A few weeks ago Disney announced that the much-awaited sequel for its huge hit “Frozen,” was in fact coming. Variety revealed the announcement happened in the annual shareholder meeting of The Walt Disney Company by from the chief creative officer of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios John Lasseter, leaving kids and adults jumping for joy all over the world. Even better, it seems like most of the team including Idina Mendzel, Kristen Bell, Josh Gad and director Jennifer Lee will be teaming up once again. While the characters might present a few changes look-wise (like we saw on “Frozen Fever”) they will pretty much be the same in the sequel.

Now, if this is such good news, you might be wondering why some are saying it’s a huge risk for Disney, and the answer is this will be Disney’s main studio’s first full animated sequel in its 77 years of existing. Of course they’ve done an enormous amount of sequels, but all of them went straight to video, cost only a fraction and weren’t necessarily done by the company’s main studio. Also, in case you were about to ask, let’s just say, they’re not really Disney’s best work… at all.

Another reason why this is a big risk for Disney is that the “Frozen phenomenon” was something the studio hadn’t seen since their golden age in the 90s. In other words, an entire generation of kids has been shaken by the film and will expect the sequel to live up to the first one, so hopefully Disney delivers on these kids' frozen dreams.
