Frozen hits theaters in 2019
Dust off your Elsa wigs and iron your sparkly blue dresses because we’ve got a date for the release of Frozen 2.
After stuffing our faces with turkey, stuffing, and pie, we can head to the theaters Thanksgiving 2019 to see our favorite shero. Disney announced this week that the animated follow-up film to their 2013 blockbuster will be released on November 27, 2019.
If you’ve been living under a rock allow us to catch you up: Frozen is the highest-grossing animated film of all time. It earned $1.2 billion at the box office alone. And households with children everywhere were singing, “Let it go…” all day long, for months. Actually, make that years.
Anyway, the story centers around Anna, played by beloved mom and actress Kristen Bell, who is trapped in a perpetual winter and must save her sister, Snow Queen Elsa, played by Idina Menzel.
Anna teams up with mountaineer Kristoff, played by Jonathan Groff, and goes on an epic adventure to break Elsa’s icy spell. She meets magical trolls, a funny snowman, played by Josh Gad, and survives the winter’s brutal conditions.
Disney has been pretty hush-hush with the details on the sequel. But a few months back producer Peter Del Vecho did speak with Entertainment Weekly about the future film. “We’re working hard on it,” Del Vecho said. “We’re in the development writing process and are very excited by it. Like all movies, it will evolve.”
And apparently, Frozen 2 will help fans better understand the original animated flick. “Now that we’ve been involved in it for awhile, what’s exciting is it feels like it builds on the first movie,” Del Vecho explained. “You understand things better in the first movie after you’ve seen the sequel.” Which is great since we weren’t ready to, you guessed it, let it go.
