The 2013 Oscar-winning film has grossed $1.27 billion worldwide

This news is certainly going to be warmly received by Frozen's legions of fans.

Idina Menzel, who voiced Elsa in Disney's Oscar-winning 2013 hit, told the Guardian that a sequel is currently in development by the studio.

When the Guardian asked Menzel what she can say about rumored plans for an upcoming sequel and stage musical, she replied, "That they’re all in the works, ha ha!"

As for whether she'll be involved, she said: "Ah, yeah sure. … Not the stage show — I don’t know what will happen with that — but the movie, hopefully. We'll see. I’m just going along for the ride."

In February, Walt Disney Animation Studios executive vp and GM Andrew Millstein told The Hollywood Reporter that "there's not a sequel [currently] on the drawing boards," and Disney chairman Alan Horn echoed that in comments to reporters in April.

Released last November, Frozen has grossed $1.27 billion worldwide and took home the Oscars for best animated feature and best original song for "Let It Go."
