Three years ago Disney unleashed a mammoth cultural phenomenon with Frozen,Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee’s animated tale about the bond between two sisters and the power of confronting your fears.
The film trampled the box office, took home two Oscars, spawned an animated short and a Broadway musical, and enthralled a generation of young movie-goers with Anna and Elsa, two new Disney princesses for the ages. Ever since, fans have been waiting for Frozen 2, and while things were looking grim for a while, Disney officially confirmed the sequel last year, and now, according to star Kristen Bell, the sequel is just about to roll into production.
When asked if she’d started recording lines for Frozen 2, here’s what she said:
Not yet. We’re just about to. They’ve just written it and they’re still doing tweaks, but I think we should be recording this month. The story is great, and they exude quality. What I know about that whole team is that they wouldn’t just put something out to put it out. 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.
