A sequel to the hit animated film Frozen is heading to movie screens. The Walt Disney Company revealed the news during its annual shareholders meeting on March 12.

A release date and other details about the film have not yet been revealed, but it will be helmed by original directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, who are developing the project with producer Peter Del Vecho for Walt Disney Animation Studios.

Frozen, which tells the story of a princess who sets off to find her estranged sister, won 2014 Oscars for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song. It grossed over $1.3 billion in worldwide box office revenue. The cast of the film is led by Tony Award winner Idina Menzel as Elsa and Kristen Bell as Anna, alongside Santino Fontana, Jonathan Groff, and Josh Gad.

The latest Frozen venture, a short titled Frozen Fever, featuring an original song by Oscar-winning "Let It Go" songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez, will hit movie screens on March 13 in front of the new live-action Cinderella film. A Broadway musical version is also on the docket, but a timeline is still in development.
