It probably comes as no surprise to many that the insanely successful Walt Disney Animation Studios film Frozen is in talks for some upcoming sequels. However, fans may find it in a different medium than they would expect. As opposed to a film sequel, Anna and Elsa will be making an appearance at your local bookstore. Learn more after the break.
The Frozen books will be written by author Erica David, who is no stranger to text spin-offs of movies and television properties. David’s body of work includes stories involving the popular Legend of Korra television series on Nickelodeon, the How to Train Your Dragon films, and the novelization of the Mr. Peabody and Sherman film.
Entitled Anna and Elsa #1: All Hail the Queen and Anna and Elsa #2: Memory and Magic, the first two books of this new series are expected to release early next year. Anna and Elsa will focus on the lives of the sisters following the events of the movie and how their relationship has been developing. There are also two more untitled Anna and Elsa books that are currently planned to be released later in the same year.
The books will be published by Random House, who are planing on publishing three to four books in the series every year. Anna and Elsa will be aimed at a younger demographic of course (ages 6-9) much like the majority of David’s previous books.
Despite the upcoming book series, Disney has yet to announce any future plans for addition Frozen feature films. We can ultimately suspect the House of Mouse will not sit too long on this property, as Frozen is the highest grossing animated feature length film in history.
Anna and Elsa #1: All Hail the Queen and Anna and Elsa #2: Memory and Magic will be available on January 6, 2015.
