Hints at a Magical Frozen 4: In an enchanting revelation at the heart of Hong Kong Disneyland, the luminary Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger not only unwrapped the much-anticipated Frozen 3 but also tantalized fans with the possibility of a Frozen 4 simmering in the creative cauldron. In an appearance on Good Morning America amid the grand debut of the new “World of Frozen” enclave at the park, Iger slyly teased, “I’ll bestow upon you a little surprise, Michael: Frozen 3 is in the works, and there might just be a Frozen 4 in the making, too.”
Keeping the veil of secrecy draped over the films’ details, Iger, a spry 72-year-old executive, hinted that Jennifer Lee, the maestro behind the original Frozen and its sequel, is orchestrating not just one but two tales with her adept team at Disney Animation.
The confirmation of Frozen 3 came as a delightful treat during a call with investors in February, where Iger, a visionary in the world of entertainment, also unveiled plans for sequels to the beloved Toy Story and Zootopia franchises. The desire for another Frozen installment has been echoed by the charismatic cast, with the effervescent Kristen Bell (the vocal virtuoso behind Anna) playfully declaring on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, “I would like to officially announce, with zero authority, Frozen 3.”
The Oscar-adorned songsmiths of the franchise, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, found themselves pleasantly caught off guard by the news. Kristen Anderson-Lopez revealed in March that they were bestowed with the revelation on the very day of the announcement, and the flood of exciting ideas left them brimming with anticipation.
In an eloquent discussion about the third opus at the prestigious BFI London Film Festival, the co-creator and co-director, the brilliant Jennifer Lee, shared her elation, expressing, “I was blown away” and “so excited” by the snippets she has glimpsed so far. Emphasizing the collaborative essence of the project, she elucidated, “If there is more story to tell, the filmmakers have to steer the ship. And I’ll say with Frozen, Marc Smith, who was our director of story on Frozen 2, brought forth an incredible idea for more Frozen, and it’s absolutely worth the journey.”
