Great news for Frozen fans: Disney has confirmed that a sequel is definitely happening! While there aren’t many details to report about the story or cast, the people who are officially attached are co-directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, as well as Josh Gad, who played Olaf and will reprise his role. One thing we know for sure is that Olaf has still not melted!
So far, that’s it! But Kristen Bell posted a very serene picture of herself either celebrating the news or having a terrible toothache:
As of now, there is no release date or title for the sequel, but in case you still needed an icy fix, the Frozen short, Frozen Fever, can be seen before Cinderella when that opens on Friday.
This news actually broke during the same shareholders’ call that announced the new Star Wars spinoff’s title and the next sequel’s release date, so it’s a humdinger of a day for Disney news. Maybe all that information and speculation will distract you from the echoes of “Let It Go” that are still working their way through your head. Just think, a brand new song might become your 7-year-old’s permanently looping anthem of power and control!
