It was 3 years ago when we caught up with Queen Elsa’s catchy “Let It Go” routine that created a major LSS (last song syndrome) that rang in the ears of many Disney fans for quite some time. It seems that we’ll be going through the same delightful experience as the sisters Elsa and Anna, comes back on the big screen for the much awaited sequel of 2013’s highest grossing and Oscar winning film, Disney’s Frozen.
With Disney officially confirming that fans can expect a Frozen 2, and with speculations of another Disney Frozen short soon within this year, it seems that Disney is now stepping up the ante with info that points out that the sequel’s production is on its way. In a set interview with Haleigh Foutch from the Collider.com, Kirsten Bell, who voiced over for Anna, assured audiences and fans of the ‘mammoth cultural phenomenon’ that they can relax saying that the development of the sequel’s story is in very capable hands. When asked if they already started recording, Bell 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.”
Undoubtedly, the choice of songs for Frozen is instrumental to its success. We can surely expect nothing but the best from the song-writing tandem of Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez. However, when asked if song recordings are on its way anytime soon, Bell says, “No, not yet. We record all the time for different parks or different parks that open overseas, we’ll do a mashup for the rides. So we actually get to go in — Josh [Gad] and Idina [Menzel], Jonathan [Groff] and I — all the time and record new bits of the music. When Epcot center opens we’ll record a bunch of new music. So we have little bits of Frozen in our life at all times, but I’m excited to get started on the new movie.”
Production for Frozen 2 is definitely on its way, but making it as grand or even better than its predecessor, may even take some time. For the time being, we can set our eyes on a Frozen Broadway musical when it hits the stage on 2018, and keep a close watch on a rumored second Disney Frozen short that might be released within this year.
