Most fans are hoping that there will be a "Frozen 2" following the huge success of the first movie.
The 2013 Disney animation has earned approximately $1.3 billion worldwide, thus making it the highest-grossing animated film of all time. "Frozen" also received numerous awards including "Best Animated Feature" at the Academy Awards. The hit single "Let It Go" from the movie soundtrack bagged the "Best Original Song" at the Oscars.
Seeing Elsa and Anna as well as the other characters in a "Frozen" sequel is something that is highly anticipated, but it looks like it won't be happening. During an interview with Bustle, Kristen Bell who voiced Anna revealed the real status of "Frozen 2".
"They haven't green-lighted it yet," she said.
"There is so much speculation, mostly because people have wanted it so bad. They've read into quotes or otherwise. They definitely have not green-lit it," the 34-year old actress confirmed.
However, Kristen Bell expressed her excitement in doing a sequel to the Disney animation.
"I would really hope they do, as all of our cast members would love to be involved. We're twiddling our thumbs and trying to nudge them in the right direction," the mom of two daughters said.
So when did the rumors started out?
According to Hypable, it could have been taken from Idina Menzel's statement when she was asked if she would like to participate in "Frozen" Broadway musical and if there will be a sequel to the movie.
"They're all in the works," said the actress who played Queen Elsa. "We'll see. I'm just going along for the ride."
However, Idina Menzel recently tried to clear up the "Frozen 2" rumors by explaining what she meant about her recent statement.
"Apparently I spoke out of turn. I just assumed because it was so successful there'd be a sequel," the 43-year old singer told The Times. She was also asked if there will be a "Frozen" musical. "I think they're working on [it] but the Disney people keep things close to their chests," said Menzel.
