While Disney and Pixar have already confirmed Frozen 2, the studios are not in any rush to reveal any information about the sequel except to say that they are focusing on delivering a sequel with an excellent quality and positive message.
“We’re not demanding speed. We’re demanding excellence,” Walt Disney’s CEO Robert Iger said in a report by Fortune.
Director Chris Buck, in an interview with MTV, echoed the Disney executive’s statement, saying they are very careful in developing the story for the sequel because they understand what an impact they could have on their young audience.
The first Frozen movie became an unexpected blockbuster phenomenon revolving around the relationship of sisters Queen Elsa and Princess Anna of Arendelle, instead of the usual love story between a princess and a prince.
“When the kids [watch] them, they watch them over and over again, and if we don’t have a decent message in there, I think we’ve missed an opportunity,” the director said.
Earlier reports have confirmed that lead stars Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell, who lend their voices to Elsa and Anna, will return to the franchise.
It was also reported that there is a possibility that the sequel will actually delve into the origins of Elsa’s powers as actress Eva Bella, who voiced young Elsa in the first movie, has reportedly been invited to the sequel.
Still fan theories have ranged from a plotline involving Elsa being a lesbian, to becoming the movie’s actual villain.
