Disney announces sequel for 'Toy Story' and 'Frozen'; details inside
The sequels to "Toy Story" and "Frozen" have been announced by Disney.
Disney CEO Bob Iger made a number of big announcements for fans on Wednesday during the company's earnings call for the year-end 2022 quarter, following the revelation of layoffs and losses. Iger announced that two new installments of the popular brands "Toy Story" and "Frozen" were in the works. A "Zootopia" sequel has also been announced, according to the US-based media outlet Variety.
There are four theatrical installments in the "Toy Story" series and one spin-off, "Lightyear," coming out in 2022. Both "Toy Story 3" and "Toy Story 4" made more than USD 1 billion at the global box office, despite the fact that the latter film was a failure.
In the meanwhile, the 2013 release of the first "Frozen" movie was a huge success, and the 2019 release of the sequel, "Frozen II," brought in more than USD 1.4 billion at the global box office. Aside from the movies, the franchise has also given rise to a Broadway musical, a Disney on Ice show, a number of short films, television specials, and books.
Iger also revealed that Pandora would be coming to the West Coast in the form of an "Avatar" Experience at Disneyland in Anaheim, according to Variety.
A portion of Disney's Animal Kingdom in Orlando called "Pandora - The World of Avatar" is currently devoted to James Cameron's works and features the rides "Avatar Flight of Passage" and "Na'vi River Journey."
'Avatar: The Way of Water' eclipsed 'Titanic' to become the third most profitable foreign film in history on February 5, according to Variety. Three additional "Avatar" movies will be released by Cameron in the upcoming years.
