‘Frozen’ Holiday TV Special and Broadway Plans Officially Announced
If you’ve been itching for more Frozen, you’re about to get a whole lot of it. In addition to the previously announced Frozen movie sequel, Disney has officially confirmed plans to take the hit animated blockbuster to Broadway. The stage show won’t debut until 2018, which gives you plenty of time to save up some cash and maybe have a kid who will be old enough to appreciate it by then.
Disney has officially announced their plans to take Frozen to Broadway, where the live stage adaptation will open in the spring of 2018. Frozen co-director and co-writer Jennifer Lee will provide the book for the show, which will use music and lyrics by original composers Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. 2018 seems pretty far away, but Disney plans on giving the show an out-of-town tryout at a theatre to-be-announced in the summer of 2017, so there’s a chance you could see the Frozen stage show before its official debut — unless you already have pressing obligations, like a dentist appointment or something.
If musical theatre isn’t your thing, or if you’re feeling particularly impatient, Disney has also announced plans for a Frozen holiday TV special set to air on ABC in late 2017. Original cast members Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell and Josh Gad will reprise their voice roles as Elsa, Anna and Olaf, respectively.
Further details remain scarce, but given the late 2017 / early 2018 release dates of both projects, perhaps we can expect Frozen 2 to hit theaters sometime in 2018?
