Frozen directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck have denied rumours that a sequel is in the work, saying that doing the recent short film was gruelling enough.

No doubt to the delight of parents everywhere who've had to hear how MAGICAL AND SPECIAL Queen Elsa is and spend roughly the GDP of Canada on merchandise, it doesn't look like Frozen 2 is on the way, at least not anytime soon.

Idina Menzel previously suggested a sequel was 'in the works', but the directors seem keen to go out on a high.

"It's been in the press that we are doing [a sequel], and we would ask each other, 'Are we?'" Buck told BuzzFeed, denying the rumours. "They'd have a date and they'd have a cast and it was like, 'OK...'"

"Like with the short, it was so daunting until we found the story," Lee added. "Then it was all of the things it usually is and we were thinking of every emotion and moment and feeling. I think that's all we can do. Until we find our way into what's next, emotionally, it will feel too big.

"We just finished the short two weeks ago. One year ago, it was a lot to even think about doing a short. We were quite tired. We don't really know what it's like to stop for a minute and think about what we want to do next." Cinema history is filled with flopped sequels and the directors are keen not to add to them.

"There is a bit of that drop-the-mic thing," Buck said. "Just go, [drops mic] 'I don’t know what else to do.'"
