It doesn’t come as much of a surprise that Disney has officially announced that the company will be making a highly anticipated sequel. Frozen was a big hit from the time it opened in theatres on November 22, 2013. Ever since its release, the movie has been Disney’s merchandising enterprise, breaking sale’s records. No release dates or production details have been announced, but the Frozen sequel will undoubtedly be a big hit, as the first movie was the most successful animated movie of all time, grossing $1.2 billion worldwide.
The original creative team for the movie said they enjoyed being back together with the cast for the mini-film Frozen Fever so much that they couldn’t wait to get started on the next. Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee, and Peter del Vacho will be working together to make the sequel just as enjoyable as the first. Even Josh Gad, the actor who voices Olaf, the loveable snowman, was on hand to make the announcement.
Frozen won Oscars for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song, for “Let It Go.” Because it was such a big hit, it is unlikely that there is a household in America that doesn’t know the lyrics to this song. Children across the country have been recorded singing along with Elsa as she climbs the snowy mountain. Fans should be thrilled to hear that the sequel will come with a whole new set of songs to enjoy.
The soundtrack for the movie secured the number one spot on the Billboard 200 three different times. It was the highest selling album of 2014, winning over Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, and One Direction.
