Disney Moves Ahead with Frozen 2
All of the Frozen fans out there can now rest easy, as Disney has officially announced plans to make a sequel to the Oscar-winning instant classic. It will be moving forward with the same directors as last time, and considering that Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff, and Josh Gad all returned for Frozen Fever, the new Disney short that we will all get to see this weekend, as it will be showing with Disney's newest live-action adaptation of a Disney classic, Cinderella, it is safe to assume that these guys are all game for Round 2. Also joining the mix for Frozen Fever are the Oscar-winning songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez. So once again, they are probably game for Round 2 as well. Both the short and the feature will probably be in Oscar play come next year. I imagine that Frozen Fever is the early front runner for the Animated Short, and gives that category some appeal to the viewers. And Cinderella's costumes, visual effects, and production design could be popular among those particular branches.
