The movie took everyone by storm (ice storm to be specific) last year and was an animated phenomenon, but the question now on everyone's mind is when the sequel to Frozen is coming to theaters. Could a recent schedule announcement by Disney tell more than we thought?
While the Frozen series is going to keep going in the form of a short film next year, the lack of a plan for a follow-up to the feature has made fans anxious. Well it looks like Disney may wait a little longer than we could've anticipated.
Disney made an announcement earlier this month that they are planning two animated movies for 2016: Moana and Zootopia. The first one is about a Polynesian girl who lives in Oceania in the South Pacific and is on a quest for a fabled land. The second follows Nick Wilde, a fast-talking fox who's trying to make it big, who goes on the run when he's framed for a crime he didn't commit.
But what does this mean for another Frozen movie?
It probably means that the company is going to focus on some of its newer properties rather than diving back into the world inhabited by Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf just yet. With Moana and Zootopia coming out in 2016, it seems like the company is looking to create more new content before they dive back into the old.
Disney Animation has had success recently with hits like Tangled, Wreck-It-Ralph, and Big Hero 6 on top of Frozen so they have a host of places to go with the studio and probably want to buy some time before retreading on old ground.
