Frozen fans, the wait is over—or at least, now there’s a release date in sight. Disney just announced that the highly anticipated sequel will hit theaters in November 27, 2019.
The premiere of Frozen 2 will come exactly six years after the 2013 original melted our hearts—and got “Let It Go” permanently stuck in our heads.
The sequel was being written and was about to begin recording as of March 2016, according to an interview with Kristen Bell—who voiced Anna—on Collider.
“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,” she said.
“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,” Bell added.
Disney announced the release date Tuesday on Twitter with a GIF:

It was retweeted by Bell, Idina Menzel (the voice of Elsa), and Josh Gad (the voice of Olaf the snowman).
And if you’re wondering what Let It Go’s follow up hit will be, The Telegraph’s film critic, Robbie Collin, has an idea:
I suspect what they might do is either give the big showstopping number to Anna, or (more likely, I think) to have both sisters sing it together. That way they can draw on the broad themes that made the original film so popular, but explore them in a completely new context.
Possibly the sisters will sing a duet about being stronger together while they’re being kept separate by some villain or evil force, taking verse about, then line about, and then coming together for a big, soaring chorus. Possibly I’ve thought a bit too much about this.
