Hey Frozen fans, are you sitting down for this? Actress Kristen Bell just tweeted a bombshell about the Disney movie that has grandparents cheering.
Ready for it? Well, Frozen 2 finally has a release date! The sequel to the 2013 hit movie is due to reach theaters on Nov. 27, 2019—just in time for Thanksgiving. We can’t think of another family-friendly activity we’d rather do after stuffing our bellies with turkey.
Even though the highly anticipated follow-up won’t be out for almost a year-and-a-half, Bell, 36, is ecstatic to be reprising her role as Anna.
The star tweeted: “Quick weather forecast from your favorite disney princess’ sister: Theaters are gonna get Frozen on November 27, 2019! Woo Hoo!!!!”

Since Disney released the original film, Frozen has amassed an astounding $400 million dollars at the box office in the U.S. alone. To capitalize on the film’s success and, perhaps, to please fans who have patiently waited for a sequel, Disney announced Frozen would make its way to the stage and appear on Broadway as a musical in 2017.
Disney hasn’t released any further details about the upcoming release except to say that Frozen 2 would also be available in 3D. According to the studio’s release schedule, Frozen 2 comes on the heels of a Mary Poppins reboot called Mary Poppins Returns. Disney is also releasing another movie in the Toy Story franchise in 2019.
