It’s time to let it go and build a snowman, because Frozen 3 is officially in development at Disney – here’s what we know, from any release date information to cast, plot, and more.

Frozen is one of the biggest franchises in all of Disney, making over a billion dollars with each movie, and the snow train clearly isn’t stopping, as now a third film is on the way.

It was recently announced by Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that a third Frozen movie was currently in development, amongst a number of other sequels and news.

But does the film have a release date? Or a plot? Well, here’s everything we know so far, so carry on reading to find out.

Is there a Frozen 3 release date?

While there is not yet an official release date, Disney has confirmed that Frozen 3 is set to release in 2026.

There’s no official information, but we can make a prediction about the release: since Frozen 1 dropped in 2013, and Frozen 2 premiered in 2019, we can imagine Frozen 3 to drop sometime around 2025. Although, since Frozen 2 was released four years after its announcement, we could actually be waiting until 2027.

We can also predict that Frozen 3 will have a November release date, since that is what happened for the previous two films.

Frozen 3 cast: Who will appear in the film?

As of now, only Idina Menzel has been confirmed for Frozen 3. However, we can likely expect these faces – or rather, voices – to make an appearance again:

  • Kristen Bell as Anna
  • Idina Menzel as Elsa
  • Josh Gad as Olaf
  • Jonathan Groff as Kristoff

We may also expect the return of Martha Plimpton, Sterling K. Brown, Alfred Molina, Jason Ritter and Rachel Matthews to reappear, as all were cast as characters that survived the sequel film.

In a recent interview with Billboard, Menzel confirmed that Frozen 3 was happening and that she’ll be in it, stating that, “All I know is, yeah we are gonna make one, and that’s it. So, I’m like cool I will be able to pay my bills.”

The first two Frozen films were co-directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, but since Lee is now the chief creative offer of Walt Disney Animation Studios, she may be unable to return to direct. However, Buck could return, and Lee may still play a significant role in the production of the threequel.

Songwriting couple Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez were behind the songs and music of the first two films, so it’s likely that this pair will cover the third film.

Frozen 3 plot: What will happen in the film?

So far, nothing official is known about the plot of Frozen 3. However, we can imagine that the film will continue the story of Anna and Elsa, and how Elsa’s ice powers affect their relationship and the Kingdom of Arandelle.

With Anna becoming Queen at the end of Frozen 2, the upcoming film may cover the responsibilities and troubles she has in this role, as well as her marriage to Kristoff. As for Elsa, who ended the last film by becoming protector of the enchanted forest and the Northuldran people, we’ll have to see if these new roles cause the sisters to butt heads.

Furthermore, since Frozen 1 was set during summer – and the eternal winter that Elsa accidentally created – and Frozen 2 was set during autumn, we’ll have to see if the third film will be set in another season, such as spring.

It seems like the cast currently has little idea about the movie’s plot either, with Idina Menzel stating to Billboard that “I don’t know a lot. To be completely honest, they teased it to us, and I have no idea. They don’t show you a script. They don’t show you anything.”

However, it does appear that Frozen 3 will be directly connected to a fourth film with Disney CEO Bob Iger revealing that the team working on Frozen 3 are also working on a fourth movie.

“[Director] Jenn Lee, who created the original ‘Frozen’ and ‘Frozen 2,’ is hard at work with her team at Disney animation on not one but actually two stories.”

Is there a Frozen 3 trailer?

No, since the film is only in early development, there is currently no promotional footage for Frozen 3. For now, feel free to watch this Frozen recap video, which we’ve linked below:
