Disney Confirms They Are Ready To Torture Parents With 'Frozen 2'
Disney officially announced that a sequel to Frozen is in the works, and sources say 5-year olds across America let out a collective cheer as their parents all groaned.The news was revealed at Disney's annual shareholders meeting in San Francisco on Thursday, where details of the forthcoming Star Wars films were also announced. The directors of the first film, Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, are said to be developing the Frozen 2 according to Variety.
No surprise that Disney wants to cash in on a franchise that has raked in over $1 billion ever since it was released well over a year ago. A kingdom of profiting off of parents, and it looks like they're the queen.
Said one parent: "There are many redeeming qualities to Frozen—Girl Power, Sister Power, LGBT subtext, bizarre talking snowman. But the characters' clothes better not change because I don't want to buy any more shit." A Frozen 2 ensures a replenishing of the merchandise supply, and at least a delay of our inevitable demise
As a sort-of teaser for more of the Frozen universe, Disney will have the short Frozen Fever play ahead of the live-action Cinderella movie, which comes out tomorrow. "We enjoyed making Frozen Fever so much and being back in that world with those characters," said Disney and Pixar Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter as he counted a stack of $100 bills.
Watch the trailer for Frozen Fever.
No release date has been set for Frozen 2.
