Days after Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee denied that a Frozen sequel was in the works, Disney has officially announced that the film is in development. During Disney’s Annual Meeting of Sharehlders, Bob Iger, John Lasseter and Josh Gad announced that Frozen 2 is moving forward with Buck and Lee directing again.
“We enjoyed making Frozen Fever so much and being back in that world with those characters,” said 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.”
Although no details on release were announced, the Frozen sequel was expected as the first film grossed over $1.2 billion worldwide and won two Academy Awards.
