Disney's Massive Hit 'Frozen' Gets A Sequel....In Book Form....

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist August 11, 2014 at 11:23AM

In a rare display of thoughtful restraint, Disney has made no moves to produce a sequel to their $1.2 billion animated hit "Frozen." Back in the spring, the studio said it would focus on developing a Broadway show based on "Frozen', and just last week hired the film's writer/director Jennifer Lee to take on a different project entirely, an adaptation of the classic "A Wrinkle In Time." But the further adventures of Anna and Elsa are coming, albeit in a different medium.

In a rare display of thoughtful restraint, Disney has made no moves to produce a sequel to their $1.2 billion animated hit "Frozen." Back in the spring, the studio said it would focus on developing a Broadway show based on "Frozen', and just last week hired the film's writer/director Jennifer Lee to take on a different project entirely, an adaptation of the classic "A Wrinkle In Time." But the further adventures of Anna and Elsa are coming, albeit in a different medium.

Random House has announced a new series of books centered on the sisters taking place in the world of "Frozen," with plans to publish three or four books per year. January 6, 2015 will see the release of "Anna & Elsa #1: All Hail the Queen" and "Anna & Elsa #2: Memory and Magic," with two more books arriving next year as well. Author Erica David, an old hand at crafting stories based on animated properties like "How To Train Your Dragon," will pen the books.

Developing a "Frozen 2" doesn't look to be anywhere near a priority for Disney, which is puzzling. Perhaps the Marvel juggernaut and the revived "Star Wars" franchise is sucking up all the available oxygen. [THR
