Variety reports that following the recent success of the live action Cinderella (which went on to gross over $67M on its opening weekend), Disney believes that an animated Frozen 2 would be a huge mistake. The fairy tale loosely adapted from Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen will therefore join the ever-growing list of live action re-imaginations currently in production at Disney; a list that includes Mulan, Beauty and the Beast, Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass, The Jungle Book and Dumbo.
According to Variety, the actors currently playing the Frozen characters in ABC's Once Upon a Time won't reprise their respective roles in the live action feature. Instead, Emma Watson is being eyed to play Anna, while Jennifer Lawrence is in talks for the part of Elsa.
Josh Gad will be Olaf once more but this time through performance capture. And it looks like his character will play a key part in the story, as the title of the sequel is rumoured to be Frozen 2: Olaf Action.
