Could Frozen 2 be a much darker sequel?

In a recent interview, Idina Menzel (voice of Frozen‘s Elsa) was asked about the potential for Frozen 2 as well as a stage musical adaptation, and Menzel replied that “they’re all in the works“.

Although the only currently confirmed Frozen animated project is ‘Frozen Fever‘ – a short film about Anna’s birthday set for a Spring 2015 release – earlier in the month, director Chris Buck also said to PopSugar that he thought there were “other stories to tell”.

When your movie becomes the highest grossing animated film of all time a sequel is obviously going to be an appealing prospect. And certainly their fellow creators seems to be up for it. As far back as March, musical duo Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez accepted their Best Original Song Oscar singing ‘Happy Oscar to you/Let’s do Frozen 2’.

So if there is a Frozen sequel, what will it be about? Will the franchise go back to its original source? If so…

I already have my own theories about Genie and his flexible approach to linear time, but since this idea has so many supporters it’s at least worthy of some consideration.

So…

Why The Death Of Disney’s Mother Can’t Explain The Absence Of Disney Mothers

As an obvious fan of Disney Theories and fan speculation I’m always on the look out for interesting theories that might shed light on popular Disney movies.

So when people suddenly start talking about the link between the death of Walt Disney’s mother and the fictional deaths of mothers in his films I’m definitely going to listen.

In this article I explore this Disney mother theory in full, question it, and explain what I think Disney theories are about and why real tragedies are not part of the fun.
