‘Frozen 2’ Movie Update: Plot Inspired by ‘Ozma of Oz?’ Will Anna and Elsa Battle Against An Evil King?
“Frozen 2” is still a few years before it hits theatres, but fans are already anticipating for the sequel following the huge success of the Disney animated movie. In a recent interview, animation director Chris Buck revealed that there is already an ending to the sequel and the story may have a touch of Oz. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
“Frozen 2” is already one of the highly anticipated animated movies in 2018. Following its huge success in 2014 with a gross earning of $1.27 billion at the global box office and raking in Oscar awards for best animated feature and best original song for “Let It Go,” Mail Online reported, it is no wonder how Disney has decided to create a sequel to the film.
This has left many fans wondering whether or not “Frozen” sequel can live up to the expectations and surpass the success of the first installment. According to the outlet, even animation director Chris Buck admitted that there is an “overwhelming” pressure to create a sequel and even “get past it.”
“We have lots of things to figure out but at least we know where we are going,” he said.
The director also revealed that “Frozen 2,” which is still untitled, already has an ending to the sequel. Buck also revealed that his recent trip to Australia has inspired him in creating the movie’s storyline. According to Venture Capital Post, this recent statement from Buck caused speculations that the sequel will be inspired by L. Frank Baum’s “Ozma of Oz,” as the story takes place in Australia. The outlet also noted the similarities between both stories, as Elsa and Dorothy both have powers within them to “do what [is] needed to be done.”
This news raises speculations that just like Dorothy, Anna and Elsa will be battling against an evil Nome King, who turned the royal family and the rest of the guests into an ornament. Some “Frozen” fans continue to hope that there will be a crossover with “Rise of the Guardians” to give way to the possible love story between Elsa and Jack Frost.
