It's official - prepare to be Frozen all over again as Disney have confirmed a full sequel to the hit film is on its way.
The Walt Disney Company revealed the plans during their annual shareholders meeting on Thursday (March 12) in San Francisco.
Disney tweeted to reveal the first film's directors, Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, are back on board for the project.
John Lasseter, chief creative officer at Pixar, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and DisneyToon Studios, made the announcement with Disney chief Bob Iger.
Lasseter said: “We enjoyed making ‘Frozen Fever’ so much and being back in that world with those characters.
“Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck have come up with a great idea for a sequel and you will be hearing a lot more about it and we’re taking you back to Arendelle.
"We are so excited about that.”
There is not yet any indication of when work will begin or when the film will hit our cinema screens.
Cast member Kristen Bell also shared the happy news with her Twitter followers.
The announcement comes as little surprise considering the incredible success of the first movie, released in November 2013.
It has grossed over £1bn at the box office since its release while merchandising and DVD has seen the figure soar.
Frozen tells the story of Anna, a princess who sets off on an journey to find her estranged sister, Elsa, whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom in eternal winter.
She is helped by an iceman called Kristoff, his loyal pet reindeer and a snowman called Olaf.
The first movie won Animated Feature Oscar in 2014.
One of the film's songs, Make Today a Perfect Day, was finally released on iTunes on Thursday.
Taken from Frozen short, Frozen Fever, it is set to be the new favourite among animation lovers both young and old.
The short sequel to Disney's animated favourite will be played before screenings of Cinderella from Friday (March 13).
