Disney chief hints at Frozen sequel

As Frozen earns mega-bucks for Disney, its boss has been talking about its "franchise potential"...

Disney has traditionally been reluctant to make 'proper' sequels (as opposed to straight to video/DVD cash-ins) to its main line of animated features, and it hasn't done so since the release of The Rescuers Down Under over 20 years ago. But there are suggestions that things are beginning to change there.

Rumours continue to swirl that we're going to get a sequel to Wreck-It Ralph, which director Rich Moore never hid he was open to the idea of, although nothing concrete has been heard since. And now Disney's CEO, Bob Iger, has been hinting that Frozen 2 is a possibility.

In a conference call with investors, Iger said of Frozen that "this has real franchise potential". There's already been talking of a Broadway show, and Frozen toys and merchandise is in short supply due to the sizeable demand for it.

Iger didn't overtly say that a film sequel was on the cards, but his words are being taken as a hint that it's a possibility. We'd imagine it won't be the last time we see the film's key characters in Disney screen production, certainly.

What's better news is the Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers movie they're making. Hopefully it opens the door for Duck Tales, Darkwing Duck, Gizmo Duck (finally!), Goof Troop, Gargoyles, Gummi Bears, even a Kingdom Hearts movie! I just blew my own mind. That's legal, right?

Really didn't like Wreck-it Ralph, well, I thought it was kinda cool up until it got to Sugar Rush, oh my days, what a let down.

Frozen I still have not seen, lets hope the hype isn't misplaced on this one as well.

No, I think sequel but Olaf deserves a spin-off, such as Olaf: Snowman in summer!

I didn't like Wreck it Ralph either, but IMO Frozen surpasses the hype

I'll just say this: when Ralph repeated the support-group mantra during that dramatic act of friendship, I was a WRECK.

*wink wink nudge nudge while weeping*

well I don't know what they can make the 2nd story about but I would LOVE the see a 2nd one

well for me i would like to see JACK FROST in this 2nd frozen movie and rapunzel/hiccup/merida... i mean jack has been around for 300 years and i think its possible if he stumble upon them right!!! PLEASE SPREAD THE WORDS maybe the creators/relative to this movies will start too SEE them too so i think it would be COOL if they did

That seems pretty plausible actually, that Jack Frost could freeze a country over or something, whether by accident or not and they have to find a way to reverse it before everyone freezes to death.

Well, i think a prequel will be more interesting (the origin o Elsa's powers) , sequel will coming after.

I saw the first of frozen 1st I wont 2 see frozen 2nd I thank 2 see that actually am not kidding so intil the movie***Strsts

What about the things you just said, but that Jack Frost is seen as a villain in Elsas' mind. only to find out of his troubled past, but the real villains is Hans again, to seek revenge and demand the throne of Arendelle. Since the story takes place in the 1800's, Norway was within a union with Denmark.

Um, nope. I'm pretty sure it's not possible.
Also, Jack is a DreamWorks character, so is Hiccup. Disney is kind of a rival of DreamWorks. (And I personally don't ship them, so yuck no.)
Jack is 300 years old, yes, but he is in the modern times. Frozen takes place in medieval times.
So, since apparently Jack was 17 before he became a guardian, he would be about 4 years old or something when Elsa was 21.
I did not calculate this, I just remember someone saying something about it on a Social Media website.

Well,I'm hoping for a sequel.I'm not satisfied for just one movie.I wanna see Anna,Elsa & gang next adventure.Maybe Elsa will found her true love.

wish they make a part 2....for the first time I watched frozen.. it suddenly melted my heart when anna sung the song'' do you want to build a snowman''...because it exactly tells what anna feels right away ever since elsa shut her out.... so I hope the frozen 2 will be coming soon and hope it''ll be a little longer cause the first movie's too short..
