A BuzzFeed a few days said the producers are “scared” to make the sequel.
Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck told the site about the development.
Buck said, “It’s been in the press that we are doing it, and we would ask each other, ‘Are we?’ They’d have a date and they’d have a cast and it was like, OK…”
And Lee added: “It all comes down to the story. Like with the short, it was so daunting until we found the story. Then it was all of the things it usually is and we were thinking of every emotion and moment and feeling. I think that’s all we can do. Until we find our way into what’s next, emotionally, it will feel too big. We just finished the short two weeks ago. One year ago, it was a lot to even think about doing a short. We were quite tired. We don’t really know what it’s like to stop for a minute and think about what we want to do next.
Last year, it was reported that Frozen became the fifth-largest film in box office history.
Here’s the top five highest-grossing films of all time
- Avatar – $2.78bn
- Titanic – $2.19bn
