A sequel to the blockbuster movie Frozen is in the works, according to Disney.

The studio’s chief creative officer, John Lasseter, made the announcement at the annual shareholder meeting.

The original film is the highest-grossing animated movie of all time,

In it, Anna teamed up with Kristoff and snowman Olaf in a race to find Anna’s sister Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom in eternal winter.

The announcement of the new feature comes as the stars of the hit are to return in a short film Frozen Forever to be shown to moviegoers ahead of Disney’s live-action Cinderella, featuring Cate Blanchett, out on 13 March in the US and 27 March in the UK.

It centres on an attempt by Elsa and Kristoff to throw Anna a birthday celebration, “but Elsa’s icy powers may put more than just the party at risk”, according to a plot outline.

It also includes a new song from composer couple Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, who took home the Oscar for the original film’s hit song Let It Go.

The company has previously announced merchandise sales from Frozen helped drive the company’s income up 19% for the last three months of 2014.

The announcement came at the same time as they confirmed they had found John Lasseters co director for the 2017 movie Toy Story 4, with the job going to Josh Cooley who has previously worked on both Up and Cars.
