UPDATE: Idina Menzel has clarified that the sequel is not officially confirmed.
Disney is not going to let go of “Frozen” any time soon. Idina Menzel, the voice of Elsa, seemed to confirm a sequel in a recent interview with the Telegraph.
“Frozen,” an animated film about two princesses who have to save their kingdom from an unending winter, made more than $1 billion at the box office this year. There will be a “Frozen” short released in April and a Broadway show is in the early stages, but a full-length sequel film is also rumored to happen soon.
“That they’re all in the works, ha ha!” Menzel coyly said when asked what she could say on the confirmed and rumored upcoming projects.
Unfortunately Menzel doesn’t know if she’ll appear in all of those projects. When questioned about her involvement in future “Frozen” titles, she was positive about her role (or lack of) in one particular addition.
“Ah yeah, sure … Not the stage show – I don’t know what will happen with that – but the movie hopefully,” Menzel said. “We’ll see. I’m just going along for the ride.”
Meanwhile, Idina Menzel's co-star Kristen Bell, the voice of Anna, said she wasn’t quite sure that a sequel was in the works earlier this month. When a PopSugar reporter claimed that they knew a sequel was coming, Bell responded, “Do we?”
Bell couldn’t confirm a sequel, but she said she would be willing to do it. “But yeah, I really hope they do a sequel,” Bell said. “I would love, love to be part of the sequel.”
Until then, fans will just have to wait for “Frozen Fever,” the short film that will be released in the spring. “We did do a short, and I’ve seen it and it’s very, very cute,” Kristen Bell told reporters. “There’s new music in it, which is always going to be fun for everyone.”
“Frozen Fever” will hit theaters in the spring and be attached to another full-length Disney film.
