Even though the hype surrounding Frozen has died down since it was released late in 2013, that doesn’t mean the love isn’t still there for Disney’s popular musical from Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee. Plus, the hype will return once Frozen 2 gets into full swing. We just heard the cast is waiting for the script to be finalized before they start recording sometime this year.
