Disney’s Frozen Heading to Broadway
Fresh off a Golden Globe win for Best Animated Feature, Disney is giving their CG animated take on the Snow Queen yarn, Frozen, another go by taking the franchise and aiming it in the direction of Broadway.
According to a Variety report, a spokesman for Disney Theatrical Productions has already confirmed that a Disney musical adaptation of Frozen is already in the early development stage, supporting a Fortune interview in which Bob Iger himself stated that the studio is mulling over plans to adopt Frozen for Broadway.
Frozen songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez are no stranger to Broadway adaptations of CG films, having previously written the Disney Parks stage version of Finding Nemo. Lopez has also had Broadway stage successes with Avenue Q and The Book of Mormon.
