Iger first announced that Disney had “sequels in the works” for “Frozen,” “Toy Story,” and “Zootopia” in February 2023. Jennifer Lee, Chief Creative Officer at Walt Disney Animation Studios and the writer/co-director of the first two films, later confirmed that she is working on “Frozen 3.”

Iger said at the World of Frozen event that “there might be a Frozen 4 in the works too” and later added that Lee is working on “not one, but actually two stories.”

World of Frozen at Hong Kong Disneyland will open on November 20, 2023. A “Frozen” area will also open as part of the Fantasy Springs expansion in Tokyo DisneySea on June 6, 2024. The Kingdom of Arendelle is under construction at Disneyland Paris, set to open in 2025.

In 2016, Maelstrom in the Norway Pavilion of EPCOT became Frozen Ever After. The pavilion later added a permanent meet-and-greet space for Anna and Elsa. Disney’s Hollywood Studios has For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along and the new “Frozen Holiday Surprise” show debuted at Magic Kingdom this month. “Frozen” is also represented on Disney Cruise Line with Arendelle – A Frozen Dining Adventure on the Disney Wish featuring dinner and a show with “Frozen” characters.

The first “Frozen” film premiered at the El Capitan Theatre on November 19, 2013. It was released in U.S. theaters on November 27 and proved to be a huge success for Disney. “Frozen” stars Kristen Bell as Princess Anna and Idina Menzel as Queen Elsa, Anna’s older sister with secret ice powers. After Elsa accidentally reveals her powers, she runs away. Anna, with help from snowman Olaf (Josh Gad) and ice carver Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), pursues Elsa. The film was written by Jennifer Lee from a story by her, Chris Buck, and Shane Morris. Buck and Lee directed “Frozen” with music by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. “Frozen” won two Oscars — Best Animated Feature and Best Song.

“Frozen II” was released in 2019, with Buck and Lee still at the helm. Set three years later, Elsa hears a strange voice calling her into the Enchanted Forest. She, Anna, Kristoff, and Olaf set out on a journey to find the voice and learn more about Anna and Elsa’s late parents. “Frozen 2” earned $1.45 billion at the global box office, and the film’s song “Into the Unknown” was nominated for Best Original Song at the 2020 Academy Awards.
