The Frozen franchise started in 2013 and quickly became another smash hit for Disney. Frozen resonated with audiences and made way to $1.2 billion worldwide and two Academy Awards. The sequel was inevitable and finally arrived last year after the fans waited for six years.
With both Frozen and Frozen 2 becoming pop culture icons, a Frozen 3 seems like it won’t be far behind. However, Disney hasn’t announced anything official is happening. Josh Gad, who voices lovable snowman Olaf, recently said he isn’t aware of any plans so far, but also didn’t write off the possibility entirely.
Frozen 2‘s directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee similarly said they had no immediate plans for a third film, but they also acknowledged it could happen in the future. Marc Smith, who served as the director of story for Frozen 2, spoke with Collider about the making of that film and the franchise’s potential future. When asked if there’s any interest in a Frozen 3, Smith simply said, “We have not had that discussion. I think Frozen 2 is still too close to everyone’s minds and ideas to, to think about what happens beyond, beyond that.”
Frozen 2 released back in November and is providing new content regularly, like the special six-part documentary series, which released on Disney+ last week, that explores the behind the scenes process that went into Frozen 2.
