If you and your kids just can’t get enough of Elsa, Anna, Olaf, and Kristoff – don’t worry – you don’t have to let them go! Plans for Frozen 2 were just announced!! With the smash success of Frozen and the absolutely ADORABLE new short, “Frozen Fever” (debuting with Disney’s live-action Cinderella!), it comes as no surprise that Disney would make plans to add to the Frozen franchise.

Winter weather ahead! Frozen 2 is officially in development at Walt Disney Animation Studios with directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee and producer Peter Del Vecho, the Oscar®-winning filmmaking team behind Frozen.

 The news was announced at Disney’s Annual Meeting of Shareholders this morning by Bob Iger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Walt Disney Company; John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios; and frozenactor Josh Gad, who provides the voice of Olaf from Frozen.

 “We enjoyed making Frozen Fever so much and being back in that world with those characters,” said John Lasseter. “Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck have come up with a great idea for a sequel and you will be hearing a lot more about it and we’re taking you back to Arendelle. We are so excited about that.”

 A release date and production details are yet to be announced.
