Frozen Is Heading to Broadway in 2018!
Just when you thought it was over, Disney drops another Frozen bombshell
If you thought it was finally time to “Let It Go,” think again.
Disney announced Tuesday it has plans to create a stage adaptation of the fan favorite, set to hit the big apple in spring of 2018, making the film the ninth musical adaptation for Broadway from Disney’s New York based theatre division.
The show will reportedly utilize many of the same people who worked on the film, including the same writers who came up with the music and scripts. Before taking it to Broadway, Disney will organize a developmental production of the blockbuster, to be performed outside of NYC in the summer of 2017, the Times reports.

Since its 2013 debut, Frozen has seen monumental success, grossing over $1.2 billion worldwide before seeing a rendition of the film on ice, as well as last year’s announcement that a sequel is on the way, following the release of the short film Frozen Fever.
“We enjoyed making Frozen Fever so much and being back in that world with those characters,” said John Lassester, Chief Creative Officer of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios. “Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck have come up with a great idea for a sequel and you will be hearing a lot more about it and we’re taking you back to Arendelle. We are so excited about that.”
