Brace Yourself, FROZEN 2 Is Coming

FrozencastIf you are like me, then your kid has just started to let you listen to something other than the Frozen soundtrack in the car and they have stopped watching Frozen on a continuous cycle at home. Leave it to Disney to make this only a brief respite from all things Frozen.

Another tidbit of information to come from the Disney shareholders meeting is that Frozen 2 is officially in development at the studio. Directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee are set to return to helm the sequel. No cast confirmed as of yet, but since Josh Gad appeared at the meeting to make the announcement, one assumes that he will be returning to voice Olaf the Snowman.

The first film’s smash success caught Disney by surprise, as the company’s typically savvy merchandising arm had a hard time keeping Frozen merchandise on store shelves. The film went on to become the highest grossing animated film of all time and win Oscars for Best Animated Film and Best Song. I, myself, am a fan of the film, but not as much as my five-year old daughter is. The film has become a cultural touchstone for her the same way the first Star Wars films were for my generation.

No plot details are known nor is a release date is set, but I’d imagine that it will correspond to the completion of turning the Epcot’s Maelstrom ride into a Frozen themed attraction (rumored to be completed in 2016), part of a rumored permanent Frozen installation in Epcot’s Norway Pavillion (No date yet known). That is cold comfort for parents who will now be bombarded by pestering kids asking them when Frozen 2 will be coming out. To tide them over, take them to Cinderella this weekend, so they can see the new short film, Frozen Fever, which continues the story from the first film.

I love the song about buying cocaine – “Let’s get blow, let’s get blow”
