Disney's Frozen Already Getting A Sequel? Filmmakers Tease Plans!

Filed under: Film FlickersDisneyGIFs

frozen sequel

With Frozen closing in on a billion dollars worldwide gross, a sequel may be a foregone conclusion.

But in the past, Disney has been known to throw together straight-to-DVD sequels, often with new creative teams.

In fact, only three Disney animated films have gotten theatrical sequels: The Rescuers, Tarzan, and The Jungle Book. And those weren't huge hits.

But can the glass-ceiling busting Frozen change all that?

Directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee did a Reddit AMA on Monday, and when asked about a sequel, they coyly answered:

Disney Chairman Rich Ross Fired Steps Down After John Carter Flop!

Filed under: Film FlickersDisneySad SadBusiness Blitz

Sometimes, all it takes is one epic bust!

Walt Disney Studios Charmain, and former President of Disney Channels Worldwide Rich Ross has reportedly been canned from his current position, which he's held since 2009, after the $200 million flop that was John Carter landed itself as one the worst film failures in Hollywood history.

In a statement he sent out to his staff yesterday, Ross writes:

For the last 15 years, I have had the opportunity to work with incredibly talented people on behalf of the world’s best loved brand. During that time, we’ve told some amazing stories around the world, created successful TV programming, movies, and franchises that generated new opportunities for the company in the process.

I’ve always said our success is created and driven by our people – whom I consider to be the absolute best in the business. But, the best people need to be in the right jobs, in roles they are passionate about, doing work that leverages the full range of their abilities. It’s one of the leadership lessons I’ve learned during my career, and it’s something I’ve been giving a great deal of thought to as I look at the challenges and opportunities ahead.

I believe in this extraordinary Walt Disney Studios team, and I believe in our strong slate of films and our ability to make and market them better than anyone else. But, I no longer believe the Chairman role is the right professional fit for me. For that reason, I have made the very difficult decision to step down as Chairman of The Walt Disney Studios, effective today.

It has been my honor to work with such incredible teams – at Disney Channels Worldwide and The Walt Disney Studios and the many other Disney businesses I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with. I know I leave the Studios in good hands and, even on separate paths, I am confident we are all destined for continued success.

-Rich

Such a shame that it he has to end his run with the company this way - especially as he was also responsible for the monster successes of Hannah Montana and High School Musical!

But that's the nature of the beast, we suppose - you just never know what's going to blow up and make tons of money, and what's going to end your career in a matter of days!

Best of luck, Rich! You're in our thoughts!
