Frozen sequel confirmed? Idina Menzel says follow-up to Disney hit is ''in the works''
Actress Idina Menzel has confirmed there will be a sequel to Disney's smash hit
Menzel, who voices Elsa in the animated film, admitted a stage show and Frozen 2 were "in the works" when
quizzed about persistent rumours
in an interview with the Telegraph.
"That they’re all in the works. Not the stage show – I don’t know what will happen with that – but the movie hopefully. We’ll see. I’m just going along for the ride," she said.
Frozen has become the highest-grossing animated film of all time since its release in November 2013. It took in more than $1 billion at the box office.
The film also spawned hit song Let It Go, which is sung by Menzel.
The 43-year-old actress and Broadway star admitted she was surprised by the movie's success and her newfound fame among its young fan base.
She said: "I remember some of those classic Disney songs from movies, and you knew the character but you didn’t know the person behind the song. But this is different, this is weird."
While fans await a feature-length sequel, Menzel and co-stars Kristen Bell and Josh Gadd are expected to reprise their roles in a one-off short, Frozen Fever, next year.
Directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck will return to direct the mini-adventure but it's not yet known if it will air on TV or in cinemas.
The short will feature a new original song written by Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, who won an Oscar for Let It Go.
