A movie that made a billion, trillion dollars might be getting a sequel?! We did not see that coming!
Idina Menzel, the voice behind Frozen's Elsa, all but confirmed that there is indeed a follow-up in the works to the 2013 animated smash hit that spawned a best-selling single, merchandise that is putting Barbie out of business, and so many "Let It Go" covers and parodies it'll make your head spin.
And while this news is completely unsurprising, Menzel dropping it in an interview before Disney can make an official announcement is a bold choice on her part.
While Talking to The Telegraph, the Broadway vet was asked if she could say anything about three things: the upcoming Frozen short, the rumors of a film sequel and the rumors about a stage adaptation. Her reply?
"That they're all in the works, ha ha!"
The interviewer followed up and asked if she was signed up for all three of those things, and she said "ah, yeah sure."
"Not the stage show," she continued. "I don't know what will happen with that, but the movie hopefully. We'll see. I'm just going along for the ride."
Again, we don't think anyone on this planet who has heard of Frozen is surprised by the news of a forthcoming sequel, but it's definitely nice to hear that Elsa will indeed be returning. And hopefully with another song that becomes a worldwide phenomenon.
And speaking of that song, Idina has some advice for all those wishing to tackle the tune that is now probably stuck in your head as you read this.
"I can't give any tips on how to sing 'Let It Go' because I barely can sing it sometimes," she admits. "It's really hard. I can't wake up in the morning and just sing it, you know. I guess my advice is everyone that likes to sing it should sing it loud and proud and karaoke it out, sing it in the shower, sing it in the car and don't worry about hitting the high notes. I'm the only one who has to worry if people are gonna criticize me."
Disney hasn't yet commented on the rumors of a Frozen sequel.
