Frozen 2 is in the works, the Walt Disney Company revealed today.
The all-but-inevitable announcement was made by Walt Disney Animation Studios chief creative officer John Lasseter and Disney CEO/chairman Bob Iger at the company’s annual shareholders meeting in San Francisco.
Frozen directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck are developing the project, but have not been confirmed to be directing. No release date has been set, but clearly Disney is not wasting any time on pushing out a sequel to their highest-grossing animated feature of all-time. As yet, the only actor confirmed to be reprising their role is Josh Gad, the voice of the snowman Olaf, who was present at the stockholder meeting.
Gad joked that the Frozen sequel would be called Frozen 2: Rogue One, in reference to the Star Wars spin-off movie, whose title was also announced at today’s meeting.
The new Frozen short Frozen Fever will screen in front of Disney’s live-action Cinderella, which will released in theaters tomorrow.
