Jennifer Lee & Chris Buck Have No Idea What to Do for 'Frozen 2'

Jennifer Lee & Chris Buck

If you're one of those Frozen fans who is excited to see a sequel from Walt Disney Animation Studios, you may want to sit down. While there have been rumblings of Frozen 2 from Idina Menzel, one of the film's stars, co-directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck currently have no idea what to do about a sequel. Speaking with BuzzFeed, the duo have confirmed that there is not yet a sequel in the works. There's no script, no development and not even an idea. Addressing the rampant rumors, Buck said, "It’s been in the press that we are doing it, and we would ask each other, 'Are we?'" Well, that doesn't sound very promising.

It sounds like the problem is cracking the story, and Lee says it's not easy:

"It all comes down to the story. Like with the short, it was so daunting until we found the story. Then it was all of the things it usually is and we were thinking of every emotion and moment and feeling. I think that’s all we can do. Until we find our way into what’s next, emotionally, it will feel too big. We just finished the short two weeks ago. One year ago, it was a lot to even think about doing a short. We were quite tired. We don’t really know what it’s like to stop for a minute and think about what we want to do next."

Considering Frozen only just came out at the end of 2013, it would be impressive of Buck and Lee had already come up with an idea and were hard at work. But that's simply not the case, especially since they quickly put together the musical animated short that will play in front of Cinderella this coming weekend with the main characters of the film returning with some new original music (watch the teaser for the short right here). And for now, Buck admits that they have no idea what to do for a sequel, "There is a bit of that drop-the-mic thing. Just go, [drops mic] ‘I don’t know what else to do.'" We're just glad they're not hastily rushing it just because of the demand, but we hope a good story will come along. But even if an idea comes around, this is an animated movie, so it'll be years before we see a sequel either way.

It's admirable of them not to rush into a sequel. The first one was fine on it's own, no need to continue the tale other than for a cash grab.

At least they admit to having no ideas. Way too often they just start shooting with no ideas....

I'd kind of like to see a travel story, like Elsa leaving with Olaf to find out why she's different while Anna is left in charge, and has a dire problem like an invasion to handle until Elsa returns. Did the first one disclose how she has her ability?

How adout No? you like Jelsa? no one cares and why I Hate Jelsa? stop!!! the Jelsa fan to told DreamWorks and DISNEY to Make Jelsa Shit Movie?!? SO Jelsa are mean to DreamWorks and DISNEY to Make Jelsa Shit. I like frozen and i don't want to be hate frozen 2 in Jelsa shit Movie we are frozen fan. let me told you. 1. Jack Frost is technically dead/immortal. Having died and resurrected as a spirit by the man in the moon. Whereas Elsa is alive and has the ability to die. 2. In addition to Jack not being technically “alive”. If people don’t believe in him, they cannot see him nor touch him. Whereas Elsa is fully human and can be seen and touched. (obviously) 3. Jack is hundreds of years old but is permanently stuck at the age of 14 or 17 (different sources state this). Whereas Elsa is 21 and has the ability to physically age. 4. Jack is from DreamWorks whereas Elsa is from Disney 5. In the Mini Fairy section of the art book, it says that "The Mini Fairies are infatuated with Jack." This is explained because Tooth is confirmed to have a small crush on Jack 6. 'Frozen' is the Highest-Grossing Animated Film Ever and 'Rise of the Guardians' flop cost DreamWorks $87 million 7. Jack has his own dream. He wants to protect the children all around the world, not want to be a King of Arendelle 8. with Jack's personalities, I'm sure he can't be a King. he's immature 9. Jelsa shipper don't love Jack or Elsa. they love ice power, blue eyes, platinum/ silver hair 10. No one can see Jack. Arendelle would think Elsa insane if she dated with a ghost (sorry, but it's true) 11. Elsa so talented, so intelligent. she doesn't need a man to help her rules Arendelle. she has Anna to take care of her, Kristoff to help her (Frozen Fever) she is not alone anymore! I'm ok if people shipping them but don't force your ships on everyone. no Jack in Frozen 2. I'm done here.

Yo Jelsa shipper bitches. Let the pro tell ya something here, Jack Frost is from dreamworks and Elsa is from disney, Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck are not idiots like you all that combines other companies work to their. What will really happen here is They will make another character to be Elsa's love-team. So don't ever expect it will happen cause you'll just die in hoping Jelsa will happen and it gave you heart attack because of sadness. Say goodbye to Jelsa and R.I.P to you.
