This month will mark the fifth anniversary of Frozen. Considered to be one of Disney’s best-animated movies, Frozen has become a cult movie whose influence and impact has surpassed geographical and linguistic barriers.
With the heartwrenching but inspiring tale of Anna and Elsa, Disney initiated the conversation around being different, the idea of consent, the necessity of compassion in today’s world and self-love. Frozen is now the highest grossing animated film of all time ($1.3 billion).
Today, it was reported that Disney has shifted the released date for the sequel and now Frozen 2 will be released on November 22, 2018. It was originally intended to be released on November 27th.
As reported by Collider: “Rather than release the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, Disney will now get to enjoy a bonus opening weekend before the extended holiday box office frame. That’s a pretty easy decision considering this flick is all but guaranteed to top the original.”
Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell will be reprising their roles as Arendelle royalty. Josh Gad too will be returning as the witty Olaf.
“It was previously reported that Evan Rachel Wood and Sterling K. Brown are in talks to join the voice cast. Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, the filmmakers behind “Frozen,” are stepping behind the camera once again to direct. “Hidden Figures” screenwriter Allison Schroeder is penning the script with Lee.”
In last five years, Frozen has created a space for itself amongst the movie lovers. With sequel making its way to the theatres, we can expect new moments to unfold. Are you excited as we are?
