Frozen 2 is “in the works”, says Idina Menzel

A sequel to the highest grossing animated movie of all time is on the way, according to the film's star

A year might have passed since Frozen first hit UK cinema screens (The official anniversary is December 6th, if you fancy marking the momentous occasion) and we’ve done anything but Let It Go.


The hit Disney fairytale, following orphaned princesses Elsa and Anna in the winter-locked kingdom of Arendelle, captured our imaginations (and our vocal chords), spawning remakes, spoofs and mountains of frothy Disney costumes. It quickly became the highest grossing animated film of all time, beating the likes of Toy Story, The Lion King and Shrek. 

And it seems there is now more Frozen fever on the horizon, as a sequel to the hit Disney movie is “in the works,” according to Idina Menzel, who voiced Elsa. 

Frozen has just been re-released theatrically in a sing-a-long format while the filmmakers are working on a new six-minute short. But there are also rumours of a stage musical and a sequel, both of which have been given the green light, says the star.

“They’re all in the works,” Menzel told the Telegraph.

Asked whether she was on board, Menzel replied: “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.”


Sounds encouraging to us. Anyone want to build a snowman?
