In the current Hollywood climate, you'd think Disney would be quicker knocking out a sequel to 2013’s mega-blockbuster Frozen.

However, the company has taken their time, releasing very little information about the upcoming project. Courtesy of the voice behind Anna - Kristen Bell - we finally have an update.

When asked by Collider whether she had recorded any of her lines, the The Boss actor said: “Not yet. We’re just about to. They’ve just written it and they’re still doing tweaks, but I think we should be recording this month”.

She added: “The story is great, and they exude quality. What I know about that whole team is that they wouldn’t just put something out to put it out. That’s why it took them so long to even announce that we were doing a second one.

“Generally when you have a first successful movie you want to make a second one. It took them a while because they wanted to figure out what story they needed to tell and what would be important and engaging and I think they found it.”

A release date has yet to be announced for the film but if the script is completed and voice recording sessions happening this month, perhaps we’re looking at a Christmas 2017 release.

However, a Frozen ‘Holiday special’ is set for release that same year - and animation takes a long time - so it is perhaps more likely we’ll be waiting until 2018. A musical stage adaptation is also happening that year.
