Disney’s Frozen 2 has received mixed reviews, but the box office results mean there is still plenty of motive for Disney to make Frozen 3. To get Frozen 2, screenwriter Jennifer Lee once more co-directed with Chris Buck, employing the sequel to open up the characters’ horizons to lands outside Arendelle.
Frozen 2 mainly focuses on the relationship between the main Arendelle protagonists as well as the Northuldra tribe. Queen Elsa (Idina Menzel) feels drawn to the north after hearing voices, also sets on with sister Anna (Kristen Bell), Kristoff (Jonathan Groff), reindeer Sven, along the snowman Olaf (Josh Gad). Inspired by her late mother and father’s tales from youth, Queen Elsa establishes a peaceful relationship with the Northuldra and finds that her ancestry is directly connected to the Enchanted Forest.
While Frozen 2 doesn’t feature a traditional villain like the first film, Frozen, it does build to a conclusion that provides spiritual clarity for both the individuals of Arendelle along the Northuldra tribe. Unlike the first film’s declarative anthem “Let It Go,” the movie’s theme song, “Into the Unknown” is much more introspective and produces a different mood. The end also leaves the story very open to going in new directions – which is, if Disney decides to earn Frozen 3.
Will Frozen 3 Happen?
Overall, Frozen two has received largely positive reviews, and also set a November box office listing for most animated films on its first day of release. But even if Frozen 2 becomes a huge box office success such as the original movie, among those co-directors has indicated that Frozen 3 probably won’t happen. Jennifer Lee told Yahoo Movies which “For me personally [finishing Frozen 2] felt final,” and formally noted that she’s “tired” Still, as a glimmer of hope, Lee lately said that “we constantly say never say never. ”’ As for Chris Buck, he believes Frozen and Frozen 2 work as one big movie, but similarly teased Frozen 3 by saying “nothing ever closes the door.” Assuming that Frozen 2 is going to be considered as the following commercial and critical hit for Disney, it appears plausible that the throw will return, at some point, for a third installment.
Frozen 3’S Release Date
Frozen 2 has been officially announced in March 2015, roughly 16 months after Frozen premiered. So, moving forward, it’s unlikely that Disney will hurry to greenlight Frozen 3, particularly since Frozen 2 does appear to indicate the close of the narrative. If Lee feels inspired to write a new chapter (or Disney hires a different author to do so), several years will be required for the pre-production and animation. Given the six-year wait for Frozen 2, a similar deadline would see Frozen 3 releasing a while around 2025.
Frozen 3’S Story
Frozen two is somewhat unusual in that it does not have a real villain, and is rather about a journey to find out the origin of Elsa’s powers (and to reveal the secrets of Arendelle’s previous ). However, it goes to lengths to remind the audience of Frozen’s villain, Prince Hans. He’s brought up during a game of charades and said in a conversation involving Anna and Kristoff. During his summary of the storyline of Frozen, Olaf plays the role of Hans, and then we watch Hans himself within an icy form when Elsa is investigating Ahtohallan.
With Anna now ruling as Queen of Arendelle and Elsa looking after the Enchanted Forest, a new villain could interrupt the peaceful give-and-take dynamic between the various lands – and Hans is devious enough that he could find a way to return and make trouble for those sisters. Frozen 3 could bring things full circle by bringing back Hans, or could even do a leap forward in time and follow Anna or Elsa’s kids.
