gad (the voice of Olaf) during Disney’s annual shareholders meeting.
Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee are back on board to direct the sequel, and Peter Del Vecho is back as a producer. Disney did not reveal the story, cast, or expected release date for Frozen 2. However, for those anxious to return to Arendelle, the Frozen Fever short will play in front of screenings of Cinderella in theaters beginning on March 13, 2015.
“We enjoyed making Frozen Fever so much and being back in that world with those characters,” said 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.”
And Kristen Bell chimed in on Twitter with her opinion of the Frozen 2 news:
