Idina Menzel Says Frozen Sequel Is ‘in the Works’

2 minute read

Don’t expect the Frozen blizzard to die down anytime soon.

Star Idina Menzel has set fans afire after she hinted that the studio may be planning a sequel to the blockbuster animated film.

In an interview with U.K.’s The Telegraph, the actress – who, as the voice of Elsa, gifted the world with fodder for enough “Let It Go” parodies to last a lifetime – was asked about the upcoming Frozen stage musical, as well as rumors of a second film.

According to Menzel, “they’re all in the works,” she tells the paper.

As for whether she’s signed up for any of them? “Not the stage show – I don’t know what will happen with that – but the movie hopefully,” she explains.

“We’ll see. I’m just going along for the ride,” Menzel, 43, adds.

With a global box-office haul of $1.2 billion, Frozen has become the biggest animated film in history – and the fifth top-grossing movie of all time.

The film has already knocked Barbie off her perch as the most-wanted gift on girls’ Christmas lists, and Disney on Ice recently mounted a Frozen version of its popular touring ice show.

Meanwhile, plans are reportedly moving forward to bring Frozen to the stage: Earlier this year, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed that the studio was in talks to develop a musical adaptation of the film.

In other words, when it comes to all things Frozen, neither Disney – nor fans – will be letting it go that easily.
