Well, Disney just couldn't "Let It Go." The "It," is the animated feature Frozen, which set off a flurry of devotion around the globe and broke all manner of historic box-office records following its 2013 debut. So, what would lead Walt Disney Animation Studios to venture "Into the Unknown" and risk making its first-ever musical sequel by revisiting this mega-successful film? The answer is simple. There was more story to be told.
One question that returning producer Peter Del Vecho was asked repeatedly following the original Frozen was, where did Elsa get her icy powers? Also, where were the sisters' parents headed when their ship went down? And, is there really such a thing as "happily ever after?" As it turned out, returning directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee were wrestling with those questions as well. "We realized there was more story to tell.
Frozen's ending was really just the beginning for Anna and Elsa, newly reunited as sisters," says Del Vecho. And thus, another journey began.
