It was inevitable that the highest grossing animated film in history, Disney’s Frozen, would be getting a sequel and in the near future, Frozen fever will be hitting the world again (not that it ever died down). Here’s everything you need to know about Frozen 2.
Nothing’s currently known about the movie’s plot. It’s been said that the writers and producers, naturally, want to make sure the plot of the sequel is perfect – after all, the first one was not only the biggest animated movie of all time, it had a huge cultural impact and is loved by millions of people around the world thanks to the portrayal of Anna and Elsa’s relationship.
We can safely assume that all the first film’s main cast will be returning for the sequel. Prince Hans might, of course, not be featured in the sequel given his status as a villain, but you never know what might happen. It’s very likely that the main cast will be joined by some new faces; some have suggested that Olf may be getting a love interest, or that Elsa herself might meet her very own Prince Charming.
The release date
The producers have stated that they want to take their time with Frozen 2 to ensure it’s a quality film, though there are rumors it could be released some time in 2018. If it’s going to be released in 2018, there’s a high chance it could well be released in November, just like the first movie was. A fter all, a November release certainly worked for the first movie.
Who’s making it
Directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck will be returning to direct the sequel and producer Peter Del Vecho will be returning to produce it. Del Vecho has said they wouldn’t be making sequel unless they have a concept for the story that was equal to or greater than the story told in the first movie. Buck has stated that everyone involved in the sequel feels a whole lot of pressure given how much of a success the first movie was, and they know that they really have to produce a film that’s going to live up to the huge amount of hype that has already started building up.
