‘Frozen 3’ Loses Its Leader

On every film set, there is one voice that is the most important of them all: the director. Being a director of a film like Frozen is a massive undertaking. Luckily, Jennifer Lee absolutely knocked it out of the Park.

WhenĀ Frozen 3Ā was announced during The Walt Disney Company’s Quarter 1 earnings call, most people assumed that Jennifer Lee was part of the package. Unfortunately, it seems that that is not the case, and she will be stepping away from the franchise.

Lee is one of Disney’s most valuable assets at the current moment. In addition to her work onĀ Frozen,Ā Lee also wrote the story for ZootopiaĀ and the screenplay forĀ Wreck-It Ralph. In addition to servingĀ FrozenĀ as co-director to Chris Buck, she also worked as a writer and producer.

What This Means for ‘Frozen 3’

In an interview, Lee explained thatĀ Frozen 3Ā is in good hands with the new team. She says;

“I can’t say where we are at with Frozen 3… All our stories are driven by the artists in the studio. Where weā€™re going with Frozen did not come from me. It came from an incredible person. Thatā€™s a new piece, Iā€™ve told no one. And Iā€™ve been blown away by it and Iā€™m just having a blast with that team.”

While this news is disappointing for some fans, we are sure that Disney will place the movie in good hands. In the meantime, Lee will be sharing her talents with the movie Wish.Ā
