Let it go! Disney announces plans for 'Frozen' sequel

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) - Let it go (on)! The Walt Disney Co. has announced plans to make a sequel to the animated mega-hit "Frozen."

At the company's annual shareholders meeting in San Francisco on Thursday, Disney executives officially announced plans for "Frozen 2."

Since its release in November 2013, "Frozen" has become a juggernaut for Disney. It made nearly $1.3 billion at the global box office and generated a massive merchandising revenue stream. The film also won the Oscar for best animated feature. Because of that enormous success, a sequel has been widely expected.

Walt Disney Co. chief executive Bob Iger says directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee will return for the sequel.

A "Frozen" short is to play in front of Disney's latest release, "Cinderella," which opens in theaters Friday.
