Ever since its November 2013 release, Frozen has invaded the lives of millions across the globe, breaking box office records. Between ‘Let It Go’ smashing music charts, Elsa and Anna appearing on the ABC series Once Upon a Time, and, of course, all of the merchandising and Disney Parks integration, Frozen has become unstoppable. It seemed curious as to why there had not been any foreseeable plans announced yet for a sequel (other than a book series which will pick up from where the film left off.) However, this seems to have changed. Hit the jump for more details.
In an interview with The Telegraph, the voice of Queen Elsa, Idina Menzel reveals some details about the future of Frozen. While discussing her career, she discloses some information about several Frozen-related projects, which includes a soon-to-be released six minute short entitled, Frozen Fever; a stage show adaptation, and a “movie” that Menzel references. While she has signed on for the other projects, she confirms that she is not doing the stage show:
“They’re all in the works, ha ha!”
But will she be involved in all of them?
“Ah, yeah sure… Not the stage show – I don’t know what will happen with that – but the movie hopefully. We’ll see. I’m just going along for the ride.”
The stage show is not anything new. There are many Disney films that have been turned into stage shows: Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Mary Poppins, and most recently, Aladdin. It only seems logical that their most valuable property as of late also receives the “stage show” treatment.
Considering that a film short does not necessarily constitute a movie, we can assume that what Menzel refers to is the highly anticipated sequel to the animated film juggernaut, Frozen. After all, Disney does have an untitled film project due for release in November of 2018. Time will tell if this is the sequel to the monster box office hit.
