After Frozen 2 made $1.45 billion in the box office worldwide and became the 2nd highest-grossing animated film of all time, it had been anticipated that Disney would immediately announce a third film in the franchise. Though that did not occur, much to the disappointment of fans, it does not automatically indicate that the movie studio has already ruled out a potential Frozen 3.
At a recent interview with PopCulture.com, Josh Gad, that uttered the cute snowman Olaf at the first two Frozen movies, said that there will just be a third movie if the franchise founders led by Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck have a story worth exploring.
“Here is the deal. Frozen 2 wasn’t Frozen 2 until there was a reason to exist. And similarly, I do not know if and when there is going to be a Frozen 3,” Gad explained. And so the saga continues, even if it’s not necessarily in the kind of a third movie. But we will see! When there’s always a story worth telling, I am sure that Jennifer Lee and the unbelievable team at Disney cartoon will tell that story one day.
Produced during the COVID-19 pandemic, At Home with Olaf is an animated short film series that originated on Walt Disney Animation Studios’ YouTube Channel on April 6th. It ended on May 13th with a special musical montage brief, entitled I’m with You, which contains clips from the first Frozen movie and other Disney animated films, such as Dumbo, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Hercules, Wreck-It Ralph, and more.
Buck, just like Lee, has a”never say never” mindset concerning another Frozen movie.
In addition to Gad, Frozen 2 also stars other returning cast members Idina Menzel as Elsa, Kristen Bell as Anna, Jonathan Groff as Kristoff, and Ciarán Hinds as Grand Pabbie. The original cast are combined franchise novices Sterling K. Brown, Evan Rachel Wood, Alfred Molina, Martha Plimpton, Jason Ritter, Rachel Matthews, and Jeremy Sisto.
