Ready your sparkly blue dress and warm up your vocal chords – Disney has confirmed the release date for Frozen 2!
The official Disney Animation account shared a tweet revealing the exciting news, stating that the movie would be in theatres in two-and-a-half years time.
Kristen Bell, who provided the voice for Anna in the original Frozen film, also sent an enthusiastic tweet to her fans to celebrate the announcement.
‘Quick weather forecast from your favorite disney princess’ sister: Theaters are gonna get Frozen on November 27, 2019! Woo Hoo!!!!’ the actress wrote.
Kristen previously explained that the reason for the relatively long wait was that the filmmakers were working hard to ensure that Frozen 2 lives up to the original.
‘What I know about that whole team is that they wouldn’t just put something out to put it out,’ she said to Collider.
‘That’s why it took them so long to even announce that we were doing a second one. Generally when you have a first successful movie you want to make a second one. It took them a while because they wanted to figure out what story they needed to tell and what would be important and engaging and I think they found it.’
Producer Peter Del Vecho told Entertainment Weekly back in March: ‘Now that we’ve been involved in it for awhile, what’s exciting is it feels like it builds on the first movie. You understand things better in the first movie after you’ve seen the sequel.’
The news of the sequel first broke on 13th March 2015, and since then we’ve been spending our days imagining all of the fun Elsa, Anna, Olaf et al will have in their next big adventure.
Possibly the only person more excited than us at the time was Kristen herself, who posted this brilliant celebratory snap on her Twitter profile:
Co-directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, who worked on the first Frozen film, have been confirmed for Frozen 2, so we’re sure it’ll have the same great mix of puns, songs and sisterhood.
If 2019 is just too long to wait for more Frozen fun, there’s also a stage version of the story in the works, although it’ll be premiering on Broadway, and still won’t begin until 2018.
