In today’s edition of Sequel Bits:
- Kristen Bell is getting ready to record Frozen 2.
- A familiar face is returning for Kingsman 2.
- Don’t expect to see Space Jam 2 getting made soon.
- Jarhead 3 is a movie that actually exists, believe it or not.
Collider sat down with Kristen Bell to talk about her upcoming comedy The Boss, but their conversation eventually shifted toward the sequel to Frozen. Although this has been an awfully quiet production, Belle revealed that the script was just about ready and that she was going to to reprise her role as Princess Anna very soon:
Not yet. We’re just about to. They’ve just written it and they’re still doing tweaks, but I think we should be recording this month. The story is great, and they exude quality. What I know about that whole team is that they wouldn’t just put something out to put it out. That’s why it took them so long to even announce that we were doing a second one. Generally when you have a first successful movie you want to make a second one. It took them a while because they wanted to figure out what story they needed to tell and what would be important and engaging and I think they found it.
Since voice recording typically begins very early in the process of making an animated movie, don’t take this as news that Frozen 2 will arrive any time soon. There are still a few long years of rendering left before this film can produce a trailer, let alone a finished feature film. The big question now is whether the film will be able to produce an ear-worm as effective as “Let It Go.”
We’ve known that the delightful Taron Egerton will be returning to star in the sequel to Kingsman: The Secret Service and that he will be joined by Julianne Moore and Halle Berry, but now we know another cast member. It seems that Edward Holcroft, whose Charlie seemingly kicked the bucket in the first film, will somehow return for the sequel. Deadline doesn’t have the details, but since Charlie didn’t exactly get along with Egerton’s Eggsy in the original film, we’d guess that he’ll be back in a villainous capacity.
