It’s the Christmas news that all Disney fans have been waiting for – yes, a Frozen sequel is “in the works”.

The US actress and singer, who voiced Elsa in the 2013 animated hit, has sparked great excitement after hinting that she could be back for a second movie.

When asked about the upcoming Frozen musical as well as Frozen 2 rumours by The Telegraph, she replied: “They’re all in the works.”

Elsa from 'Frozen' has sparked a name trend in the UK

Menzel revealed that she has not signed up to join the stage show’s cast and “doesn’t know what will happen with that”, but hopes to be a part of the next film.

“We’ll see, I’m just going along for the ride,” she said.

Last year, Frozen grossed a massive $1.2 billion at the global box office to become the highest-grossing animated film in history and the fifth biggest movie of all time.

Popular song “Let It Go”, performed by Menzel in the film, won best original song at the 2014 Oscars with Frozen taking best animated feature film.

A short film, Frozen Fever, is due for release in spring 2015 and will focus on Elsa’s sister Anna’s birthday. Reports suggest that cinema-goers may catch the film prior to screenings of Kenneth Branagh’s live action Cinderella remake in March.

Producers confirmed in September that there were “no plans” for a feature-length big screen follow-up, but Menzel’s latest comments appear to suggest a change of heart.
