Evan Rachel Wood and Sterling K. Brown are in talks to join the cast of Disney’s “Frozen 2,” the sequel to the 2013 hit film, an individual with knowledge of the project tells TheWrap.
Kristen Bell will reprise her role as Anna in the sequel to the hit animated film. Idina Menzel will once again voice Elsa, and Josh Gad will return as Olaf while Jonathan Groff will voice Kristoff again.
“Frozen” directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck are back with the sequel as well, and songwriting duo Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez return also.
“Frozen 2” is set for release on Nov. 27, 2019.
“Frozen” first hit the big screen in 2013 — it earned more than $1.27 billion globally, won two Academy Awards (best animated film and best original song) and a Golden Globe (best animated feature film).
The Broadway version of “Frozen,” which is in the midst of its run and three Tony Award nominations this year., features a score by Oscar winners Kirsten Anderson Lopez and Robert Lopez with both old and new songs and a script by Jennifer Lee, the film’s Oscar-winning screenwriter and co-director.
Broadway veterans Caissie Levy and Patti Murin take over as the polar-opposite sisters Elsa and Anna, respectively.
Both Wood and Brown received Emmy nominations which were announced on Thursday morning. Wood is nominated for her work on HBO’s “Westworld,” and Brown is nominated for NBC’s “This Is Us.”
