Despite the rumors, it seemed like "Frozen 2" is not in the cards when actress and singer Idina Menzel explained that she was wrong and that a sequel film is apparently not in the works right now, Toronto Sun reporter.
During an interview with Britain's The Times newspaper, Menzel clarified the news, saying she was wrong to suggest that the Disney bosses were working on a sequel.
"Apparently, I spoke out of turn," she explained. "I just assumed because it was so successful, there'd be a sequel."
She's not wrong. "Frozen" was a huge commercial success when it came out in 2013. It earned more than $1.3 billion worldwide, making it the highest grossing animated film of all time, and even won two Academy Awards.
"I think they're working on a stage show, but the Disney people keep things close to their chests," Menzel added, and said nothing more about any future "Frozen" projects.
Menzel, known for voicing Queen Elsa in the film as well as singing its hit theme song "Let It Go," sparked excitement and speculation from fans when she stated last year that more of "Frozen" was coming, according to Variety.
"They're all in the works," she stated, mentioning a sequel and even a stage musical.
While she wasn't asked to take part in the play, she stated that she hoped she might get to return for the sequel, as well as alums Kristen Bell as Anna, Josh Gad as Olaf and Jonathan Groff as Kristoff.
No doubt fans are disappointed to hear Menzel backtracking and taking back her words. However, there is still a little more of "Frozen" to look forward to, such as the seven-minute short film titled "Frozen Fever," according to Coming Soon.
"Frozen Fever" continues the story of Anna and Elsa, as well as Olaf and Kristoff. It's Anna's birthday and after being isolated from her sister during their youth, Elsa is determined to celebrate her sister's birthday this time. However, Elsa ends up getting a cold and combined with her icy powers, she ends up making a mess and accidentally putting the party at risk.
The original cast members returned for the short film, as well as co-directors Jenner Lee and Chris Buck, producer Peter Del Velcho. Robert Lopez and Kristin Anderson-Lopez also returned to introduce a brand new, catchy song, which will hopefully top their award-winning song "Let It Go."
"Frozen Fever" will premiere alongside Disney and Director Kenneth Branagh's upcoming "Cinderella," which will be released in theaters on March 13, 2015.
