Disney CEO Bob Iger gave that Frozen fans, a strong indication that two sequels to the studio’s animated juggernaut may be in development.
“Well, I’ll give you a little surprise, Michael. Frozen 3 is in the works and there could be one Frozen 4 also in the works,” Iger said Good morning America co-anchors Robin Givens and Michael Strahan from Hong Kong Disneyland, where the studio boss is present to open a new one World of frozen theme land on November 20.
Disney seems to be doubling down on Elsa and Anna’s story in Arendelle and the world of Frozen. Frozen II earned $1.4 billion at the global box office in 2019, while the 2013 premiere earned $1.2 billion. Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel led the cast.
Iger didn’t say much about sequel plans for the Oscar-winning film Frozen franchise, though he added, “But Jenn Lee, who created Frozen – the original Frozen And Frozen 2 – is working hard with her team at Disney Animation on not one, but actually two stories… A small first.”
Lee, Chief Creative Officer and writer and director of Walt Disney Animation Studios Frozen films, previously confirmed work on Frozen 3 had started during a performance at the BFI London Film Festival. Like Iger, she hasn’t revealed any story details about the latest sequel. “Last week they set aside a space every morning for me to work on with the creative team. And I’m overwhelmed, and I’m so excited,” she said in October.
