Kristen Bell: Opnames Frozen 2 beginnen deze maand

Drie jaar geleden kwam Disney met het gigantisch succesvolle Frozen. De animatiefilm van Chris Buck en Jennifer Lee wist twee Oscars in de wacht te slepen, kreeg een shortfilm en een Broadway musical is in de maak. Een sequel kan dus niet uitblijven. Hoofdrolspeler Kristen Bell (Anna) heeft aan Collider onthuld dat ze later deze maand begint met de stemopnames van Frozen 2:

“We’re just about to. They’ve just written it and they’re still doing tweaks, but I think we should be recording this month. 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. 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 heeft echter nog geen nieuwe liedjes ingezongen voor de film:

“No, not yet. We record all the time for different parks or different parks that open overseas, we’ll do a mashup for the rides. So we actually get to go in — Josh [Gad] and Idina [Menzel], Jonathan [Groff] and I — all the time and record new bits of the music. When Epcot center opens we’ll record a bunch of new music. So we have little bits of Frozen in our life at all times, but I’m excited to get started on the new movie.”

Naast Bell keren ook Idina Menzel (Elsa), Jonathan Groff (Kristoff) en Josh Gad terug. Tevens keren regisseurs Lee en Buck en songwriters Robert Lopez en Kristin Anderson-Lopez terug.
