Frozen 2 is officially happening!
Disney has announced that a sequel to the highly popular animated film will go ahead. The good news was delivered at the company’s annual shareholders meeting in San Francisco on Thursday.
John Lasseter, Chief Executive Officer at Walt Disney Animation Studios made the announcement saying the team “had so much fun make Frozen Fever (the short) that it was excited to make a sequel.”
They have revealed that there isn’t yet a release date or a plot line figured out, but the news that it’s happening at all is exciting enough for us!
It was only a few months ago that Director Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee insisted that a second film was not in development.
However it comes as no surprise that they have decided to go ahead with a sequel considering they made $1.219 billion at the box office, making it the top-grossing animated movie of all time!
Kristen Bell, who voices Anna, also confirmed the news on her twitter account.
