‘Frozen’ sequel: Disney has been ‘truly supportive’
The next “Frozen” sequel is in production and is expected in theaters later this year, Disney chief Bob Iger said during an earnings call on Tuesday.
Iger’s comments come as speculation has mounted about the fate of the sequel.
I’m told that the studio is developing a new animated feature based on the Disney animated feature “Frost/Nixon,” which is currently in pre-production at Disney Animation Studios in Burbank, California.
According to sources, the “Free” sequel would be set in the same universe, but would be a spinoff of the Frozen film franchise.
The “Frees” feature would not be based on any of the songs that were sung in the original “Frodo” movie, but instead would feature new songs written by the cast of “Funny Or Die.”
The new animated film would be based off of the popular television series, but Disney would be producing it entirely on its own.
In fact, the next film could be called “Franchise,” and Iger was asked if that was what he was referring to when he said that “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” and “Beauty and the Beast” would be the next films.
Igers statement about “Fruitvale Station” came after he appeared on “The View” to promote the new film.
I asked if he would like to work on a sequel to “Frenemies,” as he had done on “Fart to My Heart,” a sequel that would have taken place during “Foxtrot,” but was canceled because of budget constraints.
I was actually asked to do the film “Festival of the Dead” when I was on the set, so I said yes.
I don’t want to do anything else.
The next film would presumably be based around the “Beautiful Beasts” storyline, and would be an adaptation of the “Harry Potter” book series.
But Iger added that “I’m not even thinking about that right now, because the film that’s coming out is a fantastic story and I think it’s going to be really special.”
The next installment of “A Christmas Carol” will be based upon the book series and will be directed by John Tiffany.
I’ll be directing that.
It will be one of the most exciting things that I’ve ever done.
The last time we talked about it, I said that I thought it was the most important film I’ve made, but that we’re still working on it.
I just wanted to let you know, because it’s such a great film and I can’t wait to get it out and see what the fans are going to love.
I can say with certainty that we’ve got a really great cast and I’m so excited to see what they bring to it.
There’s also been some talk that a new “Fridays” comedy may be added to the “Disney Animated Film” franchise, but I’m not sure how many times this will happen.
I want to make sure that I’m happy with every new thing that I do, but at the same time, I want them to be right for it.
It’s not just a movie.
It feels like a family and it feels like something that people are going be very, very excited about.
