Frozen set for Broadway in 2018 - Elsa and Anna bound for the Big Apple

By Claire Williamson

Frozen fans rejoice - the award winning film will be hitting Broadway as soon as 2018.

It had been long-rumoured but now fans of the film will get to see the characters on the stage.

Frozen became the highest-grossing animated film of all time after its release in 2013, taking $400 million at the worldwide box office.

The company have announced that an adaptation of the film will launch in the spring of 2018 following a preparatory production outside New York next year.

The Disney film won two Oscars for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song for Let It Go.

The film's songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez will handle the stage adaptation along with its screenwriter Jennifer Lee.

The excitement for Frozen fans just keeps coming as Disney have also announced a new Frozen film for TV in 2017.

It follows a short film Frozen Fever last year which was aired before the cinema screenings of the Cinderella remake.

It featured Anna throwing her sister a birthday party but things don't go to plan as she comes down with a cold on the day - and of course came complete with a new catchy song.

Frozen stars Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff and Josh Gad reunited for the short film.

Meanwhile a feature-length Frozen 2 has been confirmed - but no release date or production details have been made public.

John Lasseter, the chief executive of Walt Disney Animation Studios, made the announcement at the company's annual shareholders meeting in San Francisco, California.
