When it rains it pours… or maybe we should say, when it snows, it snows… no that doesn’t work. How does Frozen 2 strike you?
Disney announced today that it is indeed working on a sequel to its most profitable animated film.
The first film’s directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck are developing the project with producer Peter Del Vecho for Walt Disney Animation Studios, which took home the Oscar for animated feature for the film.
There is no release date for the film, but my three year old son is already jumping up and down about seeing more Frozen on the big screen. I hope his enthusiasm continues until the movie finally arrives.
Since this is only an announcement, the story could be nearly anything. What would make a great follow up story?
I have a far out idea that could make Frozen 2 not only a sequel to the first movie, but also for The Little Mermaid and Tangled. Perhaps you aren’t familiar with the odd clues sprinkled in Frozen that ties into the other two movies? In Tangled, the announcement of the Rapunzel’s birth calls for a big celebration where dignitaries from around the region are in attendance. The king and queen of Arendelle died at sea while going to an official function. In The Little Mermaid, one of the ships looks identical to the ship that went down. During Elsa’s coronation, Rapunzel and Flynn are seen walking through the gates. What if… WHAT IF… Elsa and Anna’s parents aren’t dead!? What if they are being held captive by the Sea Witch (prior to the events of The Little Mermaid), and Anna, Elsa, and the rest have to go rescue them? WHAT IF… indeed.
