The sequel to Disney smash ‘Frozen’ is set to go into production this month, according to Kristen Bell, who’ll be reprising her role as Princess Anna.
The actress and singer was promoting her new movie 'The Boss’, in which she stars with Melissa McCarthy, when she dropped the news on the project.
She told Collider: “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.
“Generally when you have a first successful movie you want to make a second one. It took them a while because they wanted to figure out what story they needed to tell and what would be important and engaging and I think they found it.”
The sequel to the billion dollar animation (it took about £886 million worldwide) will see Bell, Idina Menzel (Elsa), Josh Gad (Olaf) and Jonathan Groff (Kristoff) reprising their roles.
Meanwhile, Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez will be back to score the music, with Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee directing once again.
So far, there’s no news on a release date.
Even in the wake of Pixar’s massive 'Inside Out’, 'Frozen’ still ranks as the highest-grossing animated film of all time, ahead of 'Minions’ and 'Toy Story 3’.
