It’s not hard to see why Disney’s animated fairy-tale Frozen thawed the hearts of so many when it debuted six years ago. Boasting a soundtrack brimming with devilishly catchy earworms, a handful of strong and charming characters, as well as some genuinely heart-warming, top-notch writing, too, it’s no wonder why so many were put under its spell, catapulting it to one of the highest-grossing movies of all-time. No small feat.
While a second installment of the Academy Award-winning animated fantasy franchise hits theaters tomorrow, we’ve heard from our sources – the same ones who said an Aladdin sequel was in the works and that a Scream reboot is happening, both of which have since been confirmed – that a Frozen TV show is currently in development for Disney Plus. Furthermore, we’ve been told that the upcoming series will center upon the adventures of everyone’s favourite fun-lovin’ snowman: Olaf (voiced by Josh Gad).
Due to how early in development the project is, further concrete details remain scarce. However, it’s not hard to envision such a move from the House of Mouse. Clearly, the Frozen brand has gone from strength to strength in a fairly short space of time, and a new animated TV show would undoubtedly give the franchise some extra marketing momentum, while also hooking in more parents and fans into subscribing to the company’s exclusive streaming platform: Disney Plus.
With Frozen 2 launching in cinemas on November 22nd – with apparently even catchier songs than the original – and with a brand new TV series in early development, fans of Elsa, Anna, Olaf and co. certainly have a whole lot to look forward to.
