Not that anyone was all that surprised about a sequel, given
the tons of cash the first movie brought in ($1.3 billion at the global box
office and, from what we can tell, gazillions in Elsa costumes and Olaf holiday
decorations). The timing of this announcement is also kinda obvious: On Friday,
the animated short Frozen Fever will open with Cinderella in theaters.
"We enjoyed making Frozen Fever so much and
being back in that world with those characters" Disney/Pixar boss John
Lasseter said at the meeting. "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."
There's no date set (and sorry, you know these animated
films take a really long time to make), and we don't know who else is signing
back on for the movie besides ice-cuddling Bell. In an interview with the Telegraph last fall, Idina Menzel let slip that she hoped to be in the sequel.
To celebrate, you have our permission
to belt out "Let It Go" in your room/office for a few minutes right
