“That’s what I’ve heard.”
According to the King of Arendelle, Frozen 3 isn’t going to happen.
Alfred Molina – who voices Anna and Elsa’s father King Agnarr in the upcoming sequel – was asked by Variety if he would reprise his role in a potential third film. According to his sources however, there won’t even be a Frozen 3.
“Well, I don’t think there’ll be a three,” the Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated actor revealed. “That’s what I’ve heard, but who knows, who knows? Those kind of decisions are way above my pay grade.”
Frozen 2 will see the return of Kristen Bell (Anna), Adele Dazeem/Idina Menzel (Elsa), Jonathan Groff (Kristoff) and Josh Gad (Olaf), with newcomers Evan Rachel Wood as Elsa and Anna’s mother and Sterling Brown as Lieutenant Matthias.
The first film received widespread acclaim from critics when it was released back in 2013, and grossed 1.3 billion worldwide, becoming the highest grossing animated film (it has since been surpassed by the live-action remake of The Lion King).
It won two Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song for the Idina Menzel penned anthem, Let It Go.
You’ll be pleased to know that Frozen 2 has received a similar response, with many critics saying the film has “surpassed” its predecessor. “It’s a darker, more complex and more emotionally mature story,” said a writer from Movie Fone.
Another wrote: “Frozen 2 is the rare sequel that surpasses the original. The scope is twice as staggering, the action twice as thrilling, the autocannibalism sequences twice as harrowing, the songs twice as catchy.
“Didn’t think I needed a sequel to FROZEN, but turns out I was very, very wrong.”
Frozen 2 will be released 22 November in UK cinemas – watch the trailer below.
