Given that the first film made $1.3 billion in the global box office and that kids just can't get over Elsa and Olaf and all the darn adorable characters and annoyingly catchy songs, the decision doesn't really come as much of a surprise, but still!
The company used its annual shareholders meeting in San Francisco to break the
ice news, reports Variety.
“We enjoyed making ‘Frozen Fever’ so much and being back in that world with those characters,” said John Lasseter, the chief creative officer of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios. FYI, Frozen Fever is the animated short set to play before the live action Cinderella film, which premieres this weekend.
“[Directors] Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck have come up with a great idea for a sequel and you will be hearing a lot more about it and we’re taking you back to Arendelle," continued Lasseter. "We are so excited about that.”
