‘Frozen 2’ story details: won’t miss opportunity to address societal issues

When Walt Disney Animation Studios announced their plans to make an official sequel to Frozen, nicknamed Frozen 2. Directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee will return to bring one of Disney’s most beloved stories back to life for a second go.

Disney-Frozen-Movie-Poster“We’re just starting,” Buck told MTV News at a special screening of the Walt Disney Animation Studios Shorts Collection on Sunday (August 9). “Jen [Lee] and I are just getting back into the story room together and throwing ideas around. We have an overall idea, a concept, which I think is a very strong one. I’m very excited about doing it.”

Even Buck admits to some Frozen fatigue.

“After the feature, and because of how it was received, we were all overwhelmed by the Frozen phenomenon,” Buck said. “It took us a while just to even get back into things and do the short. And it was as we were doing the short that we started thinking about the next one.”

Buck talks about the story for Frozen Fever before looking at the sequel.

“We have two very strong female leads in Frozen, Buck said. “We will keep that going in the next one. We will tackle other issues that, I think, are out there today that boys and girls, men and women, are dealing with.”

“I think we’re very aware of what is happening in society,” he added. “I don’t think any of us take [them] lightly, even though they can be very funny and entertaining, the messages that our movies have and the influence they can have on young people. When the kids [watch] them, they watch them over and over again, and if we don’t have a decent message in there, I think we’ve missed an opportunity.”
