MAJOR Announcement from Disney: "Frozen 2" Is Happening!
No need to tell your kids to "Let It Go," because the Oscar-winning movie Frozen is getting a highly-anticipated sequel. The news was revealed Thursday to Disney's shareholders in San Francisco. It's no surprise that best selling animated movie of all time is getting a new chapter, but the news is sure to elicit a ton of excited shrieks from pint-sized fans across the globe.
Though Disney has not announced a release date, we do know that Kristen Bell is returning as the voice of Princess Anna and Josh Gad will continue to be the voice of the snowman Olaf. Directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck are also staying on for round two. Disney and Pixar Animated Studios Chief Creative Officer credits the directing duo for coming up with the "great idea for a sequel."
Kristen Bell, along with the rest of the returning cast, seems super excited to be back for a second round.
The news comes just as Frozen Fever is hitting theaters this weekend as a short companion piece to Cinderella. It turns out the seven-minute mini-film is just a quick taste of the Frozen franchise to hold fans over until the sequel comes out.
